    A leading provider of personal and business apps for BlackBerry Smartphones has announced that they will provide their personal safety app, Rescue911, for free this holiday season.


    The application itself was designed to provide the user a sense of security, being able to immediately notify family, friends or co-workers of their location during an emergency or concerned for their safety. It can also be programmed to instantly dial 911 with the push of a button.

    12 years ago today, the Vice President and Chief Architect of Sybase, Inc., joined RIM at the position of Vice President, Software. His new position will head the development of software for RIM's wireless communications.

During his tenure there from 1989, David Yach led the development of the Adaptive Component Architecture, which gathered more than 100 Sybase products and placed them all into one cohesive strategy.
