Finding the unjustly homeless, and teaching them to write insipid feel-good tech articles.

Homeless
Every day driving down Silicon Valley in your chauffered limousine or Uber cab you just might catch a glimpse of a certain species of human known as "the homeless." Some mentally gone, some drunk, some just asking for microtransactions. However, I like to think that I, and I alone, can see the rare times when there is a homeless person who does not deserve to be homeless.

Can the BlackBerry Z10 break the Apple/Android dynasty, or will that goal end up a cold case?
