L. Ryan Edsall
Editor in Chief
Started making noise in the BlackBerry community early ’08. Visual gratifications on the small screen. An inspiring place to think, in a world full of new ideals in technological advancements. He began writing to BlackBerry software and theme developers. He offered free insight in to the mind of a power user, and a fan. Many responses began to flow back his way. To this day his current 9550 is loaded mostly on beta applications and unreleased themes. He started writing Reviews for BlackBerry fan sites because he always wanted to share his enthusiasm with the community on what he loved about a theme, app or accessory or how he could tell Developers apart, mostly those with quality products.
Mr. Davis (aka scuebydue) has been an avid BlackBerry smartphone user since the Pearl 8130 made it’s way into his hands. Wanting to get his love for technology and especially BlackBerry’s, he has worked to get the message out to those seeking answers and help. Wanting to review applications and themes, he began teaching himself how to create his own themes and svg’s.
Knowing that, you can only truly understand your love for something, if you fully submerse yourself into learning it works (inside and out). Striving to make sure that the theme/application/accessory end user gets the best product for their hard earned cash.
Andrew (andyahs) has been rocking a Blackberry for over 4 years and began his experience with the Curve and then made the jump to the Bold 9000 and quickly learned everything he could about the phone. He then got his Wife involved in the Blackberry scene as she is in Real Estate Sales and now says she will not give it up. Andrew is in Property Management and his Blackberry is essential in the job he does as he has to be in touch with those who need him and there is nothing better than a Blackberry for that.
He is always on the hunt for great themes and applications to enhance his Blackberry experience and knows what he needs or wants to give him that true ‘I Love my Blackberry’ feel. Andrew has set standards for what he puts on his phone and themes, applications and accessories must meet those standards in order to stay on his Blackberry.
Young media communications engineer with high standards of quality, which definitely puts him on top of the team that carries out testing for BQC. His knowledge, enthusiasm and desire to improve the market for mobile technology, after several years of working with developers, finally brought him to work which allows him to do just that.
His use of the BlackBerry Smartphone is based on the use of different media and demanding applications, which is also linked to the fact that he always bears at least two BlackBerry Smartphones, while talking on the third.

Been rocking her BlackBerry Smartphone since way before you girls changed your first babies diaper. Could never go wrong with that cute and intelligent keyboard. She have since moved on to the 9500 devices. Let me say it’s the hand off her left wrist. Fully integrated into her movements. She put BlackBerry Smartphone products to the test like most women put new pumps or makeup. You can’t Woot Woot her with screen transitions and custom battery meters. She is a chic style geek not afraid to pull some cards.
AJC started working with BlackBerry in 2008 with an 8330. He loved the phone so much he decided to learn everything about the phone and the company. A year later he found Theme Builder and was off from there. He has been through a few BlackBerrys since then 4 8330′s, 9530, 8520, 9700 and currently a 9300. Being a theme developer gives him an added advantage to looking at the way themes are made, but knowing how they are made. To this day he still develops themes. He also teaches developers different tips and tricks of theme developing and does technical support for BlackBerry devices. With this knowledge he can make a very educated review to make sure you know what you are going to buy. You can be sure that when he reviews a theme it is a quality, well made theme and you can be proud to put in on your phone. That’s his promise to you.
