Back to the grind this morning…

1. Research In Motion (RIM) is offering free apps for Blackberry users after an outage that lasted more than three days. No e-mails and no BBM for 3 days? You’re going to have to comp my bill if you want to keep me around… of that’s right I have an iPhone. :) [Mashable]

4. Samsung really doesn’t want the iPhone 4S to go on sale in any country. And yet, we’re not surprised. [Reuters]

5. Google is upping their game with a soon-to-launch music store. Cause why not? [Business Insider]
