  • BlackBerry: Turnaround Fantasy Or Likely Reality? [View article]
    @HZ, I'm curious by what you mean by only one ring tone, I set my Z10 to play a Bob Seger tune, no problem.

    @Mapodga "This is really dumping. Everything free. And free forever. Is is like shareware."
    That statement is incorrect, Everything is NOT free. JUST the license. Service and support are EXTRA. Additional features are EXTRA. If you upgrade to a gold license, which BBRY will be pushing, that's EXTRA.
    Please, lets give them credit for some intelligence.

    ahhhh, How about profitability (1 cent a share this QTR), a larger bank balance (now 31B), new services (secusmart, etc), new products (passport, classic,) New alliances (nanthealth, samsung, vodaphone etc).
    And in JUST 1 year.

  • No China Deal And Samsung 'Partnership' Raises Questions For BlackBerry [View article]
    @KIA, do you know who the top ten company that jc mentioned has signed up for BES12 is? Surely a KIA knows who it is. I know and I don't know much.

  • BlackBerry: It Is Hip To Be Square [View article]
    @pvshah "Classic is made for BB by Foxconn ". Where did you find this info? It's my understanding that this phone is aimed at the business market and thus would be made in NA.

  • BlackBerry: Make Certicom Patents Licensing More Affordable [View article]
    This article and some comments I've read try to make the point that BBRY should either change very little or next to nothing to license their Cercomm patients. As a business owner, to me this makes no sense. To do so at this time would be like a baseball team selling their bats for firewood to raise money for the new season. They would have to be VERY careful about who they licenses to and at what price. Apple and Google should pay the most. I would charge them $100 a phone.

  • Bill And Chuck's Incredible Journey - Apple's Blowout Launch Weekend Revisited [View article]
    Great article. Keep up the great work Michael. I agree with you that Cook puts the best possible spin on sales. Unfortunately if you did the same with any other CEO's sales announcement, you would get the same results. Perhaps if company's were forced to release exact numbers for orders, sales to resellers, sales to corporation, and sales to end users then investors would have a better picture of what in going on. This is something every investor should be aware of and let that awareness guide there investing.

  • See The Bigger Picture On BlackBerry's Latest Financial Numbers, Outlook And Strategy [View article]
    JC seems to be using the gradual rollout of the Z3 as a cushion against the decline in safe fees. This also avoided a spike to profitability and then down again. Awkward to explain.
    Great article, helps my understanding.

  • BlackBerry Is Focusing On 'Stronghold' Markets As A Foundation For Its Turnaround Plan [View article]
    Another country that should be watched is Singapore. BlackBerry has gone from last place there to giving Apple a run for second place. All in less than six months.

  • Apple Watch Is Out... Investors Should Watch Out [View article]
    @lamb Maybe you should look in the mirror when talking about toxic writing. If you were following the news when the 5c5s were released, it only took about 1 hour for someone to hack the fingerprint scanner. There are devices that can scan NFC cards in your wallet/purse. That is why it is recommended to keep them in a metal case. In countries were NFC cards are commonly uses, metal cases are also commonly available. I guess that means the next I accessory will be a metal case to put around your new watch. One more thing. Did the medical experts at Apple look into what the results of the NFC and other signals comming out of the watch right up against the same part of your arm for xx number of hours a day be? My suggestion is if you want to retire early, buy an Apple watch and wear it 24/7. Should you develop cancer, you can sue Apple for millions (there loaded and will pay to avoid the bad press).
