    There’s something ineffable about using a BlackBerry in 2014. Some of it is pure nostalgia, the kind of unavoidable reminiscence that comes with using a device bearing a 15-year-old brand. But the bigger part is the software: BlackBerry 10 is a blend of old and new, a kind of hodgepodge of traditional successes alongside more exotic ideas that couldn’t flourish elsewhere. And while the company continues to suffer from carrier woes and a steady loss of market share, it’s by no means taking these punishments sitting down: its latest operating system update just recently cleared US ...

    Back at the start of March, Google celebrated the two year anniversary of its Play Store (née Android Market) by offering users a few special deals on apps and media.

    It's no secret that Research in Motion is on a rough patch (to say the least) and that HTC, not so long ago the number one Android OEM, is now struggling too. Its devices are still preferred by millions but Samsung has taken the lead and HTC is yet to release a phone (or an entire line-up) which would boost it back to the top.

    Depending on the operating system you use you might be able to tweak the lock screen of your phone in order to suit your needs. Aside from typical notifications for missed calls, text, e-mails, calendar appointments and such, some platforms (or skins running on top of it, if available) allow you to add all sorts of widgets to keep you informed at a single glance.

Show us your home screen! Regardless of your platform powering your phone (or tablet, for that matter), snap a screenshot and post it ...
