    Well Apple finds a way to put a high price on that.
    Yes, it does have a talent for that. Baffles me, but I admit I wish I had that talent.

    This kind of publicity is really negative. It will have an even more bad impact on the brand.

    This is definitely bad publicity and all the tech sites seem to have picked it up quite fast. People come out and say such nonsense because they know there is no marketing and BlackBerry won't come out and defend. One has to seriously wonder when is BlackBerry going to come out of its shell and market the products?

    Market the products (software or hardware or whatever), change the perception of BlackBerry and I think that would be the real progress.

    I use a passport for personal use but have tried doing company linkedin updates and have to resort to the Web version to attach images. Many facebook features also don't work as easily on the app as the web version.
    I love my BlackBerry but all these people who say 'it's aimed at business, productivity etc, not apps and toys' miss the point most businesses use social media and need. It to be the best.
    Also many companies launch apps into there markets that are only on ios.
    It's a shame.
    On ease of use I find BlackBerry10 easier than ios but it's what I'm used to, with time I'm sure ios would work for me also!

    Swiped on my beautiful Passport!

    Thing is, he is already very dangerous without a brain.
    Cameron, Millband, Clegg all career politicians with no sense of the real world.

    What does a blackbrry do that an iPhone can in regards to his job. In the USA, that phone would be a tax write off so if he played games on it in the USA, and claimed the phone as a tax deduction it would be something called tax evasion.

    He never said which BlackBerry device he has,which OS it has, or that he did not understand the OS. If he truly is the target market, as one post said, then it's a BlackBerry success because be bought the device. It must meet his needs. And there are people who will buy a BlackBerry just because he bought one, irrespective of what he said his reason was. The longer I have my Passport and the more I just try things out on it and read posts on Crackberry, I discover that there are apps I downloaded that I did not even need because the phone already did what the app does.

    Well, the unnecessary and oft thought illegal Iraq war cost 38 million a day since 2002, the partial buyout of Lloyds, HBOS and the Northern Rock bailout cost the taxpayer billions, the extraordinary amount of borrowing that went on between 1997 & 2010 left the UK with over 1.2 Trillion in debt, the sale of our gold reserves at ridiculously cheap prices meant residual wealth was depleted with no easy way to regain, the rebuilding spree that occurred across the nation of schools that only really needed repair not a total rebuild cost billions, the handing back of the annuity from the EU that Margaret Thatcher fought so hard to secure, simply because France complained that we were getting too much and last but not least, the admission of that governments failings in a short note by the then chancellor to George Osborne at time of handover "we're dreadfully sorry, but there's nothing left" he was forced to apologise of course, but one of the senior finance ministers of the last disastrous Labour government, Mr Ed Balls would be the new chancellor of the Exchequer if Labour are reelected. This is a heavily abridged version of events as I don't have all night, but i'd rather trust the party that's lowered unemployment, lowered crime, brought our troops home, lowered the deficit, boosted small business and kickstarted the economy again.

    Just my two pence.

    I understand what he is saying. I love my Passport but I'm not on it nearly as much as my previous galaxy phone with all the apps etc.

    ...this is true, I am not only Z30 anywhere near as long as my Mrs. and her iPhone 5s...I can get on mine, do what needs to be done...then back to whatever I was doing before...and I do 'more' than she does on hers as mine is my personal and work phone...the best part is that I do all of this on a single charge (with some juice left to boot), while hers is on life support by about 5:00......I have even used my USB OTG adapter to keep hers going while she checked her messages...

    Sure. There are lots of products and services that add value to my life. But when I've ever seen something bad written or said about them I've never thought of taking it personally. It's just stuff. If this stuff wasn't present in my life adding value it would just be something else. Its all interchangeable.

    Being that personally and emotionally invested in our stuff is not something that should be celebrated or brushed off as "no big deal".



    It's not even remotely close to being in the ball park of being anything like that.
    Yeah I personally wouldn't go so far as the baby stuff, and your point of view is valid but it's also just as valid for people to take it personally if they feel they want to because these are personal products..

    Say someone saw that article then saw me using a BlackBerry and they make the assumption that I'm using a phone that's simplistic or has limited functionality, that can extend to an assumption about me as a person because the things I choose use are an extension of me(obviously not always), people by a Porsche because it's been marketed and the brand built to communicate a certain lifestyle, it says something about them, of course that's not always true, but for me it's valid enough to take offence about someone making a comment especially if it's an !untrue! comment

    It's like someone saying they went from a ford focus to a bugatti Veyron becuase the Veyron has better speed controls and means they're less likely speed..


    Yes at the end of the day it's all just stuff etc. etc. But if people feel the need to defend an untrue statement about something why can't they?

    Not at all. Just because this odd statement reveals a very twisted way of thinking... and if he gets to such affirmations based on a false premise... well... sorry for what should be his management of British politic issues...

    Yes, we don't tend to do as much shouting in the street as supporters of the opposition do. UKIP is a far more sensible vote than socialism (which works REALLY well. not. ) I actually appreciate the sentiments behind UKIP and Martyn Heale is good friend of mine and a thoroughly decent chap. He never tires of trying to sway my vote lol. Certain UKIP policies make a lot of sense and a coalition with them might not be a bad thing. However, as a small business owner, it's who has the keys to number 11 Downing Street that is of equal importance to who is resident next door.

    That's disturbing.
    Well, judging from a lot of Internet foras it's a common thing. Imagine he said that he choose a BMW over a Benz - I'm pretty sure some Mercedes forums would boil over. Go to Macrumors or any other Apple site whenever somebody claims that fingerprint is not safe or something like that - then suddenly they are pseodu scientist looking for their 15 minutes of fame. Heck, I even say one guy call Ericsson for a patent troll because they could not come to terms with Apple about some patents.

    My guess is that it is a psychological thing - "He says something bad about something I use and really care about = he criticises me".

    What he said is actually valid. But it was framed incorrectly.

    The BB10 experience out of the box is more efficient in terms of business use. He did the typical politician thing of bashing though. Frame it as to why it is better for his needs and it would have been great.
