And with that, I'll turn the call over to John.

John Chen -- Executive Chairman & Chief Executive Officer

Thank you. Thank you, Tim. Good afternoon, everybody, and thanks for joining the call today. One correction, I think all the number -- all the revenue number we use will be GAAP based, correct?

Tim Foote -- Investor Relations

Yes.

John Chen -- Executive Chairman & Chief Executive Officer

You said non-GAAP numbers. It is actually -- the revenue number we'll refer to, all GAAP based number. Okay.

Starting with our headlines. This quarter, the business performed well with revenue for all the three business segments, beating expectations. The Cyber Security business unit delivered strong sequential billings and revenue growth. The IoT business unit performed better than expected with strong design-related activities, partially offset -- offsetting the impact of the global chip shortage on production royalties. Licensing revenue reflects the restriction on monetization activity from the ongoing patent sale negotiations, which I will talk about more in detail shortly. Licensing and Other revenue came in slightly stronger than expected.

This quarter BlackBerry generated positive operating cash flow. Following the strengthening of our IoT leadership team in Q1, we have appointed John Giamatteo to lead our Cyber Security business unit, beginning or commencing November -- October 4, sorry, commencing October 4, which is a couple of weeks from now. John was previously the McAfee President and Chief Revenue Officer, running the enterprise and consumer cyber security businesses. This new appointment completes the refocus of our software business, into two business units, I'll cover this in more detail later. Excuse me.

I'll start my review with the IoT business unit. Revenue came in at $40 million, which is better than expected primarily due to ongoing strength in the design activities area. Gross margin remained strong at 83%. IoT ARR increased to $89 million. As you are all aware, the auto industry experienced some significant headwinds in Q2 due to the global semiconductor chip shortage. This impacted production volume, particularly in North America. For instance, a major customers of ours reported 700,000 large units of production in calendar Q2. Production-based royalty are historically the largest single component of our QNX revenue. However, a significant portion of revenue is also generated from design activities, prior to the vehicle entering production. This part of the business remains very vibrant, and we continue to generate strong development seat and professional services revenues. As a result, total IoT revenue in the quarter was better than expected. Furthermore, these design wins will translate into future production-based royalties.

As we look ahead to the rest of the year, we continue to see the headwind for our vehicle production. The problem is future has shifted from surprise of wafers to more of a back-end assembly and testing issues, largely due to the spike in COVID cases in Asia, as well as some of the accidents going on in Asia, like some of their plants had fire for example. Feedback from OEM about the impact on production volumes in the second half is somewhat mix and constantly evolving. For example, Daimler recently indicated they're expecting a lessening impact by Q4, excuse me, sorry. And Volkswagen, on the other hand, see challenges persisting into 2023.

In terms of outlook, we continue to see the past quarter as the low point, but significant headwinds are expected to continue into Q4 and -- Q3 and Q4 and perhaps even beyond that, albeit with a sequentially decreasing impact. The impact of the chip shortage on QNX royalty revenue is expected to be buffer somewhat by ongoing strength in design activities. We are comfortable with the current IoT revenue consensus, meaning the full year revenue outlook remains unchanged.

As mentioned, despite of the supply chain issue QNX continue to win new design at a very solid pace. In the quarter, we had 23 new design wins, with seven in auto and 16 in the general embedded market, we call it, GEM. Because of our market presence and leading technology, we are a trusted go-to supplier and market leader in auto. Furthermore, we're delighted to announce that we now have design wins with 24 of the world's Top 25 electric vehicle automakers, as measured by volume. Having been selected, most recently by Daimler as part of their design -- as part of their EV design. This is up from the 23 of 25 we had last quarter. These 24 OEMs, between them represent 82% of global EV market -- production, sorry, 82% of global EV production. This demonstrate a leading position we have in this very fast growing part of the auto industry.

I'd like to expand on a couple of design wins to get investors more colors as to why QNX was chosen, and why we are the industry leader. The first design, which was a automotive tier 1, that is building full digital cockpit and gateway solution for a Chinese EV OEM. You see the QNX real-time operating system and hypervisor. QNX technology is well known and trusted in China, in the Chinese automotive industry given its reputation for safety and security. QNX was chosen above software as a solution from both domestic and multinational -- and as well as multinational competitors. Production is expected in 2022, which is next year and run for around five years. The second is a leading Japanese industrial robotics manufacturer that's also happen do be a new logo to a BlackBerry. The customer select QNX for an autonomous 3D robot warehousing system ahead of the leading competitors. QNX was chosen for its functional safety credentials. Production is expected to start this year and continue for five years. Other notable design wins this quarter in auto included instrument, cluster and ADAS systems. In a GEM space, design wins including medical diagnostic, industrial process control and thermal control system for a power plant.

I'm going to shift to Jarvis. During the quarter, we launched Jarvis 2.0. This is a SaaS version of our software composition analytics tool, which was previously offer as a bespoke service engagement. Jarvis 2.0, which include a market-leading binary code scanner is an important part of how BlackBerry can assist customers to achieve compliance with the recent SBOM executive order, secure bill of material -- Software Bill of Materials, sorry, Software Bill of Materials executive orders, mandated by the Biden administration.

Moving to a brief update on IVY. We are pleased with the ongoing progress being made. Both BlackBerry and AWS has significant resources allocated to project, and our timelines remains on track. We are on schedule to release an early access version of the production in October, in the product side. We are scheduled to release an early access version of the product in October that will enable further engagement with OEMs, and also allow demonstration at CES in January. This version will be available to certain ecosystem partners to begin actively building application on IVY. And speaking of applications, for IVY to be embraced by automakers we recognized that it is important to demonstrate IVY value to them.

Following on from a AI-driven battery management apps that we announced last quarter, we announced another application that we will be built on IVY. This new application enable in-vehicle payments and is being delivered through a partnership with Car IQ, a California-based start-up. The application will use direct access to the sensor data and the edge compute, two of the IVY's key differentiators to produce a unique digital fingerprint for their vehicle. This will allow authentication of payments for items such as, fuels, tolls, parking services, etc., without a need of a free credit cards or other traditional payment methods. This opens up the possibility for OEM to participate in a new revenue streams, and it's another of the many potential applications that IVY will enable. In summary, IVY continues to progress nicely.

