    Mr. Chen last week expressed frustration that analysts were expecting a quicker turnaround than he himself had promised when he said he needed two years to get BlackBerry back on track. But he also admitted earlier this month the company has had difficulty getting much support from carriers, which were a key part of the companys success before it ceded its lead as the worlds leading smartphone platform four years ago. The company is attempting to rebuild its sales force by focusing on direct sales to customers, and recently hired Howard Stevens, another former senior SAP exec in its telecom group, to head sales efforts to wireless carriers.
    Kinda hard to sell something when the carriers don't want to sell your product. Seems Johnson is the fall guy.

    Given all the problems people were having with Digital River, BlackBerry has quite a bit of work ahead of them on the direct sales route too.

    My girlfriend insisted that I open a present early, because I was yammering about BlackBerry again. She said she wanted to get me a BlackBerry, but I already have them all. (I held off from bringing up the red Passport)

    I don't know if I'm missing something but why is it a demotion? He moved him to take care of enterprise sales. An area that Chen mentioned they will be focusing on next quarter. Is it a demotion to move Eric there knowing that they place a lot of importance in that area?

    Readings material.

    BlackBerrys patents are a gold mine - if they ditch handsets (RTGAM)

    SEAN SILCOFF

    OTTAWA A huge patent sale involving BlackBerry Ltd. raises several questions about the value of its intellectual property stash. The answers might not be what investors would expect.

    [BOLD]Three years ago, a consortium including BlackBerry Ltd., Apple Inc. and Microsoft Corp. bought a portfolio of 6,000 Nortel Networks patents for $4.5-billion (U.S.). On Tuesday, the Wall Street Journal reported the group, Rockstar Consortium Inc., sold 4,000 of the patents to holding company RPX Corp. for $900-million.

    Does that mean the value of patents has collapsed since 2011? Rockstar paid an average of $750,000 per patent in 2011; it is now getting $225,000. Indeed, does that mean the value of BlackBerrys entire patent portfolio is worth far less than the $1-billion to $3-billion analysts estimate?

    The answers arent as dire as they may appear on the surface. Desmond Lau, an analyst with Veritas Investment Research, says that even if BlackBerrys 44,000 patents were worth less than half the value of the Rockstar deal say $100,000 a patent Youd still have $4.4-billion of value, well above most estimates.[/BOLD]

    That indicates the market is not assigning a very high value to BlackBerrys patent portfolio, Mr. Lau said.
    This is almost word-for-word what I wrote. Hmm....

    Looks to be a custom engraving on a blank Zippo.
    Pretty easy for it to be done.
    Nice and unique.
    It would look great on a black Zippo also.
    Thoughtful gift.
