    Yes, I too have Honeywell programmable tstats ....but no one seems to make net connected types for baseboard electric heating systems...just furnace and ac type systems.

    Get a Raspberry Pi and a breadboard - that could probably control anything you want. Maybe a temperature and a relay (Makeatronics: 24V AC Solid State Relay Board) would make the job easier? My 10yo son is building what he calls an "Apple TV" with it.

    That's debatable, we are already seeing the sort of commodification we see in mature markets - even then, the structure of the market is (to me) now more important than the players, and it's a structure that requires the sort of financial resources that BBRY don't have.
    You're right, it is becoming commoditized, but I don't believe a comeback necessarily needs to mean being the number one handset maker, just far higher than skidding along the bottom as they are currently.

    This question is for the charts and numbers crew: now that we have comfortably crossed the $10 mark, can we expect anything different than before we crossed it? I'm wondering whether we should expect a big pullback next week, or whether this is likely to be a period of upward movement that will last more than a few days. Obviously none of us is a fortune teller, but you guys do seem to have crystal balls at times (oh dear...not sure how that could be interpreted...). anyway just wondering what we make of all this.

    BBM Money would blow all other IM apps out of the water. The great thing is that if BlackBerry could manage this, WhatsApp and the rest could do nothing but watch. No one is likely to trust those other apps with the security needed to do something like this. I really hope we see BBM Money in 2014. It's the right kind of thinking - not catching up, but coming up with something totally different and unique.

    I see the chart as looking like this:

    The BBRY Café.  [Formerly: I support BBRY and I buy shares]-bbry-chart-feb-25th-2014.png

    I think we can safely say the the first official uptrend line is now in place. That means that our best guess for a resistance line runs just above it and therefore we have some room to roam here. I could see us back up a bit here and fill that gap from today and then move sideways for a week or so. Base building is what sets us up for another pop that can hold, so there is nothing wrong with a pause to refresh here. The big event is, of course, The Golden Cross which looks like it is going to happen around mid March. That's where the 50-dma passes up through the 200-dma while both are raising, a very bullish event. Support becomes the 200-dma now and I believe we could move over towards my uptrend line in the days ahead. The stock is really coming into its own these days.

    Like someone said earlier . . . . where is the Media Outcry???

    What Apple’s very serious security problem means for you

    By now, millions of people know that Apple – the world’s largest technology company – released an innocuous-sounding update to fix a critical security flaw in its iPhones and iPads late Friday afternoon.

    Coincidentally, Friday is often the time of the week where bad news goes to get buried – and what this update sought to fix was as bad as bad news gets.

    For over 18 months, it has been trivial for an attacker to lay your digital life bare. Almost all of Apple’s devices – and more recently, some of its computers – have been vulnerable to digital eavesdropping since September 2012. Someone with control of your favourite coffee shop’s router, say, could intercept seemingly encrypted information as it makes its way to Facebook, or the website of your bank.

    We’re going to explain what’s going on and why you should be concerned. But before you continue reading we recommend you stop what you’re doing and update your devices now. iPhones, iPads and iPod Touch devices running iOS 7 are affected – but the bug is so serious that there’s a rare update for older generation devices still running iOS 6, too. The bug also exists in Apple computers running the latest versions of OS X, Mavericks version 10.9 and higher. A patch for affected Macs was only just released this afternoon.

    So, what happened?

    The security layer that is supposed to prevent this sort of thing from happening was waylaid by a very simple bug. A single line of code, somehow inserted where it did not belong, invalidated a very, very important security check.

    The repercussions, according to an Apple security disclosure, are this: “An attacker with a privileged network position may capture or modify data in sessions protected by SSL/TLS.”

    In English, there are two protocols that are fundamental to the secure transfer of data on the Internet today. One is called Secure Sockets Layer, or SSL, and the other is Transport Layer Security, or TLS. Broadly speaking, the two protocols handle the same thing – the encryption of data being transferred between you and remote servers. That server could be Google or Facebook. It could be your bank.

