  • BlackBerry: Will This Be The Quarter Of Hardware Rebirth? [View article]
    Until Revenue recovers, which should be any quarter now...if not this one,; the naysayers will just keep bashing BlackBerry.

    If you are are LOOONG, don't listen to the Bashers...they live to push people's "sell" buttons. Don't listen to the noise....listen to the guy with the information about your investment...that would be CEO...Mr. John Chen.

    A bit ridiculous, if you ask me, when you have a wristband (FITBIT) IPO for $20 & go to $30, but what can you expect when all the same "Players" MS, DB etc....back the IPO, the same ones as MOBL. They all playing games and keeping the pressure on.

    FIT better heed some advise from the likes of Twitter on how fast the market can love you and then how fast they can step on your head when you in the water.

    Of course...all JMHO

  • BlackBerry Set To Plummet [View article]
    Fingerprint technology is not's been around a very long time. Regardless if anyone stores the prints or not, it is the perception that they are being stored and passed to Government agencies in the US that people are hearing...truth or not. JMHO

  • The Party Is Over For Chen, BlackBerry [View article]
    Like others have stated, another re-hashing of BlackBerry's past. There is absolutely nothing new, nothing earth-shattering most people don't already know about.

    The question is...What does the author thinks he will accomplish with this one-sided, opinionated, article?

    Speaking of the military, did you know that QNX runs the autonomous vehicles in the US military?

    Everyone is entitled to an opinion, but it's really not a "puff" piece as you put it. TA is stating FACTS, something the Bears tend to try to ignore for the most part.

    For true, BlackBerry will never be the same Company it was when it started out, and maybe that is a good thing. Sometimes it takes a failure or for something to hit rock bottom, before it can re-invent itself and evolve to a new realm.

    BlackBerry is a Software company now, it does not just sell handsets.
    Just remember .....Never say never!

  • Making Sense Of The BlackBerry Takeover Talk [View article]
    Thanks George, another good article.

    There are many good fits for BlackBerry, but I hope they are only selling off the HW and any Subsiduary that does not contribute to the I.T. Services or BBM.

  • Google Will Dominate Cars The Same Way It Dominates Phones [View article]
    It's not good for one Company to dominate anything. Its not good for economy, not good for retailers, not good for consumers. Remember.....TOO BIG TO thing you know it...US Gov't bailing out Google. Not a good scene for anyone...JMHO.

    Diversity & competition is what the world wants and needs.

  • BlackBerry: The Hits Just Keep Coming [View article]
    It's guidance....expect a loss while they get their house in order. They are not giving Wall Street what they want to hoo!

    I don't think there is another Mobile Computing company out there that has there house as clean as BlackBerry right now. Media scrutinization and investors have made sure of that fact.

    I also believe that they will be the Microsoft of M2M, as Microsoft is now playing catch up (doubt it can catch up no matter how many phone company's the buy).

    BlackBerry is far from dying....Apple has ifatigue and people are looking at alternatives to Android.....all JMHO

  • BlackBerry: The Hits Just Keep Coming [View article]
    BlackBerry did give guidance on their last earnings call:


    The smartphone market remains highly competitive, making it difficult to estimate units, revenue and levels of profitability. Throughout the remainder of fiscal 2014, the Company will invest in BlackBerry 10 smartphone launches, and the roll out of BlackBerry Enterprise Service 10, to continue to establish the new BlackBerry 10 platform in the marketplace. The Company will also invest resources to evolve BlackBerry Messenger into a leading cross platform mobile social messaging application, and launch other revenue initiatives associated with new services and emerging mobile computing opportunities. Based on the competitive market dynamics and these investments, the company anticipates it will generate an operating loss in the second quarter. The company will also continue to implement the cost savings and process-improving initiatives it started last year, in order to drive greater efficiency throughout the company, and redirect capital from these savings to areas of investment that will drive future revenue growth

    Really...look at Canaccord's past history...hideous! That goes with a few of the others who shorted at $8.00. Come's a game and their game is trying to recover their short money...I trust no anlalyst that has skin in the game...they are not objective. JMHO
