    Hello and good afternoon my people. I think Black Berry is dumping the phones on our people because they will be out of business by year end. The fired almost five thousand employees last week because consumers not buying their products.

    Nice. Usually, the first ones to own these new updated versions are the unemployed youth.
    I hope we the youth are able to put our priorities straight and only accept such gifts from our parents when the time is right.
