    • Excursion: I dont buy this for a second. Cites an unnamed source. Somebody out there is scared and pumping bad information.

    • hahaha48: why would dod buy ipod? If that is true I do not want to pay any more tax

    • Excursion: Yeah, that is why it seems like complete garbage. Ipods, iPad mini's? Sounds bogus.

    • oneinfiniteloop: oh pcmag - another garbage - if DoD had something to say they will put the news out themselves. News will be out post sequester - ya right.

    • Gene Chan, CFA: The sequester is a bunch of long term budget cuts so it's not going to "conclude" for another decade or so.

    • Gene Chan, CFA: Which means there is a high likelihood that this story (and the one before it) was planted and completely fictional.

    • oneinfiniteloop: Gene, this is what lends me to believe that some influential hedge funds/folks have taken a short position on $BBRY and are now desperate.

    • Excursion: I have to agree with oneinfiniteloop and Gene. Anything to drive the stock price down so these damn shorts can cover. More time to buy.

    • ImadAlazani: too dumb to be true. the next DoD move would be to play Angry Birds as a battle stimulation game?

    • rephinbar: Here is classic proof this is manipulation: the article first came out on March 5th! why is it being pumped again today after the upgrade?
