Rev Grim Preaches Don’t Build Your House On Sand

My beloved congregation!

How are you this evening?

This is, of course, your usual Sunday sermon which, since i was busy being doused in freezing water has become something of an Evensong.

So, let’s start with some scripture, shall we?

I wonder if any of you have heard The Parable of the Wise and the Foolish Builders?

Generally speaking you had two builders, one who rushed and one who took their time, they were set a challenge to build a house, and they both did, one on sand because it was quicker and easier and the other on stone, yep it took a long time and wasn’t finished nearly as quick as the sand house. BUT when they were both finished the wind and storms came and the house on the sand which had no foundations crumbled and disappeared where as the one on stone, WITH A SOLID BASE stayed standing and withstood many storms there after…

Keep that in mind…

Many people in the press and other mobile companies have been battering BlackBerry for many a year on things like …

You have no apps!

You have no big touchscreen!

No one wants QWERTY keypads (again) its all about touchscreen…

And other things that they seem to think makes the world run…

Well, BlackBerry did listen, they also looked, they watched and they learned from the shadows…

Then they came forth and said “Here you are then, we present you BB10, its all those things you want and more!”

But the naysayers still didn’t believe, they carried on mocking…

BlackBerry then said “Here is BB10.1, its better than before and better than what you’re throwing into the mix!”

This time a few of them looked and thought “oh bugger… what are we going to do?” they put their heads together and came up with a plan “We’ll copy stuff from BlackBerry and throw in the stuff we’ve not yet perfected but looks good and while were doing that we will spread lies and bad press about BlackBerry!”

Along came BB10.2 and FactCheck… they are all a bit more worried now, they need to be too because BB10.2 has had a few tweaks that has made it even better still…

And we have BB10.3 coming soon, AND the PassPort… AND the Classic…AND the Z3LTE…AND Blend…

And if I know our Mr Chen, he’s got something else up his sleeve …

Lets have a quick look at what the others have given us…

HTC M8… what can you say about that? it has a big screen, it’s got a camera that, well, everyone says it pants, its got …er… oh, Android KittyKat… hmm, that seems to kill it then…

Apple iPhone 5S… ahh, of course, the fingerprint scanner… hacked within days buy some teenagers with a printer/scanner… amazing battery life, hopefully that is once you have sent it back to get the battery changed, Majorly good security! If there is something that the government needs to know then the NSA will get it from your phone… as well as everyone else, so maybe security isn’t great, ok then how about the ability to turn into a brick with a simple update? Or the added bonus of  not needing your banking security apps for connection to iTunes. And obviously iOS7 which, every time its updated seems to kill a major function of the phone…

Samsung S5… this too has a fingerprint scanner! Which was hacked even quicker, by the same lads, because they had been to lazy to put away the stuff from when they did the iPhone fingerprint scanner (gotta love that!), its also got a big screen and of course… Android Kitty Kat! As with the HTC you will be happy to know that one in three of your apps comes with free added malware! How good is that?

Windows… do I have to go there?

So, what we have is iOS, which is as secure as… a hungry lion tied to a lamp post with a piece of cotton while a herd of injured zebra hobble past… can’t really build a good business on that now can we?

Or of course Android, which is as secure as a patient in a high security mental facility who’s not received his meds in a few weeks and is now hearing the voices again… Hmm, would you build onto this?

Why are these two operating systems untrustworthy? They are rushing to beat each other to be the best… and who’s sneaking up and creeping past to take the accolades? (hmm, tortoise and hare springs to mind) That’s right, the company that has taken it easy from the start and laid out the foundations to build upon solidly… Ladies and gentlemen… BlackBerry – The wise builder!

Now you can see where I was coming from…

Like I’ve said many a time, BlackBerry may be late to the party, but they have turned up and the others are partied out… except Windows… they’re in the kitchen still…

So, with all this in your minds, when you bump into the naysayers, the iDiots and the so called BoyGenius’s out there, remember that BlackBerry have withstood the storm, they are still standing and they will be for a very long time yet… the others? Well, we wish them luck and hope that on the slide down they don’t take too many unsuspecting people with them…

And so comes the end of another sermon from your Reverend, I hope you get what I was trying to get across, if you didn’t, then maybe you need to go and get sheared and have the wool moved aside, or your feeling a little to sick from the so called ‘Sweet’ things you have been given and once down from the sugar rush you’ll see…

Until next time don’t forget the FORUMS or that birdy thing, help me here someone! I don’t want to look stupid in front of the Mini Reapers by asking what Twitter is all about!

As for FaceBook?

Forget it!

Reverend Grim out!
