    Lol the music playing after disconnecting from bluetooth have caused many embarrassing situations for me.
    LoL, I know. I started using music player Neutron. little buggy but have settings which can delay screen lock if being charged and have a hand wave settings through the motion sensor for Play-Pause-forward-rewind. wave hand to pause before turn off the car. the problem is that this player have too many bells and whistles that it is learning curve to learn.
    Iphone had the same issue not to long ago but they tweaked it. if blackberry want to be successful in the consumer arena they have to bake these kind features in the os for the mass consumers.throw in few cheap but presentable models out there along with some high ends latest show off kind of model.
    the only way I am upgrading from this z30 if blackberry comes with a keyboard Model with bigger and better screen, perhaps with trackpad. because with trackpad, I dont have to move my thumb for reaching large screen, it can stay on the Button. LoL.

    Nice and I have great laughter.

    I copied-pasted some funny lines just to entertain:

    Blackberry support PROMISED me there would be no more freezing. But, I look outside this morning - there's still snow!!!! Thoroughly disappointed!!
    Mine still won't make coffee for me. I thought this update would change that. Sigh.
    Yeah it hasn't fixed my broken heart either.
    No coffee, no espresso, no martini. Unbelievable - they call this a smartphone?
    Why can't I get scrambled eggs with 10.2.1? BlackBerry can't ever become #1 again if it only makes sunny side up eggs, and I still don't agree with their decision to put the carriers in charge of toast instead of doing it themselves.
    If the marriage slows down and becomes unresponsive, do a security wipe and reload and it will be fast again. It will eventually settle down and over time you will have to repeat the process.
    Damn - it won't feed all the hungry children like the iPhone does either

    Hi Komoto:

    I went from 9900 to Z30 smoothly. I am pretty sure Z10 to Z30 wouldn't be a problem. Just use the device switch function in Blackberry Link.

    Google sold the set top box unit from Motorola to Arris for $2.4 billion and keeps the 17,000+ patents.

    HA!! Asshats - this Proves the expensive purchase of Motorola Mobility was simply NOT worth the expense to benefit ratio to Google.

    Google is selling its Motorola Mobility division to Lenovo for $2.91 billion, according to a report from China Daily. Google acquired the company and its then 17,000-strong patent portfolio, along with 7,500 filed patents, in August of 2011 for roughly $12.5 billion.

    At the time, Google said Motorola was a "natural fit" for the two companies and that it would "supercharge the entire Android ecosystem". The deal is said to include 10,000 of Motorola Mobility's patents, although it is likely that Google will retain licenses for those patents.
    Looking like all other mobile device manufacturers should have better pricing of stocks along with better patent court wars in favor of the Apple, BlackBerry consortium.

    ^ Google keeps the 17,000+ patents BTW.

    Did Motorola Mobility Only Cost Google $1.5 Billion?

    We know what the headline number that Google paid for Motorola Mobility was: that’s $12.5 billion. But it’s possible for us to dig a little deeper and see what the real net cost is as well. And that net cost might have been as low as $1.5 billion, which is a pretty good price for the stash of patents that we all think they were really after.

    The first deduction we should make is to the set top business that they’ve just sold to Arris:

    Google has sold Motorola Mobility’s set-top box business to Arris Group for $2.35bn in cash and stock, in a deal that will go through next year.

    The internet giant is offloading Motorola Home and getting a 15.7 per cent or so stake in broadband technology firm Arris plus $2.05bn in cash at the same time, Moto announced.

    OK, so that’s some money back. But it’s most certainly not brought that purchase price down to $1.5 billion. The other thing we need to look at is the accumulated tax losses at Motorola Mobility. These were worth nothing to Motorola, because it wasn’t making profits to offset against such losses. But as we know, Google makes a fortune so any tax losses come straight off their own tax bill and are thus valuable to the company:

    “The tax benefits of the deal make what was a good deal into a great deal,” said Robert Willens, a New York accounting and tax expert. He estimated that through the acquisition, Google can expect to reap $700m a year in tax deductions from future profits each year through 2019. Google also will be able to immediately reduce its taxes by $1bn due to Motorola Mobility’s US net operating loss, and by a further $700m due to its foreign operating loss, he said.

    Tot those tax losses up, add the income from Arris, subtract from the original headline price and it does indeed look like Google only paid a net price of $1.5 billion for Motorola Mobility.

    Which is a pretty good deal when you come to calculate it all out.

    Hmm not sure I believe all of those tax accounting assumptions. Also Google took the operating losses for the last few years. Another issue is what the actual cash flow was. If Google paid cash initially and if moto was cash flow negative, then it was a real problem.

    Looks like Lenovo might have been smart to avoid bbry if it can get the moto assets this cheap though.

    So what will Samsung's strategy be going forward? All-in on Android or continue Tizen development?

    I think they might ditch it.

    Probably continue with Tizen. Considering how long they've been working at it, they might as well see it through at this point. They could also be waiting to see how well Jolla Sailfish is accepted.

    This is very stupid calculation. According to his logic, then Google should keep this division and make it lose $100 billion so Google will get $40 billions tax write-off and make 38.9 billion profit from buying Motorola Moibility.

    So to a contributing and active member of the forums you have to be a *ick? I know what I'm looking for just a little more consensus. I wonder where you would be without information to help you - far from it of you profiting and yet participating in this thread and gaining I formation huh? Hmm.

    Stuck in Atlanta airport in that epic mess. Thank god for BlackBerry travel, hub with all the channels of communication and the spare battery I just plop when I burned through the first one. All the iPhone folks at the charging stations making me giggle.

    Hoping for one last chance to get out of here tonight or maybe I will be forced to blog from the terminal as I spend the night here.

    Can hardly wait to get home so I can upgrade to 10.2.1. Spent the past 2 days reading all the cool things on t update and have had the darn update notification just sitting there.

    Cheers all
