Blackberry's Mystery Buyer and Apple vs. Samsung

The following video is from Thursday's MarketFoolery podcast, in which host Chris Hill, along with analysts Matt Argersinger and Jason Moser discuss the top business and investing stories of the day.

Shares of Blackberry (NASDAQ: BBRY  ) were up sharply after the company announced that a partner had ordered one million of Blackberry's Z10 phones. In this installment of MarketFoolery, our analysts speculate about Blackberry's mystery buyer, and weigh in on the growing competition between Samsung and Apple (NASDAQ: AAPL  ) .

There's no doubt that Apple is at the center of technology's largest revolution ever, and that longtime shareholders have been handsomely rewarded with over 1,000% gains. However, after the company's major backslide recently, there is a debate raging as to whether Apple remains a buy. The Motley Fool's senior technology analyst and managing bureau chief, Eric Bleeker, is prepared to fill you in on both reasons to buy and reasons to sell Apple, and what opportunities are left for the company (and your portfolio) going forward. To get instant access to his latest thinking on Apple, simply click here now.

The relevant video segment can be found between 0:00 and 12:45.

    A lot of hype today about Samsung for a phone that is not even on the market and no one knows when it will be released. Looks like the new blackberryZ10 which is now selling out worldwide has it beat hands down for functionality, innovation as well as price.

    One also wonders what would happen to Samsung were North Korea to invade.

    I prefer to stick to home grown products with a reputation for security and reliability.

    Why these guys wear earphones?

    Who is the guy in the middle?

    Why he said BB Z10 order was 10 when it was 1000,000?

    Did he just miss 5 zeros? 00000?

    Is the guy in the middle supposed to be the smartest because he was sarcastic the most about BlackBerry?

    Which school did these guys go to? especially the guy in the middle

    Are these guys paid for these videos?

    If yes, who pays them?

    If no, why they make these videos?

    Do these guys work overtime? since the video came after sunset.

    If yes, are they paid 1.5 regular pay?

    If no, are they working free?

    Do they work on Holidays?

    if yes, ...? if no, ...
