    I'd like to hear what Morgan or any big traders here have to say.
    Like I mentioned, that show Margin Call, plus this has me a tad nervous.

    What typical numbers would we expect to see if this would occur ?

    Anyone want to take a shot?

    Hello Gang !
    Back in business after almost 2 weeks of lazy and easy going so I have to catch up and won't be there much for a few days.
    Kofi did it again but please, don't link him here or - better - don't click on his link anywhere.
    I'm pi$$3d with his FUD, please don't give him money nor promote his (terrible) articles.

    I for one started on nerves when I read the title. Then I saw the author, the kind of author that NEVER answer to comments and obviously is not ashamed by his barely scholar and undocumented work.
    Then I realize it's just someone that want his TITLE to hit various stock related sites/threads ("C&B rebound") because he knows he writes deliberate provocation for bears; the usual Kofi.
    Then I realize it's always a signal of good performance for $BBRY.
    I shouldn't write that, nor should I click on the link in the email or link this anywhere; he's better at e-marketing than stocks.

    Have a nice week !
    Cheers

    I think it does matter. Intel came up with their catchy "intel inside" marketing campaign it got them out of the white label. Maybe someone could chart up intel's SP versus AMD or similar and superimpose the "intel inside" marketing campaign along the timeline. Blackberry can bring in revenue as a white label partner yes, but they can bring in more as a recognizable label. Heck, if Apple can sell their wares at a huge markup compared to the rest of the market then BlackBerry and QNX should be able to market themselves as a cut above too. BlackBerry was the "go to" device for everybody at one time. if QNX is going to be the "go to" infrastructure then they might as well get the public on board and be able to raise the fees.
    Automotive is a very specific place where brands NEVER advertize their suppliers, because they're few and shared by most brands.
    So far, QNX has done a good job here and even @QNX_paul stands muted about them except for demo/showcase vehicles.
    We saw this rule (kinda) broken with the Audi ... but I'm not sure it'll go further.

    QNX Helps Automakers Gear Up for Integrated Driving Experiences at 2015 CES

    ================================================== =========================

    QNX demonstrates how seamless integration of infotainment, ADAS, and instrument cluster technologies can enable a simpler, safer, more enjoyable drive.

    LAS VEGAS, NEVADA--(Marketwired - Jan 5, 2015) - 2015 International CES (North Hall, Booth 2231), January 5, 2015 - QNX Software Systems Limited, a subsidiary of BlackBerry Limited, today demonstrated how its comprehensive suite of solutions for infotainment systems, digital instrument clusters, and advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS) can enable highly integrated driving experiences that promote safer driving.

    The demonstrations include the new QNX technology concept car, based on a Maserati Quattroporte GTS, and the QNX reference vehicle, based on a Jeep Wrangler. Both vehicles integrate an array of third-party and QNX technologies - including sensors, cameras, navigation engines, cloud-based services, speech interfaces, and acoustics software - to create experiences that simplify driving tasks, warn of possible collisions, and enhance overall driver awareness.

    "From vision sensors to smartphones, the car is experiencing a massive influx of new technologies, and automakers must blend these in a way that is simple, helpful, and non-distracting," said Andrew Poliak, global director of business development, QNX Software Systems. "With its full range of road-proven solutions, QNX is ideally suited to helping automakers and automotive tier-one suppliers achieve this goal, while giving them the flexibility to create experiences that project their unique brand values."

    ADAS Demonstrations

    To help automotive companies satisfy the growing consumer and regulatory demand for ADAS features, QNX offers the new QNX OS for Automotive Safety. The vehicles at 2015 CES demonstrate how ADAS systems based on the QNX OS can reliably integrate data from multiple sensors - camera, ultrasonic, LiDAR - to help drivers detect threats and avoid collisions. ADAS features in the QNX technology concept car include:
    •Digital instrument cluster with speed recommendations, collision warnings, and parking assist - Designed to heighten driver awareness, the instrument cluster can show the current speed limit, display an alert if the car exceeds the limit, and even recommend an appropriate speed for upcoming curves. It also warns of obstacles on the road ahead and can display turn-by-turn directions provided by the car's infotainment system. To simplify backing into tight spaces, the cluster also offers intelligent parking assist, which combines a wide-angle rear-view display with overlaid guidelines to indicate the car's reverse trajectory.