Now let me turn to Cyber Security. This quarter, the business unit delivered strong sequential billings and revenue growth. Revenue was $120 million. Gross margin came in at 59%. ARR was $364 million. Dollar-based net retention was 95%. As we mentioned earlier, John Giamatteo will be joining BlackBerry to lead the Cyber Security business unit, taking over from Tom Eacobacci, who was the Acting General Manager. John brings with him many years of cyber security industry experience. During his six years as President and Chief Revenue Officer at McAfee, he delivered both double-digit growth and margin expansion for the enterprise, the SMB, as well as the consumer divisions. John will build on the progress that has been made in recent quarters with the Cyber Security business unit go-to-market engine, and will also direct old product development, and business unit strategy. Tom Eacobacci has decided to pursue other opportunities, and will leave BlackBerry at the end of October. The addition of John to the team completes the split of the software and services business into two market focus business unit. Both IoT and cybers are targeted with driving growth and with it shareholder value. The two business units will report directly to me.

As mentioned, this was a good quarter. Although, it's still work for team to do, there's a few outstanding area that I feel that I'd like to share with you about. This quarter we saw further growth in pipeline for our cyber security product, especially for the new logo customers. Pipeline grew strongly for BlackBerry Gateway, as zero trust network access product launched last quarter. To help realize this increased pipeline, investment in our direct sales force, in particularly the hiring of quota-carrying sales head continues. We're also making further progress in the channel as illustrated by a 32% sequential growth in the channel billings this quarter. New partner program has also helped significantly increase both channel driven pipeline generation and a new logo billings, mainly in the North Americas arena.

We also have seen robust growth in business through managed service -- managed security service providers or MSSPs. You may recall that during the Q2 earnings call a year ago, we targeted using MNSP -- MSSPs, sorry, to quickly scale our guarded managed service offering. Today one of these partners, I'm happy to report, manage more than 100,000 endpoints using BlackBerry Cyber products.

I'd like to take a closer look at some wins during the quarter that demonstrate why customer chose -- are choosing BlackBerry for their cyber security needs. The first customer is one of the Top 10 automakers in the world. This customer select our Protect EPP and Optics EDR solution, following a competitive bake off in which we went head-to-head with CrowdStrike and Carbon Black. The customer selected BlackBerry due to our near 100% malware detection rate, our lightweight engine and flexible deployment options, both in the cloud as well as the stand-alone factory network. The second is a Fortune 100 financial services company. BlackBerry displace Microsoft Defender with Protect and Optics. The company selected us, particularly, for our performance on macOS. The third is where we have continued success within the Australian state government agencies. This quarter, we saw Protect offtakes in our ThreatZERO consulting services into a number of agency displacing predominantly legacy incumbents that included Trend Micro and Symantec. The customer chose BlackBerry for our next-generation prevention for its technology.

On the industry recognition front, SE Labs, a leading independent research firm based in London, has performed rigorous set of tests on our EPP and EDR products, Protect and Optics. This breach test differ from their quarterly endpoint test, rather than simply loading no malware onto an endpoint, which typically masking an ability of traditional signature-based vendors to prevent zero-day threats that breach test in includes instead of [Indecipherable] real-time, real-world hacking tactics. They have probably comprehensive techniques to evade our defense, and concluded that Protect and Optics provide compete prevention, complete detection, as well as zero false positive. A link to the full report could be found on our Investor Relations webpage. This third-party validation of our product, not just our EDP -- EPP, but also our EDR demonstrate how we have successfully closed the product gap to competitors with recent product launches.

The market is now recognizing some of the unique differentiated abilities of our cyber products, one of which is a maturity of our AI engine. As in the previous quarters, we are seeing new malware and ransomware hitting the headline on an almost daily basis. Our AI engine, the most mature in the industry continues to provide zero-day prevention against the host of these threats. In the quarter, our product successfully brought new profile ransomware, such as Hive, LockBit, Ragnar Locker, and many more before they could do any damages. BlackBerry Cylance AI engine is firmly focused on preventing our customers on being breached, whereas some of the leading competitors instead focus on showing customer all the ways that system -- on a different ways that their system could be accessed.

On the UEM front, we will continue to invest in our roadmap delivering enhancements that add most value to customers. We recently announced that the enterprise can now benefit from BlackBerry leading security, while enjoying a seamless and native user experience with Microsoft 365 productivity apps. This is enabled by additional integration between BlackBerry UEM and Microsoft 365, primarily through the Azure Active Directory Conditional Access. This is part of the latest version of the UEM new series, which was released this month, earlier this month that is. New series also provide zero-day support for Android 12 and iOS 15.

This past quarter, we secured important new year renewals with government agencies, such as IRS, the Department of Homeland Security, the US Marine Corps, the US Army Corps of Engineers, the UK Ministry of Defense, the US -- United States Air Force, as well as leading enterprise such as General Dynamics and Mariner [Phonetic]. We also won a number of new logos such as, French National Institute for Criminal Research and the Tel Aviv Stock Exchange.

With continued growth in pipeline, couple of investment in our direct and channel sales, the outlook of the Cyber Security business unit is for sequential billings growth for the remaining of the fiscal year. This is expected to lead to modest sequential revenue growth due to the subscription model. The full year outlook remains, as before, at the lower end of $495 million to $515 million range.

Turning now to licensing. As I mentioned earlier, negotiation to sell the portion of the patent portfolio related to mobile devices, messaging and wireless networking, are ongoing. And we have made significant progress since our last earnings call, including preliminary agreement of many of the key items -- of the key terms of the deal. We expect to execute definitive agreement this quarter. Closing the transaction will be subject to a normal regulatory review. Normal -- naturally, given this backdrop, we will continue to eliminate monetization activities for the remaining of the fiscal year, therefore, revenue for both Q3 and Q4 is expected to be similar to Q2, which is at $10 million per quarter. While we expect the sales to conclude essentially, the process has taken longer than we expected or anticipated. Should it not conclude this quarter, we have other options, including additional interested parties. We will update investors on the material -- on any of the material developments in a timely manners.

So let me now hand over to Steve to further review the financials. Steve?

Steve Rai -- Chief Financial Officer

Thank you, John. My comments on our financial performance for the second quarter will be in non-GAAP terms, unless otherwise noted. Please refer to the supplemental table in the press release for the GAAP and non-GAAP details.

