    Ohh yes, the old "I'm going to cancel my bank account that I've had for 25+ years all because they didn't make a BB10 app." Or the "I don't need apps, I'll just use the browser. It's the same thing, if not better." threads. And the "Why are you here" posts.

    But my personal favorites, are the posts, and threads, that try to justify the "Tools Not Toys" and "Get Things Done" attitude.

    its a sure bet a iphone is not that hard either by Bluetooth or wifi!

    At least with blackberry with the wifi sharing on you have to have the password to connect to it. I believe this story to be true.

    From that very article:

    "More likely, though—and more applicable to you and me—security experts suspect that someone broke into an online service that stored the pictures, not the phone itself. (In other words, no Swordfish antics here. Your BlackBerrys and iPhones are safe!) "

    Not so sure it was her phone that was hacked.

    It would be a ridiculous violation of ethics, and you would be so ripe for lawsuits that a "major bank" couldn't get you out the door fast enough.

    Hey, everyone....I've...got...a little surprise....for...you....just let me get this monitor turned...oh heck, let's just put it on the overhead! Hey Hey!!! Who recognizes these pics??? Gary??? Yeah...I'm looking at you buddy!! Oh...I can see on Martin's face...oh he's seen some of these....Wang...yeah...is that your doggy??? Oh...Jennie....was that at the Christmas party??? Um...OK....that looks like some bodyparts...um....Jason...that doesn't look like your wife?

    Oh no....yeah...don't worry...yeah..yeah,....I'll definitely delete these later.
    Yeah it's bad but this is the risk you take when BYOD is implemented. Company can have access to your private information. But the IT manager is likely violating some company policy.

    I tend to be skeptical of any post that starts off like:

    Sorry but I have to call BS. Unless that IT guy was prepared before hand with peoples passwords and personal info than there is no way he could rightfully access those types of documents.

    Now seeing how he does have access to peoples personal info, if he used that to prove a point, well he just broke any confidentiality agreements with said peoples personal informations in that workspace and I for one wouldn't trust him anymore.

    And to say he couldn't access the BlackBerry's is another false claim. If he did all that because of being set up on the presumed Wireless Network the bank would have for employee's, it wouldn't be that hard to access the BBRY phone's data either.

    To many loop holes in this story for it to believable. Yes, BBRY devices are secure, but if they are not on BES, they are no more protected than any iOS, Android or Windows Phone device.
    Agreed. Besides a BlackBerry smartphone activated on a BlackBerry Enterprise Service server or BlackBerry Enterprise Server server can be tracked and audited to a significant extent.

    The people in the meeting didn't know what was gonna happen, they just thought he was making sure they wheren't texting during the meeting.

    So he carried on with the meeting as usual, and at the end, he turned the computer he was working on around, and he had pulled up all the photos, videos, and banking information of everyone in the room, but he couldn't pull up the Blackberrys.

    So he's pushing for everyone to switch.

    ...

    Friends solution - iPhone is not secure. Corporate phones will be BlackBerry (Z or Q). If you do not wish that, use your own phone but it will not be paid for

    ...

    His company now has 43 BlackBerry phones. Not one issue. The iPhone employees have, oddly enough, gone to Galaxy 4's. Others requested to wait for the z30.

    ...

    His policy is the same and, he now carries two phones. Galaxy 4 and, soon enough a z30 (from the q10).

    So. Policy is Blackberry ONLY. Most moved to Galaxy 4. Including him. Mission accomplished.

    I know ONE person who believes this was an excellent security decision.

    Did he consider calling them all into a room and projecting their bank records on the conference room screen?
