While BlackBerry Offers A Complete Security Portfolio, Apple Offers Almost Nothing December 19, 2016 Canuckvoip 221 Views 0 Comments On the eve of BlackBerry’s Q3 fiscal results I’m reading the usual bears posting thinly veiled or blatantly negative articles on the company. One can only surmise that these attack pieces are meant to either bolster their position in stocks like AAPL, or to attempt to force a dip in BBRY. We shall see what happens to those shorts tomorrow, Tuesday Dec 20th 2016. What caught my eye was the amazing amount of people, mostly day traders and investors that are completely and utterly ignorant. Not only are they ignorant about what BlackBerry does, but they are ignorant about BlackBerry’s focus and direction. Statement after statement is about how Apple’s iOS is the most secure mobile OS available, which I find to be frustratingly hilarious. When it is pointed out that iOS gets jailbroken within days of a new version coming out, what you get back is “iOS gets hacked because it’s popular”. Or how about “Security through obscurity is not security”. Even though nobody has ever rooted a BlackBerry 10 or BlackBerry Android device somehow it magically doesn’t matter. Absolutely amazingly myopic logic (or lack thereof). So I thought to myself “What is the difference between these two companies?” I mean, why do Apple boosters actually think that what Apple offers is better/more secure than what BlackBerry offers? I decided to write it down.
