    This Monday, October 20th, begins the FIRST EVER Blackberry Developers Conference, held here in my home state (well, my second home state ) of California! I am soo psyched to know in just a few short days the Bay Area (formerly known as the Silicon Valley) will be swarming with thousands of Blackberry Abusers and Developers alike! You will also be able to see, up close and personal, the new Storm at the Verizon Booth -- so definately do NOT forget to go by and see first hand. Are any PinStackers attending the conference? Let us know!

    Trapster is the first and only real-time speed trap sharing system, the modern day equivalent of flashing headlights at other drivers. Trap reports are updated instantly so users can share where police traps actually are, not just where they might be. It takes advantage of user input and the power of the community to provide not only the trap information, but also to arbitrate the veracity of that information. Trapster is now over 100,000 users, with more than 50,000 traps, speed camera, and red-light camera alerts in the system. Trapster is provided at no cost.
