    Strangely quiet times from BlackBerry. Haven't seen so much as an interview from Chen. Also no final month liquidation sale at ShopBB.

    It's hard to draw any conclusions, but WS seems just as baffled. I hope it's because they're too busy activating all the payment accounts for EZ-PASS converters, and scaling up Passport production.

    ... just wanted to sneak that in there. Carry on with the reposts of Hannah!

    Was thinking the same thing. This is highly suspicious imo. Chen is always out there but since Samsung rumor he is no where to be found/seen. I think this bodes well for some sort of Samsung BBRY JV or BO.

    BlackBerry Ltd (NASDAQ:BBRY) Hopes of Winning Mobile Awards with Gogo Inc. (NASDAQ:GOGO), Level 3 Communications, Inc. (NYSE:LVLT)
    BlackBerry Ltd (NASDAQ:BBRY) [Detail Analytic Report] nominated for Global Mobile Awards 2015. Mobile World Congress is the host to the Global Mobile Awards each year, and this time around BlackBerry has been added in a couple of the nominations. BlackBerry Blend has been selected as a finalist for Best Mobile App or Service for Customers and BBM Protected has been nominated in the top Security/ Anti-Fraud Product or Solution. These awards will be presented on March 3rd 2015 at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, Spain. On the other hand, U.S. district court authorized television host Ryan Seacrest’s Typo Products LLC for breaching an injunction excepting it from selling a $99 iPhone case found to have likely violated on BlackBerry patents. U.S. District Judge William Orrick in ordered Typo to give BlackBerry $860,600 in approvals, and pay attorneys’ fees and costs incurred in association with Typo’s breaching of the injunction. BlackBerry had submitted a suit in January last year against Typo, co-founded by American Idol host Seacrest, claiming that the physical keyboard it makes for some of Apple Inc’s (NASDAQ:AAPL) iPhone devices violate BlackBerry design patents.

    Sony co-chair Pascal steps down in wake of hacking scandal

    Sony co-chair Pascal steps down in wake of hacking scandal - The Globe and Mail

    Amy Pascal will step down as co-chairman of Sony Pictures Entertainment after hackers angry about a movie she championed mocking North Korea’s dictator exposed a raft of embarrassing emails between Pascal and other Hollywood figures.

    Ms. Pascal, one of the most powerful women executives in Hollywood, had kept a low profile since her emails were leaked by hackers and widely reported by media, particularly one in which she made racially insensitive remarks about President Barack Obama’s taste in films. She later apologized.

    Sony Pictures said Ms. Pascal will step down from her current post in May to launch her own production venture on the studio lot.

    Sony Pictures Chief Executive and Chairman Michael Lynton told Reuters that the emails leaked late last year played no role in his and Ms. Pascal’s decision not to renew her contract in March 2015.

    The entertainment arm of Sony Corp was victim of the most destructive cyberattack on a private company on U.S. soil.

    The U.S. government has blamed the hack on North Korea after the reclusive nation was angered by a Sony comedy “The Interview,” which depicts the fictional assassination of leader Kim Jong Un.

    Ms. Pascal had greenlighted the movie, which opened in limited release after the studio reversed a decision, condemned by Mr. Obama, to cancel its theatrical release.

    Ms. Pascal, who joined Sony’s Columbia Pictures in 1988, said in a statement that she and Mr. Lynton had been discussing her transition to producer for “quite some time.”

    “As the slate for the next 2 years has come together, it felt like the right time to transition into this new role,” Pascal said in a statement from the company, adding “I am leaving the studio in great hands.”

    Sony did not immediately disclose who would be filling her post.

    Ms. Pascal’s new production venture will focus on film, television and theater, the studio said. As part of a four-year agreement, Sony Pictures will finance Pascal’s venture and retain distribution rights to films financed.

    To go back on the Typo story, I was reading this (How Ryan Seacrest?s Typo keyboard tried to sidestep BlackBerry?s court injunction (and lost) | IT Business) and wondering whether BBRY ever did anything about their newish Typo 2 product on which the G&M spent an inordinate amount of time yesterday (pls don't give them your click, standard G&M fare... Is the Typo 2 worth all the legal trouble with BlackBerry? - The Globe and Mail). I can't recall any move on BBRY's part regarding the Typo 2. If I were them, I would not hesitate one bit.

    Regulators Probe Report on Possible Purchase of BlackBerry by Samsung - WSJ
    SEC, Canada’s OSC in Early Stages of Examining Trading Activity Around Time of Report by Reuters

    By BEN DUMMETT And DANA MATTIOLI
    Feb. 5, 2015 7:04 p.m. ET

    Securities regulators in the U.S. and Canada are probing whether a recent news report about a possible purchase of BlackBerry Ltd. by Samsung Electronics Co. was sparked by investors’ intent on manipulating the Canadian smartphone maker’s stock.

    The Securities and Exchange Commission and the Ontario Securities Commission are in the early stages of examining trading activity around the time of a report by Reuters in January that Samsung was pursuing a takeover of BlackBerry for as much as $7.5 billion, according to people familiar with the matter. Investigators are looking at whether someone deliberately fed information to reporters at the news service for the purpose of profiting on the resulting stock increase, one of the people said.

