  • Facebook: Opportunities And Challenges In E-Money Space [View article]
    Right, cho; a concept like bitcoin makes regular money seem stable! I dearly would like a means of converting currency without having to pay a fee, though...

    15, I believe I gave part of the reason? Growth tends to come in spurts, so I'm actually surprised it is growing at all; FB has no product, as such, and depends on shareholder confidence of what will happen in the future, which can be a fickle thing. It all depends on whether you actually like the FB experience or not, and I am by no means the only one who doesn't, so there is a limit on growth that is well below "all the World's population", but FB enthusiasts don't seem to have got this yet, but it can only be a matter of time. What will happen when it stops growing, and the longs realise they've overpaid? If they've any sense, they'll unload, but only the quick will get their money back...

  • BlackBerry Is Fermenting [View article]
    If they are moved to form any opinion at all; there's nothing around here to do that! The one Z10 that stood forlorn in a local supermarket has gone, and not been replaced...

    George, I agree with you about the potential of the Nanthealth hook up, though it’s not clear what exactly the relationship will be. That said, though people are dying and getting ill in fewer numbers in the First World, the cost of doing so continues to soar, so “blue” (first para, second line) berry might do better to specialize here, and perhaps work up to a dedicated super tablet for health professionals, to outdo the iPad, which is reportedly the most popular mobile device in hospitals at present? Sure, start off with such a phone as is reportedly due soon, but a lot of doctors don’t have such good eyesight, and when examining scans, it’s usually useful to have several windows open!

    It'll do more than decimate (= reduce by one tenth) it, and growth of 35% or more is not usually sustainable. The danger is that, if it falters, the current confidence levels will evaporate, and if it does, this stock will likely go through the floor! It may not happen soon, but if I was holding, I'd be very ready to get rid at the first sign...

    Aren't people supposed to learn from their mistakes. If so, BBRYs tablet designers should be poised to succeed. I'd like to know what Nanthealth can bring to the table, though I'm not a fan of joint development, based on personal experience.

  • BlackBerry invests in healthcare software firm, will jointly develop phone [View news story]
    Sure, Mr. K, there'll be a phone, but serious professionals in other fields that need dedicated software in mobile form, from what I've seen, prefer super tablets, and are willing to pay thousands (which is swiftly regained in improved productivity) for them, so why not for the medical professions? If BBRY do this and get it right, it'll make those still using iPads seem frivolous, and appearance matters!

    Well, I'm all for easier exchange of currencies; I've been looking at some multi currency accounts with regular banks, and they all seem to have ridiculous restrictions, like annual incomes in excess of £50 k, in one case, or insisting you must visit their country to provide proof of identity, if you don't want to pay rather large opening fees (doesn't that sound like a scam?). OK, I know international law is part of it, but I never expected my quest to exchange some money, to be as frustrating as it has proved!

    Hang on, didn't one of the facility providers shut down, and a few billion bit coins go missing, recently? Then there's the report that one of the players nearly snagged enough of the market to take complete control of it? That, to me, sounds like an institution that's about to implode!

    So I'm not the only guy left using 98 SE (plus Partition Magic)? Hey, it does everything I want it to!

    Well, a super tablet, like those used by surveyors and other mobile workers, specialised for medical practitioners, would fit the bill? If the venture with Nanthealth pans out, it'll be a huge market, so it'd be rather daft for BBRY to provide the communication service, but let someone else profit from the device sales!

    Did this article mention the Nanthealth venture? I missed that.
