On that picture... why is privacy only one small aspect of the IoT? Shouldn't it be the biggest piece to it? Like a circle encompassing everything?

Awesome! This is a perfect time for BlackBerry to show how secure it is ( with the whole icloud hack thing going on)... long live BlackBerry!!..


I hope they all have their elevator pitches down pat and talk fast. The sessions are pretty short. Looks like a convention based on twitter culture - half an hour max sessions instead of the usual hour or so.

OK here we go again...posted on the wrong article and Blaze called me out ,such a diplomat, so Alex Saunders is VP of Cloud Business???read the link and I guess this IOT is,Pie In the Sky,watch out for Alex jumping ship and don't say you didn't see it coming.One has to preform for BB these days and if you are just imagining things and not bringing in some Bucks,Salut!!!

Some great sounding sessions. Should drive a lot of interest. Hoping they all are exceptional speakers and if so this conference should bode well for BBRY.

I guess this is a good timing, considering the upcoming launch of our much anticipated Passport and Classic.
