    Sorry I didn't phrase that as well I I should have. The breach had nothing to do with BES. Her emails were sent from a private account and the emails were stored on a private server that was maintained by Clinton. The server/account was not a secured state department server/account and as she was transmitting information that should have been marked as classified Secret and weren't. The gist of everything is that official business was done on unofficial channels that don't meet with policy mandates for transmitting classified information.

    Like I said I haven't kept up with it but I thought there were early reports that what she did wasn't against State Department policy (for reasons I didnt catch). So if that is still true, then the State Department's IT department is just as much, if not more responsible than Clinton, as they were the one's who authorized it.

    Then again, in light of the Office of Personnel Management breach, Secretary Clinton's emails may have been the only emails the hackers didn't get! LOL (this last statement was purely said in jest!).

    Looks like the Curved Screen is now making its way to the mass manufacturers... which may explain why the BB rumored device has it ?

    (possibly not as a result of the Samsung Partnership or some other screen manufacturer ?? )

    Curved Screen, OLED , display in the upcoming LG... just like the rumour specs of the Venice.



    Will the G Edge be LG's answer to the Galaxy S6 Edge?

    Will the G Edge be LGs answer to Samsungs Galaxy S6 Edge?
    by: Rob Triggs

    Earlier in the week, LG trademarked a number of Edge-related names, prompting rumors that the company could be preparing to launch a curved display smartphone that could rival the stylish looking Galaxy S6 Edge and S6 Edge+ from Samsung. There arent any remotely official looking details about such a device floating around right now, but with a second, even more premium smartphone on the way from LG later this year, anticipation is high that LG may have something planned.

    What we do know is that LG has the right technology for such a device. The company has already released a handful of smartphones based on flexible display technology, which make use of both LCD and OLED panels types. OLED being the technological basis for Samsungs curved active-matrix OLED (AMOLED) display in its Edge products.

    The BBRY Café.  [Formerly: I support BBRY and I buy shares]-lg-chem-plastic-based-truly-flexible-oled-light-panel-840x326.jpg

    However, the subtly curved display of the G4 and LGs other mid-range products this year is based on its LCD technology, which is not particularly bendable. The G Flex range is based on LGs P-OLED technology which is far more flexible, as can been seen by the slight flexibility lent to these phones. LGs OLED technology is going to be the key if the company wants to produce more flexible phones in the future. However, the Flex phones have been much smaller releases for the company. We are yet to see a truly mainstream mobile product based on flexible OLED technology from LG.

    The BBRY Café.  [Formerly: I support BBRY and I buy shares]-lg-g-flex-2-unboxing-aa-13-31-710x399.jpg

    Part of this is down to LGs production setup. LCD has long been the backbone of LG Displays mobile products, but the company has been transitioning to accommodate additional OLED production. This week, LG Display confirmed that it is to invest an additional $8.5 billion into development of next-generation OLED displays, for use in products ranging from TVs to flexible mobile electronics. The company is also bolstering flexible OLED production with a $0.91 billion investment into its 6th generation production technique, but these investments are going to take years to mature.

    The other half of the battle is display quality, resolution and cost of production. Samsung has long been in the mobile AMOLED game, which has given the company plenty of time to improve its technology. LGs latest P-OLED display in the G Flex 2 comes in at a lower 1080p resolution than the QHD panel found in Samsungs latest phones. A QHD smartphone OLED panel is probably on the way from LG, but the company hasnt announced anything yet.

    The big upside with LGs OLED technology is that it has proven to be extremely flexible and versatile. Recently the company showcased a selection of wallpaper TVs which are not only about as thin as a credit card, but also bendable for easy mounting. LG also has a selection of concave and convex TV designs, any of which could be adapted for mobile if needed.

    The company can already produce these panels in a variety of sizes, but there isnt a clear use case for this technology in a mobile product. Other flexible components, such as circuits and batteries, are not as advanced and are overly expensive at the moment, leaving us some years short from a truly bendable portable computer. LGs curved mobile products are pretty much the most that can be done right now, although an Edge-type design is another possibility.

    Plastic-OLED also offers a cost advantage over more complex LCD circuitry and pixel designs. The use of plastic, which enables a wide variety of flexibility, is also cheaper than the typical glass alternative for OLED displays. Although LG may not have been first with the technology, the company may be able to compete with a new slimmer design and a lower price point.

    The mysterious dual-Edge LG prototype (below) is arguably our best look at what a future G Edge smartphone may look like, which would go directly up against Samsungs design. However, the prototype apparently only had a resolution of 1280720 pixels and a peak brightness of just 300 nits, well behind Samsungs equivalent design. Although, LG has no doubt improved its technology since then.

    The BlackBerry Venice also sports a similar look and is rumored to have a QHD resolution, but we dont know who is manufacturing the display, it could be either LG or Samsung.