    When you try to connect to a website or service that uses one of these two protocols, your computer and the remote server do a sort of digital handshake. Verification keys are exchanged. The server uses your keys to confirm that you are, indeed, who you say you are, and your device is supposed to do the same for the server.

    Except, in this case, Apple devices weren’t conducting the requisite server checks.

    That “privileged attacker” Apple mentioned in its security disclosure could be the guy in the coffee shop on his laptop working on a “screenplay.” It could be your boss. Essentially, anyone with access to the gateway through which you connect to the Internet – usually a router or switch – could masquerade as anyone, from Facebook to your bank.

    This attacker could, unbeknownst to you, conduct what is called a man-in-the-middle attack. He or she could simply siphon off your data as it is being sent and received, or even modify data as it passes through.

    What makes this bug so alarming is that, to the user, there’s no sign that anything is amiss. Everything happens behind the scenes. You can usually trust that a connection is secure by the presence of a lock icon, somewhere near your web browser’s address bar. But now that icon is impossible to trust. Connections many believed to be secure may have been anything but.

    It’s important to remember that this bug affects far more than just browsing. It affects apps, services – pretty much anything that communicates over the Internet using Apple’s implementation of SSL or TLS. That means the Calendar and Mail apps on your Mac and iPhone are vulnerable, for example, as are countless other third-party apps that rely on Apple’s security code.

    Software such as Google Chrome and Mozilla’s Firefox web browser, however, which use alternate implementations of SSL and TLS, are believed to be secure.

    On a large scale, man-in-the-middle attacks are hard to pull off. What’s more likely is a localized attacker compromising the router at your home, or at a restaurant or bar. As such, the likelihood that your data was captured over the past 18 months is slim – but all bets are off now that the exploit is more widely known.

    Proof-of-concept attacks already exist, in fact. There is still some cause for alarm. So update your Apple devices, and as always, exercise common sense. Wireless networks – and the devices we use to connect to them – are rarely as secure as we believe them to be.

    The only pseudo-rational argument that I can make for posting this video and trying to justify some sort of a link with what is the subject matter of this thread is that I think we have a had a very fruitful day and that, at times, over the last two days, one could have been under the impression that the SP was almost immune to the forces of gravity... Wow, that is pulling it a bit. You be the judge! For a bit of AH fun...

    After all the somewhat astonished news reports of BBRY's good fortunes this week, I found this article from an apparently grumpy and indignant iPhone user to be quite amusing. Even more amusing, dare I say, than the CNBC report...

    BBM Potential
    "The potential is going to be huge" for BBM, Chen said in a Feb. 25 interview with Bloomberg Television at the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona. "Until we get to the point that we can showcase that potential, it is a bit too early to think about getting our $19 billion."

    I struggle to see how BlackBerry could rationally sell BBM. How do you sell an asset or part of your business that contains your name in its acronym? How does that company change the name without losing the brand value? What does BlackBerry then do with its communication services after selling such a valuable asset? Most importantly, how on earth would BBM retain its reputation for security after no longer being under BlackBerry control? How could BlackBerry market it ability to offer complete secure communications when they no longer control a vital part of it?

    I do hope Chen is just playing a game here. As an investor, I want solid long term money and not short term cash for selling the silverware. I think we all need to keep in mind that Chen has serious carpetbagger tendencies, even if we all think he's doing a great job right now (and I do).

    In my view, selling BBM would be a terrible mistake, and would inevitably damage the value of BlackBerry in the long term. I really hope Chen is just manipulating the media here, and not seriously considering such folly. Selling your silverware is a loser's move. Would Apple sell iTunes?

    I'd rather see a strong, multifaceted BlackBerry, and BBM Money growing to be the world's leading mobile money transfer service. That's worth far more than $19 billion over the long term.
