BLACKBERRY AND LEMON VERBENA JAM 2 pounds blackberries 1 pound sugar (a scant 3 cups) 4 teaspoons lemon juice 2 teaspoons lemon verbena leaves Pulse the blackberries in a food processor or mash with your hands. You can leave a few berries semimashed to give the jam texture. Add the sugar and lemon juice, and stir with a spatula to marry the ingredients. Pour into a large, heavy-bottomed pan. Place the verbena leaves in a cheesecloth bag and tie the bag to the side of the pot, with the bag submerged in the fruit.

TORONTO - Shares of BlackBerry maker Research in Motion plunged 28 percent Friday after the company posted a loss and warned of future losses despite releasing its make-or-break new smartphones this year. RIM also announced that it will stop developing new versions of its slow-selling tablet computer called the Playbook. Analysts were looking for insight into how phones running RIM's new BlackBerry 10 operating system are selling. It wasn't good. RIM said it sold 6.8 million phones overall versus 7.8 million last year.

WHEN I LEFT my old job a couple of weeks ago, I had to turn in my BlackBerry. I won't lie. I was attached to it; so much so that my daughter, Eve, once caught me scrolling through it when I was supposed to be asleep. She called it my electronic wife. I bristled at the time, but looking back, I think Eve might have been right. My BlackBerry was much more than my phone. She was my confidante. I told her where I was going and when I had to be there. She knew who I called, texted and emailed.

THE BIG NEWS late last week was Mayor Street - starting at 3:30 a.m. - waiting in line for 14 hours, enduring rain and heat and hecklers, so he could buy an Apple iPhone. Wow, we thought, this must be the new best thing for the political class. Information is power, right? So we did a quick survey of 10 top pols to find out who had an iPhone, who planned to get one, who waited in line. The answer? Nobody! None of them had an iPhone. None planned to get one. Maybe our mayor is just way ahead of the curve.

LONDON - Some of the text messages read like real-time rallying calls for rioters. "If you're down for making money, we're about to go hard in east London," one looter messaged before the violence spread. Still others direct looters to areas of untapped riches - stores selling expensive stereo equipment, designer clothes, alcohol, and bicycles. Most show a portent of even worse things to come. Encrypted messages sent via BlackBerrys are being used by mobs to encourage rioting across Britain - mayhem born of an incendiary mixture of conditions that converged during Europe's sleepy summer vacation season.

The day a bug was found in Mayor Street's office, federal authorities confiscated the mayor's handheld computer as part of their wide-ranging probe into possible corruption in City Hall. FBI agents sought the BlackBerry computer hours after Philadelphia police, in a sweep of the mayor's office, discovered a sophisticated listening device and two microphones that the FBI had planted in the ceiling of Street's City Hall office. Street turned the BlackBerry over to Police Commissioner Sylvester M. Johnson, who in turn gave it to the FBI. "They asked for the mayor's BlackBerry.

If past FBI investigations are any guide, there could be more to the surveillance of Mayor Street's office than the planting of a listening device and the confiscation of his BlackBerry wireless e-mail devices, security experts say. For instance, past FBI investigations have employed so-called key-logging software installed surreptitiously on a subject's computer. It monitors every keystroke the person makes, capturing passwords, e-mails, typed Web addresses, and even words that are typed and immediately deleted from the screen.

Getting all those holiday gifts where they need to go - on time - is a chore for many of us. What's the best way to ship packages? What does it cost? Major shippers have their own smartphone applications to help out. USPS Mobile , from the United States Postal Service, is free for Apple, Android and BlackBerry devices. It'll map your way to the nearest post office or mailbox - destinations that are becoming increasingly scarce. There's a zip code looker-upper, a postage calculator, and a package-pickup scheduler.

There's a reason this petite sirah from Lodi's Michael-David Vineyards is called "Earthquake. " It delivers such an intense concentration of inky dark fruit and tannins, it practically rumbles across the palate. Unlike some other, less artful versions of this brawny grape (actually durif, not a misspelled cousin to syrah), this 2005 vintage, discounted by $9 in Pennsylvania, wraps that power with some finesse. There's a haze of cocoa behind the first burst of blackberry syrup, a tremor of tart fruit, a tarry aftershock of black licorice, and then a long, quiet vanilla calm on the finish.

NEW YORK - The long-awaited debut of BlackBerry smartphones flopped on Wall Street. The stock of BlackBerry maker Research in Motion Ltd. started to sink Wednesday afternoon soon after company CEO Thorsten Heins began to show off the redesigned smartphones, the Z10 and Q10. The downturn didn't reverse, even with the publication of mostly positive reviews of the new models. The company introduced the new devices along with a revamped operating system called BlackBerry 10 that emphasizes touch-screen controls, a concept popularized by Apple Inc.'s trend-setting iPhone and various devices running Google Inc.'s Android software.

NEW YORK - Investors sent Washington a reminder Friday that Wall Street is a power player in talks that seek to avoid the fiscal cliff. Stocks fell sharply after House Republicans called off a vote on tax rates and left federal budget talks in disarray 10 days before sweeping tax increases and government spending cuts take effect. The Dow Jones industrial average lost 120.88 points to close at 13,190.84, a decline of 0.9 percent. Other indexes posted comparable losses. The Standard & Poor's 500 index fell 13.54 points to 1,430.15.

Todd Stregiel of Fishtown was one of about 100 still waiting in a slow moving line after the Apple Store in Center City opened early for iPhone 5 sales at 8 a.m. His mission might have been a bit more urgent than others: His iPhone 4 had been stolen the previous day from a class where he teaches. Stregiel, 41, was reading a Nook to pass the time. Friday is his regular day off so he had time to wait. "The phones are status symbols to the kids," said Stregiel, who teaches in a special program to help students earn GEDs.

The bill authorizes use of the devices in areas like a casino's outdoor pool or recreation areas, or in lounges or hotel rooms.
