    Guys (and girls ) I haven't forgotten about this little project. I just got a little behind on grown up stuff
    But yeah I will get back to this now. I really like the Avro Arrow reference for this though... Hmmmmm

    There once was a PlayBook from RIM
    It's future was bright way back then
    The upgrades would shine
    They will be out anytime
    And soon we'll all have BB 10
    But the promises died
    And the faithful all cried
    As we realized we'd been shafted again

    Hey, just a thought but you could run a contest of sorts and give a shirt to the winning idea. That is,of course, if enough people want shirts .
    I think the shirt should be black, like in berry, by the way.

    Unfortunately I'm about to drop my PB and go with something new and shiny
    See, I have been tempted to do the same thing, but the damn thing is just so well made! Realistically, the vast majority of apps are of no use to me, a tablet is meant for web browsing, facebook, email, etc IMHO, and the PB excels. If it wasn`t for the damn thing not running the Comixology app as good as a native android device does, I would never buy another tablet.

    The CEO promised OS 10 would be on the PB and did it more than once. Personally its not such a big deal to me on the tech side of things but on the business side, add in what he said about the great response and huge sales of Z10, this is not how a CEO should act. Hence, the company we have in front of us now. I don't care at what point in the product cycle you make your claims but in big boy world you don't promise what you can't deliver - EVER.

    I am going to say your right that BlackBerry makes a great device. But with BB10 not on the PlayBook (not that I personally care but lots of others do), BB10 going to save the company and sale millions of units and hasn't happened. At this point it really doesn't matter. Its pretty much a mute point and I think the last nail has been driven.

    I am going to use my BlackBerry devices until they stop working. Its just a hard pill to swallow with what is happening to BlackBerry after year of using there products. I still fill that they are better than the rest out there. With my PlayBooks and 9930 I can still run circles around all of my coworkers with there Iphone and android devices. My coworkers always ask me how did you do that so fast (you have to love all of those shortcuts on the legacy devices). I fill that it was a mistake crippling the bridge on BB10 devices and removing all those fantastic shortcuts. But thats my opinion and you all know what they say about that.

    I do like bourbon and that sounds like a date. Then next year at this time we can do the same thing and BS about do you remember all the good things about BlackBerry before they were bought out and cut to pieces or when Thor took 55 mill to destroy the company.

    maybe when crazy German Heins is history (hoffentlich) and they have some money left; a new tablet will be introduced. All the bull**** about Playbook OS 10 was because he did make promises to public without talking back to IT in concern to feasibility.