    To present the speed information and collision warnings, the cluster uses the EB Assist ADASISv2S Electronic Horizon Solution from Elektrobit and LiDAR obstacle detection powered by Phantom Intelligence. The cluster's human-machine interface (HMI) was designed by Rightware, using the Rightware Kanzi UI Solution.


    •ADAS display for enhancing obstacle awareness - This innovative LED-based display allows drivers to gauge the direction and proximity of objects to the front, rear, and sides of the vehicle, without having to take their eyes off the road. Stretching the width of the dash, the display integrates input from the car's ultrasonic and LiDAR sensors to provide a centralized view of ADAS warnings. The display is based on Active Lighting Technologies from TE Connectivity.


    •Rear- and side-view displays with blind-spot warnings - The QNX concept team has transformed the car's rear- and side-view mirrors into video displays that offer a complete view of the scene behind and to the sides of the vehicle. The side-view displays also provide color-coded alerts to warn of cars or other objects approaching the car's blind zones.



    All the above systems in the QNX technology concept car run on Snapdragon Automotive Solutions, featuring the Qualcomm Snapdragon™ 602A applications processor, an automotive-grade infotainment chipset from Qualcomm Technologies, Inc., with support for sophisticated graphics, HMIs, voice recognition, audio processing, and multiple HD displays and cameras.

    ADAS features in the QNX reference vehicle, based on a Jeep Wrangler, include:
    •ADAS system that can detect traffic signs and warn of lane departures - To help enable driver awareness, the vehicle's ADAS system uses Itseez's sophisticated computer-vision algorithms for traffic sign recognition, forward collision warnings, and lane departure warnings; the corresponding alerts are displayed in the vehicle's digital instrument cluster.


    •Realtime virtual drive demonstration - Exclusive to 2015 CES, a 12-foot high-definition screen will accompany the reference vehicle to demonstrate how QNX-based systems can process realtime ADAS data. Attendees will experience a real-world driving scenario and see first-hand how the vehicle can dynamically detect objects and provide corresponding warnings and recommendations. The scenario was recorded with Elektrobit's EB Assist ADTF framework, and the screen will display graphical overlays that illustrate the results of Itseez's ADAS algorithm processing.


    •Fast-booting rearview display - The vehicle's QNX-based infotainment head unit features a back-up camera display that can boot up in approximately 0.8 seconds - significantly faster than the two-second maximum mandated by NHTSA.



    The ADAS system, infotainment system, and digital instrument cluster in the QNX reference vehicle run on processors from Texas Instruments (TI), including the TI "Jacinto 6" infotainment processor.

    Infotainment Demonstrations

    To demonstrate the flexibility of the QNX CAR™ Platform for Infotainment, both the Maserati and the Jeep are outfitted with full-featured infotainment systems designed for natural interaction with the vehicle. For instance, the Maserati includes:
    •iHeartRadio "Drive Anywhere" radio - Never drive out of range of your favorite AM/FM radio station again. The infotainment system will detect when the AM/FM signal is missing and automatically switch to the corresponding digital iHeartRadio station, so you can continue listening to your favorite local radio anywhere you drive.


    •Natural language processing - More than a simple command-and-control interface, the car's voice recognition feature uses Nuance's Dragon Drive speech recognition engine. For instance, if you say "It's way too cold in here," the HVAC system will respond by raising the temperature in the car interior.


    •Full-featured smartphone connectivity - The system integrates with popular smartphones through a variety of protocols such as VNC Automotive, RealVNC's implementation of MirrorLink™. It also includes a full-featured multimedia engine with background synching of phone-based contacts and music for instant playback.


