    “Still despite calls for it to exit the software business”.

    Uh. I think you guys mean the hardware business. Small mistake there

    Beyond that these “security summits” are a joke. Just like the company itself. They need to go private if this is going to be their focus. It’s bland, boring and not profitable for an investor.

      Well, with Pokemon articles outnumbering BB news 100:1, proofreading the latter is not likely to be a priority for tech-sites.

    • Maestro Karajan

      It says something when Nintendo stock doubles on Pokemon alone and this piece of shjt can’t even break $9.00 or $10.00 and stay there. lol!
      There is nothing here that excites people anymore. It isn’t 2005 and yet that message isn’t sinking into these clowns. Unreal….

    BB doesn’t have to exciting or cool. Security software solutions might not be sexy but if it does the job and well, then well…that’s their bread and butter.

    Just get out of the hardware business, it’s just not profitable or worth it.

      Tha’s true, honey. He makes pones for them horse traders an’ share croppers.

    “…Scientific and Technological Research Council of Turkey use QNX in its upcoming E1000 electric train”

    Bad timing for Mr. Chen. That council is no doubt looking for sleep-on-the-floor space somewhere in an overcrowded Ankara dungeon.

  • Good for BB. They are closer and closer to becoming Canada’s very own IBM. Hardware is great but software and IP is the real key.

    Oh, please: is there a single person in the universe who really believes BlackBuried will release three new android phones before the end of this year? There’s fluffling, and then there’s outright nonsense, and this is definitely the latter. Tech product demonstrator extraordinaire, John Chen, mentioned recently that they’re contemplating releasing the second new android phone early next year, with the first such phone coming soon. Excitement is at cadaver-like levels.

    In other news… a turkey of a company is making a deal with Turkey: ’twas Vic Gundotra (after Nokia and Microsoft Phone cosied up) who mentioned that “two turkeys don’t make an eagle”.

    LOL at “calls for it to exit the software business”: precious little left if that happens!

    • Maestro Karajan

      You said it and that’s why Chen has no credibility on this subject anymore. He talks about achieving profitability in hardware in September but its obvious the man is buying time by stretching the release of new devices into next spring. This company is a total joke and anyone that takes anything these guys say at face value is stupid.

      He’s jus’ a simple lil’ country boy meanin’ no harm.

      Ma phone’s got pressy buttons, y’all. Trouble is, them buttons is too small for my fingers…

      I saw a couple of massive wedge tails soaring over the local hills yesterday. I’m sure they would have happily gobbled a turkey or two.

      Eyes to the skies, Mr Chen…

    • Lil’ Cwyin’ Snivel.

      He’s watching the skies alright…his getaway, private jet should be on the horizon shortly….

    • kirfer

      …and the golden parachute is ready for deployment…

  • Lil’ Cwyin’ Snivel.

    The safe just got safer…Gooooo Chen!!!

      Got that right. Where’s Mr. Kim Sh•tty Wok??
