Question by eliteguard91: What is wrong with the BlackBerry Application Loader Wizard?
I'm trying to download the Handmark Express into the BlackBerry but every time the Wizard window appears it doesn't show my phone as connected or let me do a scan at all while on the contrary the phone is connected via USB cable and I have the Desktop Manager Installed in the P.C. Please help me. My phone is a BlackBerry Curve 8300 if it helps.

This is going to sound weird, but here is what you have to do -- I just had the same problem with my new Bold yesterday.
With the BlackBerry connected via USB and your desktop manager running do a hard battery pull.
This means pulling the battery out of your device while it is powered on. Leaving everything connected, wait 30 seconds and replace the battery.
When your device powers on again it will be recognized by the desktop manager software.
You may want to do a wipe of your device if you are constantly running into problems - here is a link that discusses these issues :
Surprisingly, a hard battery pull will solve the majority of "internal" problems you will face with your device.

Question by ☻☻☻☻☻: Did Obama's lack of executive experience become evident when he insisted he have a BlackBerry?
The need for a BlackBerry shows he's trying to micro-manage the entire govt and always wants to know every little detail. A good executive will put good people in key positions to monitor and manage the fine details of their dept. What Obama is doing will result in a stress overload and he'll start making major mistakes and we'll pay the price.
I do a lot of IT work for high-level executives and several don't even have a computer on their desk.
These people are decision makers, not playing ball breaker all day.

I don't know one executive who doesn't have a blackberry.