We delivered second quarter total Company revenue of $175 million. Second quarter total Company gross margin was 65%. Our non-GAAP gross margin excludes stock compensation expense of $1 million. Second quarter operating expenses were $143 million. Our non-GAAP operating expenses exclude $32 million in amortization of acquired intangibles, $11 million in stock compensation expense, and $67 million fair value adjustment on the convertible debentures, which is a non-cash accounting adjustment from the large swings, driven by market and trading conditions.

The second quarter non-GAAP operating loss was $30 million, and the second quarter non-GAAP net loss was $33 million. Non-GAAP earnings per share was a $0.06 loss in the quarter. Our adjusted EBITDA was negative $14 million this quarter, excluding the non-GAAP adjustments previously mentioned, as we continue to invest in both our cyber and IoT businesses to drive top line growth.

I will now provide a breakdown of our revenue in the quarter. Cyber Security revenue was $120 million, and IoT revenue was $40 million. Software product revenue remained in the range of 80% to 85% of the total, with professional services comprising the balance. The recurring portion of software product revenue was approximately 80%. Licensing and Other revenue was $15 million. As John mentioned, our IP monetization activities remained limited, while negotiations for the potential sale continues.

Now moving to our balance sheet and cash flow performance. Total cash, cash equivalents and investments were $772 million as at August 31, 2021, an increase of $3 million during the quarter. Our net cash position increased to $407 million. Second quarter free cash flow was $10 million. Cash generated from operations was $12 million, and capital expenditures were $2 million.

That concludes my comments. I'll now turn it back to John.

John Chen -- Executive Chairman & Chief Executive Officer

Thank you, Steve. Before we move to Q&A, I'd like to summarize this past quarter. I'm pleased with how the business performed, beating revenue expectations for all the businesses and delivered positive cash flow. The structure of the two market focused business, cyber business unit is already delivering results and we're adding additional relevant industry experience. We are encouraged by the growth in cyber security pipeline and continue to invest in sales technology. QNX design activities remains very strong, and we are very -- weathering the impact of the chip shortage as well. We are now also making good progress with IVY.

And with that I'd like, actually, the operator to open the line for Q&A, please.

Questions and Answers:

Operator

And we will now begin the question-and-answer session. [Operator Instructions] Our first question today will be from Mike Walkley with Canaccord. Your line is open.

Mike Walkley -- Canaccord -- Analyst

Great.

John Chen -- Executive Chairman & Chief Executive Officer

Hi, Mike.

Mike Walkley -- Canaccord -- Analyst

Thanks. Hi, John. How are you doing?

John Chen -- Executive Chairman & Chief Executive Officer

Very good.

Mike Walkley -- Canaccord -- Analyst

Thanks for all the updates and the guidance. I guess my first question for you is, your guidance arguably implies an aggressive second half outlook, just to reach the full year guidance. Can you walk us through what needs to go right for you to achieve that guidance for stronger second half?

John Chen -- Executive Chairman & Chief Executive Officer

Yeah. Thank you. Thank you for the question. So there are some assumptions that let me break it down a little bit. Licensing, of course, we already explained. So I don't have to go much detail of that. I think we're going to have $10 million a quarter for the next two quarters, the second half that is. each of the quarter. And it had something to do with the fact that we are not going to monetize, or push on the monetization effort and licensing effort, while we're going through this negotiation on selling the portion of the patents that is on those areas of business that we no longer actively involved with. Regarding IoT, the only wildcard, so to speak, is the chip shortage and the impact of that. From all the indicators, all the ups and downs and give and take, and we spoke to a lot of them, the OEMs that North America seems to be getting better in Q3, Q4, as compared to Q2. Good -- a good example will be Ford believe they could -- they are improving and GM also is, although they're going to shut down a couple of factories in Q3. But I think from by magnitude, it's improving versus the first half of the year. So North America, you see it going back, improving the situation. Europe, however, still had about 10% to 15% impact of the production, and so is Asia Pacific. So, net of all that, if we are in that range, without any dramatic departure then the numbers that we expected in the second half still holds. And a big part of that, of course is, we are winning some very strong design wins that that bring us more developer seats revenue and then as well as professional services revenue. So I'm pretty comfortable with that.

On cyber, it really is a function of one thing. I mean, I got two consideration in there. One thing, the major part is, we have a lot of salespeople join us in the last couple of, two quarters, three quarters. We have a pretty young pipeline. The activities in the pipeline has been very strong in the last quarter and two. So putting that together, it's actually a good thing, except that it might take time to ramp up. And so the rate of conversion of the pipeline with a newer sales force, it's the only wildcard. And it is something that we have to manage very carefully. But the good news there is, even if it takes longer, these things -- these businesses don't tend to go away. So we're -- so that's the assumptions that we made in our forecast. The other one is, in Q4, we've got a couple of large government deals with some of the government, especially in North America. Some of those needs to come to fruition. And then we sort of -- and then we expect them to. So those are the basis of our forecast. Yes. Second half seems to be a bigger number, a stronger number than Q -- the first half. That's correct.

Mike Walkley -- Canaccord -- Analyst

Great. Thank you. And just my follow-up question. Congrats on adding John Giamatteo to the team. Is he going to run kind of the same playbook that was getting put in place for all the team? Or do you expect further changes with the rotation in such key position, and does that impact your guidance thoughts at all.

John Chen -- Executive Chairman & Chief Executive Officer

It's slightly early to tell, but I'm dying to hear his experience of growth. Because he was being able to grow both the consumer business and enterprise business at McAfee, when he was running the -- where he was the President in McAfee and the CRO. So I'm sure he will make some changes. I'm doubtful that everything will remain exactly the same. On the other hand, the investment that we made in channel, the investment we made in pipeline, the investment we make in partners, and the engineering, and the investment we make in hiring more sales reps. And we have a -- a couple of quarters ago, we hired a pretty good professional services. I'm sure that he will take full advantage of those.

Mike Walkley -- Canaccord -- Analyst

Great. Thanks for taking my questions.

John Chen -- Executive Chairman & Chief Executive Officer

All right. Thank you.

Your next question comes from Daniel Chan with TD Securities. Your line is open.

John Chen -- Executive Chairman & Chief Executive Officer

Hey, Daniel.

Daniel Chan -- TD Securities -- Analyst

Hey, John.

Steve Rai -- Chief Financial Officer

Hi, Dan.

Daniel Chan -- TD Securities -- Analyst

You mentioned earlier that, typically your QNX revenue has a higher mix of royalty versus development. Should we expect a higher mix of development for the next couple of years as electronics and software development become ramped up at a lot of these OEMs?

