    Probably not. These were purchased when patents were worth more and are on the books as assets based on purchase price minus depreciation. They are being sold because they aren't generating as much licensing revenue as expected. After they are sold they could result in a write down.
    You still get cash out of a sale...

    Ex-BlackBerry CEO Mike L Wanes $BBRY Shares for $26 Million |

    Mike L. Made 26 million after selling his shares... about 10%...What do you guys think? For his quantum computing project or no?
    Mike bought slightly more than 3 million shares at an average of $16.50 in February 2012 for a purchase price of about $53 million. Tax loss selling ended Tuesday in Canada. This was a good move to take advantage of his loss of about $24 million.

    He has to wait 30 days to repurchase, if he chooses to do so.

    Not that I'm paying attention but....Twitter is approaching a $40 billion valuation. Go BBM!
    I want to short twitter. But the premiums to short are pretty crazy. Who can look at the options chart and give some input.

    I`d want to go out 6 or even 9 months (after the insiders are allowed to sell in April or May). $55 strike looks pretty good.

    Twitter is the definition of irrational exuberance. Complete insanity.

    I wonder if there is a connection here. Just glad that we have Apple on our side during this lawsuit (hopefully).

    Should we have done the same!? I would like to hear what/if Morgan did the same to reposition for a new entry.
    Hmm, would that really make sense, since a loss is a loss??? Perhaps Mike made considerable capital gains elsewhere, and he is looking to balance his sheet out a bit(?).
    Also, didn't that article also say that Mike is still flying just below the 'disclosure radar' with still holding a certain number of shares.

    Interesting.

    Your nuts is what? LOL

    Happy holidays guys.

    I'm on vacation without my computer, but my Z10 kept me working.
    Yesterday I got an email with a time sensitive MTA that needed my signature. Opened it, signed, and sent back with only a few taps on the Z10.

    Since I'm fully mobile, my phone has to be able to perform the same functions a laptop would for normal usage. I've been totally mobile for a long time, now.

    This is my first time leaving home without a computer. One time I even brought a laptop to the beach in Aruba. Didn't get much work done, too many things to do and see , and afterwards had to spend hours vacuuming the sand under the keyboard.

    OT warning:

    By the way, I got a Bose Soundtouch 20 WIFI speaker for Christmas. I downloaded the app from 1mobile; however, it wants to update right away from Google play store which I don't have access to. Anyone care to provide that APK file?
    (I have tried the applicable forums with no luck yet. )

    Download snap in the forums at CB. It works like a charm for Google play store on 10.2.1.
    Keep in mind that you may have password error. When try to log in. In that you need to create app specific password in Google account for once.
    I been using this app and it is wonderful. Only thing is that you can't install purchased app.
    For that you need blue stack on your desktop.
    Good luck

    By the way, how is the sound quality? Cause I am looking for one too.

    Posted using Z30. Best phone in the world.
