    Random commentary (*this is US centric post before I get attacked.*)

    I have both Bloomberg TV and CNBC on the squawk all day long and all I constantly hear about Twitter, FB (Instagram) and LinkedIn for social media.

    I know BBM Channels is supposed to rival the established names in the business but outside of the BBRY community, what kind of buzz is being generated; if companies are using it, they arent advertising it, yet. I hear more about Flipboard or Pinterest than Channels. When do we see some adoption to help drive the excitement?

    My fear about cross platform BBM is similar as well. BBM is strong in the BBRY community but outside, whats being done. I know Samsung is pushing it with some advertising but when it comes to messaging services, conceding the point that BBM is the best communication app, how do we get widespread adoption. I think about all the options available to me:

    *IMessage (which is my primary go to, since most of my contacts have iOS devices &/or dont have sms plans);

    *Google hangouts (for my Android friends & those on their desktop computers who cant for whatever reason spend all day on their phones (@ the office for example or a group chat including mobile and desktop);

    *Whatsapp (for intl friends who jumped from sms to whatsapp and never used anything in between);

    *SMS.

    I use the above in descending order and have considered ditching whatsapp but have settled for throwing into a folder where apps go to die.

    Now I get the virtues of BBM (esp when no alternative exits), but I have 4 easy ways to communicate outside of phone/email. Whats the value of adding yet another messaging platform? I care about security to a point, but in my life; conviennce is probably a bigger factor. Im happy with my solutions, why change?

    Im in a grove with services that give me what I need & a good backup. I cant generalize for iPhone & Android users but the onese I correspond w/ are plenty happy w/ what they have because someone else made it easy to get comfortable. Whatever is best on platform X eventually gets incorporated into the leading systems... BBM rocks but I know that if the cross platform features are the new cats meow, Apple or Google or Whatsapp will eventually offer so I can sit on my arse with my good enough features.

    How does BBRY mgmt/marketing overcome that?

    That inertia to a certain extent is what BBRY has been banking on within the corporate sector right. Were already inhouse, you already use or devices... why not just upgrade naturally to our new Z10/Q10 models. Be lazy, go with what you know.
    That's a good question.
    Among my friends, the message that worked was "BBM does everything that your current Apps do, but better, easier, and more secure. "

    You are being disingenuous if you tell that to friends that are using Hangouts or Facebook Messenger. BBM is supposed to launch without voice or video calling on Android and IOS and there is no desktop client either. I haven't used BBM in a few years and I have no doubt it's a great messenger. I just don't see how it is going to offer much to your average Android or IOS user when they are already using apps that have more features, they are comfortable with and their contacts already use

    I don't agree that I was being disingenuous. We will have to wait to see what features XBBM will bring, no one knows yet.
    But when I talked to my friends about BBM, I told them what I had on my phone and not what they will have on another platform. Actually I wasn't trying to convince to them use XBBM, I was trying to convince them to buy a better phone.

    Problem with bbm channel

    People say follow me on twitter or FB at .... Or Facebook slash.....

    How will someone say that with bbm channel. The name bbm channel is already too long ,
    And there is no easy way to access it. Bb wants people to scan or use the pin. Won't work. Bbm channel will be dead on arrival

    "Tune into my channel"

    You can search for channels. Just like you do on twitter for users. They have bar code scanning which is easy and probably add nfc too. Or then can create a simple link system.

    Now stop sensationalizing with this DOA junk.

    OK, I think this is a good segue in to the subject of viagra from couple days ago. Since there are a few “older” guys here, a cartoonish explanation of how viagra might work could be entertaining and informative, so here goes.

    Viagra at work

    Man looks at boobs.
    Electromagnetic waves emanate from boobs in reciprocal space, what is big looks small, what is small looks big.
    Waves enter man’s eyes and get converted into real space but up side down.
    Photoreceptors see upside-down boobs, got excited, BBM the images to image processing neurons.
    Neurons look at the images, scratch their heads in confusion. Turn the images right side up, recognized them as boobs, got excited and post on BBM channels.
    Other neurons receive the images instantly, got excited and release hormones.
    All the activity lead to increase in nitric oxide (NO).
    NO stimulated production of cyclic guanine monophosphate nucleotide (cGMP).
    cGMP relaxes blood vessels and allows more blood flow (everywhere including the pen1s).
    cGMP then gets destroyed by phosphodiesterases (PDEs) and allows vessels to return to normal (or deflated). In the pen1s, the PDE is variant PDE5.
    Man takes a viagra pill, which specifically inhibits PDE5 (also inhibits others less strongly including PDE6 in the eye).
    With PDE5 inhibited, cGMP continue to work at keeping blood vessels open and maintaining ereection.

    This knowledge was brought to you by research done at government funded academic research labs (work mostly done before the ’70).

    Note: this is just from top of my head based on what I learned in undergraduate which is many years ago. Expect gaps and errors.
