The troubled Canadian company has bet a lot of its success and the strength of its enterprise management systems like BES and has been making strides toward the ability to manage multiple platforms like Android and iOS. BlackBerry CEO John Chen said, “only underscores the ongoing need for secure end-to-end enterprise mobility solutions like those BlackBerry has delivered for years.” BlackBerry stock shares took a dip in Wednesday trading.
The settlement is conditional on the outcome of a pending appeal. A ruling by the 2nd U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in New York in Apple’s favor would either reduce the amount Apple pays to $70 million or eliminate payments altogether.

BlackBerry Assistant seems to be an app-launcher and information provider similar to Apple’s Siri and Microsoft’s Cortana, but without contextual suggestions like Google Now.
The robot can take photos, tell stories while showing images on its touchscreen, and of course, it can dance around and act out things. It even has touch sensors on its head. However, it is not mobile. That keeps the price down to $499. But it does recognize faces, runs on Linux and is programmed in Javascript.
The post was titled “The place to avoid in Cap-Ferret: Il Giardino” and described poor service and attitude in Doudet’s opinion. The judge ruled that the post was harmful because it showed up fourth in Google search results. The entire post has been deleted.

Pick of the Day

For food shopping, I can’t buy anything without scanning it with Fooducate first.

It is a curated database of food products submitted by users and evaluated by experts.

All you have to do is scan a product’s barcode and the app will give the product a letter grade based on the ingredients and nutrition information. It will also tell you how healthy the product is relative to similar products, and it will flag any ingredients that are especially good or bad based on the current research with a link that explains why.

Sometimes the results are surprising. You wouldn’t believe how different the grades are on two different brands of hummus or other “healthy” products.

The app is free for Android [AND APPLE ] with options to report allergens, gluten or track diets with a pro subscription.

I just use the free version, and I find it a lot easier than reading all the ingredients and trying to remember which are supposed to be bad ones.

Too bad it won’t tell you whether the price is a good deal. :-(
