    seekingthetrooth,

    As an ex professional photographer i know how valuable royalties can be compared to selling anything completely. I'll go with royalties any time. I was still earning well ten years after retiring.

    gwynfryn,

    How many writing pads, note pads are used horizontally? The lines are horizontal while in portrait. Scrolls were held horizontally but the pages were portrait shaped. Nothing to do with the spine or the ease of holding it. Just a natural thing people do. Got a wide screen monitor? Ever thought it was the wrong way for reading messages? Take a look at the text column here but you are probably reading it on a monitor in landscape mode.

    Bradmeister,

    If all analysts accepted the same rules there would be no divergence in what they advise but there are wide differences between them. True analysis will only lead in one direction.

    I wonder if the author would have the same simplistic trust in analysts 11 years on.

    dolco,

    As I have said before try turning your data connection off and see if the phone still works as a phone. I am beginning to wonder if you actually have a mobile phone.

    dolco,

    Your lack of perspicacity is exceeded only by your exceeding good looks

    Take the Smarts out of a smart phone and you still have a mobile phone. It's why I can still move a SIM into my old RAZR V8 and still make phone calls.

    Bradmeister,

    Perhaps you should take your own advice and look it up. http://bit.ly/1f161IT
    I know it is not the way you meant it but "easily achieved" is acceptable.

    Bradmeister,

    If it was facile to even think it then it must have not been possible. If it is possible then it is no longer facile.

    Doubtful does not equate to facile.

    dolco,

    Your phone calls have nothing to do with your operating system. That is through the most basic of phone systems. Your phone number/SIM is serviced by your telephone provider. The rest of it is provided by the Internet Service Supplier who is normally your phone service supplier. The most difficult thing is explaining this simply but if you have a smart phone try turning off the data service. You'll still get and be able to make phone calls and use the text service.

    gwynfryn,

    And that is why picture books are sometimes printed in landscape but normal books with lots of words are in portrait.

    Did I get that wrong?

    clf99,

    "They sell software for the shrinking population who own their devices. Sales overall are still moving downward." That doesn't make sense. Four American institutions have grabbed back the devices they supplied to their staff and told them to use their own. It cannot be a shrinking population.

    dolco,

    Please explain in technical terms why it's nonsense. Android and iPhones both do this when on BES12. They don't move the devices completely over to using BB10. BIS was used to keep BlackBerry devices safe before BB10 and for some of us still is. What's the difference that makes it impossible?

    SAM,

    Thanks for the explanation. So Cisco buys the license and then pays a royalty fee for every use of it. That could be a lot more valuable than paying an annual licensing fee. Works for J.K.Rowling.

    Bob,

    For somebody to sell there needs to be a buyer. Those shares do not just disappear into limbo.

    i.e. the buyers of those shares want in.

    Bradmeister,

    Your inability to see any other possibility does not make the other possibilities impossible.
