There's a good piece on TechCrunch about a benefit of Reg A+ which is that it will allow companies that go public to give back to their early adopters through invitation to participate in the IPO. http://techcrunch.com/2015/06/19/new-rules-allow-early-adopters-to-become-early-investors/?ncid=rss

things I miss now that I've turned off my BlackBerry
I recently switched to Android (Moto X) from BlackBerry (Q10). I'd used a Nexus 4 for a while as a back-up phone so nothing was new to me but I'd always also used a BlackBerry. Now I'm sensibly down to just one phone. I don't regret the consolidation but he...

Back to BlackBerry or how anyone uses Android as a phone is beyond me
I gave up my BlackBerry Q10 a few months ago. The keyboard started double typing, producing multiple letters for certain keystrokes. I replaced the keyboard myself and was very proud of the mixed black and white look I created by installing a white keyboard...

Key feature in Android is missing. Apple's iOS has it. I plan to buy an iPhone 6. At that point my Moto X goes up for sale, though I love all its other features

Will the last BlackBerry user please turn out the lights?
I just couldn't take it anymore. After replacing my keyboard on my Blackberry Q10, the headphone jack failed. I'm done.
