    It's much lower than that

    Posted via CB10
    Was higher than that but with the debentures might be around $19.

    In any event would have to be disclosed. Conversion would also have to be disclosed. Too soon to trade then, at this SP no gain since ce they make income now. SP not high enough to compensate for the loss of income

    Press basis is $17 per shareholders letter.

    This is pre convertible debt.

    BBM for iOS does have problems. I have been in touch with BBM iOS product development team and they've admitted to some problems. A lot depends on how your end user uses BBM for iOS. Let me explain ([I]and this has been discussed with BBM iOS team already and they've admitted to it, so I am not making it up. I used to work for BBRY R&D in 2008 straight out of school, so still have some friends there... .
    Chrysaurora, you should post that message in the BBM for iOS thread. And with the news of a new update can you check with your buddies and find out if they have wrestled any of the issues to the ground? Thanks in advance!

    We need a rumor to get some traction. There has been a steady stream of good news coming from BlackBerry. They need a big announcement before the Passport release.
    Either that or a someone need to release a nasty bug on Android, Apple and Windows. That might be a bit too drastic though. ;-)

    This is not good. Explains the discontinuation of Z10 though. The apple fans will be having a field day with this one...

    Lol, came on here to post this. Read the article. All three manufacturers prone to the attack, however the misleading title would have you believe that BlackBerry is the only one

    OT:
    Samsung and Apple to Lose Global Smartphone Market Share
    https://www.fitchratings.com/gws/en/...Market%20Share

    Fitch Ratings-Singapore/Sydney-12 August 2014: Samsung's and Apple's global smartphone shipment market share will decline to around 25% and 14%, respectively, by 2015 (2013: 31% and 15%), says Fitch Ratings. The decline will be due largely to rising competition in emerging markets, where lower-priced handset models from local competitors should continue to gain market share at the expense of the big two. In these markets, where cost is relatively more important than global brand strength or cutting-edge technology, competitors' devices retailing at USD100-300 can offer most of the key features of more expensive phones from Samsung and Apple.

    We expect the big two's combined smartphone shipment volume to stagnate at around 450 million-460 million units in 2014 (2013: 467 million), even as the global smartphone market rises by around 20% to 1.2 billion.

    Fitch estimates that smartphones account for roughly two-thirds of the global handset market, and we believe growth will come largely from emerging markets. India and China together are expected to account for over 60% of growth in smartphone shipment volumes. Local handset makers including China's Xiaomi, Lenovo, Huawei and India's Micromax Informatics are the principal large competitors for Apple and Samsung.

    According to data from IDC, global smartphone shipment volumes increased by 5% in 2Q14 to 295 million units (1Q14: 281 million units). In China, Xiaomi took the lead with 15 million devices with a market share of 15% - ahead of Samsung's 12%, which shipped 13.2 million smartphones.

    Concurrently, developed markets' smartphone profitability should also continue to decline, as market saturation and the lower incremental benefits of new models has lengthened the replacement cycle and slowed growth. Competition has also intensified as more manufacturers have been able to produce devices which exceed most consumers' design and technical requirements.

    Apple's next iPhone, rumoured to be launched in September 2014, is likely to have a larger screen, and developments are likely to be incremental rather than revolutionary. We believe that the innovations - which include curved screens and compatible wearable devices - are unlikely to change the trend facing Samsung and Apple.

    Nevertheless, we do not expect these trends to affect Samsung's credit rating (A+/Stable). Our analysis has always assumed that smartphone margins of the last few years were unsustainable in the long term. For some time, Samsung's ratings have been constrained by its long-term exposure to cyclical businesses and investment-intensive markets, despite very strong financial metrics.

    As I understand it, the guys who found the vulnerability also released the patch to carriers at the same time - true white hat hakers. The patch has to come from your cellular carrier so it's not sure that everyone has it yet.

    Also while this was announced a few days ago, the guys who discovered it are presenting at Black Hat - in effect peer review of their work - which is outstanding you want what they found out and understood in their industry.

    That's why it's back in the news.

    "Taking on the competition
    Having built their own operating system at QNX, Dodge is dismissive of other competing IoT systems, particularly Linux variants like Android and Tizen.

    “Tizen has been re-invented three times and now Samsung is putting weight behind it in the wearables field, but as a robust secure OS to go into other markets I don’t see anything.”

    “Tizen is just Linux with a few frameworks on top with a real focus on HTML5 and web applications. Does that make it secure? No.”

    Once of the advantages Dodge cites for QNX is that every line has been written by his own team

    “It doesn’t have a line taken from Linux, everything is ours. We own the IP and multiple patents.

    “Linux can never be certified because it’s SOUP – Source Of Unknown Providence – you cannot certify a base of source that you have no idea of where it came from or the development practices that created it.

    “A lot of our customers rely upon not just our intrinsic architecture of our systems but also we have the certification to go into medical devices, military devices and safety systems that the Linuxes just can’t.”

    I hope that there will be a consumer level offering for a secure home infrastructure. Would love the ability to hook up a bunch of gadgets like Nest, Phillips Hue lights, etc under a secure BB server.

    True...however they released the info in early June, it was blogged and reported on in early June and BlackBerry CSO commented on it in early June...I do not think it's "news" now because they are speaking/ presenting at Black Hat. Is it news again when they talk at Sea? Is it news again if they present next year somewhere else?

    Just my take on it...

    Agree 100% with him and He is not sugar coating or BSing. I work as security analyst and deal with the compliance requirements including credit cards process such as PCI, privacy compliance requirements ( most strict here in BC, Canada ) and other IT security standards and open source which is community coded can never be certified. It might be secure as others but no one company or source can put a signature behind it and most CIOs and regulated industries just require that signature of assurance and liability to cover their **** and shift the liability to vendors. Only private and closed systems can be assured and certified unless audit trail can be provided and proven that all programmers used best practices to code the OS, systems.
    I think BB has the best opportunities in the new IoT world which is next phase after after smart phones boom. They just have to get it right and execute. I won';t be surprised if Microsoft, Google or apple interested in buying BB.
