Google added 750 people to its Manhattan office in 2011

The internet giant has expanded heavily with 4 new NY offices and adding 38% more staff in the recent years, especially in New York City. After acquiring four New York companies and going on a hiring spree for its media and advertising arms, Google now has about 2,750 employees in New York City, a 38% increase from 2010, the company told The Wall Street Journal.

Gmail on BlackBerry

 googlemail Long time no post, which is related to my start on the new job.

However, I have just fixed my Gmail problem on my BlackBerry (BB). It is not a major thing, also probably a “rookie-to-bb” issue, but very useful to know as it affects the Gmail and Gmaps applications. I downloaded the apps via and all went smoothly. When I filled in the username and password, however, the message “Network Error: java.lang.Runtime Exception: Unexpected server response: 401 Unauthorized.” appeared.

To fix this problem you have to go to Options > Advanced Options > TCP: set APN to orangeinternet, (leave username and password

That is all… My BB journey has just started but I hope I will not have many issues with it : )
