  • BlackBerry: Brace Yourself For An Ugly Quarter [View article]
    I would like to add that it's over for longs. You gambled and lost. Get out now. To the shorts, load up, you know you've won. You can clean up tomorrow, it's the end for Rimm.

    Me I'm going down or up with Chen. All my play money is doomed.

    OK, maybe not!

    Cash $2.9 billion, .01 profit. I won't guess on handsets sold.

    @Randal James

    Read my response to KIA and tell me I've lost it.

    You seem to think that the same people that have money in Blackberry have money in Apple. I do!

    If I want to keep myself clear of suspicion, I would have a few dollars in Blackberry and a whole lot of dollars in Apple. You see, no one can accuse me of bringing Blackberry down if I have a vested interest in seeing it survive. But if Blackberry didn't survive, I would lose a dollar, not the 10 dollars I have in Apple. It's quite possible that America would gain from the demise of Blackberry. After Blackberry disappears, Apple stocks take off, paying off my "bad bet" on Blackberry.

    @KIA,

    "Blackberry is simply a failed company..."

    BlackBerry certainly has had its own faults over the last few years, which aided in its general decline. However, having one of the most secure, encrypted mobile solutions wouldn’t seem to be the primary reason. Then again, maybe Baker knows something we don’t about what happens to companies that don’t give the NSA a backdoor into their user data.

    You simply don't get it! If Blackberry succeeds, freedom is retained. Apple is used, if you know what I mean. It is in bed or it just 'turns it's head" while the government does it's job. But you don't see that. Turning your head? More proof?

    I know, I've already posted this but you dismiss it totally.

    The NSA's campaign to steal Apples secrets. http://bit.ly/1I0KI2H

    The "attack" from America on Blackberry. http://zd.net/1FHFX07#!

    I can go fetch more of this but you guys just might start treating me as an outlier or kook. I'm stating what I read. No one here has ever brought it up.

    Do you every wonder how such an award winning device, award winning software, and the latest software is skipped over by so many? The articles give you a gleams into Blackberry's fall. From what I read, if Apple doesn't play nice, they to will fail.

    Maybe you and me read and comprehend at a different level. I could be wrong, maybe our government is only looking out for our best interest. No?

    @jubatus1,

    "Our neighbours down south continue the Attack on Blackberry with thier smear campaign. Their ultimate goal is to break up the company and aquire the 44.000 patents BlackBerry has. They have failed as their is a whole world out there that needs BlackBerry's security. Iot handsets Qnx Bez 12 BBM Movirtu Secusmart Certicom Paratek. You can all see where I'm going."

    I have to believe America wants to see Blackberry destroyed because it's afraid of what Blackberry can do. I am sure many folks are trying to hack into Blackberry to steal any of their latest ideas since no company in America has an original idea. America is trying to hold back Blackberry long enough for Apple to catch up; good luck with that working!

    You see, there is a lot of profit to be made in phones; Apple is proof of that. Can you imagine all those Apple share holders shaking knowing Blackberry continues to garner awards every year for their hardware and software? Apple wins the profit war, not the design and functionality war. Apple stock is great, I am long the name. The product, useless. What do they have; problems. Problems with weak phones and terrible software; buggy.

    Blackberry needs to hang in there until Apple collapses. But what American wants that to happen? Well, I might be one.

    "Apple uses the same level of encryption as Blackberry and others."

    Really? So why do security minded folks choose Blackberry? This lets me know Apple doesn't know how to apply encryption!

    @cereal,

    "Blackberry device sales will fall to < 4 M per year. When the cost of development and marketing is factored in, they will be losing money."

    When? Give us a date!

    "Blackberry is years behind when it comes to the IoT. Playing catch-up as usual."

    Can you provide data showing "years" behind? Otherwise, its FUD.

    You should continue writing about Apple. I'm an Apple long. BlackBerry long too. The longs will begin to shred apart your "unhackable" secure iPhone. Don't think longs are going to give up on BlackBerry hardware.

    I'm not real sure what the performance chart really stands for. Do folks buy according to how fast a chip trips the lights? Multi-tasking is more important than a micro second beat to the finish line. If its true, then we all should be buying Samsung products not iPhone. Look at your chart. You're good at dismissing everything Apple but here, highlight the dimmest of vulnerability.

    I could go on and I will.

  • Giving Away Free BlackBerry 10 OS To Android Phone Users Could Be Decisive [View article]
    @KIA

    You may be surprised by the lack of Blackberry and BBM, I'm not. I am never surprised to see things like this. It just goes with the territory.

    I will say, if there had been a mention in the article about Blackberry and BBM, the shorts would have done a good job of making light of it or saying it is irrelevant.

    No?
