    Cheesy analogy, I know. But never underestimate the underdog.

    Awesome! This is exactly what I wanted. Shows all these joker firms that they can't make up random stuff without consequences.

    BlackBerry Seeks U.S., Canadian Review of False Reports on Return Rates - MarketWatch


    WATERLOO, ONTARIO, Apr 12, 2013 (Marketwired via COMTEX) -- BlackBerry(R) /quotes/zigman/18534/quotes/nls/bbry BBRY -7.76% /quotes/zigman/18555 CA:BB -7.43% , a world leader in mobile communications, today said it would seek Securities and Exchange Commission and Ontario Securities Commission review of a false and misleading report about retail return rates for the Company's new BlackBerry Z10 smartphone.

    "Sales of the BlackBerry(R) Z10 are meeting expectations and the data we have collected from our retail and carrier partners demonstrates that customers are satisfied with their devices," said BlackBerry President and CEO Thorsten Heins. "Return rate statistics show that we are at or below our forecasts and right in line with the industry. To suggest otherwise is either a gross misreading of the data or a willful manipulation. Such a conclusion is absolutely without basis and BlackBerry will not leave it unchallenged."

    BlackBerry and Verizon Wireless, the largest U.S. carrier, on Thursday refuted claims from research and investment firm Detwiler Fenton that BlackBerry Z10 devices were being returned in unusually high numbers. Detwiler Fenton refused to make either its report to investors or its methodology available to BlackBerry, even after the Company said the firm's findings were "absolutely false."

    BlackBerry Chief Legal Officer Steve Zipperstein said: "These materially false and misleading comments about device return rates in the United States harm BlackBerry and our shareholders, and we call upon the appropriate authorities in Canada and the United States to conduct an immediate investigation. Everyone is entitled to their opinion about the merits of the many competing products in the smartphone industry, but when false statements of material fact are deliberately purveyed for the purpose of influencing the markets a red line has been crossed."

    Zipperstein said BlackBerry would present its formal request to U.S. and Canadian regulators in the next several days.

    Snowfall warning for Inverness County - south of Mabou issued

    Periods of snow at times heavy will develop late this evening and persist into Saturday.

    This is a warning that significant snowfall is expected or occurring in these regions. Monitor weather conditions..listen for updated statements.

    A low pressure system is forecast to develop southwest of Cape Cod this evening and track south of Nova Scotia on Saturday. Rain changing to snow and ice pellets are forecast to begin over southwestern regions of the province early this evening and will push northward tonight to affect the rest of Nova Scotia by Saturday morning. A few hours of freezing rain is expected to be mixed with the ice pellets after midnight for southwestern sections. Snowfall amounts of 10-15 centimetres are expected tonight and Saturday over Northern Nova Scotia and Cape Breton associated with this system. A winter storm watch has been issued for Central Nova Scotia where snowfall amounts could possibly reach snowfall warning criteria therefore the public is advised to monitor future forecasts and warnings as warnings may be required.

    There is away some luck involved! The day the interest rate goes up even the smallest amount will be a very dark day for the entire market! Beware
    It won't be going up anytime soon. The smoke and mirrors from the Fed can only go so far. They know the so-called turnaround is a sham, there's no way that they would hike interest rates just to pretend even more.

    Very pleased to see BBRY's stand today against the manipulators however the twitter feed on Z10 returns in the last 24 hours has been like a tsunami!

    Slowly, very slowly, the tide is starting to turn round now on twitter. Wonder if the lowlifes will think twice next time? They'll probably come up with a new strategy.

    Almost a million trade in PM. I hope this is a good sign.

    I have a feeling that Detwiler Fenton was an intended sacrifice by the shorters.

    I hope TH rips him apart more than expected.

    No snow here.... we get the freezing rain. Supposed to get "wet snow" later to provide a nice coating on that layer of ice.

    All we need now is for the real media to pick up on this story and bring the manipulation to light. The regular news media could not comment on the manipulation until Blackberry took the gloves off. All the financial people at CBC, CNN, CTV, CBS etc. know this stuff goes on but they can't talk about it until something like this happens, now they can make a story out of it.. This might reduce some of the rumours in the future.

    All this could be true. I'd be a little concerned that they did it to profit and make money on the options they sold and bought. If so, they need 1 more day of tamping it down to make sure they profit. I don't think they can keep it all the way down, but if they can keep it under $14 they will have succeeded.... Hopefully the plan backfires and we hit 14 and then 15.

    They may report BBRY asking for the investigation and then again when the SEC announce sit is investigating it, but the big coverage will come when they arrest a few people and make them do the perp walk into the Courthouse. Love seeing that video if it happens.
