  • Qatari fund reportedly buys BlackBerry debt; Sculley was ready to bid [View news story]
    First, they need to tell the public they exist, and have new (well, newish) products for them, and why they'll want to buy them. Until then, the public at large don't give a rat's about the apparent imminent demise of a company they kinda sorta thought had gone to the wall many years ago.

    It's "advice", and I advise you to get Word 2003 or later if you can, as it has all those features, and uses different coloured squiggles to underline areas of concern. It's by no means infallible, but generally works well. Now, what about this "dushbaggery", then?

    I'd hoped to take comfort from your wise observation, Bu, but then realised I'm unemployed and broke, so I guess it's alright when so many refer to me as (and I quote) "a idiot"?

    There'd have to be a system of interrogating each product, which might not be possible in a chinese factory, but should be at point of import, which would defeat the object of tampering, unless thy just want to spy on their own? Not easy, but worth thinking about...

    LOL andy, I completely misinterpreted your PM! It's my turn to ask what "dushbaggery" means. Here's a tip; write your comments firstly in MS Word (the most recent copy you have) as it will at least highlight those "oh so simple" errors, which are often the hardest to comprehend. That way, you at least know something is wrong, and work at fixing it, and then just copy and paste. It would, for instant, have pointed out he "write/right" dichotomy, but as for "yuo", this site also has a spellchecker, so why not use it? That, too will help you to spot other mistakes (and we all make them, from time to time; I misspelt dichotomy!).

    Unfortunately, the goose to which you refer has the habit of eating its own eggs, so maybe this is the government inadvertently doing what it should be? I.e., protecting the interests of the electorate?

    If that' how it'll turn out, cho, why did they incentivise TH to scupper the company so that it could be sold? There's something going on here that they are not telling us about!

    If only they'd done that from the beginning, IG, and scaled down accordingly! Sending products to the shops with no supporting publicity, in a field as competitive as this, was a complete waste of inventory, effort and money.

    Marcap, however long you keep putting the cart before the horse, before a person will desire a product, they must first be aware that it is available, and know what it is, and what it does. around here, at least, none of those I've asked have heard of QNX or BB10, and those few phones that have turned up, did so unannounced and unheralded. No surprise then that the sole Z10 that appeared at a local superstore, among a plethora of Galaxy phablets and colourful Nokias, has gone unnoticed. If this has generally been the case, then your repeated claim that they are "products that no one wants", implying that there is a fault with the products, is pure sophistry! Please desist; it fools no one.

    Will Chen grasp the not so fine point that products only sell when effectively advertised? If not, it is destined for oblivion.

    A lot of pundits are echoing your take, RL, and I'm not knocking it, but I do think 8$ is a bit optimistic. I'm more inclined to expect resistance at just under 10$, if only because of psychological reasons, regardless of how well the bank is really doing, because the public are no longer panicking over the prospect of a financial meltdown (not that we are really any safer than we were five years ago; it's the perception that counts). TBTFs have a different set of rules, don't they?

    Why even consider buying back cheaper,TQR? That you've lost money on a particular stock is no reason whatsoever to try and recover it on the same stock, so look for something safer to spend your money on. As for holding, that's entirely down to whether you think it'll climb back or not, and I can't help you with that one, but as it's BBRY, I'd deep six it anyway, as there are too many shady deals going on, and this is not going to be at all predictable, anytime soon!

    There's an interesting article in this weeks Time (european version) about the deep net, and TOR multilayered encryption, which doesn't so much encrypt the message, but rather make it impossible to determine the address of the sender (which amounts to pretty much the same thing). I don't see why the same technique can't be applied to phone calls (OK, it does require a lot of dedicated severs, which in turn may slow calls down)? I had no idea about the existence of this "other" internet", so I found it quite fascinating!

    That's an interesting idea, jo, but would it be workable? It might start like that, and maybe even be well intended at the offset, but personnel change, so how long would it be before a new chinese big boss starts leaning on whoever is in charge of security, who may not, in any case, be committed to the original intent?

    Why? Because a smack in the kisser might offend? I don't think it really matters, if he's going to make a real effort to sort this pup out, especially the atrocious marketing, as he'll be on airline jets most of the time
