Wash. police chief checks Blackberry, hits car

I once lived in Federal Way, and the BlackBerry did not yet exist.

FEDERAL WAY, Wash. – The police chief of the south Seattle suburb of Federal Way has issued a public apology for a minor traffic accident that happened while he was checking his BlackBerry in his unmarked police car.

The city summed it up Thursday in a news release that began “Federal Way Police Chief Brian Wilson is mortified.” Apparently Wilson stopped for a red light on March 18 and glanced down at his BlackBerry to view newspaper headlines and e-mails. He then took his foot off the brake and collided with the car in front of him.

The Seattle Times reports no one was injured and the cars weren’t damaged.

Still, City Manager Neal Beets gave Wilson a verbal reprimand.

The police chief says he takes full responsibility.

Our breakdown of the 500 million apps populating the App Store was correcto: A study by Pinch Media shows only 20 percent of people use free apps again after the first day they download it.
After a month, the rate falls off to about less than 5 percent. Paid apps fare a little better, but not a whole lot, as you can see. It’s pretty remarkable that the average app is so crappy or disposable you only use it for a single day, and within a month, you’re almost definitely not using it. The presentation says that long-term users are “generally 1 percent” of total downloads. These stats—and a wealth of others in the presentation—are based on over 30 million downloads tracked by Pinch.