John Chen -- Executive Chairman & Chief Executive Officer

I think you should expect, probably for this year, and I think -- I don't think in the future years it will continue to be the same. The reason I say this is because remember, I should be seeing some of the production revenue coming from ADAS assuming the supply shortages issue, it started to improve. I mean it had to improve over time. As a huge industry, and semiconductor -- for the whole semiconductor industry, auto is not really that big, it's not 100%. Obviously, it's probably like more or like 15% of the market. So we will address that. And so I expect that our royalty rate to go back into some kind of growth, especially with all the design wins that we had in the last couple of, two years, three years.

Daniel Chan -- TD Securities -- Analyst

Okay, that's helpful. Can you remind us how you sell these development seats? Is it more like a perpetual license, or is there a recurring proportion to that as well?

John Chen -- Executive Chairman & Chief Executive Officer

It's more like a perpetual license. It's selling seats.

Daniel Chan -- TD Securities -- Analyst

Okay. And do you kind of get like a 20% maintenance?

John Chen -- Executive Chairman & Chief Executive Officer

Yeah. We get upgrade and maintenance on it. Yes.

Daniel Chan -- TD Securities -- Analyst

Okay. One more if I may, Cyber Security ARR was flat sequentially, while you've been saying that the pipeline has been growing. Just wondering when we're going to start seeing that metric start to pick up. Whether there is some seasonality built into [Indecipherable].

John Chen -- Executive Chairman & Chief Executive Officer

Yeah. That's a good question. I asked that question also and they always give me the product mix answer, that some of them we took earlier upfront because the Rev Rec policy. I expect for this full sales -- and I've said it in the past by the way, so it's very consistent. This year or next year is where I would see -- we are -- I'm going to see some -- hoping to see some strong growth of all the investment we have made, the pipeline growing into new sales and so forth.

Daniel Chan -- TD Securities -- Analyst

Okay, thank you.

John Chen -- Executive Chairman & Chief Executive Officer

Sure.

Your next question comes from Paul Treiber with RBC Capital Markets. Your line is open.

John Chen -- Executive Chairman & Chief Executive Officer

Hi, there.

Paul Treiber -- RBC Capital Markets -- Analyst

Hi, John. First question on the patent sale, I know you can't say much just given you're in the middle of negotiations. But in your statement, you mentioned that the negotiations are going well. But then you also indicated that if it doesn't close, you have other options. Just could you bridge between those two statements, because they're actually quite far apart from a tone perspective.

John Chen -- Executive Chairman & Chief Executive Officer

That's a good one. I'm glad you caught it. Yes, it is going well. I fully expect to finish this this quarter. But I'm tired of waiting. I know a lot of our investors are too. It is -- I'm not blaming anything on anybody, and may be we have too many lawyers assigned to this, sorry, lawyers, I doubted you. But the key is -- it's a complex and it's big portfolio. It is rightfully so that they have done a lot of due diligence, and those things are now completed by the way, all the due diligence are completed. And then we have a lot of time span on definitive agreement negotiation. And then by and large, with the exception of one or two items, we're done with that. And then we have the purchase agreement. And so it just for me, it's been since last Christmas. It's coming up, the next Christmas. So, I basically kind of draw the line in the sand and say, I can just stop licensing the business to either move on one direction or the other. And then there are other interested parties in calling. And so we are not entertaining them because, as you recall during a period of time, not long in the past, we were in exclusive discussion with these people. So I can't really entertain a third-party. So my only point is, if you want to put percentage, waiting percentage, I put 80%, 20%. I put 80%, we get it done this quarter. Does that help?

Paul Treiber -- RBC Capital Markets -- Analyst

Yeah, that's very helpful. I wasn't going to ask for percentage, but I'm glad you threw it out. Switching back to the business, in regards to 24 out of 25 EV OEMs, how do we think about the magnitude or size of these wins? Like you find like EV is the -- the ASP is higher than a gasoline vehicle, is that what you're seeing, generally?

John Chen -- Executive Chairman & Chief Executive Officer

No. Usually to ASP ties to functionality. If you look at functionality like IDI, it's usually low single digit dollars for royalty, but if you look at ADAS and clusters, they are usually high single-digit pushing into double-digit per car. So it's not gasoline versus electric vehicle. And so the electric vehicle have one advantage, which is where -- which is in a more component of highly complex ECUs. When you have highly complex ECU, it does two things for us. Number one, because we have the highest certification in security and safety, when you have a high complex ECU, like a compute engine in the car, they tend to go after that most secure and most safe production -- product. So we have an actual advantage to win it. That's number one. Number two, they used to -- they tend to use very complex algorithm and that will help us sometimes selling more than even one copy for a ECU. So -- and when you sell these complex ECUs, and with ADAS or clusters, or hypervisor, typically the ASP is on a higher end. So it's really more function that drive ASP versus EV or gas.

Paul Treiber -- RBC Capital Markets -- Analyst

Okay, that's helpful. And then one follow-up. It seems like BlackBerry QNX has good traction in Chinese EV market. Could you speak to, like there is a pricing for that market. Does it materially different than other OEMs, or other geographies for QNX?

John Chen -- Executive Chairman & Chief Executive Officer

No, no material difference. So there's also other things you need to be aware that a lot of those Chinese players actually had design center in the United States. So the market price is the market price, because they all -- a lot of them are all in the US. But of course, we have a Chinese team and then deal with the customers over there, and the factories over there and so forth. But they're not materially different.

Paul Treiber -- RBC Capital Markets -- Analyst

Okay, thank you. I'll pass the line.

Your next question comes from Todd Coupland with CIBC. Your line is open.

John Chen -- Executive Chairman & Chief Executive Officer

Hello there.

Todd Coupland -- CIBC -- Analyst

Hey there, John. Nice to talk to you. I'll follow-up on the EV line of questioning. So that 25th OEM, which you don't have, your role is bringing out new vehicles, many new vehicles that are selling well at lower prices, etc. What are the chances, if you're getting into that OEM?

John Chen -- Executive Chairman & Chief Executive Officer

My team promised me, through up and down they're working it. And so I'm hopeful that I -- the fact that they typically like to do compete vertical integrations, it still require work from us. But we're working it.

