  • BlackBerry: I'm A Buyer On Monday - Yes, Again [View article]
    Focus groups? Really? Go ask Apple about focus groups, you'll be laughed out of 1 Infinite Loop. Perhaps focus groups are the reason Samsung's revenues are declining. Here's Samsung's focus group: "What's Apple doing? Ok, then we'll just copy that."

  • Mark Zuckerberg, The Warren Buffett Of Technology? [View article]
    Instead of building flotillas, MZ should be building moats. Now that would truly be the Buffett way.

  • dELiA*s Is Poised To Triple [View article]
    Is it me or does it seem like most of the negative comments about the company and Mark's article come from SA members with less than 10 comments to their credit? It appears to me we have a chorus of one nattering naboob of negativity. This person is clearly familiar with the company's past performance. He just spreads out the company's poor financial numbers over a host of SA member names to make it seem like there's a swell of negativity against the company. Save the posting under multiple names for the YooHoo boards.

  • Is Apple Using BlackBerry's QNX? Yes [View article]
    @tech01x

    "If QNX was all that great and competitive, the why did no one buy it for more than $200 million in 2010?"

    QNX was sold for $200 million for the same reason that Bill Gates was able to purchase QDOS for $50,0000 (MSFT market cap as of 3/9/14 is 314.60B); for the same reason that no one bought out Apple when the stock was in the teens.

    @Sense TheWorld

    So how long will Whatsapp rule the IM universe? 100 years? 200 years? 500 years?

  • Arena's Belviq Sales Continue Up As Others Decline [View article]
    @healthythoughts

    All investors are susceptible to the unknown. A Ford investor has to worry about a car recall; a Johnson & Johnson investor has to worry about a product recall; investors in all types of companies have to worry about the impact of lawsuits on their stock. I don't understand your premise. All stocks carry varying degrees of risk. Is Vivus any less risky than ARNA? You have not proved your point.

    You're a long way from the Yahoo message boards. Before you consider embarrassing yourself further, you might want to read up on the re-adjudication that was done in 2011.

    @srikondoji

    BBM on BB7, BB10, iOS, Android, and soon on Windows (ETA summer 2014)...what other significant "platforms" are they missing?

    Google will turn into today"s Yahoo in 5 years? You understand nothing about how Google makes money.

    Let us know what car you do buy. It most likely will have QNX in it.

  • Bloomberg: BlackBerry to get major boost from Ford [View news story]
    @Mr Knowitall

    Thanks for the follow-up and clarification. According to this statement, the operative word is "models." We have to ask which Ford models are covered under the license, if any at this point. Hard to imagine Ford would pay for a QNX license while also paying Microsoft for its Sync license. We would need to know more about the nature of the agreement between QNX and Ford before we jump to conclusions.

    @Mr. Knowitall

    Help me out. I read your link and I'm having trouble understanding from this QNX presentation why you would suggest that Ford already had some pre-established relationship with QNX. My understanding from your link was that this presentation from QNX illustrated the disadvantages to having Sync (from Microsoft) installed in a Ford car. Any insight you can give is appreciated.

    This is why Apple products are only allowed to be used for "non-secure" purposes in US govt agencies:

    Ironic how a Canadian company's technology could be the best weapon the U.S. has to safeguard its most sensitive assets.
