    To those wanting a name change for the upcoming BlackBerry device.

    I've seen plenty of comments and complaints about the association of, "Priv," with a toilet/ outhouse.

    Would it change anything, and better highlight the privacy/ privilege purpose, if the name was spelled in all capitalized letters? "PRIV" instead of "Priv"

    How about if the letters of PRIV were rendered into an acrostic format?

    For example, (and I am just making this up because I'm curious about the possible responses):

    P = Privacy
    R = Right
    I = Intuitive or even Integrated
    V = eVolution or even reVolution or whatever else (this letter was more challenging)

    Perhaps some of you can come up with better acrostic ideas?

    In any case, would a capitalized acrostic change it for you? Or, do you still see it as a fumbled opportunity either way?

    Sorry, no. I would not be able to get the Privy association out of my mind. Any product name that has associations with a toilet is a really bad choice (BB Priv -> BB Toilet -> BB Crapper -> BB ****). Hopefully they change the name before launch and someone in marketing needs to be fired.
