    @Bradmeister "lacks a fingerprint authentication sensor"

    Just don't let your little daughter hack your password.

    Oh... get your Passport with round corners from AT&T for your delicate hands.

    @KIA "As I said, Ford will likely not allow BlackBerry provide over the air updates."

    Uh....
    "The more likely case is that Ford's in-dash infotainment would need the update."

    I'm guessing you didn't understand my original post. Of course that's what the QNX Car 2 OTA update is about.

    "Remember it's Ford's reputation on the line here. "

    Which is why they gave up on Microsoft and went with QNX.

    @mikebator "Do you have a solution to having very little time to play?"

    Lose your job? LOL
    There is a guy on the BBM Group that just doesn't sleep much. Maybe when I was 20 I could do that.

    @mikebator Momentics is based off of Eclipse

    It would be nice is they had some drag and drop for connections. But, I find that if you do just a little searching, you can find examples in either QML or c++ for Cascades/BB10 development.


    Or join a good BBM Group with a bunch of developers of all levels who are very helpful.

    @mikebator "PS BB dumped Java for C++ "

    And developers are thankful for it.
    J2ME is a train wreck compared to QML and C++. Most apps could probably be built just using QML with a minimum C++. The GUI creation in QML is miles better than J2ME.

  • Sony Endorsing BlackBerry? [View article]
    @mapodga "Usually with new product soon come fixings. "

    I would assume it is because they are still updating 10.3.1 to roll out to all the devices, and not just for the Classic. The Passport is on 10.3.0 . Of course, when you get to 10.3.1, you lose Flash in your browser.

    Just be glad it wasn't an Apple OS update and that you can still use your phone.

    @mikebator " Imagine if BB IoT QNX configuration allowed you to upload the software without the car needed to be serviced."

    I believe QNX Car 2 is Over-The-Air update capable.

    At least they talked about in 2013 as a service the car companies could use.

    Not sure if a Channel would be the best option, because you have to post before you get replies.

    Groups work better for general discussion.
    A channel for BB Stock articles would get interest, but if people aren't using BBM, they aren't going to see it.

    Well, that's a better example. You endorse Fiat by keeping it around to be the reliable standby while your Porsche is in the shop. You endorsed the Fiat when you initially purchased it and you continue to endorse it by keeping it around.


    What would be a better word to use? It seems some people are having an issue understanding the definition of "endorse".

    "As I know, BIS was dropped, because the users didn't wanted to spend money for that."

    BB10 phones were actually more expensive for the enterprise because they require a "smart phone" charge. When ever a phone was switched from a BlackBerry to either a BB10 or other smart phone, the company I used to work for was charged an extra $50 a month. We still had BES, so this was strictly a carrier charge.

    As other have pointed out, having different phones might not necessarily mean it would prevented the hack.

    However, to Sony, the phone used does matter. Sony determined that using the current phones was not secure enough and they decided to go back to a phone that they knew was secure. So, it doesn't matter how people believe the hack occurred, what matters is that Sony believes that they needed to use BlackBerry devices to feel more secure.

    Curious, but do you consider it endorsement when you buy a company's product? Aren't you giving them an endorsement when you show their product in public? For example, when you drive a new car, doesn't this show that you approve of the company who built the car to the extent that you would want to be seen driving it?

    verb: "declare one's public approval or support of"

    Missing the forest for the trees.

    A claim is that everyone only wants touch screen devices. Yet, a celebrity put a good amount of money in order to fix one of the short comings of a popular item. So, the claim that it wasn't needed or wanted doesn't stand up. Of course, why couldn't Apple build such a device on their own? Maybe they knew they couldn't "innovate" their own keyboard and would be sued as well.

    Anyway, for a company that is dead in the water and not worth buying, it sure gets a lot of attention from certain people.

    "The Sony and Aviva hacking incidents are the full circle for IT departments to re-think their position on BYOD"

    From my experience, it was less the IT departments and more of VP's who had nothing to do with IT and bean counters who didn't add in the hidden costs of the IT department supporting multiple phone OS's.
