  • Can BlackBerry Shoot For $20? [View article]
    While I'd LOVE to join the bandwagon on the 'short pop' of share price, I cannot say that I'm that optimistic it will happen - not that shorts won't cover, but that the pop will be there. It was not so far in the recent past that short interest was up in the 180 million share range - now it is half that amount and the share price has only rebounded a couple of bucks. Sadly, at the rate in days that those shares were given back to their rightful owners, there could be little or no pop at all if that trend continued. I hope I'm wrong. :)
    Long BBRY, and still loving my Z10.

  • Sell BlackBerry. Buy Apple. [View article]
    I keep promising myself that I won't click on Kofi's rehashed articles, so I haven't for several now. Today I thought - Hey, what the heck, I'll give him a try. Error. I'm sorry he gets the two cents for my click... his article isn't worth that much.

  • BlackBerry: Time To Start Improving [View article]
    David,
    No sarcasm here - I truly hope you get the chance to showcase your stuff somewhere. You have been so persistent in your innovation comments for the past year that I sincerely hope you get a shot at making it somewhere and making it big.
    However, I cannot concur with your comments, almost ever, about BlackBerry not innovating - I've seen the other products (iOS 7 closing apps the same way PlayBook did three years ago, the "hub" reality etc.), and everyone else is playing catch-up to BB10. I can only say that they are innovating in a different way than what you think they should - not that they are not innovating.
    If you ever do get the break and get your product out there, please post when and where because I would give it an honest-to-goodness shot.
    While we disagree, all the best.

    Considering that BlackBerry was the first company to bring smartphones to the masses, can we not say that iPhone and Droid products are the 'lookalike products'? You never give any credit where credit is due... just bash and slam, telling us all how your inventions would be better. Well, I for one, am waiting with baited breath to see your innovation - you certainly seem to think you have it nailed in your garage or basement. Trot it out and let's hear about it.

  • BlackBerry: I Missed It, Now What? [View article]
    @Kurt
    As soon as the For Sale sign went up on BlackBerry, it was my opinion that Microsoft was the most logical candidate to buy it. BlackBerry roots grow deep and wide in enterprise soil, and Windows OS's of various ilk rule just about everywhere that business is done on a desktop PC. It seemed like a natural progression to me - but obviously not to Microsoft or else they'd have hopped on the Heins bandwagon instead of Nokia's. That said, I like the way John Chen is handling things very much; but if MS does plan to buy, it better be at a price point north of $20 - no $9 deal for this investor.
    Cheers.

    @xoleo
    Interesting, your comparison of Apple now to MS then. I see what you are saying, and it makes some sense, for sure. Thanks for commenting.
    Cheers!

    @abigchocolholic

    No worries, I got your hyperbole the first time. I disagree with your dichotomy. The difference is time - Apple mid 90's to BBRY's last few years. They both offer world class technology - best in class IMHO - for what Apple does for computer OS and BBRY for mobile tech. For this similarity I will most assuredly put both companies in the same sentence. Unapologetically, I must say...

    I'm a big fan of Apple computers - diehard, actually - and BB10 phones. Seems incompatible to some but not to me. I love my Z10 - best phone I've ever had (waiting on contract to upgrade to Z30 or equivalent in time). But the statement, "Apple runs the world..." is a little beyond even me.

    Now you are getting to the second verse of the same song you've been singing for months. First verse: 'They all have the same level of security'. Second verse: '...and probably all have the same level.' I'm enjoying the metamorphosis, but I'm still waiting for your response to my repeated requests for links that confirm verse 1. Waiting... and waiting... and waiting. Please provide links that the other platforms are as secure as BlackBerry. Thank you.

  • Positive News Flow Propelling BlackBerry Higher [View article]
    The good news just keeps rolling. Way to go, John Chen, and way to go, Team BlackBerry - you've been taking it on the chin for a long time; but like Rocky, you just keep coming back! Cheers!

  • Bloomberg: BlackBerry to get major boost from Ford [View news story]
    Idgregg
    It would be a stunning oversight by an American company to overlook the 'Apple' of American eyes when it comes to mobile devices. Therefore, I personally believe it is safe to assume that QNX really IS that good for Ford to stake the future on the BlackBerry rather than on an Apple offering.

  • BBM Is Worth More To BlackBerry Integrated Than On A Standalone Basis [View article]
    With the short interest half of what it was six months ago and declining, I don't see that enforce as much (although undeniably still present). I think there are a lot of day-traders making several percent daily from the flux, and tons of people waiting for the first full quarterly report under John Chen's leadership. Lots of folks got burned under TH's hype, and most are reticent to do it again. When the good news begins to flow on the balance sheet - I mean any seriously good news that has staying power - then the stock will break all of those resistance barriers for the next five dollars upward. Until then, the seesaw continues.

    Most of my immediate and extended family use BlackBerrys, and we are not in the military, the government, or big business. We use it because it is a superb, secure device.
