  • Is LinkedIn Run Solely For Its Employees' Benefit?  [View article]
    Philosophically speaking I'd like to reward engineers and scientists. I feel a great gratitude for even such basic things as clean water, toilets, phones, etc. and the general state of things today.

    Engineers and scientists, have your stock based compensation, you deserve it. WIN.

  • Alphabet/Google: How Is YouTube Red Doing?  [View article]
    There's another reason to get Red. To stop the ads.

    Every video these days starts with an ad. If you run adblockplus then youtube will sometimes not play the video.

    So the only way to have a Facebook like experience on Youtube is to pay.

    But he's not the only one, a few executives have been making huge money while they layoff the engineers.

    Even Canada has stopped caring about Blackberry, I didn't meet anyone carrying one while I was there this winter.

    John Chan knows it's a lost cause, hence the layoffs.

  • BlackBerry carries out fresh layoffs in Ontario and Florida (updated)  [View news story]
    QNX did ruin Blackberry.

    It wasn't compatible with existing BES. It required a new BES to be developed, yet the new BES wasn't backward compatible with older devices.

    Developing the new OS and the new BES required 5 yrs. In that time MobileIron and Airwatch established their dominance in the EMM space.

    But Blackberry's decline is inevitable, EMM solutions are becoming a value-add service from one-shop IT providers like Microsoft.

    A lot of the pumpers were laid off in previous rounds - or their internships ended (BBRY is located on the university campus).

    Looks like BBM died today. They laid off the chief architect.

    Congratulations and good luck former employees. You worked for a loser, it'll likely only get better from here on out.

    There were rumors of dual boot Windows + Android phones but it never made it to market.

    I don't think Google would certify a dual boot device and the device would lose access to Google's services. This would defeat the purpose of using Android and wouldn't provide a better experience than BB10 already provides.

    Blackberry has billions in debt, and their revenues continue to shrink.

    They no longer have the cash to achieve the escape velocity needed to escape their death spiral. Just look at their cautious approach to marketing.

    Not according to MobileIron's last earnings report, looks like they're the ones doing the driving and Blackberry was roadkill.

  • How Google Stole The Show From Apple  [View article]
    Most engineers graduating from universities here are Indian and Asian. A lot of second generation kids from these families go into engineering.

    I think these minorities are still under represented in tech.

    But Apple should pay a fair salary regardless.

    Seems like Blackberry / Good lost a lot of contracts after the merger.

    Mobile Iron's recent surge in business must've come at their expense.

    Fact of the matter is, Blackberry is an unreliable provider with bad customer support reviews.
