  • Apple Scores Security Win Over BlackBerry [View article]
    Just ask yourself a question, before analyzing red and green spots infographics with parameters most won't even understand.

    Q :"Who, in a corporate environment EVER broke a Blackberry encrypted device + BES ?"
    R: nobody.

    Thank you.

  • BlackBerry To Lenovo: Make Me An Offer That I Can't Refuse [View article]
    Correct me if I'm wrong but I believe Lenovo Cash reserve is +/- USD 3,5 Billions and revenues around USD 39 Millions / year.
    Can Lenovo really handle a $5-10 billion bid ?
    Flush their cash 100%+ ? In current state of economy and general growth projections ?

    Did I miss something ?

    re "While acquiring both the hardware and the software units could lead to severe regulatory headwinds, acquiring just the hardware aspect may be achievable in that there is unlikely any sensitive assets tied to BBRY's hardware division"

    I'm puzzled. You cannot disassemble BlackBerry "security" it is a "floor to ceiling" model, from the device to the back-end. There's as much "security" in the device than other parts. This is the strength of this security model, with no "weak" portion.

  • Is China's Lenovo Group Making A Bid For BlackBerry? [View article]
    (Sorry to repeat)
    but - again - 3 hours later we can find the exact opposite (while much shorter lol) from a Benziga Staff Writer :

    "Hearing 'Reliable Sources Inside Lenovo' Have Said Reports of Move for BlackBerry 'Not True' - TechWeb"

  • BlackBerry: Don't Let The Smoke And Mirrors Fool You [View article]
    No more than 3 hours later, Bezinga silently killed the rumor, without editing their *breaking/exclusive* original article. Only few of those who know about BlackBerry, its shareholders, the CAN regulations and - above all - the current path to recovery laughed when the news pop.
    Pump and dump ...
    But you know what ? Finally we had a pump and ... stand.
    +/- 10% on Nasdaq yesterday.
    Seems some news buyers had a closer look of the situation.

    The Bezinga retractaction :

  • The Biggest 3 Technology Flops Of 2014 [View article]
    "The Passport has emerged as BlackBerry's latest attempt to capture mobile market share through the launch of a phablet", have you ?
    Passport is a niche device (Professional users / "Prosumers") and current sales exceed initial expectations, as it appears to attract other categories of users.

    New acronym on the webz: "YAUKA" (yet another unuseful kofi article)

  • BlackBerry launches Passport; reviewers criticize design [View news story]
    why the hell is there an "S" to reviewer in your title ?
    BTW: The guy and theVerge are well know for their "nothing BlackBerry" mantra and a 6.2 score under his keyboard is an exploit !

  • BlackBerry Passport Beating iPhone 6 In A Recent Poll [View article]
    There's indeed something in this poll :

    1/ If the words "social" and "community" have a meaning, this should be taken as a demonstration of strength. Please remind the weights of each brand users and extrapolate the proportion of BlackBerry fans *allegedly* flooding the poll to get a very interesting metric about who is really "connected".

    2/ I do believe a lot of readers (BlackBerry users or not) did vote for the passport, even if they do not plan to buy it as their next device. Because - as the author fairly noted in the Passport illustration - Passport is understood as truly innovative with exciting features and they'll be interested to see it IRL.

    Let's take that free advertising and eyes catching media space.
    That alone is enough to make me smile [jk], furthermore if we have our usual ranters annoyed for the same price ;) [/jk].

    As often in marketing, the relevant information you get is not always the question that sits on the top of the page. "Prosumers", yes we are.

    P.S: and, "merci, Frank."
