    I sold some of my low $7 shares into the strength as a pure trade...I can't help but think the slightest bit of bad news will have us back to low 7s again, at which point, I'll buy back. I don't see it getting over 7.5$ in the short term before ER

    Very curious how Ford thinks about this vs the OEM deal they made with BlackBerry on using QNX, and BlackBerry's own autonomous driving initiative.

    Media getting more positive

    BlackBerry Ltd (BBRY) Stock Worth $8 a Share

    The stock moved a bit over 4% on the week. Still, BBRY's march away from hardware devices and towards software sales will pay off. And with potential earnings growth of 31.6% next year (per Finviz ), BBRY may make a run back to $8 a share.
    In China, WeChat dominates the market. Alphabet Inc (NASDAQ: GOOGL , NASDAQ: GOOG ) supports Hangouts while Microsoft Corporation (NASDAQ: MSFT ) offers Skype for consumers and for businesses. BBM's voice, video and messaging is not a unique offering. Only its top level of security may set the SDK apart from the others.
    As the company reports positive cash flow quarter after quarter, the stock will move towards the $8 price target.

    Wouldn't be too surprised if BlackBerry bought ISARA or another company like it in the near future. In fact, I hope they do.

    Volkswagen and Mobileye have signed an agreement to see Mobileye’s Road Experience Management (REM) mapping service integrated into VW-brand vehicles starting in 2018. The service from provider Mobileye crowdsources real-time road condition reports from vehicles equipped with the product to help provide intelligent fleet features for use in autonomous vehicles, making sure networked smart cars can better navigate real roads.

    In one presentation I saw on Mobileye, they were doing much like most mapping companies do now with standard real-time navigation... basically traffic patterns and slowdowns. But too they plan have cameras and sensors that will "map" the roadways... lane markers (solid or passing), roadway widths, construction changes, driveways or off/on ramps, debri in roadway - things that might could be used by other autonomous vehicle that travel that same roadway minutes or hours later.

    Makes you wonder what else these Google Cars are recording for their future plans..... everytime I check my house in Google Maps they have driven by it again, with better resolution on the images and images closer together. And I live out of town on a cul de sac with only a few homes on it.

    OT from the Security file. Eventually will hit the big jackpot and is expected to be painful:

    New wave of cyberattacks against global banks linked to Lazarus cybercrime group | ZDNet
    "The hacking gang, active since 2009, has been involved in a number of aggressive cyberattacks against financial institutions, including the theft of $81m from the Bangladesh Bank's US Federal Reserve. Banks in Poland and the United States are most targeted by Lazarus in this attack, which also hit a number of banks in Central and South America.
    The Lazarus gang has also been linked to a Trojan attack on Sony Pictures Entertainment's internal network. Naturally, acting as large depositories of both money and financial data, banks are a lucrative target for hackers and therefore constantly face persistent and sophisticated cyberattacks, with institutions across the globe continually having their defences tested."

    Law360, New York (February 13, 2017, 5:14 PM EST) -- BlackBerry Corp. on Friday asked a New York bankruptcy court to lift the stay on its patent suit against Avaya Inc., claiming that the company is continuing to sell the allegedly infringing products.

    BlackBerry argued that allowing the suit against its bankrupt competitor to go forward would not interfere with the bankruptcy proceedings and is needed to stop Avaya’s continued infringement.

    “Every day that the debtor continues to import, market and sell infringing products is another day the debtor is violating the patent laws, and the only reason why BlackBerry is currently unable to take action to stop it is by virtue of the automatic stay,” BlackBerry said in its filings. “The automatic stay is not a shield against illegal activity.”

    Santa Clara, California-based Avaya filed for Chapter 11 protection in January, six months after BlackBerry*filed a suit*alleging that Avaya is using BlackBerry's proprietary technology in multiple commercial products and services, including unified communications products and software, networking products like switches and routers, communication servers and client software, telepresence systems, softphones and deskphones, and mobile software.

    The patents BlackBerry is asserting cover a variety of technological methods and were issued to BlackBerry between 2008 and February 2015, with filing applications that go back as far as 1998.

    In its filing, BlackBerry claimed that Avaya is continuing to sell the allegedly infringing products, and as a result an immediate order to allow the case to proceed is needed.

    “If such order does not become immediately effective, debtor could take actions that would prejudice BlackBerry with respect to the patents being litigated in the patent infringement case,” BlackBerry said. “Moreover, BlackBerry only has limited time to recover its R&D investments that led to the patents it is asserting (as the patents have a limited lifetime), and continued acts of infringement by debtor may lead others to infringe BlackBerry’s patents.”

    BlackBerry argued that multiple bankruptcy courts have allowed intellectual property suits against bankrupt companies to go forward and that lifting the stay would simplify the bankruptcy proceedings by removing any patent issues from consideration.

    “Once reduced to judgment, all this court would be required to do is treat it as any other liquidated claim,” BlackBerry said.

    Counsel for BlackBerry and Avaya did not immediately respond to requests for comment Monday.