    •Flexible support for multiple app environments - Apps include iHeartRadio (Android), Parkopedia (HTML5), Pandora (HTML5), and Elektrobit's EB street director (native application), all running in a Qt-based human-machine interface.


    •Rear-seat controls - A backseat display lets passengers control HVAC functions, as well as navigation, song selection, and other infotainment features.



    Flying-Cam SARAH System

    The QNX booth will also feature Flying-Cam 3.0 SARAH, an Oscar-winning unmanned aerial camera system used to film death-defying camera angles for movies like Skyfall, Oblivion, Prisoners, Mr. Go, and Gone with the Bullets. Features include precision autopilot, gyro-stabilized camera head, survey-grade LiDAR, and GNSS satellite navigation, all controlled by a platform running the QNX Neutrino OS.

    Cloud Platform Demo

    The QNX booth also features an Internet of Things (IoT) demonstration by BlackBerry focused on the automotive industry. Highlights include remote browsing of vehicle data, log and fault analysis for software troubleshooting and performance optimization, vehicle data and application management, software downloads, and a key fob app that allows a driver to control designated vehicle functions from a smartphone. A second BlackBerry IoT demonstration for asset tracking provides an interface that tracks thousands of truck containers, displays current location and shipping history, and plays back a selected trip segment.

    Hey Bacon Munchers !!

    In my humble opinion, I believe we are in for a solid rally over the next few months. Let's look at what has happened with stable oil prices over the past 3 years:

    The BBRY Café.  [Formerly: I support BBRY and I buy shares]-dow-jones-3-year-chart.png

    You can see that each year that we have had stable oil prices, the market has rallied for 3 - 5 months without so much as a correction. In the Fall of 2014, we had a typical October correction that some would have you believe is the beginning of the end because it was "so volatile". What a joke that is, we saw oil drop to the basement floor to hurt Russia, that's it, wiping out trillions of dollars in stock value but at the same time, creating a windfall credit to consumers of trillions of dollars to spend! It has been a very long time since we have seen at drop in the price of energy while the economy is still growing around the world. The only bear market that exists is in Russia and energy, that's it. There has been a huge burden of debt wiped off the books of many nations because of the price of oil today. Despite all the talk of Russia taking back countries, we have traded inside a constant channel for three years now. We raise to the RSI=70 level, correct to the RSI = 30 level, and do it again while world news is disturbing and uncertain.

    Let's look at the price of oil today:

    The BBRY Café.  [Formerly: I support BBRY and I buy shares]-oil-three-year-chart.png

    Yeah, that's not a picture of "The Wall" at Snowmass - Colorado (Snowmass Expert Skiing. Gimme the Hard Stuff. ), that's the price of oil for the past three years. There is nothing bearish about the implications of oil prices that have been cut in 1/2. So now we have so called experts thinking that volatility in the market means the end of the raising channel. That's BS, the volatility came from one component, oil, that's it and now business can expect a great deal more in margins to the bottom line because the energy component of their cost base just got cut in half!!

    That's my argument!!!

    Product of the Week: The BlackBerry Classic

    Sometimes a vendor just gets it right, and the BlackBerry Classic, for anyone who misses physical keyboards on a phone or is currently using an old BlackBerry, is that product. Had BlackBerry started its turnaround effort with this phone, I think things would have gone far better.

    From a larger display to a nice hand feel, the physical design is just right. The keyboard is a nice improvement as well. The phone is a near perfect blend of the old BlackBerry users loved, in terms of physical interface, and the new BlackBerry users expect, in terms of radio technology, security and connectivity.

    The BlackBerry Classic is a reminder of what every vendor should never forget, and that is that you take care of your loyal customers first. I don't think BlackBerry will ever forget this lesson again, and because this phone represents what I think is a truly perfect blend of the old and the new, the BlackBerry Classic is my first product of the week for 2015.

