Re: Throw back sale
Michelle, 

Blackberry has been dead for so long I can't even remember since when. No one can bring Blackberry or Yahoo back. Both are way far from being a good investment.

Throw back sale
Someone should buy Blackberry and Yahoo, then bring them back to life. I don't know what that might look like, but it could be an interesting development for both companies.

It AIn't Over, Unitl It's Over, but it will be Ending Soon
BB has 1.8% share of the cell phone market - down from about 44% at its peak. 

Apparently, the US Government still likes the security, and so it hangs on there, and with other governments and security conscious people/leaders

I don't know when the US Govt will pivot to another brand, but I have a hard time seeing it embrace Apple now. Will Google-Nexus take over when BB leaves the government market?
