    ... I couldn't let New Years day slide by without stopping by 'The Thread' to say hi to all. With juggling businesses, kids and a mother-in-law suffering from dementia (that translates to little 'ol me apparently stealing her scissors, spoons, bed sheets, etc. on a daily basis), but it's all good and I feel blessed for the ability to at least laugh a bit about it.

    Thanks again to all that contribute and allow us to fly by for the last minute news on our prized BlackBerry. If it weren't for this thread, I wouldn't be here.

    PS - Still on my trusty Passport, and still holding.
    Cheers fellas!

    The IP personalities of 2016, part one - Blog - Intellectual Asset Management (IAM) - Maximising IP Value for Business

    Mark Kokes - It does not seem that long ago that BlackBerry was standing shoulder to shoulder with Google and others in decrying the patent privateer business model, as well as transfers from operating companies to patent assertion entities in general. Times change, though. After a difficult few years, 2016 saw Blackberry get very serious about the monetisation of its patent assets – whether that be through sale, assertion or licensing deal. At the heart of the new strategy is Mark Kokes, who was recruited in 2014 from InterTrust to be the company’s senior vice president of intellectual property, licensing & standards. Kokes does not court publicity and is well-known for keeping his cards close to his chest, but he was brought in to do a job and having taken a few months to survey the lie of the land is now well into the business of getting things done. The pressure to do so comes straight from the top, with CEO John Chen having identified IP licensing as one of the key planks of his revival strategy for the Canadian tech giant. Combine that with the fact that he has one of the most interesting portfolios in the communications space to play with and, whether he likes it or not, Kokes looks set to be making patent market news for years to come.

    BlackBerry QNX will unveil a Jaguar XJ concept car with a new digital cockpit design that combines the infotainment and instrument cluster functionality. It shows two operating systems running safely and securely on a single System-on-a-Chip (SoC) processor. BlackBerry QNX hypervisor software safely separates and isolates the infotainment system and graphics, meaning the infotainment system can safely re-start without affecting the instrument cluster. BlackBerry worked with Rightware Cluster UI to build the QNX Cluster graphics monitor that can detect failures in the safety system. The Jaguar XJ concept car also features BlackBerry's QNX® Acoustics Management Platform (AMP) for clear high-definition in-car communication, active noise control, and engine sound enhancement.
    Could this be an illustration?

    "The Snapdragon 820 whcih simultaneously handles both QNX and Android in a given car."
