    My question is simple. Alec love him or not still WAS a BIG part of bb10 launch. So why not a word here about his departure last Friday?

    You mean some kind of going away party? The fact that a key player is leaving is news. The fact that his last day was last week probably isn't. It sure isn't something that Blackberry is going to do a press release about.

    Back in October didn't mean anything. I meant a farewell post. He is a great person and was a key player. He left last Friday and it would have been nice if someone from CB at least noticed.

    You're right.. it is kinda sad that there was no farewell post. That doesn't mean that no one noticed though.

    CB reported his departure. It's up to BlackBerry to hold the party.

    What do you want CB to do? He's gone, the machine keeps moving. I remember him most for that awful and ridiculous music video he made. Maybe they should repost that video in his honor.

    I liked Alec. Seemed like a cool dude. Nice family man with a passion for business. I don't see any reason to make fun of him... The music video was just for fun. And why not? It was nice to see at least some people were staying positive during a serious decline in Blackberrys business..

    I'm sure he's a nice guy but it doesn't seem like anyone here worked with him at Blackberry, is a family member, or knows him on a first name basis. I also doubt he will be tweeting out an invitation to a Crackberry meetup somewhere in Waterloo.

    I guess my point is that once the guy has finished his job at Blackberry - and has presumably been out of the loop since his resignation - that should be it. Nobody here really has any reason to have a personal connection with him at this point. Anything more is a little odd if you ask me. If he takes a position at Apple, Google, or Microsoft would you feel betrayed?

    I wonder whether his job at Microsoft is to evaluate acquisition opportunities to shore up the Windows platform for smartphones - a guy from the smartphone business would probably be pretty good at acquiring mobile technology. For example, Apple acquired AuthenTec and turned it into Touch ID which has a significant technological advantage over other its competitors.

    He's gone. Life goes on. Why do we need a post from Crackberry other than one reporting that he was leaving, or left?

    With the whole BB10 launch completely botched, you should expect to see some fallout.

    I think moving Alex to QNX was a good move as his well known enthusiasm might have caught on over there and energized that part of the business. I suppose the damage was already done. I do think he was part of the misplaced enthusiasm around BB10 and the complete misread of the market. As a shareholder, I feel some one needs to held accountable for the total absence of market situational awareness.

    I still wish him well in his new endeavors.
