    I'm pretty sure that it is the carriers that push out the updates in Canada as well.

    Because they lock out features like BBM voice and BBM video unless you pay extra fees. In Canada everything is included in your plan no extra $ for these things.

    Of course everybody understand this is humour. Yet, I personally won't write that. In fact, I must say I feel very uncomfortable with that cork soaker expression. It's antiquated and offensive : Let's keep it clean my friends. Posted via CB10
    It's complimentary. I heard that he soaked more cork than most to get ahead. He's actually a captain cork soaker. Lol

    If everyone continues to underestimate bbry ... the eventual squeeze will be epic. In all honesty, we don't even know Thor's full plan. He could have some really awesome aces up those sleeves of his. I mean yes the Z10 and Q10 are great but just what if the best is yet to come?!?! What if Thor has his own $100 party plans or maybe $200 party! My manager is starting to love her Z10 and the support teams were just approved Z10's to help maintain our systems. That will be another 15 in the near future. I'm so excited for the new devices to!

    I don't post much but I have been lurking this thread for a long time. It's the first thing I do when I wake up in the morning. Thanks to all the contributors in this thread!

    Anyway, It's quite nice to see more and more BB10 devices are in the wild now.

    For one, my company is an early adopter of BB10 devices. The company I work for has thousands of employees. Although not everyone will be handed a BB10 device, all the supervisors, some departments, managers and executives are provided one.

    The good news is they have not finished upgrading the BB7 devices to BB10 yet. The even better news is the company is growing really fast and they are beginning to acquire companies overseas. Perhaps those subsidiaries will begin using BB10 devices as well (if they haven't already).

    What's even more interesting is that we can see something similar that seems to be happening in the UK right now, notice also the diving charts of iOs and Android

    It's I easy to do, I tried.
    Every time I bottle my wine I would sterilize the corks by soaking them in sulphate solution. They always float up out of the solution and refuse to get soaked. Lol

    I was excited about this but it appears to be old news as it was discussed on the qnxauto blog in january QNX Auto Blog: Two QNX customers, Chevrolet and Garmin, shortlisted for 2013 Best of CES awards

    Garmin Official: NHTSA Guidelines Could Create Worse Behavior | Politics content from WardsAuto

    LAKE ORION, MI Voluntary guidelines proposed in April by the U.S. National Highway Traffic Safety Admin. call for more stringent controls on potentially distracting features of in-vehicle infotainment systems.

    But an official with one telematics firm thinks those rules, and some already on the books, may have the effect of creating more dangerous behavior behind the wheel.

    Im not going to say distracted-driver guidelines are a bad idea, says Kip Dondlinger, product manager for Garmin Automotive. (But the) answer is not to just take this stuff away from the dashboard, because people are just going to keepusing their smartphone. And you're never going to stop that.

    Dondlinger is referring to NHTSAs request that auto makers voluntarily block certain information from being viewable not only while a car is in motion, but also while at rest.

    One of the areas I disagree with NHTSA is that they want (certain features) locked out unless you are stopped and have the transmission in park, he tells reporters at a recent Garmin technology showcase here.

    I think there should be some in-between point where some of this stuff is accessible to you, (such as) while you're stopped at a stoplight with just your foot on the brake.

    Dondlinger notes one feature of Garmins K2 concept telematics system, album artwork displayed on the gauge cluster while a song from the album is playing, would be discouraged under the new NHTSA rules.

    This album art? That's only allowed when you're giving people a list, he says. You can use album art to help them select from a list, but then it has to go away, adding NHTSA deems artwork on constant display too distracting.

    Dondlinger says with its telematics systems Garmin is striving to achieve enough functionality, a middle ground between giving drivers too much and too little.

    With K2, which the Kansas-based company is pitching to OEMs for a 15 or 16 introduction, some information still is provided while the car is in drive, he notes.

    For instance, drivers still can see the weather forecast, just not the entire weather map. This conciliatory mode was devised partially by following NHTSA guidelines but also by using Garmins in-house distracted-driving research.

    To combat driver distraction, Garmin recently introduced a more natural way of giving directions on its higher-end portable GPS units, and expects the feature to filter down in a model year or two to its OEM-embedded products, such as Chryslers UConnect system.

    Called Real Directions, the feature gives landmark-based guidance when possible.

