Blackberry goes from darling of the industry to patent troll

    BlackBerry's going after Snapchat now. Who's next?

    How low can they go? Only time will tell, but it's obvious the company is no longer relevant and is doing anything and everything it can to stay in business. It's a pity they're having to resort to being a patent troll.

    They're sure good at writing gobbledygook! :rolleyes:

    As far as I know the invention of written correspondence and the calendar allowed "providing temporal context" many centuries ago when our ancestors used quill pens and parchment as the most modern form of communications.

    Perhaps BlackBerry forgot that. It seems to me that timestamps for messages have been in the public domain for many centuries.

    They're really licking the bottom of the pond...

    Oh, and such a popular brand! NOT!!! Are they even in business except for mining their old patents?