    According to the report, published online Jan. 14, Samsung had recently made an offer for BlackBerry, based in Waterloo, Ontario. The report, which said the two companies had held talks, cited a person familiar with the matter and documents seen by Reuters.

    Preliminary investigations of possible market manipulation frequently don’t lead to formal accusations. It isn’t clear whether any particular funds are in investigators’ sights and there is no indication that Reuters is a target of the investigation. A spokeswoman for Thomson Reuters Corp., the news service’s parent, declined to comment.

    News reports about possible takeovers frequently cause big moves in the companies’ stocks, giving shareholders the ability to make big, quick profits.

    BlackBerry shares, which had jumped almost 4% in the three hours before the story ran late in the trading day, soared another 30% on the report. They quickly gave back most of the gains after BlackBerry issued a statement that day that said it hadn’t held talks with Samsung for such a deal. The South Korean company later echoed that denial.

    BlackBerry shares closed Thursday up 2.1% at $10.09 and are about 4% above where the stock traded immediately before the story.

    Reuters has corrected the story to say that the talks it reported were held by representatives of BlackBerry and Samsung, and not the companies themselves, but has otherwise stood by it.

    Thomson Reuters competes with News Corp’s Dow Jones, publisher of The Wall Street Journal and Dow Jones Newswires, in news and other areas.

    Recent insider-trading cases by the U.S. Justice Department and SEC have taken aim at suspicious trading ahead of merger announcements and other market-moving news.

    Underscoring how difficult such cases can be to prove, in December a federal appeals court overturned two insider-trading convictions and ruled it isn’t always illegal to buy or sell stocks using inside information.

    Also, I can really see this headline being spun into a disaster, somehow putting blame on BB.

    Sorry, not saying that BB will be blamed by the investigation, but the perception in the media could be spun as such. People are lazy and just state things in a certain way without thinking of the consequences.

    More details on that SEC probe, from Reuters this time
    SEC probes Blackberry options trading ahead of Reuters report about Samsung talks | Business | Reuters

    By Charles Levinson

    NEW YORK (Reuters) - The U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission is investigating a January 14 spike in trading in BlackBerry Ltd options that took place hours before Reuters reported that Samsung Electronics Co was in talks to buy the Canadian smartphone maker, according to a person familiar with the investigation.

    One trade the SEC is looking at took place at 12:06 p.m. on that day, when there was a purchase of options with the rights to buy 200,000 shares of BlackBerry stock at a strike price of $10 a share, the person said.

    Later that afternoon, Reuters reported that Samsung had offered to buy BlackBerry for as much as $7.5 billion, valuing its stock at between $13.35 to $15.49 per share, a 38 percent to 60 percent premium over BlackBerry’s trading price at the time.

    BlackBerry’s stock, which closed on Jan. 13 at $9.71, shot up 30% on the news to close at $12.60 on Jan. 14, its biggest one-day gain in years.

    The call options, which expired on January 23, were purchased for 10 cents in the trade. They surged on the Reuters story to a high of $2.55. If the buyer had been able to sell the options at that high they would have been able to make a profit of $490,000 on a $20,000 investment. It is unclear, though, whether the buyer was able to sell the options at a profit.

    The SEC is investigating whether a source of information provided to Reuters bought Blackberry options, according to the person familiar with the investigation.

    Both companies later denied they were in talks and BlackBerry’s shares tumbled. Reuters subsequently corrected its story to make clear that the discussions were between advisors rather than company officials.

    There is no indication that Reuters is a target of the investigation. A spokeswoman for Thomson Reuters declined to comment.

    A spokesman for the SEC also declined to comment.

    PSDV OT ALERT!

    I have been lurking in the background here and reading some of the comments on the SEC/OSC investigation. I'll respond to this question before I tackle the big one! PSDV wasn't about earnings this quarter, they will start to see some traction in EPS next quarter but the real test is when they launch in the US at/near the end of March/2015. If you listen to the CEO of PSDV, he is very clear about the potential for this launch, he sees 270,000 patients at a $ 8.500/treatment, and as you can see, the numbers are strong. Those 270,000 patients are the ones that will benefit from the DME treatment (in other words, the 270,000 are from the 540,000 DME pool). And, if you do the math, the revenue could be extremely strong, that alone is a good reason to hold the stock. Then he talked about fast tracking and arthritis treatment with a prolonged injection delivery system for bad knees. This is a huge market. There are several other strong comments in the question period after the financial details so please take the time to listen very carefully to the questions and answers, they are very revealing. We are one or two quarters away from some very exciting news.

    When I get another chance, I'll talk about the OSC/SEC investigation.

    So sad that these are the types of companies we trust our data with! There needs to be investigations by the government when stuff like this happens as its citizens are put at risk. If the audit (maybe preemptive too) reveals malpractice then heads must roll. They investigate stock trading, food handling at restaurants, etc so why not our right of privacy and security and a company's responsibility to provide it.

    Two ways to go in that interview. Either laugh at them and walk out knowing you don't wanna be stuck working in that cluster f*ck. Or offer to re architect the infrastructure at a high consultant rate. Lol.
