BBM Is Coming To Gingerbread Android Phones

800px-HTC_Evo_4G

BBM will soon be available for Android phones running Gingerbread. This is a shockingly brilliant move which allows BBM to fully compete in developing countries where BBM is already an established brand, but current smartphones are still running the legacy operating system.

As Chris points out at Engadget, despite being generations old, Android 2.1.x Gingerbread still powers 21% of Android phones. A lot of those devices are located in emerging markets where new messaging apps, like WhatsApp, Line, and Facebook Messenger, are quickly gaining in popularity. Recent numbers suggest that BlackBerry cannot count on consumers in these markets, or any market for that matter, to jump on the BBM ship by buying one of its smartphones, so the company is making it available on competitors’ hardware.

As the current version of BlackBerry sinks into obscurity, a new BlackBerry is emerging. For better or worse, this version seems a bit more lean and focused. Today’s update to BlackBerry OS 10 feels like a company clearing its current product pipe as it moves away from the cut-throat consumer hardware market.

A public beta will be released prior to the full launch in late February.

Artists design iconic architecture using only gingerbread and candy

The designs of such architects as Frank Lloyd Wright and I.M. Pei are unmistakable — most people would recognize the Louvre or Guggenheim Museum anywhere and in any medium. For better or worse, so is the Candyland-esque aesthetic of the gingerbread houses people see around the holidays. Artists Henry Hargreaves and Caitlin Levin decided to play with those ideas, recreating famous museums and galleries from around the world using only gingerbread and candy.

The pair showcased Gingerbread and Candy Art Galleries at Miami’s Art Basel festival earlier this month. Each image of their sculpture is shot in black and white, “a deliberate antidote to the vivid colors and sweetness” associated with gingerbread houses.

A Gingerbread Hogwarts School Of Witchcraft & Wizardry

gingerbread-hogwarts-1.jpg This is the gingerbread Hogwarts constructed by Cherry Bay Cakery using a lot of gingerbread, royal icing, and over 50-pounds of fondant. It took control of 100 hours to finish, so it was definitely currently stale by the time it was finished. However would that stop me from taking a bite? Yes, I’m not a heathen. I remember when I was maturing though I had a more youthful coz (who prefers to remain anonymous but whose name is Graham) who would consume the stale cookie ornaments and strings of popcorn his household held on their Christmas tree. Plus an additional time we were playing a board game and somebody made him laugh so hard he shot Coke out his nose. Not a little either, like many of a can. Then he licked some of it off the board. I quit after that. Strange some kid. Keep choosing a couple more shots.

Game Of Throne’s Winterfell Recreated In Gingerbread

gingerbread-winterfell-1.jpg

Because everyone’s sporting megaboners about the return of Game of Thrones next month, right here’s Winterfell Castle recreated in gingerbread and a lot of various other diabetes magnets by blogger Liquorsnapper (sounds like my kind of blogger). Also, have not you seen that commercial? You should call your physician. Look at the size of that one Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup! Still, ten bucks states I could possibly siege-eat the whole castle by myself in a single sitting and still have space left over for dessert. I’m thinking Choco Tacos.

Struck the jump for a bunch of closeups.
