  • BlackBerry thinking of shutting down Swedish design ops [View news story]
    bwsf,

    The rumour mill has it that Apple is working two ways to rectify the flimsiness of their devices.

    1. They have just applied for patents covering flexible screens
    2. They are developing new alloys that will not bend.

    Whatever happens to the next generation of iDevices it won't be another iBendy problem creating headlines.

    KIA,

    "I think ol' Ben Drummett over at the WSJ is overstating things a bit."

    My estimation is BlackBerry needed a design company that was going to concentrate on what they needed to the exclusion of everything else so they bought this one. The need is over and the top people in the company have already left to form a new company so it would seem wasteful to keep the original company open unless BlackBerry intends to design another system. Nice thing is that BBRY didn't (apparently) restrict the original staff from creating another company when they left as so many other companies do.

  • BlackBerry Is Worth $16 To $20: Analysts Have It Wrong [View article]
    bwsf,

    Do you really expect the revenue to show individually for either Samsung or Google since they both started within a very short time span? I'm not even sure they were available in the last quarter to be reported.

    You could of course provide proof of Blackberry phones being hacked by lesser mortals than the CIA.

    Randal,

    That is correct on non smart phones but we're not all using phones that are not capable of text messaging or emailing. These scams can be delivered in many ways. As you say nothing protects from stupidity.

    Would Merkel's phone include the software that protects it?

    toneguru,

    I didn't say you were a short.

    The majority of my family use BlackBerry phones and none of us show them while we are out. We all use Bluetooth headsets to take and make calls, dictate emails and texts using the BlackBerry Assistant and listen to music. The only time you will see them in our hands is when we need to see the screen.

    toneguru,

    Seems to me that if you are a BBRY short it helps to hope that the longs are delusional.

    In the meantime http://bit.ly/V7oLZy seems to have broken.

  • BlackBerry's Health Initiatives Might Have Hit A Wall [View article]
    xoleo,

    I think we are both on the same track here.

    Point is that it may look like an iPad and it may have an Apple logo on it but it may not behave like an iPad.

    biobat,

    The ads are actually Channels very much like Google pages. I still haven't seen an ad while using it.

    bwsf and shubarua,

    Hospitals may use iPads or other devices but (as far as I know) they are limited to use within the hospital zones. Very little is allowed to be stored on the devices and. It really isn't a matter of what operating system and I'm betting their are security limitations placed on them that will not allow them to access more than the person signed in is allowed to access. Should they go outside the reach of the hospital system then there should be nothing stored on them.

    BlackBerry (through BlackBerry Link) should be able to work outside the hospital zones with complete safety as it does no need to refer to cloud services but can be linked directly to the specific folders needed.