Todd Coupland -- CIBC -- Analyst

Yeah, OK. And then also on the patent sale, there has been press articles that in the trade press that you more or less sort of settled on a price, and it was really the complexity of all the participants in a, I guess, a buyer's group, if you will. Any comments on whether that is indeed correct, and it really is these details with the various parties that has yet to get worked out. Thanks a lot.

John Chen -- Executive Chairman & Chief Executive Officer

I can't comment on ongoing negotiation, because it doesn't help me or whoever. I would say to you that that we have settled on the price. And that I would agree -- I would confirm. Everything else, I can't really comment on.

Todd Coupland -- CIBC -- Analyst

Okay, all right. That's great. Appreciate the color. Thanks a lot.

John Chen -- Executive Chairman & Chief Executive Officer

Absolutely, absolutely.

Your next question comes from Paul Steep with Scotia. Your line is open.

John Chen -- Executive Chairman & Chief Executive Officer

Hi, there.

Paul Steep -- Scotia -- Analyst

Hi, John. So two quick ones. The first one, maybe talk to us about how you're thinking about monetizing IVY and how those thoughts have evolved. And then I'll toss it my quick follow-ups.

John Chen -- Executive Chairman & Chief Executive Officer

I'm sorry, how they monetize IVY? Oh, IVY. Okay. Well, there is -- it's a work in progress, but I have a lot of ideas. First of all, I wanted something that are usage base and recurring base. And that's the revenue model. And if you look at what IVY really is, it's a collateral sensor data, the ability to analyze that push you on the edge, put it on the cloud. Apply AI to it, and feed it back to the OEM or application providers. And one of the reason why we spend so much time on the application side, a quarter ago, we have a intelligent battery management systems for performance and for managing anything regarding to -- related to a battery and the usage of it. And this past quarter, we turned our attention to have an application that turn your vehicle into a wallet basically. And it's a huge market for those of you who follow this because the fleet cars -- especially the trucks and the Amazon delivery trucks or the FedEx, or US UPS, or cargoes, the commercial trucks, they -- if we do equipped [Phonetic] with IVY, there are tons of sensing data between security and productivity, and the ability to not having to use of third-party to do payment and so forth, are all very positive and cost effective solution from the truck owner, and a truck runners. They also, as I mentioned earlier, the OEM has always also find -- try to find ways to enrich their source of revenue after they sold the car. And this will -- this could IVY may be able to facilitate some of these applications. So that's kind of where I'm very focused on to create usage base, whether it is app base or functional base use cases. And in some cases I could share with the third parties that could share with banks. I could share the revenue with OEMs. And these are all possibility. So that's how we focus on monetizing IVY.

Paul Steep -- Scotia -- Analyst

Great. Thanks. Steve, two quick follow-ups, I guess, for yourself, or Steve. First one would just relate to your commentary, but continuing to invest in sales force. Should we think of the numbers that you've sort of added this quarter and aggregate dollars sort of reflective throughout the remainder of the year? And then the other sort of clarification, not asking you about a pending transaction, but if the patent business didn't exist at the BlackBerry, how should we think about stranded cost in the SG&A line? Or is it effectively pure profit that we just see maybe move off, if that business was not to be there. Thank you.

John Chen -- Executive Chairman & Chief Executive Officer

That's great. That's very good question. I need to get clarification. The first question -- what was it? Could you repeat your first question?

Paul Steep -- Scotia -- Analyst

Yeah. You've talked about adding more sales headcount, I'm just sort of looking at the pacing of what you've done in terms of investments. Is that already sort of in the envelope, or you're thinking about stepping on the gas a lot harder than your EV, as you continue to win deals?

John Chen -- Executive Chairman & Chief Executive Officer

Right, right. I -- we have made a -- thanks for the quick question. So, as you all know me, this -- I've been here for seven years, and I always been focused on making money, running a profitable business. And so, on the other hand, in the last year, I recognized that the business needs investment to step on the gas, we used to work. And so for the time being, and we had done that in the last two quarters, to three quarters. But for the time being, I'm not going to be so focus on loss versus profit as far as it's manageable, meaning that it's not going to be a wages, and it's not to [Indecipherable] lot of my cash, burning along my cash, then we are going to step on the gas and continue hiring and continue to increase. And the idea is, since we now have the products and we could generate a pipeline, if I could close the pipeline with more feet on the streets [Phonetic] and channel partners, and so forth, we will may [Phonetic] grow the business and then that will then create a profit that I needed to offset a very profitable source of revenue, which was licensing. So, and licensing, as you all know, I'm not getting an evaluation of the licensing. That is the recognition of my stock price, and partly because this is a lumpy, and a lot of you have expressed that you actually don't know how to measure, valued at and you don't know how to think about the growth part of it. So that's all fair. So I believe that while we could -- while we have very fresh set of portfolios with good average life span in the portfolio that we should monetize at one time, take that proceeds to step on the gas and then invest into the cyber business, which we know there is a high growth. And we know we caught up in the product gap. And then also -- and hence grow IoT and invest in IVY, which is the future revenue source, which could be significant. And we have a big partner in Amazon there. So those are all, I believe, our positive value creation for BlackBerry.

Paul Steep -- Scotia -- Analyst

That helps. Thank you.

John Chen -- Executive Chairman & Chief Executive Officer

Sure.

BlackBerry is releasing a new 5G-enabled device with a physical keyboard in 2021


The BlackBerry smartphone from the early 2000s is making a comeback. 

The Texas-based mobile security company OnwardMobility and Foxconn subsidiary FIH Mobile Limited teamed up with Blackberry to announce that the flashback phone is rising from the ashes with 5G connectivity. 

The three companies said Wednesday that the new phone will still have a physical keyboard and will roll out in the first half of 2021. But few other details were announced. 

“BlackBerry smartphones are known for protecting communications, privacy, and data. This is an incredible opportunity for OnwardMobility to bring next-generation 5G devices to market with the backing of BlackBerry and FIH Mobile," said Peter Franklin, CEO of OnwardMobility, in a statement.

The last Blackberry phone, the Key2, was released in 2018 under China's TCL Communication. The $649 device also had a physical Qwerty keyboard instead of a touchscreen. 

Blackberry phones were once the go-to gadget for conducting business. The devices enabled you to fire off quick emails and messages using the keys and scrolling ball. But the Waterloo, Canada-based company fell out of favor with the launch of the iPhone in 2007, and the premium Samsung devices that followed.

BB gun

Air gun that uses metallic ball projectiles called BBs

For airguns firing non-spherical pellets, see Pellet gun. For airguns firing 6 mm plastic projectiles, see Airsoft gun.

