  • BlackBerry May Exit Devices Business If It Remains Unprofitable [View article]
    @bud zeedee,

    Google "sold" their failing hardware business to Lenovo. Why wouldn't someone buy Blackberry? Or is it because it's Blackberry that no one would buy it? Who wouldn't want to sell 12 million phones a year....?

    jeepers keepers!

    I think we should work on stopping all the volcano eruption instead! They seem to be the biggest problem. http://on.doi.gov/1m6kR1z

  • U.S. appeals court upholds hazardous air pollution rule [View news story]
    @choiminshik,

    "Yes, its better to get cancer from pollution but be energy independent. Simplistic American right/left thinking."

    As apposed to getting cancer from over-eating, smoking, doing drugs, sitting around and doing nothing, getting high on sugar, fat,...

    Pollution kills how many people in the USA per year? I have no idea. http://huff.to/1jJ7LUt. But more people die from wood stoves than other forms of pollution.

    Or do you believe this article? http://wapo.st/1jJ7LUv. Pollution must be getting worse or statics are questionable.

    http://bit.ly/1jJ7LUw MIT says 200,000 from pollution in the USA. Believe it? Why/why not?

    How many die of being over weight? http://nbcnews.to/1jJ7NeZ Believe it? Why/why not?

    Smoking? http://1.usa.gov/1jJ7LUy Your friendly CDC. Believe it? Why/why not?

    And you want to make it more expensive to live here in the USA? Why?

    You think burning coal will kill us? Wood will....

    Any CEO would drop their handset division "if" it does not make money. That is a good move. He keeps his job. I'm thinking Google?

    @Mr. Knowitall, I think you would have written a much more informative article....

    And did you say long? Yes, it's down too much now. I'm glad someone saved you a seat there. It's just so weird you saying "long". Funny too.

  • BlackBerry invests in healthcare software firm, will jointly develop phone [View news story]
    @Mr. Knowitall,

    There is sooo much pessimism around Blackberry. This is why anything that Blackberry does it met with a dismiss.

    If this were a start up with a completely different name, people would be pricing the advances so much higher.

    IBM created a market that was overrun by Microsoft; they're still here. But your on the other side of the trade...for now.

    @Mr. Knowitall,

    "Your QNX powered auto automatically creates a BBM Chanel to which you may subscribe. You can then go there for a complete review of your car's health and current status (speed, direction, position, fuel level, engine temp, RPM, etc.)


    This is especially handy if you car is ever stolen!

    Awesome comment!! Hilarious

    It's another notch in the belt. This is new and better because of QNX. Don't look for failure here, NantHealth can't afford it. That's why they call Blackberry not Apple.

    @Mr. Knowitall, Apple is good at killing their phones. Apple and Blackberry don't deserve to be placed in the same environment anymore.

    Blackberry is seeding, sowing later. Apple is rotting on the tree.

    @Mr Knowitall,

    I do for sure. I think Stickers will put BBM in a different light by some small margin with those youngsters who have considered BlackBerry.

    Not all Stickers are free and there are a variety of ways to market anything for money where you can get the same thing for free. I'm thinking bottle water or a glass of free water. I own restaurants, I sell more water than give it away. Though I try!

    Anywho, it's money in the bank.

    Now if someone can put Malware in those free Stickers where the NSA can spy on you, BBM Stickers would be preferred as we all know they are secure...:). Think this is next?

  • Apple Faces A Problem And Increasing Prices Will Make It Worse [View article]
    @chenmj,

    Can you provide a link to your statement? Chen NEVER said he was getting out of the handset market or considering it. Trying comprehensive reading. And make sure you find the original conversation with the Rueters reporter for a full review of the questions in context.

    What you have shared is what you have heard.

    @Mr. Knowitall,

    And Apple is firing on all cylinders and look at the stock price! I would not blame it on the broader decline...

    I believe investor want a lot for their money today, they could be safer with Blackberry.

    @shaned,

    Business folks may download stickers but the Asians will by the millions. BBM has added millions of new users who are the target audience. Most are not business folks.

    @barnsey,

    "Stickers is pretty goofy".

    I have to agree with you but millions of other folks think it's neat.

    Remember the Chevy Goodtimes vans? Pretty goofy but boy did they sell.

    @barnsey,

    Can you show me where anyone claims that Stickers will support $5 billion cap?

    As had already been shared, it has to the bottom line.

  • BlackBerry: I'm A Buyer On Monday - Yes, Again [View article]
    @TimmiesRegular,

    The fact that Apple can't compete with security should be telling. They are supposed to have the best engineers money can buy (maybe they do), but this latest update shows they are no gods.

    I firmly believe Apple will find themselves in Blackberry's position of having to introduce a different OS if they hope reach a wider audience.

    IMO, they're running on just their name.

    @Ellas,

    I have had little success moving friends to BB10'S. My lawyer went back to BlackBerry (Z10) from her iPhone 5s. My daughter got her iPhone 5 back from Apple store. She's happy to get it back. But is still having problems with a lot of features she used to enjoy. She said that those features will just have to go by the way side cause she doesn't think Apple can/will fix all the problems on her phone.

    My outside sales guy turned in both his and his wife's iPhone 5s two weeks ago (T-Mobile) to get them fixed. They gave him flip phones. He was ferocious. They then sent him Galaxy Note 3's. He saw/used my Z30 and ordered two Friday. I told him T-Mobile had a deal on Z10's! He wanted the latest and greatest from BlackBerry. He shared that he had switched to iPhone while waiting too long for BB10'S. He said the latest Apple update put him over the edge.
    Thing is, he was looking for the new BlackBerry phones in the T-Mobile store but never saw one. He really is looking forward to the BlackBerry experience again.
