    QNX at CES 2016

    Paving the way to an autonomous future

    Experts predict the self-driving car will dominate the road in as few as 10 years. Where is the automotive industry now? What innovations are coming on the way to a fully autonomous future?

    Visit QNX at the BlackBerry booth at CES 2016 to find out.

    There's no doubt the automotive industry is working towards an autonomous future – laying the groundwork for a time when self-driving cars are prevalent on the road. As we move in that direction, how will automated driving evolve? What technologies will be used? What capabilities will be available to consumers? What could the driver experience be like?

    Come to the BlackBerry booth (North Hall, #325) at 2016 CES to see our vision for the evolution of automated driving. You'll experience a fully integrated demo scenario, including our new technology concept vehicle based on the 2015 Toyota Highlander and the latest additions to our reference vehicle based on a Jeep Wrangler. Speak with our experts to learn how our software will help Tier 1s and automakers realize the autonomous future. We'll also showcase products from the BlackBerry IoT portfolio, including a not-to-be-missed new addition!

    Hey ZD,

    I don't know if you tried this app linked below but I think it's quite good . You can have more than one portfolio and it calculates everything. You can even add the balance in cash in each portfolio!

    My problem too...I like them both for different reasons...the Passport keyboard is awesome...Apps (Android) run so much better on the Priv...I've been using the Priv for a couple weeks now but holding guardedly onto my Passport...

    Thanks for the Portfolio Watcher tip...I like it...can you get it to show premarket quotes too?

    OT: PSDV

    I was a little surprised to see so much selling of PSDV on Tuesday after it shot to $5.80 right after opening, but it seems the quote below explains it.

    In other pSivida Corp. news, VP Leonard S. Ross sold 33,950 shares of the stock in a transaction on Tuesday, December 22nd. The stock was sold at an average price of $5.39, for a total value of $182,990.50. The transaction was disclosed in a filing with the Securities & Exchange Commission, which is accessible through the SEC website. Also, CEO Paul Ashton sold 120,000 shares of the stock in a transaction on Tuesday, December 22nd. The stock was sold at an average price of $5.39, for a total value of $646,800.00. Following the completion of the transaction, the chief executive officer now owns 440,741 shares of the company’s stock, valued at approximately $2,375,593.99.
    It appears this stock is being punished in pre-market trading today. Does anyone here see any reason for concern? I still see deep value here especially with yesterday's announcement to market Medidur.

    I am no expert, Mr BBRY. I would point out, though, that only 3,500 shares have been traded in PM.

    BlackBerry at CES 2016

    There have been few rumours as to what BlackBerry will reveal at CES, but new handsets are not expected.

    Instead, it is likely to focus on security and the Internet of Things, with a media briefing on those subjects announced for Wednesday, 6 January, starting at 11am PT (7pm GMT).

    We should give the G&M an award for the consistency with which they have supported a Canadian technology company trying to resurrect itself (thereby saving/creating jobs and maintaining/enriching some part of Canada's profile in the technology sector), which is no mean feat in itself. Thankfully, the G&M was there every step of the way with its unbiased, honest and professional reporting. What would we have done without them?

    Nice pop in HNU.TO this AM on winter storm. As expected, winter didn't completely disappear after all.

    Started scaling into ECA this AM. May be a bit early but they're making all the right moves, given the circumstances. They've still got approval to do another big shelf issuance before July, but I think they've now got adequate liquidity going forward without having to skrew the existing shareholders again...not sure if the dividend oriented shareholders are all done clearing yet, but it's all kept the SP deflated, IMO.

    Reuters Version:

    Culture shock - Samsung's mobile woes rooted in hardware legacy

    SINGAPORE/SEOUL | By Jeremy Wagstaff and Se Young Lee

    Culture shock - Samsung's mobile woes rooted in hardware legacy | Reuters


    Efforts to revive its once stellar smartphone fortunes may be doomed if Samsung Electronics cannot overcome its dominant engineering culture, according to serving and former executives and those who have dealt with the company.

