An Opportunity Of A Lifetime for BlackBerry
Not long ago when you heard BlackBerry, you thought: the device to use if communications security is really important. Then governments -- some legit, some not so much -- started to push RIM to give backdoor access. RIM caved. A lot of businesses started to move away from RIM.
I think this fight between Apple and the FBI could be a really opportunity for BlackBerry. Get in there punching. Announce that BlackBerry will be going back to its roots and offerring end-to-end impossible-to-hack communications tools/services. Stand by Apple to say NO to the government who wants private companies to work for them.
BlackBerry should stand for something: fully encrypted, fully private, fully secure phones and services. Or something like that. This is BlackBerry's opportunity of a lifetime. BlackBerry should take advantage of it.