    The patents-in-suit are U.S. Patent Numbers 9,143,801; 8,964,849; 8,116,739; 8,886,212; 8,688,439; 7,440,561; 8,554,218; and 7,372,961.

    BlackBerry Limited and BlackBerry Corporation are represented by Kevin P.B. Johnson, Victoria Maroulis, Eric Winston and Kate Scherling of Quinn Emanuel Urquhart & Sullivan LLP.

    Avaya is represented by James H.M. Sprayregen, Jonathan S. Henes, Patrick J. Nash Jr., Ryan Preston Dahl and Bradley Thomas Giordano of Kirkland & Ellis LLP.

    The case is In re: Avaya Inc. et al., case number 17-10089, in the United States Bankruptcy Court for the Southern District of New York.

    The patent case is BlackBerry Limited et al. v. Avaya Inc., case number 3:16-cv-02185, in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Texas.

    BlackBerry Files Patent-Infringement Suit Against Nokia
    BlackBerry Ltd. filed a patent-infringement lawsuit against Nokia Oyj, demanding royalties on the Finnish company’s mobile network products that use an industry wide technology standard.
    Nokia’s products including its Flexi Multiradio base stations, radio network controllers and Liquid Radio software are using technology covered by as many as 11 patents, BlackBerry said in a complaint filed Tuesday in federal court in Wilmington, Delaware.

    Law360, San Francisco (February 14, 2017, 5:37 PM EST) -- BlackBerry Ltd. launched an infringement suit against Nokia Corp. in Delaware federal court Tuesday for allegedly using 11 of BlackBerry's patents that describe proprietary technology underlying third- and fourth-generation mobile communication.

    Nokia was “willfully blind” to BlackBerry’s patents and egregiously used BlackBerry’s patented technology in Nokia’s wireless computer network Flexi line products and an accompanying software suite, according to the suit. The Canadian tech giant also accuses Nokia of encouraging consumers and mobile service providers like AT&T Inc. and T-Mobile US Inc. to infringe BlackBerry’s long-term evolution and universal terrestrial radio access network technologies.

    “Nokia encourages and instructs customers, [including] mobile service providers such as T-Mobile and AT&T, to purchase, deploy and use infringing products to develop and operate their LTE networks and UMTS networks,” BlackBerry says.

    The 11 patents in suit were issued as late as 2014 and describe specific methods and systems of improving 3G and 4G communications. They do that by detecting the number of transmit antennas in a wireless network base station, combining space-time coding to improve efficiency, and offering services unavailable through networks, among other things.

    According to the suit, many of the patents are continuations of patent applications filed in the early 2000s, and many include claims that cover features of the LTE and universal mobile telecommunications system standards set by standard-setting organizations.

    The suit claims that Nokia Siemens Networks, which Nokia Group owns, had become aware of BlackBerry’s patents no later than July 2009, during an asset sale agreement with Nortel Networks Corp. At the time, NSN sought to license or acquire Nortel patents and patent applications. But Nortel later sold those assets during its 2011 bankruptcy proceedings to BlackBerry.

    During Nortel's bankruptcy, Nortel sought to sell its IP assets, releasing it from its SSO commitments, but Nokia objected, arguing that Nokia and other industry members relied on its SSO commitment, the suit says.

    BlackBerry further alleges that Nokia also became aware of BlackBerry’s patents during a prosecution of its own patents, when an international search report cited the patents-in-suit.

    Additionally, BlackBerry and its predecessor, Research In Motion Ltd., have notified the European Telecommunications Standards Institute — an industry SSO — multiple times since 2010 that BlackBerry's patents may become essential to LTE and UTRAN standards.

    The suit asks the court to find that Nokia infringed the 11 patents and reward BlackBerry royalties, pre- and post-judgment interest, attorneys' fees, and enhanced damages for the “egregious infringement.”

    The suit against Nokia is the latest front in BlackBerry’s recent push to assert patent rights against multiple tech companies. Earlier this month BlackBerry Corp. asked a New York bankruptcy court to lift the stay on its patent suit against Avaya Inc., claiming that the company is continuing to sell the allegedly infringing products.

    A Nokia spokesperson said Tuesday that the company is aware of Tuesday's complaint. Nokia will study the claims and take whatever steps are necessary to defend its rights, the spokesperson said.

    A representative for BlackBerry declined to comment Tuesday.

    The patents-in-suit are U.S. Patent Numbers 6,996,418; 8,254,246; 8,494,090; 7,529,305; 8,861,433; 9,426,697; 9,253,772; 8,897,192; 9,125,202; 8,243,683; and 8,644,829.

    BlackBerry is represented by John G. Day and Andrew C. Mayo of Ashby & Geddes PA and Vincent J. Belusko, Hector G. Gallegos, James P. Bennett, Bradley S. Lui, Daniel P. Muino and Jayson L. Cohen of Morrison & Foerster LLP.

    Counsel information for Nokia was not available Tuesday.

    The case is BlackBerry Ltd. v. Nokia Corp. et al., case number 1:17-cv-00155, in the U.S. District Court for the District of Delaware.

    So I guess those companies don't want to make deals with BlackBerry. I hope they get hefty penalty.
