    Not a good guy. He lied about his bid. He could have financed and chose not to. End of story. End of reputation of 27 years in the business and never walking away from a deal.

    Couldn't agree more. "We just don't do that", yea ....

    From the recent GlobeandMail article:
    Never asked former CEO Heins to leave BlackBerry, Watsa says - The Globe and Mail

    Mikes a good friend, Mr. Watsa said. Mike wanted to go at this on his own. Wed have been happy to work with Mike, but he wanted to do this on his own.
    Anyone else find these words interesting? I really do not like the fact that Watsa is the chairman of the board. Want him gone for the same reasons Morgan does. In best practice, this is NOT how a company should be run. Keep Chen, get Watsa off the board!

    Mike L, you listening!?

    That should be easy enough to do.
    Get enough like minded shareholders involved and start a proxy fight.

    How quickly the tide has turned.

    OT - $Halo

    Halozyme price target raised to $17 from $13 at BMO Capital
    BMO Capital increased its price target on Halozyme (HALO) as the firm thinks the company has a number of upcoming positive catalysts including better-than-strong launch of HERCEPTIN SC and progress with the Pfizer (PFE)-partnered PCSK9 mAb. BMO Capital keeps an Outperform rating on Halozyme.

    I still do. Started buying last year at $6.50. Now own double that amount and came full circle at $6.50 again...LOL

    OT, just found out that the Z10 with OS 10.2.1 works even with my driving gloves on. Small deal, but big deal for me now that I don't to rush pulling my gloves off when the phone rings.

    Strange, I've had problems with my Z10 and cold weather.... I found I needed to warm my fingers up to get my Z10 to register swipes.

    wow this is a difficult choice. If the rumor is actually true about Google Play then BB will definitely jump. So the board decided not to sell. Watsa put more money back in. Why in their right mind would they make these choices unless they had something really good up their sleeve. I feel like they were gathering intelligence - find out just how much interest there was from competitors.

    Well gang I just could not resist. I have backed up the truck and bought back in. I didn't quite go all in but I went in with a sizeable position.

    My thoughts - BB made a deal with Google. Google went along so that BB was not bought out by Apple or Microsoft. A win win for Google and I think and hope a win for Blackberry. I'm willing to bet the rumor is true and honestly can't see what other magical solution they have up their sleeve. The biggest thing missing from BB are the apps. This is what they need and Blackberry World is not going to cut it.

    I suspect this rumor will also be confirmed soon because the clock is ticking with Christmas right around the corner.

    Hey Fedakd,

    I find the whole dynamic extremely interesting, beginning with the dual ceo structure to the stock backdating to the withdrawal of Jim B and Mike L to the falling out with Jim B, TH (the new old guy) and now the PW/Mike relationship. I do hope one day we read first-person account from the players...

    Having said all that, why do you think Mike L could or would do a better job than PW and especially Chen. From my point of view, Mike L is largely responsible for the place BBRY is right now. I doubt he has the credibility/energy to pull a turnaround.

    don't know much, but before offering to eat your hat and toe read this.
    Open Handset Alliance Definition from PC Magazine Encyclopedia

    I think the process could be more involved than a simple sideload. Play Store depends on other proprietary libraries like Google Service Framework that BlackBerry can't distribute. But, taking the Kindle Fire as example, It's not a process that could stop someone who really wants to do it.

    If BlackBerry and Google have a deal, I'll eat my hat and a shoe.
