I can't even stress how much sense this makes.
I'm a *lousy* programmer. In theory, I understand the basic concepts, I get the jargon, and I can talk the talk, but I will be damned if I can walk the walk though.
I got into sales while I was suffering through school, not enjoying what I was studying, but loving what I was doing at work to put myself through school, so I made a career out of sales, and I'm currently the Sales Manager for a pair of Bell Mobility Corporate stores in Canada. My staff give me all the geeky clients, the nerds who are trying to hack out a living as app developers, and I love it.
So, purchase a current device and hold off on the QNX upgrade path?
The QNX devices don't even launch for several months, so talking about them now is nothing more than pure speculation, which in my not so humble opinion, is fucking pointless.
Just a question, but why Android?
If you indeed NEED the security (I do for work, which is why I have a BlackBerry) why not just go the tried and true route of BlackBerry? Security is built in, everything except SMS (to my knowledge) can be encrypted, and you don't have to worry about updates from a 3rd party firmware (CM) breaking your apps or security model.
Other things I LOVE about my BlackBerry...
This is a sincere question. I carry two devices (BB 9900 for work, and a CM9 rom'd SGS2 for my personal phone) and I personally cannot stand the exchange email client on Android, it just seems slow and clunky, and CM9 helped a little bit, but not much. Use the right tool for the job, instead of trying to shoehorn a tool into the job you want it to do.
I've been through the hard times, and was looking for work in the hard times, and, walked out of an interview during the hard times because a company wanted access to a password protected area of my personal website.
when I refused the job, I told them exactly why, and thanked them for their time, and went to work for a competitor.
“Subsonic cruise missiles, aircraft, fast-moving boats, unmanned aerial vehicles” — Mike Deitchman, who oversees future weapons development for the Office of Naval Research, promises Danger Room that the Navy laser cannons just over the horizon will target them all. I'm confused. Surely the one thing a laser canon can't do is target things from over the horizon.
I think he is using the word horizon as a metaphor for "coming soon" not a target on the literal horizon. Sloppy wording for sure, it took me a moment to process as well.
