  • BlackBerry Can't Divest Of Its Devices Unit Even If It Wanted To [View article]
    In the last month I had 2 former colleagues in BlackBerry's device certification group contacting me via linked in. And now Chen saying BlackBerry will be pulling out of the handset market altogether. Coincidence? I think NOT.

  • Microsoft: Set To Make A U-Turn [View article]
    Microsoft has been successful as the "me too" in the past with its PC business. However this time around Google has filled that spot in Mobile.

    Microsoft's phone and windows software is pretty innovative from a design standpoint. Its style was copied in iOS 7.

  • A Microsoft Hater Does A Full 180 [View article]
    Jobs was a dictator. He decided not to give you a usb port and microsd slot so you would have to store your data in iCloud, where it could be analyzed and sold.

    You could always open an outlook.com email. No one other than you reads your email or will sell it to advertisers or use your email in ads (unlike Google products). In fact, it's probably better to setup forwarding rules from gmail to outlook.

    The integration with Facebook contacts is handy, the OneDrive cloud storage is 7GB for free, the integration with Office is seamless, and the free Word, Powerpoint, Excel, and OneNote web apps are just what people need to be productive right in their web browser.

    I don't know how Microsoft plans on making any money since they're giving everything away for free.

  • Tizen OS Could Be A Disaster For Samsung [View article]
    Why wouldn't they be able to run Android apps on Tizen? Amazon does it on their forked version and rumor has it BlackBerry has recently enabled native Android apps on their OS. Seems like it's technically feasible, so you just never know, Tizen may be wow.

  • Google's Next Android(s) [View article]
    Do you even know why MS is "evil"? :rolls eyes:

    The original Netscape vs IE issue. MS wasn't allowed to bundle IE with the OS. Today Apple and Google are bundling everything but the kitchen sink. Public opinion is fickle.

  • BBM For Android And iOS: Not A Big Deal [View article]
    Frank, the few sites that even bothered gave BBM a 5/10.

    BlackBerry built an app for people stuck in the year 2008, and those people will love it. For everybody else, welcome to 2013.

    How would you describe BBM?

    Ugly design
    Few features
    Not truly multi-platform
    Outdated friending system

    Answer is all of the above.

    Actually the real story is 10 million downloads is my fault. I wrote an app that downloads BBM and moves it to the trash bin right away. It was very entertaining so I've been running it in a loop 10 million times and counting.

    BB devices aren't secure. They run Carrier IQ, spyware which tracks all key strokes.

    The link shows multiple different accounts by people who don't speak English but were instructed to use the word "smooth" by Alicia Keys (BB PR director and resident girl on fire) posting the exact same review:

    "Thanks blackberry Thank you so much blackberry team. I was waiting this app. Its really great user friendly and smooth."

    Good grief.
