      I have seen some information about tickets on Digital Summer Camp website, so I'm a bit worried

    A couple of last minute changes now put me on the other side of London so unfortunately I can no longer attend.

    Unfortunately I'm going to have to bow out as well. Shame, but I'll keep an ear out for the next event.

    Cant make it now, however please fix BB10 issues (no Calendar support with iCloud), BB Link for Mac doesn't do calendar sync, so if you're a Mac user, BB10 is pretty useless :( Shame could have poached iPhone users
