    At the Priv launch they said it would have the biggest marketing budget for a blackberry device in quite some time. I think they were selling well enough (not a huge weekly build number being churned out but enough) that they cut back on their marketing spend plan. The only marketing I've seen are significant Priv screen time at ACC events and the US political debates priv logo on screen.

    Google Also Has Been Ordered to Help Unlock Phones, Records Show - WSJ

    Advocacy group finds 63 cases where government sought orders to have phones opened under 1789 law

    March 30, 2016 9:00 a.m. ET

    WASHINGTONGoogle has been repeatedly ordered to help federal agents open cellphones, according to court records in seven states that show Apple Inc. isnt the only company facing government demands at the center of a fierce debate over privacy and security.

    The American Civil Liberties Union found 63 instances where the government sought a court order under a 1789 law called the All Writs Act to compel Apple and Google to help them access data on locked phones.

    The outcome of those cases arent clear. However, federal prosecutors have said until late last year, when Apple began resisting such efforts, it was routine for judges to approve such requests from federal prosecutors. And those requests arent a new phenomenonthe cases stretch back to 2008.

    Details of the cases come days after the Justice Department announced it cracked into a terrorists cellphone, ending a high-profile court battle over whether Apple can be forced by a court to help the Federal Bureau of Investigation bypass the phones passcode security system.

    The overall numbers arent surprising, since prosecutors have previously said Apple provided assistance in such cases more than 70 times. Most, but not all, of the 63 cases identified by the ACLU involve Apple. But the figures offer the first accounting of how the government has also sought such orders for Google to help investigators pull data off locked smartphones, typically by having the company reset the devices passwords.

    We carefully scrutinize subpoenas and court orders to make sure they meet both the letter and spirit of the law, a Google spokesman said. However, weve never received an All Writs Act order like the one Apple recently fought that demands we build new tools that actively compromise our products security.... We would strongly object to such an order.

    The Justice Department has defended the practice of getting court orders to compel assistance from technology companies as a routine and necessary part of law enforcement work when there is no other way for agents to access a suspects phone that might hold important criminal evidence. Privacy groups argue the government is misusing an outdated law to claim authority not granted by Congress.

    A court filing last month from Apple indicated there were at least a dozen active cases in which the Justice Department was pursuing similar orders involving Apple.

    In one of the Google cases, a 2015 drug investigation in California, prosecutors got a court order compelling Google to provide assistance in getting data from an Alcatel cellphone and a Kyocera cellphone, both of which were using Googles Android operating system, according to court records.

    The ACLU found Google was also the subject of All Writs Act cases in Alabama, New Mexico, North Carolina, North Dakota, Oregon and South Dakota.

    Some of the court records show judges signed court orders compelling Google to help investigators, though the records dont indicate whether Google complied. In one such case, a 2015 child pornography investigation in Sacramento, Calif., Google was ordered to reset the password of a Samsung telephone so investigators could search its contents. Other court dockets are unclear as to the outcome of the prosecutors request.

    The technical issues are different for Alphabet Inc.s Google than for Apple, partly because Google makes the Android cellphone operating system, but that system runs on phones manufactured by others, while Apple makes both phones and their operating software.

    The Google cases involve investigations by the FBI, Secret Service, Homeland Security Department, Drug Enforcement Administration and Bureau of Land Management.

    Apples disputed with the Justice Department in the terrorism case centered on the work phone of Syed Rizwan Farook, who along with his wife killed 14 people and injured 22 others in a Dec. 2 attack on a holiday party of San Bernardino, Calif., county employees.

    Just as the two sides were due to face off in court last week, federal officials said they had found a new potential technique to get data from the phone without Apples help. On Monday, the Justice Department announced the method had worked and they were dropping the case against Apple.

    The larger legal issue of privacy and security in the digital age remain unresolved, awaiting the next courtroom standoff on the issue. The focus of that fight may now shift to Brooklyn, N.Y., where a federal magistrate judge recently ruled that the Justice Department didnt have the legal authority to force Apple to help them open an iPhone seized in a drug case.

