Research in Motion finally releases the PlayBook’s make-it-or-break-it software upgrade
The much-anticipated software upgrade for RIM’s PlayBook is finally here (yes, the same one that we were told in April 2011 would arrive ”very, very soon”). As expected, the free PlayBook OS 2.0 update includes an email inbox that integrates accounts from various social networks, a built-in calendar and support for Android apps—but still no BlackBerry Messenger. Is it enough to save a gadget that has received tepid reviews, had its price slashed and been overshadowed by executive misbehaviour? Actually, it might be. Techies approve, and deep discounting increased RIM’s share of the Canadian tablet market to about 15 per cent. It also doesn’t hurt that the PlayBook now has a few hockey players on its team (although we’re not sure that it’s helped much, either). Read the entire story [Globe and Mail] »

actually Canadian soldiers carry about 90 lbs bcuease of all the water, and they never drop there packs bcuease Afghan children will steal them. A Canadian soldier fights runs kicks in doors and patrols with all this weight. You would carry even more if you were a C-6or C-9 gunner bcuease of the weight of you ammunition and weapon. However the exception to this is if the soldier is attached to a LAV-3 where his main pack would be kept still though his tactical vest would weight 30 to 40 lbs bcuease of ammo and water. Also the only NATO force that does anything close to what the Canadians do are the Americans, the other countries in Afghanistan stay on their respective bases and never fight.
