With all the BlackBerry 10 rumours swirling ahead of the official announcement this coming Wednesday, one new BlackBerry 10 has managed to stay out of the limelight until now. Revealed by Rick Mercer, “Reversal of Fortune” comes with the tag line “We’re out of the shame and into the light.” It comes with a stock tracker that lets you see how much RIM stock is climbing while Apple’s is tumbling, Smug Wipe which lets you watch the smirk disappear from iPhone users’ faces, and Waterloo StreetView which lets you see web designers flock back to Waterloo from California.

The app even reveals the truth behind Apple’s Siri app.
