    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.

    That's the joke. Her employer gave her a 5 year old phone to use. It pointless to compare it to a 2009 phone since we're in the year 2014.

    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.
    Some people are REALLY insecure about their consumer electronic purchases and have created an identity around them.

    Oh so it's a joke about her for comparing the two? The problem people have with the video though is that it continues to push the image that BlackBerry is old crappy tech.

    And that's not what the video is about. It's trying to push her employer to issue more up-to-date tech. Heck, if they're still using 9700s at her workplace, I'm sure employees would love to get a Q10.

    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!!!
    Not necessarily. The 9700 works better with BBOS 5 then 6. It just doesn't have the ram for the increased graphics.

    BTW guys you do realize that video was satirical right? It was not a serious news article

    Yes and the up to date tech she's hinting at here is the new iPhone. Not any of the new BB10 lineup. Which would be more appropriate considering she's unhappy with her legacy BlackBerry.

    Stuff like this is BlackBerry's fault. I hope they use the upcoming launch events to try to start educating the world (especially the US) on BlackBerry 10 OS.

    Exactly. BlackBerry should be going to the company she works for, and give them a BES10, and a case of BB10 phones for employees, especially since it is a media company and can do this sort of damage. They need to kill off BBOS devices ASAP because they tarnish the image every day they are used.

    This is nothing new. Older BlackBerry has been getting compared to everything new all the time and I get it at work. I tell people I have a BlackBerry and next thing I hear, "that piece of crap" they don't want to hear that it's a Z30, the best OS out there. People just don't care unless there's an apple on it.

    Trust me when I got the Z10 in white and told people I switched to an iPhone. I thought the world stopped moving. All I heard was, "I can't believe you finally did it" I replied, "F that I will never in my life would I get an Apple anything "
    And that was the reason I got the z10 on white. First thing everyone asked, "is that an iPhone "
    Reply "Yep!" and walk away

    Clearly sarcasm. I thought the video was entertaining. The National Post needs to go BES 10/12!

    It was definitely entertaining. Some people here on CB don't like it when anyone says anything negative about BlackBerry, even if they say that same thing about other platforms. As soon as anyone doesn't say BlackBerry is the best they get their panties in a bunch and don't pay attention to what the author is really saying.

    She was poking fun at the National Post. If people weren't so over protective of BlackBerry they would realize that, and see the humor.

    Yes, that is true.

    Both her and David are right though. Her empoyer should be upgrading them and her video is click bait based on the old "RIM is dead" warcry.

    Lol, why should her employers upgrade her phone if that phone still does the job, most offices are still using Windows XP, don't see them ever in a rush to upgrade OSs or computers to the latest tech.

    Value for money.
