Re: Experience With New Devices

Wearing another hat I have a fair amount of experience with Apple support. I'm not nearly as impressed as you. Very spastic, in fact, once the questions got beyond the basic new user level.

Re: Playbook And Bb10

Guess how useful a PlayBook is depends on how a person uses it. If it was just an extension of a person's device and you buy the newest offering certainly it is less useful. On the other hand if...

Not the issue. Issue is "near real time claim".
With a couple exceptions all messages can be read. Maybe text not decoded but message obtained.

Re: U.K. Government Hacking BlackBerrys?

I guess my knowledge is out of date. Memory says that BES had some security capability that was superior to BIS. But, to take advantage of it all data had to go through the BES server.
