    Here's how you find the other sites when using Android Central. You need to click on that little box to the right of "androidcentral" at the upper left hand corner of the page.

    TY, Laura. Wouldn't you know there's always one that doesn't go with the intuitive, universal layout? LOL

    Android Central used to look similar to all the others, but they changed it maybe about a month or two ago. I wonder if all the other sites will switch to that style.

    I know the designs of all the sites has changed over the years. For instance, CrackBerry had really ugly fonts a couple years ago that looked similar to Times New Roman. Times New Roman (or any serif font) looks great on a printed page but terrible on a monitor. That CrackBerry font did not last long, and then they switched to the one they have now, which is very readable.

    If you want an idea of how all the sites used to look, check out webOS Nation. That one is not actively promoted, since webOS is dead, other than use in LG Smart TVs.

    I remember Crackberry from about 4-5 years ago.
    It was kind of scary being a mobile newbie
    Wasn't the CB store integrated into the site?
    I bought my first "Curve rebuild kit" from CB and hooked up with some on-line friends I still type at today.

    They used to have an app store that was from Mobihand, a company that eventually went bankrupt. I remember I used to buy all my apps from the CrackBerry App Store, rather than BlackBerry App World.

    CB was the first site I joined. I signed up upon recommendation of a friend who told me I had to check it out when I told him a got a BB. He was a BES admin at the time and he had an 8330 Curve. I got the Bold 9000.

    That Bold 8900 was the thing I wanted most a few years back.
    The thing I absolutely loved about the Curve line was being able to "one hand it" the trackball with the real keypad was so easy for me.

    Just something about the little trackball and it's feel that made a connection between human and device.

    My trackball was white and glowed in the dark. I thought that was really cool, since some BBs did not have glowing white trackballs.
