Comment Meh (Score 2) 376

So I'm still getting used to this but so far... Turned off all the tiles and Cortana and do dads and gegaws so its much like the old Win & that I upgraded. Can't see what all the fuss is about. It seemed a little snappier until it overheated this old thinkpad several times. I had to crank back the CPU usage to 70% and now just as slow as Windows 7 was. Meh why bother.

Comment Based on incorrect information (Score 3, Informative) 29

As always with Blackberry stories this news is based on incorrect information. According to Crackberry the Senate was informed that the Blackberry Classic phone, which does run BBOS10 is being discontinued not all phones running the BBOS10 operating system. Blackberry is continuing to update the operating system with a new version 3.3 in the final release now.

Comment Why all this hatred is focussed on Blackberry? (Score 1) 144

I'm not sure why all this is on Blackberry when they are just following what a lawful court ordered. After all even with Apple strenuously resisting in the San Bernadino terrorist case the FBI still hacked into the phone with private help. Shouldn't the vitriol be focused on the government that ordered this infringement of liberties? After all Snowden's leaks have illustrated that no one is safe if the government wants to get into your phone and your business.
