  • Photo render of BlackBerry Android phone with slide-out keyboard leaks [View news story]
    I would suggest avoiding any Android Blackberry. History has shown Blackberrys have charging issues that don't get resolved for 2+ yrs.

    There's also a potential class action lawsuit against Blackberry for not providing reliable and servicable updates for a product still in contractual service.

    We all know how well the Fire phone did. But I would rather buy a Fire phone.

    BBM has gone to hell recently. Users have abandoned it.

    L-A-T, I gave you a +1 for that. You spoke the truth and I agree with everything you said, so don't beat yourself up.

    Mechanical components fail quickly and Blackberry phones aren't known for their build quality.

    Blackberry security isn't unparalleled. Even Samsung has displaced Blackberry in the defense industry.

  • Sprint's Claure to T-Mobile's Legere: Tired of 'Uncarrier bullshit' [View news story]
    Claure should aggressively target Verizon. Poaching customers from Verizon mean the customer can bring their phone with them (compatible CDMA radio tech, whereas T-Mobile and AT&T use GSM).

    And also offer the cheap Windows Phones ($50) or Androids off contract.

  • Amazon Prime Now Reveals Company's Strategy And Future Promise [View article]
    Oh you're right G, I stand corrected. Actually it probably is prison according to the link:

    Amazon was a purely political environment where, if you weren't watching your back you'd get stabbed and become a rung in someone else's ladder. In our group, the MANAGER had zero engineering experience (literally had gone to college to be a PRISON GUARD, somehow ended up "managing" programmers, though barely computer literate.)

    The real news is Win 10.

    And frankly, the quality of Bing search results is now better than Google.

    Patr, I believe Google did well in spite of your being there. Twitcher isn't going to add significant revenue.

    What does Sierra's aircard have to do with IoT?

    It's just a freaking aircard, get over it.

    But yeah I hope they buy them, take down another Canadian business when they go down. More market for the American competition.

    "Chen chose to neither disclose the client (confidentiality) nor the adds this past quarter. Even just 100 adds per customer = ~250,000 license adds."

    100 lic. per customer is too high.

    Even so, at $72 per license that's only 18 million in revenue. But don't forget how many are free trial licenses and how many are only the cheap silver licenses.

    This isn't a viable business. You're finito Blackberry, good riddance.

    Blackberry is no longer synonymous with security as their competitors have caught up.

    And their competitors innovated in cloud and ecosystems which Blackberry doesn't have the capital to pull off.
