    It's just another healthy work force reduction meant to rejuvenate the work force. They probably laid off the undesirables who are unable to put in 100 hrs a week because they either have cancer, are pregnant, or are women:

    I think they were employees. I mean who else could like Blackberry?

    They stopped defending the company after getting downsized.

    Fewer evangelists - that's another nail in the coffin.

    It is more expensive when data usage exceeds 1 GB. And that's very easy to do.

    And reviews have shown that it has serious problems with its network connection and switching that can result in device corruption

    "That's a nice tinfoil hat you have there. Oh, a Daily Mail reader. Figures!"

    Unexplained behavior can happen in software (faulty Google algorithms that don't show results for "Romney"). Who knows, but I'm open to all possibilities - where there is smoke there usually is a fire.

    "Many believe the Obama administration has it out for Google because of this fighting."

    Untrue. In fact, Obama and Google share a special relationship.

    - Special Google search algorithms were created to help Obama win elections
    - FTC dropped their investigation only 2 months after re-election
    - CTO and senior positions in the white house held by ex-Google VPs
    - Hillary Clinton's administration is staffed by ex-Google employees
    - Google representatives meet weekly with senior white house officials
    - 4X lobbying by Google as compared to Apple
    - etc.

    "Honestly curious if you are being serious?"

    Yes. It's Google's business model to collect data on your usage. They make billions and billions every year doing just that. Not acknowledging this would be dishonest.

    Chrome is OK for checking email, but for anything else, you would need to run Windows or Mac. It also ceases to be useful if you're offline (let's say traveling). There is also the security and privacy concerns with Google software, they change terms of services fairly often.

    But the biggest problem with Chrome is that the majority of apps only run on Windows and Mac.

    Now that Windows 10 is released and the majority of reviews have been positive, I expect there will be a shift back to Windows.

    But BB10 isn't an OS when you consider the missing ecosystem that something like Windows provides.

    A Blackberry Android phone can't be secure or private. The Android platform was built with the intention to collect info about the user.

    It won't matter if you run

    I run it with Firefox and youtube now shows 0 ads. A lot of the annoying and CPU sucking flash and video ads on all sites are gone.

    Windows 10 is a great ecosystem that ties all platforms together and runs Windows and Android apps.

    Google Fi is more expensive than other non-contract carriers like T-Mobile, MetroPCS, Virgin etc.
