    I want you to know that my credit cards are PAID IN FULL! I believe in America, just not our government. I would still pick the USA over any other country. I have worked hard and it has been VERY good to me.
    I am Canadian and also American (USA). Both are great countries. I feel blessed to have been educated and worked in these two great countries.

    Nah. That was the problem 5 years ago. The US is in a much darker place now. They're like the poor fool who runs up their credit cards and tries to cover payments of those with a credit line or worse again a HELOC.

    Trouble is a lot of the policy folks and especially the politicians don't understand any of the technicals and so they haven't a clue what to do.
    Sad part is, even if they knew what to do . . . . . they wouldn't have the political balls to do it!

    It's because Ottawa beat Washington last night to clinch a playoff spot...and the price of gas is down.

    Annoyingly, googling Q10 in the UK shows mostly headlines about porn viewing problems and nothing whatsoever about lineups, selling, etc.

    BlackBerry Sells Out In 90 Minutes At Selfridges - Seeking Alpha

    CarphoneWarehouse Selfridges is a veritable moulinex "la machine" of selling:

    They blew out 2000 units in the first 90 minutes
    That's 22.2 phones per minute

    That's one mean machine at Selfridges
    I asked the manager how this compared to the Z10 and she giggled, rolling her eyes and raising her arm in the air skyward, saying it was "leagues beyond anything they had seen."

    "Wow! Looks like BlackBerry isn't DOA as Pacific Crest claimed. I honestly have not seen this much excitement since the iPhone 1 or 2. This bodes extremely well for BlackBerry. BlackBerry is selling into 2+ years of pent-up demand, while iPhone and Samsung (SSNLF.PK) are selling into some serious hardware upgrade fatigue. I'd rather be long BlackBerry today, short Samsung, out of Apple (AAPL)."

    guess we will have to wait a couple of more weeks to get the bounce we were looking for.

    I guess that little stunt did what it was designed to, it nipped the rally right in the bud before it could run away. Today everyone is more weary and so we have a more or less sidewards movement.

    Got to build momentum again.

    BlackBerry Sells Out In 90 Minutes At Selfridges
    Apr 26 2013, 11:33 | by Michael Collins | about: BBRY
    Hoping to get a sense of the excitement behind the launch of BlackBerry's (BBRY) flagship product, the Q10, I went to the high-end UK department store Selfridges at 9:00 a.m. and then again this afternoon.

    What You Need to Know:

    Upon arriving, there were lots of exporters buying 20+ units each. They had suitcases, and one used the suitcase to block people in the escalator so his pal could be first to the counter. Carphone Warehouse had broken customers out into two lines -- single unit buyers like me and "multi-unit" buyers.

    The Set-Up

    Carphone Warehouse is the highest selling retail location in the UK. It has about 6 massive BlackBerry retail booths, fully staffed. It is basically BlackBerry land. I managed to overhear that it had launched with 2000 units that morning. The staff at CPW is leagues above those found at carrier stores as far as training and selling aptitude.

    I just think the independent retailers know how to sell better. The manager at this location is a young girl, Joilty, and she is simply top notch at handling what looked like an exhaustive day on the selling floor. They were bringing phones up in baskets, hundreds at a time. At 3:00 p.m., without phones left, they still had lines in the multi-buyer section and individual buyers' section. People were just trying to secure stock for tomorrow.

    CarphoneWarehouse Selfridges is a veritable moulinex "la machine" of selling:

    They blew out 2000 units in the first 90 minutes
    That's 22.2 phones per minute
    That's one mean machine at Selfridges
    I asked the manager how this compared to the Z10 and she giggled, rolling her eyes and raising her arm in the air skyward, saying it was "leagues beyond anything they had seen." I couldn't get numbers out of her and didn't think it was nice to press further.

    A Note to Those Looking at Samsung:

    According to the leader of one group of buyers, Samsung Galaxy S4 pricing in Dubai had dropped by 110GBP to 399 for the Galaxy S4. He could not believe it. He was shell-shocked. These guys, who buy tons of stock at full retail, take on huge risk and know what they can and can't sell. He won't be buying the S4. This data point needs to be looked into further.

    Conclusion:

    Wow! Looks like BlackBerry isn't DOA as Pacific Crest claimed. I honestly have not seen this much excitement since the iPhone 1 or 2. This bodes extremely well for BlackBerry. BlackBerry is selling into 2+ years of pent-up demand, while iPhone and Samsung (SSNLF.PK) are selling into some serious hardware upgrade fatigue. I'd rather be long BlackBerry today, short Samsung, out of Apple (AAPL). Enjoy the pictures below.
