Have you ever wished you could remotely control your BlackBerry 10 phone? At times, this can certainly come in handy, and after starting my new career in 3D software development and touch-less interaction, I couldn’t resist seeing what this could do with my brand new BlackBerry Passport.
Caution: Your mileage will vary. This is not a stable or official solution at this time but it does work. In the meantime I’m looking at building a Cascades or Unity solution!
First, it helps to know what Myo “is”…
Missing Plugin? That means you have flash disabled (it’s a YouTube video) or that you are using BB10.3.1 and you no longer can use flash. Click on the title for the full article

This release qualifies Secure Browser for BFB, and brings many new features to the browser. Once everything is approved and ready, stay on stand-by for some free promo codes
Thanks to everyone for all their hardwork with testing and Devan for his great efforts helping to bring SB up-to-speed in Cascades.

What’s better than a game on your BlackBerry 10?
Many different games on your BlackBerry 10!
Well, thanks to some open source code that was left around by these awesome guys, I was able to port the code over to BlackBerry 10 and to build a fairly decent looking GUI for the GB emulator I did spice it up a little bit and the emulator seems to be running pretty slick! However, this is an early beta!

After a lot of hard work, I’m proud to announce a new Secure AntiVirus Pro release!
There is so much new, thanks to the amazing work of Roger LeBlanc, and some amazing Beta Testers including Razvan, Dean Logan, Diego Nei, Glenn Kocak, Jeremy Duke, JayDee, Joe, ZanBB, Tom and many more!
The amount of features is huge, and difficult to list all at once. But I can give you a few sneak previews
Some of the key features:
Cross-device support (So when you move from a Z to a Q, the scanner comes with you) - Headless support (Monitors what files need to be scanned in the background) - Warns you if you haven't scanned in a while - Sporting a new Black Theme - Now supports 5 languages! (English, German, Indonesian, French and Spanish) - Integration with all cloud services (Including Box, DropBox, OneDrive) - Now can even scan your computer over BBLink! - Added Pebble (Talk2Watch) and UpFront Integration - Many customization options - make the AntiVirus do what you want it to do - Frequent definition updates (Now daily!)
It’s been quiet for me on the BlackBerry front for quite a while. I have a couple of projects coming, so do some other developers, and we’ve been on boarding some beta-testers. I thought hey, why not share some of those details in case someone is interested in how to join!

This is a quick FYI troubleshooting tip!
If you compile your BAR file using Unity 3d for BlackBerry 10, you may find the following error occurs when you attempt to upload it or transfer it to your device using Chrome:
Install CircleTap2.5 – Pro.bar: failure 881 required signatures missing (RDK, AUTHOR)
The technical explanation above is that it wasn’t signed as a Release Bar. This could mean you signed it only with a debug token, or it could mean that the signing failed completely. To check this you need to review your Unity Console Log.
When you look at the Unity console log, you may see this error:
Certificate chain not found for: -. – must reference a valid KeyStore key entry containing a private key and corresponding public key certificate chain.
When you encounter this issue, there are several possible causes. For me, everyone I’ve spoken to seems to have the first issue…
- Make sure when you are using File > Build Settings > Build that you have no unusual non-English characters in the BAR name.
- Absolutely make sure there are no spaces in your BAR output filename.
- Check that File > Build Settings > Player Settings, are configured properly to use your signing tokens.
- If the issue still persists, you may need to test Cascades or another IDE to see if it is a problem across all programs with your signing key.
After recently getting an Arduino Yun from Newark Canada, I decided to put together a fun build video for IoT fans out there! This video will show you how to build your own Arduino Tweet Box using an Adruino Yun and an EMIC2. For fun, I decided to add a 2 line LCD as well (for folks who don’t have an EMIC2 or found it to be too pricy).
What will it do? Well, we are going to use an Arduino Yun to access Wi-Fi, this way we can bring the box anywhere we want to go. We are going to leverage the Temboo service – which means we can add RSS feeds, Facebook, and so on (although in this article I will only cover Twitter). And we will set it up to read your tweets out load and to check for tweets every 60 seconds!
