Blackberry Says They're Future-proof

By McKay Thomas

I stumbled in to a “news” story aboutBlackberry this evening that proved that they have learned just about nothing since there very public downfall.

In an interview with a German newspaper just yesterday, said Thorsten Heins, Blackberry’s CEO:

"We have taken the time to build a platform that is future-proof for the next ten years."

That assumes so much. They are basically over engineering an OS that competes with the existing mobile OSes. The status quo, basically. Also called playing catch up. I think it’s safe to say that their new OS, BB 10, is just as “future-proof”as the company itself. Which is to say, not much.
