  • AT&T and Best Buy have slashed the BlackBerry Z10's (BBRY -1.1%) subsidized price to $49 amidst weak U.S. sales, and Verizon has cut its price to $99. News of the price cuts comes shortly after the WSJ reported BlackBerry recently fired its U.S. sales chief, and Thorsten Heins put the blame for the Z10's soft U.S. launch on poor sales/marketing efforts and training.  [View news story]
    I havn't read other comments, sure lot will not read mine. BB10 is not simple, the HUB on the left is garbage that shall me taken out ASAP. Make it more like a short cut menu, sell the phone free with 2 year contract or probably offer $50 cash back. Yes the Phone is different the employees of BB have tried there best but the user experience is worstest at best compared to other OS even windows Mobile. I hope one of the management guys at BB reads this, if they want to increase sales in America.

  • BlackBerry Short Sellers, I Salute You  [View article]
    This was a big surprise, I was bullish on Blackberry. I wanted to buy the stock before the earnings report but thankfully didn't. I live in US and I never saw anyone checking out the Z10 at att store or any other mobile store. I always thought the international sales in Europe, Africa and Asia would do the magic, but that didn't happen as well. I guess no one is looking at the Z10's there as well. Yes, the Stock is greatly undervalued at the moment.

  • Proof That Google Glass Uses A Himax LCOS Microdisplay  [View article]
    doesn't support it, Himax revenue increases by $100 million if 1st year Google Glass sales are 10 million. Maximum Price per share I'm getting on my forecast is $7-$8 dollars. Keep in mind Google is going to get the majority of the profit per Glass sold, HIMAX is only going to get it's $8 or $10 dollars per display. I looked at the Himax presentation and Business Insider projections about Glass Glass. There can be other manufacturers of wearable tech that may be using Himax display but I have not factored into my estimated price per share. Let me know what your estimates are regarding this matter.

  • Proof That Google Glass Uses A Himax LCOS Microdisplay  [View article]
    Can anyone tell me the justification for the $5+ per above stock price, the company already has about annual revenue of above 600 million dollars. If HIMX is the main supplier for the display used in Google Glasses that would increase revenue by 100 million in first year (assuming 10 million Google glasses sold in 1st year, $8-$10 to be paid to HIMX per display). The most upside I see is up to $9 dollars a share, buying this at $5.50 seems very risky. I just want to hear from others how much this stock can be worth under best case scenario, I believe companies revenue per year can max out at about $200 million dollars from displays it will sell to Google if it's main supplier for the displays.

    How much energy is lost when hydrogen is converted to electricity? Also just to confirm about 1% of energy is lost when converting from hydrogen to natural gas as stated in this article? What would be the possible cost of kwh to the end user if hydrogen energy is converted into electricity? Current cost passed on to end user is .147 cents for KWH by PG&E. Would producing electricity through hydrogen be more cost effective?

  • If BlackBerry 10 Fails, Can The Company Survive On Services And Software?  [View article]
    I read most of the comments before writing this comment, most of the users living in Canada are very positive about the platform. I live by HQ of Apple, Yahoo, Google, Facebook and most of the major tech companies. There is no excitement here in California about the Z10. I personally went and tested the phone twice this weekend. The phone itself is very easy to use; the OS has some great features in it. I believe this is how the IPhone 5 should have looked like without the home button. I like how you close the applications on the Blackberry 10, lot cooler than how it’s done on the Apple Iphone. The SAD part about Z10 is that the Demo versions being displayed in stores are very anti-user friendly. It took me 5 minutes to get the phone out of DEMO mode to see how they phone actually worked! The Blackberry 10 OS is great, the phone does have solid feel it from the sides and the front. But the cheap plastic cover on the back is just not going to cut it compared to the solid metallic finish on the iPhone 5 and the glossy finish of the S4. I personally don’t think the Blackberry 10 OS would save Blackberry without the success of Blackberry hardware devices. It may be the tiny flaws like bad demo phones, cheap plastic battery covers and not enough excitement over the platform that may kill Blackberry altogether. Blackberry must change the back cover of the phone immediately; the phone has the worst battery cover I have seen in months. Everything has to be perfect when a company is trying to sell a phone that is competing with the Apple Iphone and the galaxy S4. Also the Sales personal have to show more excitement about the platform and sell it to the customers and tell the customers how easier it is to use Blackerry 10 compared to the Apple Iphone 5. Additionally the camera should have been 14 megapixels at least. As far as investing in Blackberry is considered the stock is currently undervalued compared to the amount of revenue company is currently generating but future of the stock is very uncertain. If I was Blackberry fan I wouldn’t being doing wishful thinking right now and think that the phone would be or is already a big success in emerging markets such as China, India or South America. Blackberry 10 is mixed release when the whole world expected Blackberry to be perfect this time around. WebOS had good feels to it but at the end OS without the sales just ended up being a big flop.

  • HP Could Double... Again  [View article]
    It's a great start when you copy a major competitor, just look at the recent success Samsung has found by copying Apple's IPhone with it's galaxy line of devices. HP is doing the same with it's HP Envy Laptops, but it's little different from what Apple has since they are touch screen.

  • HP Could Double... Again  [View article]
    Moonshot has to be big hit for HP to hit $30 dollars in the next 3 month. High end HP laptop/tablets are very competitive against products being released by Apple. HP Envy x2 is great one of those products recently released by HP, high resolution laptop has to be must as well, $169 android tablet with beats audio has to be great earnings booster. Moonshot servers should help HP increase it's long term margins.

    Her purse is going to get empty soon, she is behaving like a rich housewife. These tech valuations are BIG a guess, even Myspace was valued above $4 billion at one point. Yahoo could really go in either direction at this point.

  • ARM Holdings: The Real Reason That It Ends Badly  [View article]
    Ashraf, I agree with you on ARMH, the problem that you must understand is that neither Apple or Samsung wants to buy the processors from Intel in the long run. If theey do it's going to ruin the ARMH business model of licensing chips to multiple venders at low price. If you were Apple or Samsung you would want to put ARMH chips in your phones even when the Intel ones are better. For long run ARMH is better for cellphone/smartphone vendors then Intel. They don't know when Intel may end up changing there prices. Stock itself may be over valued if there is no growth in cellphone/tablet industry. I leave that to you to decide.
