You talk about being unbiased and now you are biased towards a person just because he worked for Verizon in the past?

Hopefully, he will not do what he did with Ericsson, when he sold the company to Sony.

d**k looks like he knows A LOT about technology... back in the 70's. It is nice to be C level and just delegate everything to smarter people. Blackberry is so dead. They can spend all the money they want to hire more high level people but when it comes down to producing a good product design with good software, look to people that actually understand it.
