    My thoughts as well. But it begs to question whether BB has anything, really anything, that will spark the interest? Patents ? But BB will want to hold onto these.
    It's been a few major corps that have already denied interest, although if anything does happen, we'll only know right at the end. And remember, it's a Canadian company. So different acquisition laws and conditions do apply.

    I have to lean towards Del's response on this one. If someone does buy BB what do they really have? Is there some technology that hasn't been exposed as of yet. Do they take what BB is today and combine it with android, windows, etc then expose the market to it?

    So many questions so few answers at this point.

    By the way I'm staying home and retired. It's just not worth it!!!

    Owning BB would be like having a first date. Spend a lot of money, do a lot of hoping, but probably end up needing a cold shower.

    Yeah, you'd have to get BB wicked drunk just to get to second base.
