I don’t think one stops being a pioneer because one no longer controls or even participates in a market! Once you have pioneered something, that stays with you forever, LMAO.

Selling the handset business is obviously pre-mature. BlackBerry 1st needs to actually market BB10 devices, something they’ve failed to do since launch in 2013.
John Chen knows this, and talked about getting the company to a certain healthy state before pushing forward in Marketing BB10 devices.

I believe the year is 2014, this year where we will see a stronger marketing push and carrier support for superior BB10 devices.

With the NSA making backroom deals with application developers and RSA (and other) encryption technologies – you’d be a fool to think any digital communications are ‘secure’.

Sure *maybe* the NSA would use it properly(LOL!!!) – but what of all the employees and such at the various ISP’s who house the data?
