re: BlackBerry U.S. Launch Disappoints: Where Are Ads?
I'm a little tired of iFixit's rantings. In reality, almost no one has an interest in fixing their own phones and tablets. Generally, the same thing is true of notebooks. The only entity benefitting from "repairability" is iFixit themselves, as that is their business. So their statements are rather self serving. It's also true that devices that are manufactured with various components fixed together in such a way as to make it more difficult to repair (though, that's not the aim), are more reliable and perform better, such as when screens, glass and touch layers are bonded together.

So while its wonderful that you can go and try to find Z10 components to fix your own phone, it would be better if it didn't need fixing in the first place.

I couldn't escape the ads on all the March Madness TV coverage. I realize that's not the end-all in marketing support, but it sure had to chew up the ad budget.

The Business of Going Digital
Digital business isn't about changing code; it's about changing what legacy sales, distribution, customer service, and product groups do in the new digital age. It's about bringing big data analytics, mobile, social, marketing automation, cloud computing, and the app economy together to launch new products and services. We're seeing new titles in this digital revolution, new responsibilities, new business models, and major shifts in technology spending.
