BlackBerry Passport Is Amazon's Best-Selling Smartphone During Early 'Black Friday' Sale.
.... skipped over the simple logic that if Blackberry was "mitigating poor demand", then why was it only targeting Apple users? Why did Blackberry not lay out a trade-up offer for users of all brands out there?
If that's all it was after: mitigating demand.
Well, Mr. Um?
Want to retract your article?
You made a boo-boo thought and put it out in a hurry.
what am I missing in this puzzle?
why hasn't this happened yet to this great company, with real bad management?
isn't a company like this (with its superb fundamentals and growth, but multi-year poor stock price performance) a prime candidate for shareholder activism or buy-out by a competitor?
am I being delusional in thinking so?
offer at $21? .... $23?
850mm in annual sales
120mm in annual NI (non-gaap: get rid off all of those bozos (D. Orr, et al) giving themselves stock compensations)
and the kicker: 30% annual growth!!!
ALL OF THE ABOVE FOR $2.2B TO $2.5B???

from the National Cybersecurity and Communications Integration Center & the U.S. Computer Emergency Readiness Teams.
(Reuters) - The U.S. government warned iPhone and iPad users on Thursday to be on the alert for hackers who may exploit a vulnerability in Apple Inc's iOS operating system that would enable them to steal sensitive data.
There was the potential for hacks using a newly identified technique known as the "Masque Attack," the government said in an online bulletin from the National Cybersecurity and Communications Integration Center and the U.S. Computer Emergency Readiness Teams.
The network security company, FireEye Inc, disclosed the vulnerability behind the "Masque Attack" earlier this week, saying it had been exploited to launch a campaign dubbed "WireLurker" and that more attacks could follow.
Hackers could potentially steal login credentials, access sensitive data stored on iOS devices and remotely monitor activity on those devices, the government said.
Such attacks could be avoided if iPad and iPhone users only installed apps from Apple's App Store or from their own organizations, it said.
Users should not click "Install" from pop-ups when surfing the web. If iOS flashes a warning that says "Untrusted App Developer," users should click on "Don't Trust" and immediately uninstall the app, the bulletin said.
Representatives of Apple could not immediately be reached for comment.

The website, CanadianInsider reported late last night of an open-market Buy in Blackberry comon shares. The buy is recorded as a "Marker Buy" since it has the buyer has not yet filed the necessary forms to make it official. The buy was reported to the website by the brokerage that executed the purchase on the insider's behalf.
Look up "Marker Buys" on the website for Blackberry [stock symbol: BB] for the date 23-Sep-2014.
Good sign, eh!
First, lets be clear: Arnie is NOT a man.

Second, as has been his pattern, Arnie will gloat only after a move has been recorded.
He is a loser, a fake, a charlatan.

A first-look at what BlackBerry Assistant is all about; how it differs from Siri, Cortana and Google now:
“BlackBerry Assistant is voice activated when I need it to be, and helps manage simple tasks on my device from searching my email and calendar, finding out what’s trending on Twitter, to sending trivia night invitations. The more I use it, the more it learns and adapts to me. The more I speak with it, the more tuned-in to my queries it gets,” wrote Donny Halliwell in the post.
He added: “I used it to remind me about a car appointment, a vet appointment and my anniversary. Then, it helped me send an ever-so-romantic BBM note from the car on my way home (all hands-free, of course). It was also my go-to when I needed to find the lyrics to ‘Soft Kitty’.”
Everything is done hands-free, although users will also be able to tap into BlackBerry Assistant via their handset’s keyboard too. You can use Assistant to tweet something, update Facebook or, if you’re driving, get it to read your unread emails. You can also dictate a reply to said email, organise your inbox and search Google for anything that takes your fancy.
And this seems to be just the tip of the iceberg. Another feature of BlackBerry Assistant seems to be complete control over the settings and apps within BB10.3. According to Halliwell, if you want something on – say, your handset’s flashlight – all you have to do is ask… and, BOOM, it comes on. Want it switched off? Just tell it.
BlackBerry Assistant will ship aboard the BlackBerry Passport. The handset is also likely to be the first to carry BlackBerry's new BB10.3 platform.
