It's Polish Independence Day, and like in any other country, the youngins love celebrating their country's liberty by destroying parts of it. "Youths" butted heads with (and threw things at) riot cops in Warsaw. Check out the view from above.
Are these two new OS 7-running BlackBerrys enough to dig RIM out of its recent troubles? In a word, no. But the kids will love the new all-touchscreen body of the Curve 9380, and suits will love (read: tolerate) the virtually-unchanged Bold 9790.

Instead of having an obnoxious wedding photographer trying to grab candid shots of the guests during the reception, Instructables user letMeBeFranks built this gigantic Lomography camera that served as a private photobooth.
