Following many struggles by the once powerful company, they just finally hits zero.
BlackBerry sold 200,000 of its own phones last year, but that might as well have been zero.
The onetime leader in smartphones sales made up zero percent — or 0.0482 percent — of global smartphone purchases in the fourth quarter of 2016.
The 17-year-old, blocky 3310 is best known for its durability. Now, it is getting a modern successor, according to VentureBeat's Evan Blass.
Blass reports that alongside its anticipated Nokia 3, 5 and 6 smartphones, HMD Global, the new company behind the Nokia name, will unveil a reworked 3310 at this month's Mobile World Congress.
BlackBerry has signed over (mostly) global rights to use its branding on phones to Chinese manufacturer TCL. The news follows an announcement by the Canadian company in September that it would stop making its own phones and concentrate instead on services and software.
Following the news all around that some operating systems will not have acces to Whatsapp after 2016 December 31, WhatsApp has been adding a slew of new features to the service for all of 2016, and it looks like more changes are coming.

Furthermore, Nokia has also confirmed that CEO Rajeev Suri will be speaking at MWC next year, and this rumoured smartphone is expected to be unveiled then.
Adopting a pet dog is always an exciting time and a life-long dream for many adults and kids. When you’re finally ready to bring a dog into the family, there are many decisions you need to make and many questions that wait to be answered. Keep in mind that these decisions regard not only the dog breed you plan to get, but also the questions of how your new pet dog will fit into your household. Here are some things to think about before bringing a puppy home.
What is your family like?
Nigeria cannot be left behind in the fast-paced world of technology especially when it comes to the future of labour. Even though jobs are being automated you have to significantly improve yourself to fit into this future. The truth is, if you don’t hone your skills, there will be millions of jobs and there will be no employable persons to do these jobs. Hence, Jumia Travel gathers 4 ways technology will change Nigeria’s workforce to get you prepared!
You will be a free agent
You don’t have to find work in the future. In fact, companies will call you to offer you jobs without applying. It is just by having a profile on professional social media accounts like LinkedIn and online. And also, you will not be attached to a particular organisation. Technology tools will make this possible.
You will work from home
Driving to the office daily and manoeuvring Lagos traffic is very hectic. In the future, you don’t need to do this, you will work from the comfort of the sofa of your home. Hence, your employees don’t need to be physically present in the office. Not that everyone will work from home but a large number of people will do.
Services will be outsourced
If you check your Samsung phone, you observe that different parts are made in different countries: the battery is made in China; the body parts are made in Finland and it is assembled in England. And this same device is made by Samsung. Outsourcing is less expensive. Companies now use outsourcing as a cheap way to get quick and cheap labour. This can only favour Nigeria if it develops its infrastructure and evolve a friendly environment. In fact, you find Nigerian companies outsourcing their services to international companies in Taiwan, Hong Kong and China. Technology is key in making this work.
Skills development and training will change due to automation
Many companies are looking for ways to cut cost. Hence, they have embraced automation. These companies will still need persons who will manage these automated services. This may force workers to go for skills development and training. In fact, Nigerian universities must realise we are no longer in the 1960s and they have to overhaul their syllabus to accommodate these new realities tech has introduced.
7 Must Know Tips For House Hunting In Lagos
When you are in the city of Lagos, you are told to shine your eyes (be smart and observant). Lagosians don’t say this slang for fun. It is because if you dare to laggard, you will have yourself to blame. Same goes for persons who are house hunting in the city.
From time immemorial, starting a business has always been a monumental task. It is not for the fainthearted nor is it for those who aren’t dogged. And this won’t change anytime soon.
Regardless, you will find Nigerians who are dogged and who have the entrepreneurial tenacity or spirit running from pillar to post searching for jobs. Besides, even those who have jobs are no better. They always have an excuse for not starting a business on their own. Jumia Travel shares some of these pretty inexcusable excuses.

Apple today began automatically downloading macOS Sierra to Macs that have yet to upgrade to the new operating system, taking a step that rival Microsoft was criticized for last year.
Although the upgrade to macOS 10.12 will automatically download to eligible Macs, it will not automatically install. Instead, users must authorize the upgrade after being notified that it has been retrieved and is ready to install. Users may also decline the upgrade at that same notification.
This marks a change from past practice for the Mac's operating system, formerly dubbed "OS X" but now labeled "macOS."
