    Sunday AM I was surprised to see an ad flash up about the Priv during the Sunday talk show "This Week." That in the DC market. I had no idea BlackBerry was advertising it.

    Define 'ad'. They've been doing placements alongside political pieces for a while now. DC seems very political lol.

    This was not political. This is major Sunday news program. The ad was a full screen image of the Priv with a voice announcing along the lines of 'This segment has been brought to you by BlackBerry PRIV, the most secure phone '

    In a way I think it's smart marketing... they are trying to keep their name "relevant" in the minds of those in Government, which is one of their key remaining customers

    Serious news programs (on Sunday morning) are usually political.

    Different from our regular (less serious - Monday through Satuday) news programs, telling us what the Kardashians are doing, and who is fighting on Twitter with Kanye, and which celebrities were arrested over the weekend.

    Hey, you misunderstood. :-))

    I'd love to have the odd little debate or episode here and there, it's CrackBerry forum rules that dictate it, plus mods shutting down some good threads at the mere mention of anything remotely political. That's what I was getting at....

    It's all good

    :-D

    (there's a friendly grinning wink for that, hey! ;-D )

    The point was that Blackberry paid for an TV ad here in the DC area - I thought for a moment that there was some breakthrough. The program they sponsored is irrelevant. Of course that is too little and too late. The Priv is history. I find Android a lot more difficult to use, and amateurish, when compared to my previous Passport but it does run the few current Android apps which the Passport had stopped doing.

    The ad was shown in other areas beside DC.