    The Justice Department has asked a higher judge to review that finding, and more court filings are expected in that case in coming weeks.

    What time did the C-S report actually become public I wonder? Didn't do any damage at all really. They've had that $6 target for about 3 years I think. I'd love to see a squeeze. Of course these analysts will keep being peeved that BB continues to bring revs from IP deals that they can't forecast for. I know Chen lumped in IP so he could possibly meet the 500M target and without the IP reve he would fail. For 2017 it might be time to separate IP from Software ....the crutch there being that software 2017Q vs 2016Q could go negative so that probably won't happen.

    They have signed some test contracts for Radar Asset Tracking.....I hope those tests are bringing in some rev for Q4.

    If BBRY finally throws in the towel on hardware, I think the stock might bounce initially but eventually people will conclude that BBRY's new "business" selling software is not such a great business. It would be like during the financial crisis if GM said, "OK, we're losing money selling cars so we are going to start focusing on our profitable auto financing subsidiary."

    BBRY has just tried to buy revenue by purchasing startups. Chen has been a huge disappointment. It was always about marketing. The failures back to Heins and before Heins was all about marketing. Marketing and advertising which is a subset of marketing. Chen (and the BOD) were not shrewd and brave enough to even try to give BB10 a chance. The Z30 and Passport could have sold if people knew they existed.

    To be fair, no amount of marketing could've helped BlackBerry. Carriers worldwide didn't want to sell or carry BlackBerry. To them, BlackBerry was "the past" and iPhone/Android was "the future." That's how they perceived it and that was their truth. When BlackBerry retreated to the "corporate market" that made carriers' lives even easier. Carriers didn't need to promote BlackBerry at all. It was a viscous cycle down the drain for BlackBerry. You can't buy what carriers don't want to sell. And in the US, BlackBerry can't sell CDMA unless Verizon/Sprint wanted to carry it. And they didn't. That's about half the US market alone?

    Hi Spiller !!

    I have a lot on my plate and really haven't been following the market. I try to keep up with the CB messages on this board but even that can be difficult. Its just as well as watching BBRY without news is not fun! I have the April 01's for an $ 8.00 strike and nothing else so far. I still haven't lifted my calls against some of my stock either but when we dipped back towards the 50-dma, I bought the stock. The net of it is that I have my largest position going into earnings this Q. I hope to be home for the final two hours of trade tomorrow and then Friday morning I'm in a meeting from 10:00 AM until noon. Just one more chance for me to do something special so tomorrow I will be looking at adding before the close. Good luck everyone!

    OP nov-2011 :
    While I think it can't really hurt me and I may have a delicious surprise in,say, 5 years, I'm not doing this in a speculative vision, just a support action.
    Now, let's pretend my "say" was a fixed date; just give 8 month before I start even considering throwing the towel. BTW, due to currency rates variation and diverse acquisitions (never sold) this is my current situation, which is by no mean close to a loss of 60%. If such was the case, I'd probably had a different behavior. But I'm not sure this type of comparison has a sense, TBH.

    For once, I won't hide the value numbers, just to be transparent enough and remind everybody that we're (for most) here in a "fan" context with a supportive position and we're not betting our lives neither than our retreat on it.

    BlackBerry Radar to Drive Higher Profits for the Trucking Industry
    2016-03-31 09:02:00 AM ET (Marketwired)
    * *
    * *
    Mid-America Trucking Show - Today, at the 2016 Mid-America Trucking Show, BlackBerry Limited (NASDAQ: BBRY) (TSX: BB) unveiled BlackBerry Radar(TM), a new end-to-end asset tracking system for trucking companies and private fleet operators. With BlackBerry Radar, customers can optimize utilization of their trailers and shipping containers, improve on-time delivery, reduce theft, and generate more revenue from each trailer, without having to invest in costly IT infrastructure. BlackBerry Radar provides everything needed to track highly mobile assets, including a self-powered tracking device, an Internet of Things (IoT) platform with cloud-based applications, world-class security, and visual reports that make it easy to pinpoint the location and status of each asset.

