BlackBerry ad turns Priv leak into positive publicity; no more new BB10 handsets?

While John Chen earlier today confirmed that the Android driven BlackBerry Priv is coming, the company ran an ad in the Wall Street Journal that said that the leak of the phone’s real name was “the best demonstration as to why BlackBerry’s products, technology and brand are essential to the world.” The company said that it “found this breach of privacy extraordinary.”

That site lists 18 events over the last two-years that resulted in a fatality, and four incidents where shooting a selfie led to a serious injury.

Recently, we told you about two separate incidents involving the attempt to capture a selfie with a rattlesnake. In both situations, which were just weeks …

Apple’s iPhone upgrade plan helps the company rake in more money per phone

During last week’s new products announcement, Apple introduced a new plan that would allow someone to pay $32 a month for the Apple iPhone 6s, and exchange it for the newest version of the phone every 12 months. The key to the plan is that the customers signing up for it are leasing the iPhone, as opposed to making a downright purchase of the handset. This means that the phone has to be returned in good condition. 

Apple’s plan is not the cheapest. Sprint has its iPhone Forever plan priced at $26 which also includes a 12-month update cycle. T-Mobile is allowing JUMP! on Demand …

One of those minor annoyances that iOS users have come to live with is the fact that preinstalled apps from Apple are unable to be removed from the homescreen. The best someone could do is create a “useless” folder to hide away the unwanted apps. But, that may change… eventually. At least, we can say that Tim Cook …
