    One certainly can't see the full picture on the tiny "Classic" screen.

    Research In Motion tagline: "Keep moving"

    BlackBerry tagline: "Next quarter"

    I did not win anything. BlackBerry does what it does.

    However, you can still sell to offset the taxes on your profitable 2014 investments.

  • Why Investors Should Be Buying Alcatel-Lucent, Not Cisco [View article]
    Well, it is too early to tell, really, in my view. Consolidation is necessary amongst the big EU three and U.S. IP transport players. But in which form? There are many possible scenarios, some only pertaining to business units being bought/sold, instead of entire businesses merging.

    Actually, if you remember my comments, I would have thought 400k Passports sold through to be possible.

    Well, then" buy on the dip" to "average down" for "the long term".

    Surely BlackBerry can show a profit on 10m total revenue eventually.

  • BlackBerry Likely To Post Loss In Third Quarter But Focuses On Long Term Turnaround [View article]
    Hardware revenue down 12%. Services revenue down 14%. Less devices sold than last quarter.

    You write many good articles which I enjoy reading, but regarding this yesteryear antiques dealership, I think you can make good profits elsewhere.

    Well, it's quite simple: Less customers buy BlackBery devices. Less customers subscribe to BlackBerry services. Less licensees license QNX. Hence, the revenue sinks faster than in the first quarters of John Chen's tenure.

    As I said before, it becomes obvious with every quarter that John Chen is indeed Thorsten Heins 2.0.

    They made money by not producing much and cutting costs. This is what JCP and RSH did also. The tell-tale signs of a dying business.

    Eventually, costs can't be cut any further and tax benefits as well as governmental carrier subsidies (with the taxpayer's money) will dry up.

    If you stop doing anything productive, you can wangle a "profit" for sure.

    Sales figures just released show it is an oddball OS. Otherwise, more companies and consumers would buy.

  • Notable earnings before Friday’s open [View news story]
    I saw the results and they are not pretty. In fact, they are abysmal. Total revenue down 33%. Hardware revenue down 12%. Services revenue down 14%. Only 1.9m devices sold, despite being "sold out!" everywhere.

    As I said before, John Chen is Thorsten Heins 2.0.