BB pistol with CO2cartridges and BBs

A BB gun is a type of air gun designed to shoot metallic sphericalprojectiles called BBs (not to be confused with similar-looking bearing balls), which are approximately the same size as BB-sizeleadbirdshot used on shotguns (0.180 in or 4.6 mm in diameter). Modern BB guns usually have a smoothborebarrel with a 4.5 mm (0.177 in) caliber, and use steel balls that measure 4.3–4.4 mm (0.171–0.173 in) in diameter and 0.33–0.35 g (5.1–5.4 gr) in weight, usually zinc- or copper-plated for corrosion resistance. Some manufacturers still make the slightly larger traditional lead balls that weigh around 0.48–0.50 g (7.4–7.7 gr), which are generally intended for use in rifled barrels (due to lead having better malleability and exerting less wear on riflings).

The term "BB gun" is frequently used to describe airsoft guns, which shoot plastic pellets (also often incorrectly referred to as "BBs") that are larger (usually 6 mm or 0.24 in in diameter) but much less dense than metal BBs,[1] and have significantly lower ballistic performance. The term is also sometimes used incorrectly to describe a pellet gun, which shoots diabolo-shaped (not spherical) lead projectiles at higher power and velocity. Although some BB guns can also shoot pellets, the reverse situation is not true: steel BB balls have greater stiffness and are not meant to be shot from pellet guns, whose barrels are typically rifled and thus can get stuck (similar to a squib load in firearms) and lead to a damage or mechanical failure within the gun.

History[edit]

The term BB originated from the nomenclature of the size of lead shots used in a smoothboreshotgun. Size "BB" shots were normally 0.180 in (4.6 mm), but tended to vary considerably in size due to the loose tolerances in shotshells. The highest size shotgun pellet commonly used was named 00 or double ought and was used for hunting deer and thus called buckshot, while the smaller BB-sized shot was typically used to shoot small/medium-sized game birds and therefore was a birdshot.

In 1886, the Markham Air Rifle Company in Plymouth, Michigan produced the first wooden-construct spring-piston air rifle design as a youth training gun, and used the BB-size birdshot as the chosen ammunition. Two years later, the neighbouring Plymouth Air Rifle Company (later renamed Daisy Manufacturing Company in 1895) introduced the first full-metal airgun that also fired BB shots — the Daisy BB Gun, which became a very popular household name due to its successful marketing. Around 1900, Daisy changed their BB-size bore diameter to 0.175 in (4.4 mm), and began to market precision-made lead shot specifically for their BB guns. They called these "round shots", but the BB name was already well established, and most users continued calling their guns BB guns, and the projectiles as BB shots or just BBs.

Subsequently, the term BB became generic, and is used loosely referring to any small spherical projectiles of various calibers and materials. This includes bearing balls often utilized by anti-personnel mines, .177 caliber lead/steel shots used by air guns, plastic round balls (such as the pellets used by airsoft guns), small marbles and many others. It has become ubiquitous to refer to any steel ball, such as a BB, as a "ball bearing". However, BBs should not be confused with a ball bearing, which is a mechanical component using small internal rolling balls to reduce friction between moving parts of machines.

Operation[edit]

BB guns can use any of the operating mechanisms used for air guns. However, due to the inherent limited accuracy and short effective range of the projectile, only the simpler and less expensive mechanisms are generally used for guns designed to fire only BBs.[citation needed]

Because the strength of the steel BB does not allow it to be swaged with the low propelling force used to accelerate it through the barrel, BBs are slightly smaller (4.3 to 4.4 mm (0.171 to 0.173 in)) than the internal diameter of the barrel (4.5 mm (0.177 in)). This limits accuracy because little spin is imparted on the BB. It also limits range, because some of the pressurized gas used to accelerate the BB leaks around it and reduces the overall efficiency. Since a BB will easily roll unhindered down the barrel, it is common to find guns that use a magnet in the loading mechanism to hold the BB at the rear of the barrel until it is fired.[citation needed]

The traditional and still most common powerplant for BB guns is the spring-piston pump, usually patterned after a lever-action rifle or a pump-action shotgun. The lever-action rifle was the first type of BB gun, and still dominates the inexpensive youth BB gun market. The Daisy Model 25, modeled after a pump-action shotgun with a trombone pump-action mechanism, dominated the low-price, higher-performance market for over 50 years. Lever-action models generally have very low velocities, around 84 m/s (275 ft/s), a result of the weak springs used to keep cocking efforts low for use by youths. The Daisy Model 25 typically achieved the highest velocities of its day, ranging from 114 to 145 m/s (375 to 475 ft/s).[2]

Multiple-pump pneumatic guns are also common. Many pneumatic pellet guns provide the ability to use BBs as a cheaper alternative to lead shot. Some of these guns have rifled barrels, but the slightly undersized BBs do not swage in the barrel, so the rifling does not impart a significant spin. These are the types of guns that will benefit most from using precision lead BB shot. The pneumatic BB gun can attain much higher velocities than the traditional spring piston types.[citation needed]

The last common type of power for BB guns is compressed gas, most commonly the Powerlet cartridges. The powerlet is a disposable metal gas cylinder containing 12 grams (190 gr) of compressed carbon dioxide, with a self-contained valve to release the CO2 which expands to propel the BB. These are primarily used in BB pistols, and are capable of rapid firing unlike spring-piston or pneumatic types. A typical CO2 BB pistol uses a spring-loaded magazine to feed BBs, and a double-action trigger mechanism to chamber a BB and cock the hammer. However some guns (either to stay true to the original gun or to make the trigger pull easier) do have a single-action trigger. Either type of gun may also have blowback action, where CO2 will push the slide back in addition to firing a BB. When firing, the hammer strikes an internal valve linked to the CO2 source, which releases a measured amount of CO2 gas to fire the BB; this also gives it realistic recoil and muzzle report features. Many CO2 BB guns are patterned after popular firearms such as the Colt M1911, and can be used for training as well as recreation.[citation needed]

Some gas-powered BB guns use a larger source of gas, and provide machine gun-like fire. These types, most notably the Shooting Star Tommy Gun (originally known as the Feltman) are commonly found at carnivals. The MacGlashan BB Gun was used to train antiaircraft gunners in the United States Army Air Corps and United States Navy during World War II. A popular commercial model was the Larc M-19, which used 1 pound (454 g) canisters of Freon-12 refrigerant. These types have very simple operating mechanisms, based on a venturi pump. The gas is released in a constant stream, and this is used to suck the BBs up into the barrel at rates as high as 3600 rounds per minute.[3]

Competition use[edit]

It is possible to shoot competitively with a BB gun. The National Rifle Association youth shooting program has classifications for smoothbore BB guns, open to ages 14–18, and these classes are popular with youth groups such as 4-H and the Boy Scouts of America.

