    It's a shame those employees won't be executives; now that would have boosted profits!

    What about the interest rates? You don't imagine they'll be raised this year, do you?

    Well, I'm still using yahoo, J. Free services and ads I've never even looked at, works for me!

    They are mostly chinese, SF, and they'll be taking away a lot of Apple's share, too!

    Not for someone with my eyesight, D! A Z10 or equivalent would be of no use to me.

  • Bank Of America: There Is Still Time To Ride This Bank Way Up [View article]
    I'd say so, hp, as goodwill means different things to different people, and works better in some fields than others. I really can't imagine it being associated with BAC in any meaningful way, other than as an accounting sleight of hand.

  • Facebook/Oculus partners with Microsoft; Xbox One games coming to Rift [View news story]
    MD, I was responding to Jack Rice; I see little point in having someone wearing a Rift at a football game, but a 3D Google-like camera, in place of a TV camera, might have possibilities (though why any viewer would want to look anywhere other than at what the TV camera is filming, is beyond my comprehension...).

    "I think Chen just included the Internet of things in his speech only to entice you to invest." No, he wouldn't do that, would he?

    A very fair summation!

    Sorry if I'm being dense, RK, but: "I think it's safe to say with the just launched Passport that Chen was feeling pretty good about BB on the hardware side."? Does this mean anything, other than "...Chen was feeling pretty good..."? What do you mean by "...just launched..."? The Passport has been available for an age, and, as usual, they are being cagey about the numbers sold, which in the past has always meant the product had flopped!

    It's a shame if it's true, and I personally think the Passport a very fine phone (at least with rounded corners; the sharp cornered version first offered, and still the only option available for most markets, was a definite mistake!) but unfortunately, I (and most people like me, it seems) am not in the market for any phone at the moment, and there's nothing BBRY can do about that...

  • RBC: Facebook's video ad opportunity on par with mobile [View news story]
    I suspect that most of those poorest children get their clothes from charities, else, wouldn't they be more likely to wear homespun, rather than Adidas?

    Not quite, JR; 3D cameras can provide that VR, but only from wherever the camera is positioned. I suppose it may be possible for the viewer to move the camera, by remote controlling the boom, but how would that be any better than current 3D games?

    Are you sure about this, RJ? The version I heard was that BBRY were going to send recipes (with video ads; it's a surefire winner!) so as to cut out all those trucks and fumes. First, though, they need to overcome resistance to home cooking (remember that?)...
