    Nope, they did finally put them up for sale though. I never did find the listing for the 3rd one
    According to AllThingsD, BBRY planned to sell all 3 - wonder if they're keeping the Bombardier?

    Honestly I'm not surprised he's staying in California. He mentioned that he read crackberry in his q&a with Kevin. Why would he want to relocate to a country that blames and vilifies Americans?

    Who cares where he lives? It's 2013. People are mobile. BlackBerry already has tons of key talent all over the world.

    Why does John Chen hate Canada?
    He's a character from South Park.

    From my reading of Mr. Chen's experience, he'll do a better job than TH, no matter where he lives.

    Somebody tell him that it isn't a requirement to meet the mayor of Toronto for drinks and some crack, upon first arriving, to do business!

    As a Director of the company it does not matter at all where he lives. But as the top manager -the CEO - that's a different story. Sure it's 2013 and many things can be done via computer-based technology today as opposed to 50 years ago. But virtual CEO? Not so sure. I guess we'll see how long he holds the CEO title before finding someone else.

    No a witch turned him into a newt. But he got better. People are often confused on this point.

    Americano? Nooooo Americano! ( Needs to be read in your best Russel Peters voice!)

    I really could care less where my tech comes from. Just give me options and I will choose the best option for me. More options is always better. For me the best phone is a BlackBerry.

    He's a temporary guy yes? He doesn't plan on having around. So why would be commit to a move to Waterloo?
    The only thing that matters is what's the cunning plan? I suspect baldrick has a better idea than most...

    You couldn't get me away from all that sun and surf either, besides a new perspective is necessary, possibly spilling over.
    Speaking of spilling over, I'm interested to know how much Steve Jobs influence may of had on him, seeing that they both were on Disneys board together.

    .... sigh .... he better be worth it....

    Mr. Chen’s air travel arrangements may also raise concern. During its last fiscal year, BlackBerry provided Thorsten Heins with $123,033 worth of personal travel time on the company aircraft, plus another $18,000 to cover the taxes for that benefit. That benefit is likely to be substantially higher for Mr. Chen, who would commute from his home in California, a company spokesman confirmed.

    And, as part of his compensation, he will be provided with use of a private jet to fly between his home and southern Ontario, said a person familiar with the talks.

    Sources familiar with the cost of business jet travel estimated it would cost upwards of $5,800 per hour, or roughly $52,000 per round trip between San Francisco and Waterloo, to move Mr. Chen.

    Haha!! That's too funny!

    Anyway, Mr Chen is an A-Grade Businessman, not an Engineer.
    He'll should do ok.
