  • BlackBerry Releases Key Enhancements to Enterprise Software Platform 
    @KIA
    Yes, while it is obvious that they would be doing things, companies make these announcements so that everyone know when those things have been implemented.

  • Initial Sales Indications For BlackBerry's Priv Look Good  [View article]
    @David653 "did you know that Chen did not know how to use the Priv at the earning call in a demo? But yet Chen authorised the use of Android."

    Well, it is very simple. Chen was used to using his BB10 phone, which doesn't require hitting a home button to get out of an app. The gesture control on BB10 is more natural and intuitive than Android, which is why Chen had issues.

  • Would It Make Sense For Sirius XM To Pursue Rush Limbaugh?  [View article]
    "Why do you think Sirius can "provide actual listeners" vs. terrestrial radio's estimated audience? "

    How do they know your radio has a particular subscription? There has to be some sort of handshake back and forth. I get station updates, how does it know that the update completed?

    Anyway, you are probably right, they might not know per channel. But, they know subscription numbers and types of subscriptions.

    There is no current Priv that is compatible with Verizon.

    Not saying that there won't be one soon, but the one currently available is not.

    No other BlackBerry device release until early next year. Most likely around March when they do a software release.

    "but does a listener really need to hear Rush live?"

    People call in live on the air.

    "Besides, how would Sirius control the time of the broadcast to those different markets?"

    Terrestrial does that now. They broadcast it on a time for the East Coast that allows the West Coast to hear live. Only local shows are broadcast when it isn't convenient to broad cast coast to coast.

    It is why some time slots are worth more than others.

    As for a station dropping conservative talk show host. Well, all they can do is drop one, because they can't drop conservative talk, because they know from experience, that's where the money comes from. The other side of the spectrum just doesn't bring in the revenue. Which is why Media Matters Radio failed.

    I will refer to my other post

    "After a quick search Art Bell's Dark Matter plays on AM and then an hour later on satellite Sirius XM Indie Talk (repeated thru the night)."

    They could do the same. Terrestrial can get it live and SiriusXM can get it on one hour delay and then repeated later.

    Since the Talk stations are the only ones with commercials, adding Rush to an existing station would boost listeners. And since SiriusXM can provide actual listeners, vs radio's estimated audience, they can use that information for ad dollars. Plus, the worry about losing ad revenue if Rush says something controversial is pretty much non-existent on a channel that caters to a specific audience.

    But, as everyone seems to want to point out, those Rush listeners only have AM radios in their 1950s trucks anyhow, so adding Rush to SiriusXM would just be for new subscribers.

    vs a $649.99 iPhone 6s with only 16 GB of storage and no SD Card slot?

    No, you said that he's just saying the same thing as he said years ago, which you said you didn't like.
    Then you said you liked Classic Vinyl. Same music as it was back in the 60's + 70's.


    BTW, one of the 5 main stations I listen to. I just wish they played a little more variety or programmed it so I don't hear the same songs about the same time every morning or night when I am commuting to and from work.

    Hannity is already on Patriot Talk.
    I don't see why they couldn't just add Rush to that station. He gets a little extra cash (possibly more listeners) and they get more programs.

    "I find no meaningful difference to what he's saying now, in 2015, to what he was saying in 2010. It's like listening to re-runs. "

    and

    "To me, it's boring, and I'd rather listen to "Classic Vinyl"."

    You can laugh at yourself later for the obvious ironic statement.
