I am participating in the Verizon Wireless Ambassadors program and have been provided with a wireless device and three months of service in exchange for my honest opinions about the product.
About a year ago, I decided to ditch windows and go with an operating system that was a bit more secure. I guess you can say, I got tired of having to do fresh installs of windows every few months due to viruses. It didn’t matter how protected I was, with doing everything I do on-line, something managed to get in and infect me.
So with having a non-windows computer, sometimes certain things I do can be a challenge. However, I like a good challenge, and with Google on my side, I can pretty much get certain things working as if I were on windows.
When I first started working with the BlackBerry smartphones, I noticed when I hooked them to the computer via usb, Ubuntu didn’t detect it, like it would with my android device. This was bothersome, because it meant I would have to email myself all the pictures and videos I took while testing the phone. This was going to be a long and not so fun task.
So after some looking on-line and using Google to my advantage, I discovered a how-to on how to connect the BlackBerry to my computer and get my images!
I would love to see more support on Ubuntu for BlackBerry, but until the time comes I am happy to be able to get my images from the device without having to jump through a bunch of hoops!
I have been playing around with the BlackBerry Q10 for almost a month now, and so far I am loving it! Over the next few months, you will be hearing a lot more about the Q10 from me via twitter, facebook, and of course the site. So, if you’re wanting to know more about the phone and the fun apps I find continue to follow a long!
