    I completely agree with you. Although I have loaded a few leaks, there's more in my life than just the next BlackBerry software.

    People like the OP should just find something worthwhile in their lives or just another addiction to hold them over in-between BB10 leaks and get off Chen's nuts.

    It just take one bad leak, and some tech news company to test it, and then you will understand why blackberry want to stop leak. It's not suppose to go to public because it's not fully tested, could cost a lots for blackberry if let's say one leak leak your email info through twitter because some bug in the api (I know this make no sense as a developer but I need an easy explanation for the other people)

    Loading leaked OS is fun. You get to try a new OS with, most of the time, new features, bug fixes, etc. more earlier than those who do not load leaks. You become an unofficial beta tester. It was also a way to learn more about the OS. Leaks are fun, but in my opinion, their absence shouldn't hinder you for loving or using your BlackBerry. What really matters is your communication with your friends and family, security, and productivity that BlackBerry provides. And there are more to life than waiting for a leaked OS. Go out and watch a movie, drink with friends, listen to music, learn a sport, build a computer, travel, and many more. Live your life, and your BlackBerry 10 device will accompany you

    Why we want more after first booze?

    We all have 24 Hrs in a day, no one gets more its all about priority.

    A scientist spends hrs, moth or years in lab.
    Some people spend hrs on golf course.
    Some spends hrs watching porn.
    List goes on and on, we all have different priority and reason to excite.

    I like my BB and want to improve every week or month not like isheep (isleep) get excite every year with little and go back to barn.

    There are a lot of us that love leaks. Complaining about a lack of them though, is terribly counter productive. Not only will it not inspire BlackBerry to allow it, the leakers are for the most part uber sensitive, and one complaint or untoward word will cause them to shut their generosity faucet off. Shower them with praise, adoration and gifts, or do nothing at all.

    To the member who thinks BlackBerry has not beta OS program. NDA and carrier testers have access. I'd like to see the Beta Zone open up testing, for select members, understanding that a large swath have enough difficulty testing basic beta apps.

    Finally, let's keep insulting terms like iSheep off the forum. If you can't respect others choices in a smartphone, don't expect anyone to respect yours.

    I am pretty much a leak addict, going back to legacy BBOS days. I recognize, however, that the most of what comes through is pretty much invisible to the end user. Actual new features are rare. Sometimes we see a new wording in a menu, or some other visible tweak, at which point we get all excited. Usually, however, there is no visible difference, and we talk about whether performance or battery life are enhanced, or degraded.

    So why bother with leaks at all? Yes, it's a way for sick fanatics like ourselves to stay interested. Personally, I would justify it by the supposition that all the invisible changes are making the OS more stable and efficient. But that's mostly a fantasy to make the time spent installing and restoring seem worth it.

    Oddly, while I was using the Samsung Galaxy S4, rooted, I quickly got tired of trying out custom ROMS. I found that whatever the supposed advantages of one, there was always something else that wasn't quite right.

    Make no mistake, when the next leak for my Q10 comes along, I'll be on it. But you know, it's hard to spend all that time dicking around with leaks and then, in the next breath, crow about productivity. When I think about the hours I've spent on BB leaks....

    Leaks are kinda addicting but as long as the carrier does updates fast like ROGERS has been doing then I'm fine without it. I think I kicked the habit. If only BB would allow just Crackberry users leaks. In a secret way.

    For me... For me, in the beginning being able to download a "leak" from either another carrier or a true leaked OS, was essential. Would not have stayed with the BB10 platform if I had not gotten a fix for the rebooting issue before my 30Days were up. At the time we taught it was software, but both Verizon and BlackBerry tec support were unable to guarantee it.

    Also know that there are many here that have enjoyed the whole leak experience of getting something new every few weeks. Or trying to figure out how to Sideload, then how to install a developer token, then how to convert your own APK using that token, now installing APK directly, figuring out how to get some apps to work by manually moving databases... it's been an experience, that has "challenged" some and made the platform interesting. You take away what did make the platform interesting for some, they other shortcomings start to stand out a little more.

    AS for those that talk about leak like they were buggy and unstable..... most of the time they turned into an official OS on some carrier a few week later.

    Setting up the priority hub to your level of notification, maximizing battery life by tweaking the setting including utilizing the dark themes, load a few android apps on the device and use them maybe possibly show them off to friends!

    People like you don't like change same like iphone users
    Apple releases updates four or five times a year per iOS version. These are mostly to fix bugs but some added functionality or new features occasionally pop up. Then, Apple saves the big updates for the next version of iOS.

    BlackBerry leaks are much the same with the only exception being the "big" leaks for BB10 within the last year. Considering that BB10 was half-baked at release it makes sense that the most of the leaks and the few official OS releases have seen major updates to functionality and features. After the official release of 10.3/10.3.1 we should see things drop off in terms of new features/functionality until we near the official release of 10.4.

    The thing with leaks are that only a very small percentage of total BlackBerry users know they exists, and an even smaller number of those who do know of them that actually install them. My guess, and it is only a guess, is that less than 1% of total BlackBerry users actually bother with the leaks.

    In my opinion BlackBerry should follow Apple's model and just release the working portions of what we know as leaks as OTA updates.

    I like my BB and want to improve every week or month not like isheep (isleep) get excite every year with little and go back to barn.
    Every week? BlackBerry would have to hire 10K more coders for that to even be possible. Besides, after a year they would have burned through all of their feasible ideas and would end up sitting around waiting for the hardware technology to catchup. Not to mention that if the OS changed on a weekly basis, let alone monthly, it would totally confuse the heck out of consumers. "BlackBerry 10. Get it today because you don't know what it will be tomorrow (literally)". Yeah, that's going to sell a lot of phones.

    You want more leaks because it pleases you. It's that simple. If the leaks are what keeps you with BlackBerry then I think that perhaps you ultimately do not like the platform. And what is an improvement? I personally think the camera is great. I mean it is, like all smartphone cameras, nothing more than a mirrorless point-and-shoot. For what it is it is effin' awesome. Why consumers expect their cell phones to rival a DSLR is a bit ridiculous. What does it matter when many just run their pics through some lame "retro" or "artistic" Instagram filterer anyways. People are lazy and too demanding. For less than five minutes you can produce better pictures with GIMP than any filter on Instagram will give you.

    And don't get me started with the Android runtime or Google Play/Services. For me neither are improvements as there is only ONE Android app that I "must have" and I have that app on my iPad (and GFs iPhone) anyways (Navy Federal Credit Union).

    Now you're comparing booze to a BB10 leak? Do you realize that the only similarity they have is the addiction aspect, right? They have absolutely nothing else in common. And guess what you should do if you're addicted to booze/are and alcoholic? You go to Alcoholics Anonymous and get help.

    Do us all a favor, stop posting and trying to prove anything, as if you're right; because you're dead wrong and are only making yourself look more and more like a fool with every single post.
