    Here we go again. Just as when BB10 was launched, the media comes out with complete garbage when BlackBerry news heats up. Actually, I'm not sure what this lady is trying to achieve? Am I missing something? Also frustrating, no comment section.? I did manage to find her email address though. rurback@nationalpost.com

    She does say "to MY 9700". We should bombard her with "Miss, did you know there have been plenty of new devices since the 9700"?

    Here is them on twitter: https://twitter.com/nationalpost

    How about "Robyn Urback should really stick to talking to politics. Or blame her cheap employer on not getting her a Z30."

    Here is her on twitter: https://twitter.com/RobynUrback

    Do be kind. No personal attacks. Keep it classy.

    Full site does have comments... And it's not looking good for her.

    Oh I agree. No personal attacks. I guess she is just trying to be funny? I just wanted to send her a few words about BB10 is all. No reason to freak out on her, lol.

    I'm starting to think she simply likes to troll.



    Keep it classy if you wanna send something, but I withdraw all previous suggestions.

    She seems more intent on using the bold to shame her employer rather than to disparage BlackBerry.

    Now that I think if, you're probably right. I sent her some nice literature on BB10 anyways.

    She is totally clueless even with regards to "her 5 year old 9700", if you look close enough, it's running OS 5! Lol, its not even "updated" to OS 6, that's how clueless she is! XD

    Loved the Q10 but now it's Z30 power time!!!

    Perhaps someone should send in a comparison video of a Passport verses a 2009 ipod.

    Can't really see what the fuss is about. She says the 6 plus is just stupid so not even a fan "actually I like these gonzo reviews no matter how stupid or biased they be. Cos you can almost never find comparison to older technology and any one will know that it's way older anyway...

    I think she made her point well in the video!

    You guys are the dim wit black sheep. She is making fun of her employer, National Post, for giving Bold 9700s to their employees...

    Yes genius, she can't update it because it's work phone. Now you know why people dislike "their" BlackBerrys.

    Thanks, I didn't realize that. Usually a list will come up with similar threads when starting a new one. Not this time? Unless I just missed it?

    She can't request an upgrade? No BYOD?

    Do a little research. Every article she writes is satirical in nature. Stop taking things so seriously.

    Is this type of "sarcasm" necessary "genius"? Dude, lighten up, we're having a good laugh at the video, period. And as someone mentioned, couldn't she just ask for an upgrade? Geez...

    I thought it was a funny video, as it was an attempt to be. At least she compared it to her current phone, which she did mention was circa 2009. She didn't try to compare features or anything serious.
    I would say it was a rather slow news day if she couldn't come up with anything interesting

    The problem is that most people don't pay attention to the details and all they are seeing is an iPhone compared to a BlackBerry. It may seem like it's all in good fun but what the majority of viewers will take away from this is iPhone good, BlackBerry bad.

    There are plenty of BlackBerry defending comments following the video, and even non-BB users are looking forward to the Passport. Lighten up, folks, this is supposed to be funny.

    I just watched her video. I don't think she clueless. And I don't think this video meant to attack BlackBerry.

    I thought it was a funny video, and I'm a BlackBerry user. I don't really understand all the outrage; satire is funny, even if it pokes fun at something you happen to like.

    It's not funny at all because I had that phone in 2009 and it's now 2014. It would've been funnier for her to compare the iPhone 6 with the Nexus 4 like that infographic floating around.
