  • Netflix: Major Red Flags To Consider Before Buying [View article]
    Those websites have been around since way before Netflix was around. Same with torrent sites. They are all illegal and do not represent a valid argument in my opinion. This is why they have to have multiple links to the same show as they get taken down. The quality is nowhere near what Netflix offers nor do you get the headache of closing popup after popup.

    Netflix currently holds the market and compeitition as you stated above (Hulu, Amazon etc) but you cannot put pirated video sharing in the category. It's been around far longer than Netflix and the general public does not have knowledge or the care to look for websites to stream when the ease/quality of using Netflix is unmatched.

    I do agree Netflix is over-priced though and will take a tumble soon...

  • BlackBerry: Buy, Sell Or Hold? [View article]
    How many of these smart phone manufacturer's have gone under exactly? Palm Pre and....?

    I fail to see a long list to use such a drastic conclusion that "The fact of the matter is that this is a brutal industry and no one has ever succeeded in turning around a failing smartphone manufacturer."

    RIM has a uphill battle and lost quite a few contracts, but the new Blackberry is definitely a contender with lots of time to regain market share.

  • Analysis: Does BlackBerry Have A Chance To Come Back? [View article]
    This comment is full of personal opinion with no factual information.

    The analysts are seeing the big picture and I believe many of you are not.

    Don't get me wrong, I am in full support of Blackberry and all the best on them. But they fell behind the 8-ball because they were too macho and felt that they didn't have to keep up with the times - that they ran the show. The technology sector is a very fast paced environment and RIM failed to react. They have shown many examples of this.

    Another example is the playbook. The comment below me explains it clearly "The playbook is awesome - NOW" I have one of these as well - but why release something sub-par without the bells and whistles? Who wants a computer with no software? They are finally coming up and going to upgrade. What about the people that bought the cr*p back when it came out and have now been waiting years to get the new 'software' when these should have been built in before launch.

    From a customer standpoint, why stand behind a company who does not listen?