Safety[edit]

Main article: Toy and sport gun safety

BB gun injury showing how a 4.5 mm steel BB can penetrate the middle finger on the left hand

BB guns can shoot faster than 60 m/s (200 ft/s), but are often less powerful than a conventional pellet airgun. Pellet airguns have the ability to fire considerably faster, even beyond 170 m/s (560 ft/s).[4][5][6] Although claims are often exaggerated, a few airguns can actually fire a standard 0.177 caliber lead pellet faster than 320 m/s (1,000 ft/s), but these are generally not BB-firing guns.

A BB with a velocity of 45 m/s (150 ft/s) has skin-piercing capability, and a velocity reaching 60 m/s (200 ft/s) can fracture bone.[7] This is potentially lethal, and this potential increases with velocity, but also rapidly decreases with distance. The effective penetrating range of a BB gun with a muzzle velocity of 120 to 180 m/s (390 to 590 ft/s) is approximately 18 m (60 ft). A person wearing jeans at this distance would not sustain serious injury. However, even at this distance a BB still might penetrate bare skin, and even if not, could leave a severe and painful bruise. The maximum range of a BB gun in the 120 to 180 m/s (390 to 590 ft/s) range is 220 to 330 m (240 to 360 yd), provided the muzzle is elevated to the optimum angle.

Steel BBs are also notably prone to ricochet off hard surfaces such as brick, concrete, metal, or wood end grain. Eye protection is essential when shooting BBs at these materials, more so than when shooting lead pellets, since a BB bouncing off a hard surface can retain a large portion of its initial energy (pellets usually flatten and absorb energy), and could easily cause serious eye damage.[citation needed]

Quick Kill/Quick Fire training[edit]

The U.S. Army trained recruits in Quick Kill techniques using Daisy Model 99 BB guns to improve soldiers using their weapons in the Vietnam War from 1967 to 1973.[8] The technique was developed for the Army by Bobby Lamar "Lucky" McDaniel and Mike Jennings. The sights were removed from the BB guns for this training. The name was later changed to "Quick Fire" training.[citation needed]

Legal status[edit]

BB guns are often regulated as a typical air gun.[citation needed]Air gun laws vary widely by local jurisdiction.

In popular culture[edit]

One of the most famous BB guns is the Red Ryder BB Gun by Daisy Outdoor Products, modelled after the Winchesterlever-actionrifle. First introduced in 1940, it became an iconic American toy, and as of 2009 it was still in production. It was prominently featured in A Christmas Story, in which Ralphie Parker requests one for Christmas, but is repeatedly rebuffed with the warning "You'll shoot your eye out". The movie's fictional BB gun, described as the "Red Ryder carbine-action, two hundred shot Range Model air rifle with a compass in the stock and this thing which tells time", was not a real gun. The Red Ryder featured in the movie was specially made to match author Jean Shepherd's story (which may be artistic license, but it was the configuration Shepherd said he remembered).[9] The guns and a stand-up advertisement featuring the Red Ryder character appeared in a Higbee's store window in the film, along with dolls, a train, and Radio Flyer wagons.

An episode of My Name Is Earl called "BB" focused on the title character having accidentally shot a girl with a BB gun when he was younger, inadvertently causing a falling-out between her and her father.[10]

In the 1990 film Home Alone, the main protagonist Kevin McCallister uses a BB rifle against burglars Harry and Marv, in defense of his home.[citation needed]

    How do you break the friend zone?

    To escape the friend zone, you must first realize that all relationships involve negotiation—and you are attempting to “re-negotiate” the current exchange. Essentially, you want “more” from the other person. Most likely, you are already giving too much and what you really want is for them to balance the scales.

    Does the friend zone exist?

    The “friend zone” happens when two people are friends, and one person wants more while the other doesn’t. This can naturally lead to disappointment or frustration on both sides, and the mismatch of feelings occurs for people of all genders and orientations.

    How do you Friendzone someone you have feelings for?

    The term "BB gun" is frequently used to describe airsoft guns, which shoot plastic pellets (also often incorrectly referred to as "BBs") that are larger (usually 6 mm or 0.24 in in diameter) but much less dense than metal BBs,[1] and have significantly lower ballistic performance. The term is also sometimes used incorrectly to describe a pellet gun, which shoots diabolo-shaped (not spherical) lead projectiles at higher power and velocity. Although some BB guns can also shoot pellets, the reverse situation is not true: steel BB balls have greater stiffness and are not meant to be shot from pellet guns, whose barrels are typically rifled and thus can get stuck (similar to a squib load in firearms) and lead to a damage or mechanical failure within the gun.

    History[edit]

    The term BB originated from the nomenclature of the size of lead shots used in a smoothboreshotgun. Size "BB" shots were normally 0.180 in (4.6 mm), but tended to vary considerably in size due to the loose tolerances in shotshells. The highest size shotgun pellet commonly used was named 00 or double ought and was used for hunting deer and thus called buckshot, while the smaller BB-sized shot was typically used to shoot small/medium-sized game birds and therefore was a birdshot.

    In 1886, the Markham Air Rifle Company in Plymouth, Michigan produced the first wooden-construct spring-piston air rifle design as a youth training gun, and used the BB-size birdshot as the chosen ammunition. Two years later, the neighbouring Plymouth Air Rifle Company (later renamed Daisy Manufacturing Company in 1895) introduced the first full-metal airgun that also fired BB shots — the Daisy BB Gun, which became a very popular household name due to its successful marketing. Around 1900, Daisy changed their BB-size bore diameter to 0.175 in (4.4 mm), and began to market precision-made lead shot specifically for their BB guns. They called these "round shots", but the BB name was already well established, and most users continued calling their guns BB guns, and the projectiles as BB shots or just BBs.