    This culture, they say, has stymied many previous efforts to develop software and service platforms to support the smartphone business. In the past year several such services have closed down, at least one of them within a year of being launched.

    "There's a lot of distrust of top executives who can actually implement stuff that is more of a software and services offering," said one person familiar with the company's inner workings. "It's still 'we know how to sell boxes, we sell boxes'."

    Growth in handset sales is slowing as the smartphone market matures, and without its own distinctive software, content and services, Samsung has little to differentiate itself from other Android phone makers selling similar devices at lower prices.

    Samsung points to the launch of its mobile payments service, Samsung Pay, and its home control "internet of things" platform, SmartThings, as among the signs it has learned from its past.

    But this may not be enough.

    Interviews with former and serving employees paint a picture of confusion and overlap between competing divisions, where the short-term interests of promoting hardware trump long-term efforts to build platforms that would add value for customers and increase their loyalty to the brand.

    One said he only learned from someone outside the company that the hands-free app his team was updating for the upcoming Galaxy S4 launch had competition — from inside Samsung. For the manager, who has since left the company but declined to be identified because his present employer does business with Samsung, it was one of many examples of the low priority the hardware-minded company placed on software, which was treated as little more than a marketing tool inside the firm.

    "Samsung's upper management just inherently doesn't understand software," the former employee said. "They get hardware - in fact, they get hardware better than anyone else. But software is a completely different ballgame."

    As a result, critics say, initiatives involving software or services languish and often fail.

    Despite being pre-installed on Galaxy phones, Samsung's ChatON messaging service gained few adherents and closed without fanfare in March, while the Milk Video app, a high profile project run by newly hired U.S. executives, lasted a year, closing in November.


    SHRINKING MARGINS

    To be sure, Samsung's struggles are hardly unique - firms such as HTC Corp, Nokia and BlackBerry also failed in their attempt to develop viable platforms.

    And Samsung overcame a late start in smartphones and still remains the No.1 player: researcher TrendForce says it will this year ship about 100 million more than No. 2 Apple Inc.

    But former and serving executives say Samsung has failed to support innovation within the company, shrinking margins to stay competitive while losing ground to Chinese rivals such as Huawei Technologies Co Ltd.

    The mobile division's earnings contribution shrank to 39 percent of January-September operating profit, on track for the lowest contribution since 2010 and down sharply from 68 percent in 2013. Market share is expected to slip below 20 percent this year, from 24.6 percent in 2013, according to research firm Trefis.

    This decline helps explain why long-time mobile chief J.K. Shin recently ceded his day-to-day role to Dongjin Koh, another mobile division veteran.

    The firm credits Koh with helping develop its new Samsung Pay mobile payment service and the Knox security platform - two services Samsung says are helping turn things around.

    "Samsung has achieved notable progress in recent software and service offerings that have been well received by the market," the company said in a statement. "Including mobile payment service Samsung Pay, SmartThings IoT platform, mobile security solution Knox, and the Tizen operating system which powers our TVs and wearables."

    Samsung Pay is gaining traction in South Korea and the United States, while Tizen got a push from launch of new smartphones and appliances this year.

    The company also said its Silicon Valley-based Global Innovation Centre was seeking to tap into new software-related technologies developed outside the company.

    Some investors and analysts say worries of Samsung's decline are overstated, noting its dominance in memory chips and displays. Its foray into automotive components also has promise, analysts say.

    But this is unlikely to revive the explosive earnings growth its smartphones delivered at the beginning of the decade.

    What's needed, according to Chang Sea-jin, a business professor at Korea Advanced Institute of Science and Technology, is strong backing for a push into software and services from Samsung Group heir apparent Jay Y. Lee.

    "There are signs that Samsung is trying to change and the company is acknowledging its failures," said Chang. "The company is moving in the right direction, but there is a high probability this is too little, too late."
