    It seems there is yet another virus found for the "secure" iOS. This time, it doesn't require the phone to be jailbroken.

    Seems like whole CB site is under organized attack to bad mouth BlackBerry. There are multiple threads created for the same BS by the usual suspects.
    Not sure what triggered it. Started right after those January 7-8 puts went up? Are we approaching Nov 13th and BlackBerry will be announcing something important?

    Posted using BlackBerry passport.
    A lot of this crap started with the very successful release of the Passport! The Opposition is "awfaid, very awfaid".

    Had you just looked at the thread title you could successfully guess that the OP, starting the smear, was a newbie with less than 50-70 posts and usually less than 10 posts.

    Remember the Samsung paid hate attacks?

    They are "awfaid, very awfaid"!

    Thanks, Here is title of article.

    Exposed: Ikea, Pepsi amongst 340 companies with secret Luxembourg tax deals

    Duchy in row with EU over releasing details of tax arrangements.

    In some instances, the leaked records indicate, companies have enjoyed effective tax rates of less than 1 percent on the profits they’ve shuffled into Luxembourg.

    Other companies seeking tax deals from Luxembourg come from private equity, real estate, banking, manufacturing, pharmaceuticals and other industries, the leaked files show. They include Accenture, Abbott Laboratories, American International Group (AIG), Amazon, Blackstone, Deutsche Bank, the Coach handbag empire, HJ Heinz, JP Morgan Chase, Burberry, Procter & Gamble, the Carlyle Group and the Abu Dhabi Investment Authority.

    Very interesting, Corbu. In your top link from PRNewswire, BBRY dominates the section/paragraph about the smartphone patent wars. Seems very positive. The Washington Post piece, however, sounds incredulous that BBRY has been included.... Sigh.

    Thanks for the great posts, as always!

    Let me start off by saying I am open minded, and willing to take criticism towards BlackBerry, but it must be properly based.

    When articles start mentioning how Blackberry's security is nothing special, you have to ask some questions.

    Why would the German government go into contract with them, after they were recently snooped on by the US? I am sure they would have done their own research on the matter and would have found an-as-nsa-proof-as-possible solution.

    Second, if their security is nothing special why are there so few press releases about security flaws vs apple, samsung, good technologies et al etc. As chen has mentioned security must be built in at every level and I think BlackBerry are the only company that do this comprehensively.

    Thirdly, even if apple and google security were better than BlackBerry 's the issue is that they have been shown to be in cohoots with the US government. In my opinion, people are more concerned about the government snooping on them than other people or criminals, modern governments are the criminals!

    Tl:dr. Where is the evidence of security flaws and breaches: there aren't any!

    Going Beyond Tech Support: New Services You Shouldn?t Miss | | Inside BlackBerry for Business Blog

    BES 12 stuff...

    For years, BlackBerry has provided customers with top notch, industry-leading technical support. That won’t ever change. But we are making some important changes to ensure our enterprise customers have exactly the help they need, in all the ways they want it. We’ll be blogging about these updates soon.

    For right now, I want to let you know about several new service programs – additions to what we offer today.

    BES12 Professional Services

    We’ve always offered services that go far beyond traditional break-fix support, from change management to tech-to-site dispatching. So it shouldn’t be a shock that our portfolio is expanding to include more than just technical support.

    After all, our history and roots are in helping customers operate business- and mission-critical deployments, whatever it takes.

    With the introduction of BES12, we’re ensuring that our customers have access to the support and services they need to be successful.

    We understand that resources are tight. And while an organization may have the skills to perform planning, installations, and migrations on their own, finding the time to do so may be the real challenge.

    With that in mind, BlackBerry is introducing three new implementation services that extend beyond traditional support to ensure customers that need an additional helping hand have access to the services they need.

    BES12 Planning Services

    We’ll help create a technical plan, and architecture diagram, customized to your environment. Large companies with complex environments might request an expert eye to ensure that their BES12 deployment will go smoothly and to ensure they take advantage of new features, while small customers may need more hands-on guidance because their IT guru is doing more than just BlackBerry Enterprise Server administration.

    BES12 Remote Installation

    We’ll help create the plan, and then remote into your environment to install BES12. Once BES12 is installed, BlackBerry will leverage your test devices to ensure services are up and running, so you can migrate users at your own pace.

    BES12 Migration

    Finally, for those customers who seem to have an endless number of IT projects in flight, we’re offering a full BES12 migration service. Post-installation, we’ll also help with the migration of users from a previous BlackBerry environment or competitive1 EMM solution to BES12.

    BlackBerry Partner Support Services

    In addition to this new suite of services, we’re working with partners to ensure our customers have access to a broad offering of BlackBerry-backed services.

    By engaging our partners, you can tap in to local help and niche expertise, and you can consolidate service vendors so you have less to manage.

    Our teams have been working with partners to ensure that they become BlackBerry-certified and complete the necessary requirements which give them access to senior-level analysts at BlackBerry. That way, you can rest assured that if you’re working with an authorized BlackBerry Service Provider, your partner has access to BlackBerry for troubleshooting if they run into a scenario that they can’t resolve on their own.

    We’ll be posting a follow-up on the BlackBerry Partner Support Services program in the near future, so stay tuned.

    For those of you who followed the story that was posted yesterday by bungaboy:
    BlackBerry COO: Comments from former NSA lawyer 'don't make any sense'

    BlackBerry CEO Marty Beard says the comments by a former NSA lawyer that the company’s demise is based on its encryption philosophy don’t “make any sense.”

    Beard responded to the claims at Fedscoop’s FedTalks event after giving a talk on digitally protecting critical government assets.

    “Security is a topic that’s increasing in importance,” Beard said. “It’s the reason that all G7 countries and the G20 work with BlackBerry.”

    At a web summit in Dublin, Ireland, former NSA lawyer Stewart Baker claimed that BlackBerry’s struggle in the mobile marketplace were due to its encryption efforts, and that Apple and Google would follow BlackBerry’s path by including encryption on its mobile devices.

    “BlackBerry pioneered the same business model that Google and Apple are doing now,” Baker told a Guardian UK editor. “That has not ended well for BlackBerry.”

    “I would take a completely opposite view from that comment,” Beard told FedScoop. “We just see it growing in importance. The increasing cybersecurity threats are exploding, security across all [technology] layers is critical.”

    Beard also talked about the company’s restructuring Thursday, including the fact the company has increased its cash on hand for the “first time in many many quarters,” eliminated $2 billion in operating expenses over the last 12 months, and a renewed focus on regulated industries, such as government. Beard also highlighted a Security Technical Implementation Guide approval from the Defense Information Systems Agency for its mobile device management suite.

    “Government has always been, far and away, our largest regulated industry that we focus on,” Beard said during his keynote. “And the reason in security.”

    Can't be surprised....Apple PR has a lot of money to throw around at this stuff.

    "Provided can't view it" and "past comms are secure if your keys are stolen"

    Ok...so how does iMessage do that?

    iMessage can't even be sure to send an iMessage vs a text.
