In middle school I accomplished an early teen’s near impossibility every day; I would get home from classes, put my shitty raging puberty hormones away for approximately one hour and sit next to my mom in utter peace and silence.

TORONTO – There’s one indisputable fact about BlackBerry’s new Passport smartphone: it’s different. At a time when so many new smartphones seem to look alike, the huge square-screened, keyboard-equipped Passport certainly turns heads. While most phone makers favour the look of soft, rounded corners, the Passport is unapologetically sharp and boxy, inspired by the aesthetic of modernist architecture. It’s also inspired by travel documents. The Passport phone stacks neatl ...
