Re: Not Even Kim Kardashian Can Save Blackberry - http://www.benheyman.com/even-ki...
"BYOD is not a panacea, as many companies are finding out. Security and the separation of personal data from corporate data are real sticking points. Industries like healthcare, government and insurance are particularly fraught with concerns over these issues, and it will be difficult to get them to let their employees have a toy instead of a tool. Blackberry is still the gold standard for security in the mobile device world." - Scott Monty
Re: Not Even Kim Kardashian Can Save Blackberry - http://www.benheyman.com/even-ki...
"True, a celebrity spokesperson can't save them. And I'm not aware that Kim Kardashian is serving that role; her Code/Mobile appearance didn't indicate she's a spokesperson - just a loyal customer. What can save them - and it appears that the ship is turning - is Blackberry's focus on business customers and security. They don't have to compete with the iPhones and Androids for consumer market share (nor can they), but they've got a solid footing in many corporate settings already. With all of the concerns around data breaches, security and the like, Blackberry's core strength remains." - Scott Monty

"Great comments, Matt. Agree with all of them - particularly with point #3. We need to focus on behaviors to make the customer experience better. And I'm still not convinced that social media (I used the term again - sorry!) belongs squarely in marketing. I think that's what has led us to where we are today, and the silos need to be broken down organizationally and structurally in organizations." - Scott Monty

Re: What Is It That We Love in Sherlock Holmes? - I Hear of Sherlock Everywhere - http://www.ihearofsherlock.com/2014...
"Interesting thesis. With regard to making Holmes fallible and relatable, I'd argue that the essential catalyst there was none other than Dr. Watson himself. For it is he who is the Everyman, the lens through which we meet and greet Sherlock Holmes. It is Watson's interpretation and response that mirrors our own." - Scott Monty

Re: Joan Rivers: Why Johnny Carson 'Never Ever Spoke to Me Again' - http://edit.hollywoodreporter.com/node...
"Joan's take is decidedly one-sided. She left out a key point about Johnny: she called him only the night before the press conference to announce her new show. After two decades of being on Johnny's show, she didn't let him in on the opportunity to share her news regarding hosting the Fox show until just before it was going public. And this was during the time that she was undergoing negotiations to continue as guest host on the Tonight Show. And she even asked his executive producer, Peter Lassally, to represent her at the press conference, assuming that he would be her producer (without even consulting him). It was only after calling Peter - again, the night before the announcement of her new show - that she called Johnny. Still, she was a great talent and her absence from television and the stage is a huge loss." - Scott Monty
