    Interesting article, but never going to happen, the iPhone has been embedded into mainstream culture and that's not changing anytime soon.

    I remember when Blackberry was in the same position back in the day, but Apple listened to what their customers asked for, delivered it and are being rewarded for their efforts. Basic business concepts 101.

    BlackBerry crushing Apple can be possible. If they gave up on hardware completely and focus on software and other areas they can become a very profitable business.

    Did you read the article by the way? The author is claiming that the reason BlackBerry will crush Apple is by going all Android.

    If you look past the headline, all he's actually saying is that BBRY could outperform AAPL in 2016 in pct gain/loss.

    I think that's totally possible. Apple has some serious challenges in front of it this year and probably next year as well.

    Well now BlackBerry is listening to the mass who've asked for an Android BlackBerry. I'm guessing BlackBerry will go all Android by next year and officially kill BB10.

    People are getting tired of the same design and the same look Apple has been pumping out. I mean seriously, the iPhone SE is nothing but the iPhone 5 all over again. Not to speak of the FBI mess they got themselves into. Apple is falling.

    This article is all about buying and selling stocks - aka picking stocks. More importantly the author is not talking about BB overtaking Apple but more on the potential increase blackberry stock. As stated in the article:

    "But investors might not. In fact, there’s good reason to believe BlackBerry stock might outperform Apple in 2016."

    Right at the get go the author is talking about the performance of BB's stock and not of the company as a whole. The current Apple stock price is $106.13 per share and BB current stock price $7.69 stock price. Of course an investor can potentially easily make profit on a BB stock since it is cheaper. Not so much for an Apple stock since the price has been hovering around $100 per share. In essence you have to pay more to buy apple stocks and in the same time your potential for profit in selling it is $7 per share (unlike a couple of years ago when the potential for profit was $20 - $40 per share)

    Here are also couple of article from the same website (and one from the same author) this month and both are talking about the potential of Apple's stock price to skyrocket again. As mentioned before the original article is more of a commentary on buying and picking stocks and not in the performance of the companies mentioned. Unless you are buying stocks then the original article is irrelevant.

    If Android were financially beneficial to all of its OEM's you might, might, have a point, but it's not. The only companies benefiting from Android are Google, because they have millions of people using their services, and Samsung, because they sell millions of phones and is the only Android vendor making decent money. For Android to be a benefit to BB, they actually have to sell phones in decent numbers, which would require some competency in marketing(among other things), which the company doesn't seem to possess.

    Actually, the Author does make some sense. He is not saying that BlackBerry will crush Apple as a company. He is saying that BBRY stocks are undervalued at the moment and the %gain or upside of the value of the stocks could outperform APPL stocks.

    Now, why would people buy stocks from a company barely breaking even? Again because of the upside. Blackberry has a lot of potential to earn in their software portfolio and the earnings on that side is recurring. Not like the earnings from hardware sales which is very fluctuating. (see other Android Manufacturers where one OEM is on top one year and the other is on top the other year). Apple growth has also already reached its saturation point. Their growth in the past few years where due to growth in Asian Market - China in particular. This market could potentially be lost due to the decline of China's economy.

    So upside wise, BBRY has a higher upside. High risk, but higher upside. Buying APPL stocks may be lower risk but upside is low.

    Again, article is about stocks and not about the company. Stock is all about risk and rewards.

    Are Blackberry and Apple even competitors? I'm not sure why they are even mentioned in the same categories anymore. One makes phones, computers, watches, tablets, peripherals, has a streaming service and a massive online library, and the other can't decide if they are even going to make the single piece of hardware that they currently make anymore.

    You think the FBI situation was a mess for Apple? You clearly don't understand it if that's what you think. If anything they came out looking like a winner and that their phones are very secure.

    The only issue in the whole story is that it is a 5C. Had it been a 6, it would have been a bigger home run for Apple.

    But I agree this was a net win for Apple and yet another brilliant bit of PR. Love them or hate them, you have admire how quickly and effectively they seize opportunities.

    Only skimmed the article it sees BB as a startup - But time and time again it hasn't gotten the traction and you can't compare it to a startup. You could always hope for a buyout but that goes for any techcompany in straights and you got the Canada / China problem so to hope for a buyout of BB is a fundamentally a bad investment.

    Okay... sure...

    It is entirely possible that BBRY could rise 100% to $15.12 over the next year. That would give BBRY a market capitalization of almost $8 billion.

    It is highly, highly unlikely that AAPL will rise 100%, to $210.68 over the next year. That would give AAPL a market cap of $1.2 TRILLION . (That would be 1/10th the GDP of the United States, by the way.)

    So, sure, if you want to a non-zero chance of doubling your money, buy BBRY!

    Like the iCloud breaches that happened less than four months before the launch of the 6 and 6Plus? What happened? Apple sold more phones than Samsung in the following quarter and recorded the largest quarterly profit of any company...ever. More scandals like that?
