    markpriest,

    You are behaving in a troll like manner. Leave one and ask for the others to be deleted or I will flag them which could possibly get you banned.

    KIA,

    Christmas is a time for pantomimes and comedy but that is just too farcical to be funny.

    KIA,

    A little more research would have found that the hack was never demonstrated and, as far as I know, would have only affected text (SMS) messages which were never part of a protected system. The reason it did not affect all iPhones texts because of something you have mentioned before. Apple diverted texts over their own messaging system if the receiving phone was also an iPhone.

    Azazello,

    They believed the encryption was done using the phone's EMEI number but Blackberry actually use the pin. They openly admit the devices were never hacked and then point out two as the most exploited which doesn't make sense if none were hacked.

    The only thing I can guess at was SMS messages could have been but BBM messages would not have been.

    cereal,

    You also failed to follow through. It was a backdoor added by Sprint that supposedly caused the Blackberry problem and it also affected other Sprint supplied devices. There was no demonstration of the actual hack working that I ever saw.

    Who would possibly buy this? Future fathers, grandfathers and great grandfathers.

    cereal,

    Do you mean "There is no such thing as a purely business device"?

    Some things are better than others at what they do well. I've seen carpenters playing table tennis using hammers as bats but they don't do it as well as a table tennis bat but table tennis bats are pretty hopeless for hammering in nails.

  • BlackBerry +2.5% on pre-earnings upgrade [View news story]
    Mike,

    I only came into SA because I didn't want to see Blackberry go out of business and I could not stand the slurs that were being thrown at it. My family and I are Blackberry mobile users and our investment goes as far as owning the phones. I have no idea of the stock market beyond reading "Gladiator at Law" so I have no idea what that refers to but the price is back at $10.00 so it was wasted money evidently.

    I may retire from commenting soon as Blackberry no longer seems to need my help but it's so much fun when self professed Research(ers) show their lack of Research and being able to prove them wrong.

    Mike,

    I have a feeling a lot of short money will be needed after Friday because nobody is buying at the new high who doesn't expect it to go higher still.

    Seven minutes to go but I expect to see a lot of after hours trading.

    Mike,

    Looks like the longs have decided to do battle. Bottomed at $9.84 at 14:50 and at and now $10.00 40 minutes later. http://bit.ly/1zuf635

    Unique and innovative in the way they do them. Rubber tyres existed before John Boyd Dunlop inflated them.

    Simonas,

    It got to $10 before somebody, who seems prepared to throw a lot of money away, started selling big time. Almost as though trying to force the price down.

    CAB,

    Did you mean "You forgot to mention, 'if you like big touch screens, watching movies, playing games, using ton of apps for the sake of it' go get a Z30 and still be productive"!

    JMajoris,

    Please finish Kevin's statement. I think it was along the line of the 6 being good for gaming with.
