Out of tune ad ballad draws few fans

Well, Research in Motion ... er BlackBerry, Ltd. (TSE:BB) finally pushed its QNX based BlackBerry 10 platform out the door.  It's celebrating by releasing another interesting YouTube video (Is it an ad? We don't know!). 

Some are questioning BlackBerry's judgement in continuing to post such strange advertising pitches to its developers account.  One user "Tron5500" writes, "Come on blackberry ! Your scaring away all your potential customers..."

And Calum Redhead writes, "Is this a joke?"

Another user types "awkward", while another commenter quips, "wow this is just absolutely horrible. i want those 3min of my life back."


The song lyrics are as follows:

At last my love / has come along / our lonely days are over / now for one last little song / At last / All the promise has come true / Your games and apps / Are in the storefront / On our new platform / Built for you / At last / Two new devices good to go / Complete with legendary keyboards / Blackberry Balance Hub and Flow / At last / A new beginning a new start / This is gonna be a blast / Blackberry 10 at last.

... just in case you BlackBerry fans want to do a cover or something.

If you are referring to DailyTech, they have been having issues for weeks. It was only yesterday that Chrome blocked the site for me, but SiteAdvisor has been posting warnings and blocking content for a few months.

It seems to be related to the ads. A few times I have seen the page running full blast on the processor and had to reload it to get the issues to go away. I also found one ad was constantly trying to access data from outside its iFrame, which would throw an exception. The ad would catch the exception and try the same thing again, resulting in 100% processor load on one core and an ever growing memory foot print.
