    If moving from BES to BES10 were a simple software patch....
    If BlackBerry hadn't had a two day shutdown that kill all BlackBerries a couple of years ago and identified a weakness in being reliant on one vendor....
    If BlackBerry hadn't gone up for SALE....
    If BBRY wasn't so depressed and vulnerable to a buyout, they could easily lead to a shutdown of some services or at least a change in operations....

    Then sure it's crazy for any business not to consider them...
    Man these excuses are getting real tiresome. How did Apple ever make it into the millennium with all the mistakes they were doing losing market share left, right and center.

    Hold onto this list cause when all else fails you can always keep pulling it out...

    You called Ford stupid for their decision.

    I'm just pointing to what maybe the reasons that they and other business and governments "might" be leaving BlackBerry.... yes they are tiresome reasons. But regardless of how tiresome they are, do you not think that a CFO doesn't consider them? Many here think BlackBerry is already firmly on the road to recovery... but most CFO's don't come to CrackBerry or believe every word coming out of a CEO's mouth (even their own). They look at the finical statements on a company and what the dreaded analyst have to say (not seeking alpha).

    Yes security is important... but it isn't exclusive to the decision making process.

    As for Apple, they made it into the millennium with a lot of help from Bill Gates... and because they recognized an opportunity during the MP3 music craze that Napster brought on. So they created a DEVICE and an ECOSYSTEM... the two together were a hit with consumers. But they were focused on consumers, and they have continued to build on that device and that original ecosystem. Along with their experience in the PC/MAC war... it's all about the ecosystem. But most all business I know of tend to hire consumers to work for them, and those consumers tend to influence what goes on....

    Good point re: the ecosystem lesson Apple was forced to learn in the PC/Mac war.

    Ecosystem? Really. IOS ecosystem is Mickey Mouse. Great for kids.

    I am confident that Bb is working on developing an ecosystem with blend that is secure, professional and efficient.

    Again that is my opinion.

    I don't know that you can accurately label the ecosystem with the most apps geared towards professional occupations as "Mickey Mouse".

    This is proof in point that the majority of corporate phones are basically personal devices the company provides as a perk. Might take a call or two on or read an email but that's about all the work that gets done on it. Speaking from experience here

    Posted via CB10
    Yes, and all those ***** employees who take that work phone home and load it with all their personal apps and files. Then their corporate IT managers can track and have access to their online activities.

    Folks, as I have said in a few of my post. This is great for corporate America, the BYOD program is exactly what they wanted.

    Why should they spend their hard earned capital on new devices when they can simply have their employees use their own personal phones and not have to spend a dime???

    This is best profitable idea I have seen in a while and most of the employees are to stupid to figure it out.

    Many large companies provide a stipend if you BYOD. It doesn't cost the employee extra and they get the phone of their choice.

    Nice ride there! Beautiful looking truck. I know what it's like to own a vehicle built to be tough, yet you'll cringe whenever the possibility of scratching it crops up.

    Thanks! I took this pic at the dealership when I took delivery. It's already got one ding, though. A few days after picking it up I drove down the Alaska Highway to Edmonton for a conference (about 1,200 miles), and when I was driving through oilpatch country a rig service truck kicked up a rock about the size of a fist that hit near the top of the windshield. Too big to repair, but it's out of my line of sight when I'm driving anyway.

    *sigh*

    Aside from that, it's a beautiful truck. And Ford Sync works perfectly with my Z30.

    Does the windshield have a sticker in the corner that says Kansas City assembly? Or Dearborn Truck Plant?

    It's out of the Dearborn plant.

    With the new aluminum-based F-150 coming out in the fall, the current model is available for some pretty decent discounts. I got this one for about 20% off list.

    I don't actually drive a lot. My commute is only about 5 miles and I try to bike that when I can, so I don't rack up a lot of miles. The plan is to drive this one for 4 years then get one of the lighter new-gen once after they've had a few years to work the bugs out.
