    Nice bounce today for BBerry stock. This might be a positive reaction to the upcoming earnings that got leaked to the insiders. Let's hope that's true and we get out of this negative funk.

    The 26th will tell the tale !
    CrowdStrike too might have some giving BlackBerry a second look.

    What does it tell you if a company comes out of the gate and on its first day has surpased blackberry s market cap 3 fold. It tells me Wall street has no faith in management, no faith in direction and to many tricks have been observed. They don't need to write about it, they just ignore you and everyone affiliated to you.

    Maybe it's time you follow your opinion and invest in that company you're referring to abwan11, and leave us mere mortals here in our sorrows.

    I thought Lazaridis and Watsa had enough shares between them to prevent such an action. They would need to hold in excess of 40% of the shares to stave off a hostile.

    I’m pretty sure Lazaridis divested shares when 2013 buyout attempt failed.

    You're right of course! Of all the things I've lost I miss my mind the most.

    From the article; "However, with Huawei working on its own operating system, it could bring about a third player to the smartphone OS war, which is desperately needed."

    They should compare notes with Blackberry on the viability of a third OS/ecosystem and how they were aggressively shunned from the market by Apple and Google. However, they do have the advantage of a huge domestic market that is xenophobic to a fault and would love to have a "real" Chinese phone. No matter that the central government is listening in to all your conversations for any signs of "cultural immorality".

    I can only add that our current duopoly was gladly earned by every user who drank the steady stream of Kool Aid put out by the two tech giants and not should feel any distress when device choice is diminished while hardware and service prices keep rising.

    Enjoy, you deserve everything you get !

    Have read several articles recently about Cylance Execs who have left since BlackBerry announced their purchase and now these execs are working at competing startups doing the same work.

    This happens all the time. I know, I did just that... which is why this and similar purchases are very difficult and often don't work out...

    OT general information on security immunity of quantum computers, where the Canadian Space Agency works jointly with University of Waterloo Institute of Quantum Computing. I presume that Mike Lazarius (former co-head of BB) and Steve MacLean (former head of CSA) at the Institute are involved?
