Blackberry RIM (Research in Motion) is a Smart phone manufacturing Canadian firm operating since 1999. It is currently the fourth most popular smart phone with 11.7% market share of the world behind Ericsson, Google and Apple. Blackberry started as the market leader introducing the push e-mail, mobile telephone, text messaging, internet faxing, web browsing and other wireless information services back in 2003. It started off as a hardcore professional smart phone manufacturer and soon gained commendable publicity worldwide. Lately Blackberry RIM has been declining significantly and losing its market share especially to Android and iOS. In this blog I’ll talk about the reasons which led to its downfall and we’ll see if BlackBerry has any chance of survival in the coming time.

Zong has emerged as the fastest growing telecommunications network in Pakistan. Its recent partnership with the most reputed football club of the world, Manchester United, is changing its perception of Chinese brand . Zong, still has to leverage this partnership that is extended to three years agreement.
Zong revealed to throw surprises to football/ManU fans on its official facebook page. Facebook status reads as, "Close to the edge, Red, Sounds of the surprise. Be prepared!"
The decision to sign an agreement with a football club in a society who has intense devotion for cricket is somehow a risk. On contrary, over-zealous niche of football fans cannot be neglected here. I find them the opinion makers from middle, upper-middle and elites of Pakistan. Also, as an opportunist, it is the time to penetrate football in athletic souls of Pakistani youth.
What would be Zong's surprise now? Campaigning with Manchester United players or a football thematic product?
Make sure it will be a huge surprise!

Enough said about bringing a revolution. In this huge pile of 170 million people everyone loves to talk about bringing a “Change” or a “Revolution” in country but nobody actually knows how to bring one and how to change the country’s situation. That’s been our dilemma lately, we like bitching about our system our politicians but we really don’t know what can we do to make an impact as an individual. No offence but we are equally as bad as our corrupt politicians because we, like them, only talk about changes and policies but we don’t really plunge into anything to make things happen and that includes myself.
Pakistan is on the verge of its worst traumas. Country is running into losses with bad debts, below par living standards and more than 40% still living under the poverty line. Economy is jeopardy, chaos is on the rise and bombings have been a tradition lately. The country still stands where it was in 1947 or I won’t be wrong if I say that Pakistan is at an even worse condition than it was in 1947 because, in 47’ at least we had people who were hungry for a scintillating future. They were united and wanted to cruise this sinking ship in the right direction to make it a successful, peaceful homeland for Pakistanis. But look what we have here; agonizingly frustrated dark era.
Well this is what we have been crying over for so many years but unfortunately for some inexplicable reason we haven’t been able to bring about a change. Now I ask why? We have been facing the same problem from the last 64 years; constitution has been broken more than once, resources not been captivated, economy has been declining consistently but still by hook or by crook one idiot replaces the other to run this country making amendments according to his wish and we bow down to them cursing them in our hearts and waiting for the next idiot, who for some odd reasons always looks like the only hope but as the time goes we start remembering the last one and after some comparisons we come to the conclusion,” Pehle wala banda hi theek tha.” For our great history full of good deeds even God has been giving signs by earthquakes, floods and most recently dengue to the country that we are surely topping the list of detesters.
Starting with the dead spirit of our nation we don’t need a wakeup call now because we have had many. There is the need to really prove that actions speak louder than words because we now need someone to stand up. Imran khan is a reasonable guy, no doubts he is the best we have right now but in my opinion even he is not the one who can really bring a “Revolution” but certainly he can bring some good changes and can be the first step towards the prosper Pakistan. We need to individually help his good cause. He needs to really target the internal affairs first rather than talking about external affairs too much. Drones, US will automatically come to an end when we will have a good system through good people.
System won’t change on its own since it’s something intangible which is directly influenced by people and here we need to change ourselves to change the system. Maybe start following the traffic signals, at least be a Good citizen first then you might add fuel to the fire of bringing a revolution or a change. Do your work honestly and play your part in making the economy of the country stronger. One thing is for sure, bringing a “CHANGE” doesn’t mean that you have to come out on streets dissing the politicians or others. These politicians are not called from anywhere else, they are the ones picked by us. Don’t blame them; blame yourself for not Voting for the right candidate. Use this most powerful tool given to you as the rightful citizen of Pakistan in the right way; it’s your duty to VOTE.
I would end this debate with a quote hoping that we would try to bring a change to our self first rather than waiting for the system and others to change, “When you can stand for what you believe in, you can change the world.”
I hope Pakistan will come up as the best country soon, I just hope that we will be able to live with our heads held high, I just hope because Hope is a good thing, maybe the best of things, and no good thing ever dies.
