    Against that seemingly sensible argument is the need to avoid encouraging spurious claims by opportunists. I don't understand a legal system where you can win a case and still be obliged to pay your own costs.

    How much extra would the legal fees be?

    What, you mean it changes? Hey, that would be innovative enough even for Davnumbers!

    Neither is my passport (but maybe the screen qualifies?).

    Isn't it just; it's just gone to the top of my list, well, as long as they do an AZERTY version (and it comes to France) as that is easily the most practical keyboard I've ever seen on a phone! A pity they had to spout nonsense about SS being stronger than aluminium...

  • BlackBerry Is Literally Trading Bonds, Not Selling Phones [View article]
    Interesting, but this wheeling and dealing still looks pretty grim!

  • BlackBerry Passport: Microsoft Surface Part Deux [View article]
    We live in a world that frequently makes little sense, and it may well turn out that health care will be ruled by objects one must hold in a hand. It is hardly optimal, but then momentum counts, and many will not even take into account the inconvenience of using iPads. If the Passport sells enough to show people how much more practical it is, that momentum effect could run out; as ever, it will probably be determined by how well BBRY advertise, which hasn't been their strong suit, so far!

    One good bet would be on anyone who brings out a strap bag/frame that lets iPads be hung around the neck, and used one handed...

  • EU regulators set Oct. 3 deadline to decide on Facebook, WhatsApp deal [View news story]
    Yes, but: "provided WhatsApp sticks to its current privacy practices after the merger, including not to use users' personal data for targeted ads"! Doesn't that pretty much kill the golden goose?

  • BlackBerry Passport: Microsoft Surface Part Deux [View article]
    Yes, they do tend to need both hands from time to time, and finding space around a hospital bed where you can put down a tablet, is rarely going to be easy. Same goes in the comparison between the Passport and MS's Surface; only one can be conveniently dropped into a lab coat pocket...

  • How Secure Is BB10 And Does It Matter? [View article]
    True, but may not be relevant; security as an afterthought, is less than ideal, so I expect that in the real world, BBRY's inherent security will prove the most reliable, and should have the lightest foot print, too, as slap on patches tend to be greedy, and the more effective they are, the greedier!

    Then BBRY need to put more effort into marketing (again)!

  • BlackBerry emerges victorious against Typo Products [View news story]
    I agree, but as for different form factors, wouldn't that be better covered by copyright? After all, changing the shape of something doesn't much alter the way it works, so isn't really an invention, to my way of thinking.

  • BlackBerry emerges victorious against Typo Products [View news story]
    Interesting, Mr. K, but why is a keyboard attached to a phone patentable? I'd have thought it one of those outcomes that would be fairly considered as "obvious", and thus disqualified (at least by most European patent offices; I don't know if it's a consideration in the US). Now, if there was a technical difficulty to be overcome (unlikely) and they'd patented a means of achieving that, then I'd understand, but all this, "roundness of corners on a square" (or the slope of the keys...) stuff seems bonkers to me, and just an income generator for the legal professions, which was by no means the original intent of Letters Patent!
