QNX is seen as a stable, RTOS microkernel for a variety of embedded applications.

QNX somehow never makes it big in the phone market.

iOS, Android, Blackberry, PalmOS, and Symbian start duking it out.

Blackberry starts using QNX and finally states it is going in the direction QNX should have gone 15 years ago instead of the iOpener and its "pizza button."

I am not surprised this has finally happened, but I am also not holding my breath it will succeed.

The overlabeling of everything as harmful is a general symptom of the dumbing down of the world; however, another symptom is illiteracy. Therefore, by the time this idiocracy reaches peak stupidity, everything will be labeled but nothing will be read.

Life finds a way to resolve its own problems.