    Looks like the criminal US exchange playing their criminal games. One has to expect that on the banana US exchanges. US better be careful as the whole world might one day let them play all by themselves. It's the only thing I don't like about bbry....the US exchange which IMO hates free market principals

    I totally understand why you feel that way but this isn't just a US thing, it happens everywhere today. In a way, it ticks you off because we aren't on the right side of the trade, but at the same time, you came benefit from the trends they produce. There is a huge short position which involves about $ 1 B in capital, against a company that is turning itself around. At some point, we'll see a capitulation in the bears and a rally that will make no sense at all. Today, we are seeing more of that tug a rope mentality between the bulls and the bears. The stock closed below its 3-ema on Friday, that points to a small pull-back, today we are finding support at the 50-dma and in the hours ahead, someone is going to give in. I think being short right now is plain stupid. We'll see, give it more than 20 minutes.

    BBRY rally - looking forward to seeing $15 in next couple of months.

    OT: does anyone know anything about THLD? I purchased THLD at $3.90 and it tanked right after and went under $3!! (story of my life). But it seems to be recovering now and is at $3.75 today. Should I sell it at $3.91 (no profit, no loss, cover transaction costs) or should I now put a sell order much higher than $3.91, now that it is rallying?

    I only have 150 shares. Not much money.

    Cheers

    I can understand the market as a whole getting hit but when the markets are down bbry tends to get hit 3-4X harder. Look at the markets today's down about 1% with AAPL down around 1.3% which is close to index but BBRY down 3.42% right now on no news. I can not understand that. Oops BbRY now down over 4%. This happens all the time on the criminal exchange.

    Automotive is a very specific place where brands NEVER advertize their suppliers, because they're few and shared by most brands.
    So far, QNX has done a good job here and even @QNX_paul stands muted about them except for demo/showcase vehicles.
    We saw this rule (kinda) broken with the Audi ... but I'm not sure it'll go further.
    So do you think the IoT will go the same way as the auto industry? I've always found it annoying how firms will re-use a label. I understand why they do it, but I always felt it to be dishonest.

    Apple and Google will market themselves as foundational (back end) while in fact they will be cosmetic (front end).

    I am so curious as well.
    They never seem to highlight QNX separately when it comes to revenues in the ERs.
    Maybe it is too low right now to mention?

    Hello Gang !
    Back in business after almost 2 weeks of lazy and easy going so I have to catch up and won't be there much for a few days.
    Kofi did it again but please, don't link him here or - better - don't click on his link anywhere.
    I'm pi$$3d with his FUD, please don't give him money nor promote his (terrible) articles.
    I for one started on nerves when I read the title. Then I saw the author, the kind of author that NEVER answer to comments and obviously is not ashamed by his barely scholar and undocumented work.
    Then I realize it's just someone that want his TITLE to hit various stock related sites/threads ("C&B rebound") because he knows he writes deliberate provocation for bears; the usual Kofi.
    Then I realize it's always a signal of good performance for $BBRY.
    I shouldn't write that, nor should I click on the link in the email or link this anywhere; he's better at e-marketing than stocks.

    Well, Microsoft didn't label Android with "MS inside" ... yet ... they made $Billions
    So, no matter what; "driving for the show, putting for the dough" !

    Found this bit interesting:

    QNX Helps Automakers Gear Up for Integrated Driving Experiences at 2015 CES

    Cloud Platform Demo
    The QNX booth also features an Internet of Things (IoT) demonstration by BlackBerry focused on the automotive industry. Highlights include remote browsing of vehicle data, log and fault analysis for software troubleshooting and performance optimization, vehicle data and application management, software downloads, and a key fob app that allows a driver to control designated vehicle functions from a smartphone. A second BlackBerry IoT demonstration for asset tracking provides an interface that tracks thousands of truck containers, displays current location and shipping history, and plays back a selected trip segment.
