In the mid-1990s, almost nobody knew what the Internet was. The few businesspeople and hardcore geeks who used electronic mail had to hunt for telephone connectors so they could hook up their laptops on the move. Cell phones were bulky and expensive. One-way pagers delivered only short messages. Texting didn't exist. One of the driving forces behind the wirelessly connected world we take for granted today was the emergence of the BlackBerry. In 1995 a tiny company from Ontario, Research in Motion, conceived of an e-mail device that users could wear on their belts. To reduce the amount of space required by the electronic components, RIM needed to partner with a semiconductor company that could integrate the different functions into one microchip. Enter Intel. Though the BlackBerry's success seems like a foregone conclusion today, both operations faced enormous challenges.Harvesting the BlackBerryoffers an insider's perspective on how the world's number one semiconductor company and an unknown start-up overcame technical obstacles and internal politics to produce one of the most ubiquitous computing devices of our time.

Mid-life crisis is not a crisis-it is a passage into joy. This was the essential truth discovered by the four women of a certain age, founding members of the Blackberry Tea Club, which began as late-night conversations while sipping blackberry tea with a little kick added. Those conversations about children, men, jobs, weight, clothes, food, travel, gossip, politics, medicine, healing, spirituality, adventure, and books grew slowly, beautifully into the Blackberry Tea Club and the discovery of the Glory Years. The Blackberry Tea Club weaves together essays, stories, and poetry, celebrating mid-life in all its silliness, sorrow, and glory. Bottom line: middle age is much more than menopause. These are the Glory Years for women, years that bring about the expansion and reorganizing of the mind, heart, and spirit, and the birthing of a larger self of immense compassion, intellect, will, spirit, love, and capability. Divided into five parts, each one explores different themes: * Seeing mid-life crisis as an adamant search for joy * Discovering opportunities for women to appreciate their bodies * Exploring multiple facets of love * Letting go of the bad stuff to relish "what light there is" The Blackberry Tea Club offers stories of adventure, food, spirit, and the community of women in their Glory Years.

From its relatively modest debut in 1999, Blackberrry has become one one of the most popular technological products in the world. Research in Motion – the phenomenally successful company behind Blackberry, which began as a student start-up – has already sold over 75 million smartphones, nearly half of which were sold in the last year alone. This book is a never-before-seen, behind-the-scenes portrait of RIM and its amazing CEOs who are two of today’s most respected businessmen: Jim Balsillie and Mike Laziridis. It explores in detail not only the company’s early struggles against much larger and much better known firms, but also how RIM has been able to maintain and exceed even its own lofty expectations. With thousands of hours of interviews with people close to the company, including unprecedented access to company founders Jim Balsillie and Mike Lazaridis (they are writing the foreword), award-winning business writer Rod McQueen has crafted an arresting narrative telling this incredible story.
