Default Re: Bidders to Break up BlackBerry?

I have wondered many times how differently things would have gone for BB if they had told all the governments where to stick it when they were asking for access to BB's encrypted network a few years ago. They would have lost some business, but it looks like they ended up losing it anyway. That security was something they had that no one else had, or has now. I still wonder if they could rebuild and rebrand themselves successfully by placing privacy at the center of their operations. If the Canadian government would stand behind such a venture (ha!), they could theoretically claw back very quickly. Even the most law-abiding citizens are concerned about their privacy these days. To say nothing of those of us with a few dirty secrets.