    Instead of saying, Turn right onto Main Street, it will say Turn right at the traffic light, or Turn right after Starbucks, Garmin Automotive spokesman Johan-Till Broer says.

    Its the way I would give directions to you, adds Dodlinger. You don't have to know what 800 feet (244 m) is.

    With Real Directions, some footwork is required on Garmins part, as well as by data supplier Navteq, to make sure a sign for a business is easily viewable, and that the business hasnt closed.

    Broer says if a sign isnt visible at a particular intersection, route guidance reverts back to traditional distance-based directions.

    Another feature introduced on Garmins newest portable devices and bound for in-car use is the predictive myTrends, which learns a drivers route.

    Matt Munn, managing director-Garmin Automotive, says by predicting a drivers behavior myTrends reduces the amount of time he must interact with the car, thereby lessening opportunities for distraction.

    While it still has more market share on the portable-navigation side, Garmin is working to expand its presence in embedded products.

    Besides its relationship with Chrysler, Garmin also is the telematics supplier to Suzuki and it recently inked a pact with Mercedes-Benz. Its products in models from those OEMs are available globally; India and Russia are two markets where Suzuki sells its SX4 model with Garmins embedded telematics system.

    Roughly half of Garmins revenue comes from its automotive business, including embedded and portable devices. Garmin also supplies infotainment and navigation systems to the aviation, marine and motorcycle sectors, counting Bombardier, BMW, Harley-Davidson and Honda Gold Wing as customers.

    Munn believes the future of in-car embedded telematics is the sharing of information between the center stack and gauge cluster, which is a feature of the K2 concept.

    Our vision in the OEM space is to really look at the driving experience with a more holistic approach, he says.

    This is a good way to combat driver distraction, adds Clint Steiner, director-sales and marketing, for Garmins automotive-OEM group. You put the most meaningful things (on the gauge cluster) phone call, next song, driving destination.

    Steiner says K2 marks the first time Garmin is using an operating system other than its own. He says the switch to an operating system by software firm QNX was necessary for the telematics company to become a lot more scalable.

    Dondlinger says production versions of K2 will use Texas Instruments OMAP 5 processors rather than the more common OMAP 4, to handle the sophisticated graphics of the system.

    Dondlinger demonstrates features of the latest K2 concept, installed in a Dodge Durango and first shown by invitation-only at Januarys Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas.

    In the Durango, K2 uses a 10.4-in. (26-cm) center-stack capacitive touchscreen and a 12-in. (30-cm) gauge-cluster screen.

    For some functions, such as local search, K2 requires a smartphone running the Garmin app be tethered to the car via Bluetooth, but navigation and GPS functionality is embedded.

    K2 uses Nokias new city-model data that provides 3-dimensional views of cities, in some instances showing highly detailed buildings.

    Other features include integration of all audio sources: CD, DVD, radio or off-board sources such as Pandora or Spotify; the ability to see contact information and photos from a users smartphone; and the integration of text messaging and email. For text messages, a K2 user receives a visual prompt of the message while tethered, and the contents of the message can be read to them.

    More natural language for voice-recognition systems also is a K2 feature, as is the ability to configure K2s in-car message center remotely.

    K2s center-stack screen has columns that represent a different tool.

    You can set it up to have whatever information is relevant to you, whether its calendar information that's coming off of your smartphone (or) email that's coming off of the smartphone, Dondlinger says.

    It's all a matter of the quality of both the soaking and the cork. If it's just a cheap piece of cork or, on the other hand, if it's a quick, cheap soaking then it loses all its class.

    If however, the soaking is being done by an experienced soaker steeped in the ancient art of cork soaking, then it can be a truly beautiful thing.

    So I think I'm going to double down on Monday. Well not literally but I think I'm going in again for about another 35%. It gets me to a nice round number on shares and i d like to have a bigger position going into the earnings release. Not that I'm expecting anything drastic. But I think this might be the last chance to buy in the low teens. I think Android sales are vastly overestimated by the market and the value of a qwerty keyboard underestimated. (And I say this as I struggle with my nexus 7, argh).

    Now the question is do I set the trade over the weekend so it executes in the morning. Or do I log in and do it manually. Since my work day starts at 9, it means I might be busy at the opening bell and so not buy exactly at opening.
