    Is Apple Teaming With BlackBerry On Driverless Car Research? | Benzinga

    Here are the two addresses:
    Apple -- 411 Legget Drive, Kanata, Ontario, K2K 3C9.
    QNX -- 1001 Farrar Rd, Kanata, ON K2K 0B3.

    Check out your favourite online map. Google Maps says the distance between the two buildings is 0.4 miles (650 metres), or an 8 minute walk. But check Google Earth: there's a walking/bicycle path across a ditch that shortens the distance to a mere 150 yards.

    Is this a mere coincidence? You decide.
    Interestingly enough, there's another company at that address called Dragonwave (DRWI DWI.TO) which could help in the smart car field.

    Additionally, some publications are suggesting Apple's proximity to BlackBerry is less about cooperation and more about poaching.

    “Companies often buy offices near their competition to try and attract engineers,” writes the 9to5Mac blog. “Employees are more likely to move if they do not have to relocate. It is possible Apple is interested in QNX automotive talent, especially as it relates to self-driving cars.” ......Apple’s proximity to BlackBerry’s QNX would be helpful — if indeed they are looking to poach staffers from the company.

    Then look at where that quoted statement comes from. lol It would be sacrilegious in their eyes for Apple to team with BB in any way, shape, or form.

    Because then QNX no longer has the talent it requires to lead and innovate. The same thing happened with BlackBerry smartphones - Apple poached their top talent and the company suffered from it. Retaining talent is a big issue.

    I agree but their are a lot of talents out there too and those engineers are not really after the money plus why would they give up something when they have been working so hard with their heart and souls.
    If the management is bad then ofcourse this is a perfect opportunity for them to jump ship and not far from the existing.

    Whether BlackBerry Ltd stays in hardware business will come to ?critical juncture? this year, analysts say | Financial Post

    The saga of BlackBerry Ltd.’s hardware business, which is losing subscribers and money, will come to a “critical juncture” sometime this year, say Scotia Capital Inc. analysts.

    In a research note Wednesday, they outlined a trio of strategic options the Waterloo, Ont.-based company can assess: exiting for a one-time cost of about US$100 million; license the BlackBerry brand or operating system to another equipment manufacturer; or, if the hardware segment reaches profitability, continue operations.

    Much of this depends on the sales success of BlackBerry’s Priv, a slider device that’s powered by Android.

    As it continues to evolve into an enterprise software provider, BlackBerry could spend up to US$1 billion to acquire companies during the next two years and still maintain a net cash balance of roughly US$500 million. It has purchased six companies in the past couple of years for US$866 million, the largest being the acquisition of former foe Good Technology Inc. for US$425 million in cash in November.

    BlackBerry is trying to fend off an onslaught of competitors in the software space, which has seen a wave of consolidation and is dealing with pricing pressures. “A key risk is management’s ability to execute and integrate acquisitions, which could negatively affect the firm’s financial performance,” the analysts said.

    Scotia suspects BlackBerry will explore additional cost-cutting initiatives, which it has already done by slashing its headcount to 6,225 employees, as of fiscal 2015, from a peak of 17,500 employees in 2011.

    What's with the twenty-six cents on SPHS in after hours? It closed at $2.27 in after hours! Something strange is happening on this play.

    Don't worry, it isn't me.
    I prefer to accumulate shares at their 52 week high, which hopefully this is the new base!