    The BBRY Café.  [Formerly: I support BBRY and I buy shares]-curved-displays-hot-840x403.jpg

    Perhaps, the G Edge, if or whenever it appears, will be LGs first major flagship to make use of the companys advanced OLED panels, but its not quite clear how close the company will be able to get to Samsungs industry leading display technology with a first generation Edge product. A major global launch could also be some distance away, depending on how LG prioritises its OLED production capabilities. However, LG is betting big on a future in OLED and Im sure we will see some exciting mobile products in the not too distant future.

    Speaking of "EDGE" screen...

    LG Messes With Samsung, Files Trademark For Several 'Edge' Phrases : BIZ TECH : Tech Times

    LG Messes With Samsung, Files Trademark For Several 'Edge' Phrases

    By Alexandra Burlacu, Tech Times | August 21, 8:03 AM

    LG has apparently gone on a trademarking spree for names containing the "Edge" moniker, potentially trying to mess up Samsung's game.

    Samsung already has several "Edge" devices on the market, with the term "Edge" used to denote a special screen design with an edge curvature that displays notifications.

    The first device to boast this technology was the Samsung Galaxy Note Edge, which came with the aforementioned curvature on one side of the display. Samsung then took things to the next level with the Galaxy S6 Edge, which sports a dual-edge display, i.e. it's curved on both sides. The company just released its latest Edge device as the Galaxy S6 Edge+ and it likely has more plans for its Edge display technology in the future.

    While the Galaxy Note Edge was successful, but not exactly a smashing hit, the Galaxy S6 Edge raised more interest due to its sleek design and dual-edge functionality. The latest Galaxy S6 Edge+ is expected to be quite popular as well, boasting the same design language and dual-edge functionality of the regular S6 Edge. If some recent trademarks are any indication, however, Samsung may soon have some competition on the Edge market.

    Fellow South Korean company LG may have a plan to steal Samsung's thunder, seeking to get an edge with trademarks filed at the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO). As Phandroid reports, LG applied for trademarks for a number of phrases containing the "Edge" term, including Super Edge, Dual Edge, Dual Side Edge, Upper Edge, Side Edge, Double Edge, G Edge and Two Edge.

    Leaving aside the trolling theory, the trademarks could suggest some plans for LG to join the Edge party with such curved smartphones of its own. LG already has curved handsets, but with a different curvature and a different approach. Samsung's curved Edge display technology offers various functionality and LG could be looking to offer something similar.

    The trademark filings don't reveal much, but they do note "smartphones" as one of the potential applications of the Edge names.

    It remains to be seen whether we'll get a new LG G Edge or LG Dual Edge anytime soon, but for now the company seems to be busy trademarking. LG offered no details on the matter just yet so it's tough to tell at this point just what the company plans to do with these trademarks, but one thing's for sure: it has Samsung in its sights.

    If he can get full google services on a BlackBerry Droid, with a pkb, he might have a money maker on his hands that will serve as a great stop gap till software ramps up

    It's all so interconnected, without a great reputation, BlackBerry is always uphill fighting.

    If they can Crack the code, the potential is unlimited

    Yep. That is part of what was 'brewing'. I think the other parts will be some cool accompanied Apps, big BES12 news, and a wild card that the new phone is perhaps made by LG(?).

    I was propagating from the beginning that the slider would be made by Samsung, but after the S6 Edge keyboard stunt, I am less sure. I would be jazzed to see LG in there....


    Safe weekend gents!

    None of those companies could make an android phone for Bbry while the runtime is still a 'going concern' on bb10 - although I guess they could if they do some deal to EOL it on the release of the device - maybe wouldn't need to remove it from older bb10 devices but not have it on newer ones.

    Yeah, juggling the guidelines that Google uses for Android is up in the air. What's interesting is the Java lawsuit worth billions between Oracle and Google. This alone could change all the rules of the Android game going forth.

    LG seems to be somewhat of a wildcard here because of their relatively new involvement with BlackBerry. The reason why I am questioning who the Slider build will be from now is because of the eye-poke that Samsung just gave to BlackBerry with that cheese keyboard release. It has to be more than a mere exercise of some patent that Samsung had in a file cabinet behind the Elvis LP's.

    Something else is brewing....

    My gut feeling is as follows:

    • BB10 is for corporations who need top-notch security - the runtime is stripped out of new phones and unsupported on existing ones - they expect volume to be low and stay low
    • BBA is for prosumers and corporation who need better security - is virtually stock android and the 'secret sauce' is an an implementation of blackberry blend similar to Knox. You try and root the phone or fiddle with the boot-loader and the container with all the container data wipes itself - they need volume to be higher because it cross-subsidies BB10 hardware.
