Once regarded as Best Buy's fatal weakness, the huge physical store base is proving to be the company's greatest strength, writes Breakout's Jeff Macke. For Blackberry, a smartphone maker whose turnaround effort hasn?t quite gone as planned, forcing it into a strategic review of its business options, even the small victories are cause for celebration. No surprise then that the company issued a press release touting a small order for its new Q10 smartphone. Responding to a $40 million lawsuit that state Attorney General Eric Schneiderman (SHNEYE'-dur-muhn) filed over the weekend, Donald Trump blasted New York's attorney general as a "political hack." Trump says he personally reviewed instructor applications for his "Trump University." The lawsuit claims Trump University promised to make students rich but instead steered them into expensive and mostly useless seminars.
