CrackBerry 105: Interview with BlackBerry founder, Mike Lazaridis


Chris has been bleeding money with his BlackBerry investment. Doubt this one-percent club member sleeps well. All in jest.

it was priceless! The best advice he gave was the importance of Adam.....even MR L knows.

BlackBerry for leaders, not followers.

I saw this link on facebook and thought Oohh this should be awesome. I click link and immediately see Adam in a wig..... Fml.

Still watching the show and I'm about 1/2 way through. But I agree with the above poster. Don't think it was really Mike L. ;)

Let me give you a big marketing plus that BBM has that skype and whatsapp have not. Read message. I arrange to meet a college from another country / office in town and only had his Skype. The message he sent me at the arranged time didn't get through, I thought I was stood up, kine did not get to him. I got back on the train and went home. I got the message from him 3 hours later. Who tolerates this nonsense. An evening ruined by useless skype. If it was BBM, it would be clear.

Usually, those kind of mischievous have several factors... either you are right (and the rest of its satisfied users are wrong) that the app itself is garbage... or one of you has problem with connection... or, one you is the problem...

I have similar incident but found out that the other party is only making excuses... as they say, if there is a will, there is a way... otherwise, there are hundreds excuses available... starting from garbage apps... just saying...

This was hysterical! I actually thought Mike L was really going to be on CrackBerry. I laughed so hard I cried, you guys are the best.

Great podcast by the way

I flick all my words on my amazing Z10

It would behoove CrackBerry and, indeed, the entire BlackBerry community if this site were a little more like MacRumors and less like Gizmodo.

I never noticed until now how similar Adam and Mike look. You'd almost be tempted to think that was Adam in a wig.

Blackberry is dead; long live Blackberry!
