    Unfortunately it's been proven time and time again that being better or the best doesn't really matter. "Good enough" is what wins the masses. There's a market for better or best, but it's not going to be the mass market.

    In the commoditized smart phone market that Android created, we have to remember that. Ina Fried, from last week's Re/code interview with John Chen, demonstrated just that when she asked him why should she care if her house got hacked. People just don't care about security, and even if it does bite them, they still won't care! Malware and Android are almost synonymous but who's winning the platform war?
    Yes, but it's not entirely black and white. The masses - everyone really - are susceptible to narrative. The need a reason to love BlackBerry. Obviously, Apple are the best at creating such narrative, but BlackBerry have the opportunity to do so. We just need to wait and see what's on offer this fall, and what sort of narrative accompanies it. The 'serious business man' has turned 'social', and we need to see if BlackBerry have finally accepted that...cant rely on being 'loved' my people who only use you because they have no choice.

    BlackBerry commits to enterprise and Internet of Things markets - IT News from V3.co.uk

    BlackBerry has confirmed that it will refocus on the enterprise as it looks to recover from declining sales of its handsets, but the firm also has an eye on opportunities around the Internet of Things with its QNX real-time operating system.

    Speaking at the BlackBerry Experience event in London, BlackBerry's managing director for Europe, Markus Mueller, told an audience of customers that the firm is "re-pivoting to the enterprise" with its strategy, building on the existing security and management capabilities in its BlackBerry Enterprise Service (BES).

    "Enterprise is our heritage. That's where security matters, and that's where trust matters," he said, conceding that BlackBerry had lost some of its focus in previous years in order to pursue the consumer smartphone market.

    However, the firm is now "returning to its roots" and will "re-establish its leadership", he said, with more features and broader enterprise support, such as opening its APIs to other mobile management vendors and the addition of Windows Phone support in BES 12.

    Mueller said that BlackBerry's strategy will comprise three parts: supporting enterprise mobility; enabling productivity; and in the future expanding into the Internet of Things through its QNX platform, which already underpins the BlackBerry 10 operating system in the firm's smartphones.

    Mueller also told the audience that if you listened to many of the press reports over the past year or so "you would have thought that BlackBerry was finished", but that customers using BlackBerry technology know better than this.

    He pointed to the security benefits of using BlackBerry for an organisation's enterprise mobility management solution, quoting figures showing that the average cost of a data breach to firms in the US during 2012 was $5.4m.

    However, he also claimed that budget constraints have proved one of the biggest barriers to greater adoption of mobile technology in the enterprise, but that BlackBerry's platform is the most cost-effective solution on the market.

    This was backed up by customers lined up for a panel discussion at the event. Alastair Lang, service delivery manager at Cordia, which provides home care services for Glasgow City Council, said his firm had evaluated rival platforms but those that offered similar capabilities were "almost double the cost of BlackBerry in some cases".

    Referring to the bring your own device (BYOD) trend of the past few years, Mueller said that this had often not lived up to expectations.

    "The idea was to save money while giving more choice to users, but what actually happened is that it became a nightmare, with lots of different devices with different versions of iOS and Android finding their way into organisations. It actually created more cost," he said.

    BlackBerry instead sees organisations following a corporate-owned, personally enabled (COPE) model, but said it still intends to enable BYOD as well as support customers with fully restricted environments.

    "What we're trying to do is solve all of those use cases," Mueller said.

    He cited Mercedes as one customer where executives are restricted to corporate-liable devices, most users can pick from a restricted choice of devices under COPE, and a smaller number are allowed BYOD for limited access just to email, for example.

    With BES 12 and beyond, BlackBerry is aiming to deliver a full, cross-platform mobility platform, according to Mueller.

    "We started out with email and PIM capabilities, but we are moving up the stack in terms of securing not only email but other apps, app management and app security," he said, adding: "We want to become the single trusted provider for enterprise mobility."

    Meanwhile, BlackBerry is also looking beyond smartphones, and has an eye on the potentially huge market for devices with the Internet of Things.

    "Over the next 10 years, the number of connected devices will grow massively, with estimates ranging from more than 50 billion to more than a trillion," Mueller said.

    QNX, which BlackBerry acquired in 2010, is already a widely deployed embedded platform in the automotive, healthcare and security markets, thanks to its robust real-time capabilities.

    BlackBerry is now looking to expand its reach into consumer devices such as connected appliances, but also retail environments and so-called smart city schemes. The firm last month announced an initiative called Project Ion to drive QNX for the Internet of Things.

    Hi gang !
    News from the MDM front ... Good bought Fixmo.
    Not sure what to think, given the latest evolutions of BES (BlackBerry providing APIs to MDM competitors) but if I remind correcly, Fixmo is a major actor in DOD space, isn't it ?
    Also, where did Good find the cash to buy Fixmo ?
    => food for thoughts ...

    Thank you, that sounds good but I am inclined to be careful when it's coming from one guy versus a broad report.

    What's the likelihood of Chen reporting on the Z3 sales with some actual numbers as opposed to some vague statement ? I think there was only around two full weeks of sales before the end of the quarter...

    Slim IMO...it's a no win to give specifics because no matter what number he could possibly say the sell short camps and dooms dayers would exploit it.

    Good point, mind you it seems as though Chen has perfected the art of finding a way to put a positive spin on things, and the media have somehow responded well (or better then in the past) so I might remain optimistic until then...

    Won't there be some way to get context to the sale numbers. From what the chat boards say the phone is only available by order. There is no stock in the stores. Seems like Foxtron is being very you cautious with inventory. But it also might be that there is good demand and things are selling out. But the market needs to know!

    The simple context will be if they release numbers that show they're selling more phones than last quarter, with BB10 now outselling BB7, it will show that the platform has gained traction.

    That's all that's important in the market at the moment. Without that staying power, BB10 is still considered dead in the water.

    OT ALERT!!!

    I'll make a brief comment here, HALO is all about the FDA lifting its hold on PEGPH20 as you well know, the stock is poised to breakout at any moment and now we have both the IBB and the NBI Indexes hitting 2 month highs today. The majority of biotech stocks are sitting right on their support levels and just below their confirmed breakout levels. As far as HALO goes, watch for that downward sloping blue line in the chart to break as the stock moves to the upside from here.

    Here's HALO:

    The BBRY Café.  [Formerly: I support BBRY and I buy shares]-halo-june-4-2014.png

    As you can see, we are very close to starting a major rally here, the 50-dma is at $ 8.38/shr and so any good news from the FDA will send this one flying. The FDA has 30 days to respond to HALO's request to lift the HOLD, that date is now June 12th. I realize we have been waiting over 2 months for these stocks to get going again but the indexes are leading the way with larger Biotech stocks moving up now. The smaller stocks will follow too. I still hold all of my shares in everything so far, no additions or sales as I believe Biotech will come roaring back. GL

    As for BBRY, as you can clearly see, today we have the strongest push above it's 50-dma in a very long time. It looks as though the rally has begun now that the threat of Apple and it's lame day in the news is over.

    I would refer you to the Canadian Cancer Society:

    Canadian Cancer Society’s perspective on DCA

    As you can see by their link to formal research, there is very little work being done in clinically guided research to this date. At question is the quantity of the drug that would be needed for human benefit, and of course, how much hyper-oxygenated pressure would be required to replenish O2 in the cancerous cells. It looks as though other programs with micro delivery techniques are favoured for cancer treatment today.
