great app for the Blackberry Playbook, Pencil Camera

Great app for the Blackberry Playbook, Pencil Camera, allows you to filter a previously captured photo or to take one with the Playbook’s camera.  You apply one of several filters, pencial, charcoal, brushed, and my favourite, water paper, which gives a water colour look.  The fun part of the processing of the image is the sound clip of a furiously scratching pencil.  My photography hobby goes back to my teens and a 127 film camera.

RIM Blackberry Playbook, why I chose it over an IPAD2 from Apple

  • RIM is a Canadian company and I am a Canadian
  • I believe RIM will resurge in the market
  • Apple seems to be too big in the tablet market
  • When Steve Jobs resumed control of the company he eliminated all of Apple’s charitable donations
  • worker abuse by suppliers to Apple, see NY Times article of Feb. 5 2012
