    I do the same with my Z30.

    You children say the darnest things. Why oh why have governments chosen BlackBerry BES12 over "other"?

    People will want security when there are no more back stops. I want the least unsecure phone. There!

    Since security is not really what BlackBerry is offering, I guess we will use the term least hackable. And that by a country mile.

    I don't get the comment about the guy getting an iphone 5 and now being able to take a picture and send it. He couldn't do that before? Was he using a Z10 or Z30. Each of those could always send a picture and share it immediately.

    Were the Blackberry's the 9900's?

    Are you implying the BlackDriod is going to continue the same secure systems currently on BB10? Difficult to impossible to compromise?

    "2. It gets hacked, and BlackBerry's 'security story' is destroyed"

    That is a very real possibility. But should they not be given a chance to fine tune? Everyone else does.

    I see Blackdroid as a liability. Crossing my fingers don't work anymore.

    I personally don't see the need for a slider. But what do I know. It's success or failure will not change my mind. Technology is quite boring today. All phones now are slab or some form of it. I like faster....

    I see a shift to IoT. I don't know how much Blackberry is going to benefit. There are a few years lag here before knowing anything. You need to be in one of these companies. Which one?

    @sfinvestor,

    Thanks for taking the time to weigh your phone. Comparing anything other than weight is not a good comparison. The Torch is defiantly old school. Now, if you had compared the Torch with it's "then" competitor, I'd say it would hold its own. No?

    I finally wedged my wife away from her Curve last year. They are much lighter. The battery lasted a week. But who wants to use those anymore? I don't. I still use my Z30 more than the Passport. But using the Passport more all the time. I like the Z30 a lot. Especially with the new software.

    Good luck to you!

    @bwsf,

    I have to agree with you there. It's good when it goes up. Like a vacation, you only take them a couple of times year. I'm living with the downside of this name. I believe it's just not going to be foreffa!

    Good luck!

    @bwsf,

    "A meaningless statement and a proposition the market has thoroughly rejected -- BBRY can't sell its Enterprise grade anything to the Enterprise."

    You can say the darnest things. Just don't take yourself too seriously, we don't.

    Just because a stock has moved in one direction for 2.5 years don't make it a sell. I disagree with your assumption. Crackberry.com is very useful today, yesterday and tomorrow. I will continue following it. I will follow this site and others to gather enough information to make my investing decisions.

    If you and others here weren't discounting everything Blackberry does so quickly, your mussing might carry more weight. Personally, I can't stand the lot of you. You some times, the rest, most of the time. Your group offers little in the way of investing strategies. You and the other shorts will not always be right. Don't get used to it. Blackberry did and it's costing them. I'm betting they put those 3 billions to work.

    Your hubris is deceiving you. But as always, I get nothing out of your being right or wrong. I consider what you say, just not as much as I used to. I'm sure you don't care. I'm good with that. This is an investing site, not a fanboy site. There's much more to my investing than Blackberry.

    Good luck!

  • Apple's Issues In China: More To Do With Currency Than Fundamentals [View article]
    @Alex

    I don't care how many folks want the iPhone and what anyone is saying about China at the moment. Let the market plunge in China take hold a few more months and see if everyone is so cavalier about "up grading" to iPhone.

    Why is anyone taking Chinese consumers temperature so early during the sick phase? Let's not kid ourselves. It take a while for fever to set in. Once that happens, "then" we should analyze their buying habits. Yes, they may still "aspire" to own iPhone, but may delay satisfaction until the fever has gone. And how long?

    @Bob

    Say, copy and paste that when the SP goes up. Please! You guys laugh when the price goes down. Crickets when the SP goes up. This is investing, not boasting when the SP moves. Who cares? You buy and sell today, I buy...........and sell in 10 plus for Blackberry. You can buy Blackberry when you see they've made the grade. We'll both be longs. And I won't give you a hard time. Promise.

    Good luck!

    Don't be surprised by Blackberry coming out with BB10 and Android slider at the same time. They're not giving up on BB10. Get over it!

    You should follow crackberry.com as well as seekingalpha.com.