    The freight transportation industry is constantly striving to boost productivity and efficiency in order to reduce operational costs. However, existing tracking solutions, with their complex user interfaces and infrequent data updates, make it difficult to maximize asset utilization and stop theft. BlackBerry Radar solves this problem by providing timely, actionable information in a solution that is easy to deploy, use, and maintain.

    The BlackBerry Radar tracking device takes only minutes to install and generates rich, frequently updated information that enables operations managers, load planners, and dispatchers to make the most profitable decisions for their organizations. For example, the device can send real-time alerts whenever a trailer has crossed a user-defined geofence or when a trailer door has opened or closed. It also monitors GPS location, temperature, humidity, and the presence of cargo. To access this data, customers simply log in to BlackBerry Radar's secure online portal - from there, they can interact with elegant visualizations and one-click reports that show where their assets are, and what is happening to them.

    "BlackBerry Radar is fully integrated and provisioned, so customers can hit the ground running. Within minutes of installing our tracking device, users can access timely information on their assets to help make agile decisions that can dramatically improve an organization's profitability," said Derek Kuhn, Senior Vice President, BlackBerry IoT. "And because BlackBerry Radar is cloud-based, it offers the ultimate in convenience. All you need is a smartphone, tablet, or computer equipped with a web browser, and you can access information for real-time decision-making - wherever you are, and whenever you need it."

    BlackBerry Radar encrypts all transmitted data; it also authenticates the device and cloud endpoints to ensure a high level of security and privacy between users and the service. Moreover, fine-grained permissions allow other participants in the supply chain to access relevant data and improve productivity. For instance, as a trailer approaches a warehouse, BlackBerry Radar can issue a notification, enabling warehouse staff to prepare for the incoming shipment and unload the trailer more quickly.

    BlackBerry Radar also provides an extensible architecture and rich application programming interfaces (APIs) to help developers create innovative applications for the freight industry. These applications will help create a vibrant ecosystem to address a multitude of use cases and offer complementary solutions that benefit the industry.

    "The expansion of IoT solutions is a key catalyst in the current transformation of the global freight shipping market, the importance of which has not been seen since the worldwide embrace of intermodal containers. The ever-improving capabilities and costs of connected sensor systems have made tracking the precise location of assets, real-time monitoring of their detailed physical condition, and associated data analytics the basis of a new gold standard for the industry. BlackBerry Radar's cloud platform and innovative tracking device support these needs with a global end-to-end solution that leverages BlackBerry's market-leading security, low-power solutions, and knowledge of cloud-based platforms," said Andy Castonguay, Principal Analyst, Machina Research. "From a user standpoint, the end-to-end service design critically removes much of the complexity associated with the implementation and usage of IoT solutions that are common in today's market."

    BlackBerry is a member of the National Private Truck Council, a U.S. trade association devoted to the interests of the private corporate trucking fleet industry and its professional practitioners.

    Availability

    Select trucking companies and private fleet operators are currently participating in a customer pilot program for BlackBerry Radar. The solution is scheduled for general availability in Summer 2016.

    For inquiries about BlackBerry Radar, email radar@blackberry.com. For more information on the BlackBerry IoT Platform, visit blackberry.com/internet-of-things.

    Demonstration at the Mid-America Trucking Show

    BlackBerry is demonstrating the BlackBerry Radar Asset Tracking System this week at the Mid-America Trucking Show, North Wing, Booth 16228. An interactive command center displays the location and status of shipping containers, and allows the user to set custom alerts for a variety of conditions, such as when a container crosses a geofence, when a door opens or closes, or when the container's interior exceeds a specified temperature.