    Subsequently, the term BB became generic, and is used loosely referring to any small spherical projectiles of various calibers and materials. This includes bearing balls often utilized by anti-personnel mines, .177 caliber lead/steel shots used by air guns, plastic round balls (such as the pellets used by airsoft guns), small marbles and many others. It has become ubiquitous to refer to any steel ball, such as a BB, as a "ball bearing". However, BBs should not be confused with a ball bearing, which is a mechanical component using small internal rolling balls to reduce friction between moving parts of machines.

    Operation[edit]

    BB guns can use any of the operating mechanisms used for air guns. However, due to the inherent limited accuracy and short effective range of the projectile, only the simpler and less expensive mechanisms are generally used for guns designed to fire only BBs.[citation needed]

    Because the strength of the steel BB does not allow it to be swaged with the low propelling force used to accelerate it through the barrel, BBs are slightly smaller (4.3 to 4.4 mm (0.171 to 0.173 in)) than the internal diameter of the barrel (4.5 mm (0.177 in)). This limits accuracy because little spin is imparted on the BB. It also limits range, because some of the pressurized gas used to accelerate the BB leaks around it and reduces the overall efficiency. Since a BB will easily roll unhindered down the barrel, it is common to find guns that use a magnet in the loading mechanism to hold the BB at the rear of the barrel until it is fired.[citation needed]

    The traditional and still most common powerplant for BB guns is the spring-piston pump, usually patterned after a lever-action rifle or a pump-action shotgun. The lever-action rifle was the first type of BB gun, and still dominates the inexpensive youth BB gun market. The Daisy Model 25, modeled after a pump-action shotgun with a trombone pump-action mechanism, dominated the low-price, higher-performance market for over 50 years. Lever-action models generally have very low velocities, around 84 m/s (275 ft/s), a result of the weak springs used to keep cocking efforts low for use by youths. The Daisy Model 25 typically achieved the highest velocities of its day, ranging from 114 to 145 m/s (375 to 475 ft/s).[2]

    Multiple-pump pneumatic guns are also common. Many pneumatic pellet guns provide the ability to use BBs as a cheaper alternative to lead shot. Some of these guns have rifled barrels, but the slightly undersized BBs do not swage in the barrel, so the rifling does not impart a significant spin. These are the types of guns that will benefit most from using precision lead BB shot. The pneumatic BB gun can attain much higher velocities than the traditional spring piston types.[citation needed]

    The last common type of power for BB guns is compressed gas, most commonly the Powerlet cartridges. The powerlet is a disposable metal gas cylinder containing 12 grams (190 gr) of compressed carbon dioxide, with a self-contained valve to release the CO2 which expands to propel the BB. These are primarily used in BB pistols, and are capable of rapid firing unlike spring-piston or pneumatic types. A typical CO2 BB pistol uses a spring-loaded magazine to feed BBs, and a double-action trigger mechanism to chamber a BB and cock the hammer. However some guns (either to stay true to the original gun or to make the trigger pull easier) do have a single-action trigger. Either type of gun may also have blowback action, where CO2 will push the slide back in addition to firing a BB. When firing, the hammer strikes an internal valve linked to the CO2 source, which releases a measured amount of CO2 gas to fire the BB; this also gives it realistic recoil and muzzle report features. Many CO2 BB guns are patterned after popular firearms such as the Colt M1911, and can be used for training as well as recreation.[citation needed]

    Some gas-powered BB guns use a larger source of gas, and provide machine gun-like fire. These types, most notably the Shooting Star Tommy Gun (originally known as the Feltman) are commonly found at carnivals. The MacGlashan BB Gun was used to train antiaircraft gunners in the United States Army Air Corps and United States Navy during World War II. A popular commercial model was the Larc M-19, which used 1 pound (454 g) canisters of Freon-12 refrigerant. These types have very simple operating mechanisms, based on a venturi pump. The gas is released in a constant stream, and this is used to suck the BBs up into the barrel at rates as high as 3600 rounds per minute.[3]

    Competition use[edit]

    It is possible to shoot competitively with a BB gun. The National Rifle Association youth shooting program has classifications for smoothbore BB guns, open to ages 14–18, and these classes are popular with youth groups such as 4-H and the Boy Scouts of America.

    Safety[edit]

    Main article: Toy and sport gun safety

    BB gun injury showing how a 4.5 mm steel BB can penetrate the middle finger on the left hand

    BB guns can shoot faster than 60 m/s (200 ft/s), but are often less powerful than a conventional pellet airgun. Pellet airguns have the ability to fire considerably faster, even beyond 170 m/s (560 ft/s).[4][5][6] Although claims are often exaggerated, a few airguns can actually fire a standard 0.177 caliber lead pellet faster than 320 m/s (1,000 ft/s), but these are generally not BB-firing guns.

    A BB with a velocity of 45 m/s (150 ft/s) has skin-piercing capability, and a velocity reaching 60 m/s (200 ft/s) can fracture bone.[7] This is potentially lethal, and this potential increases with velocity, but also rapidly decreases with distance. The effective penetrating range of a BB gun with a muzzle velocity of 120 to 180 m/s (390 to 590 ft/s) is approximately 18 m (60 ft). A person wearing jeans at this distance would not sustain serious injury. However, even at this distance a BB still might penetrate bare skin, and even if not, could leave a severe and painful bruise. The maximum range of a BB gun in the 120 to 180 m/s (390 to 590 ft/s) range is 220 to 330 m (240 to 360 yd), provided the muzzle is elevated to the optimum angle.

    Steel BBs are also notably prone to ricochet off hard surfaces such as brick, concrete, metal, or wood end grain. Eye protection is essential when shooting BBs at these materials, more so than when shooting lead pellets, since a BB bouncing off a hard surface can retain a large portion of its initial energy (pellets usually flatten and absorb energy), and could easily cause serious eye damage.[citation needed]

    Quick Kill/Quick Fire training[edit]

    The U.S. Army trained recruits in Quick Kill techniques using Daisy Model 99 BB guns to improve soldiers using their weapons in the Vietnam War from 1967 to 1973.[8] The technique was developed for the Army by Bobby Lamar "Lucky" McDaniel and Mike Jennings. The sights were removed from the BB guns for this training. The name was later changed to "Quick Fire" training.[citation needed]

    Legal status[edit]

    BB guns are often regulated as a typical air gun.[citation needed]Air gun laws vary widely by local jurisdiction.

    In popular culture[edit]

    One of the most famous BB guns is the Red Ryder BB Gun by Daisy Outdoor Products, modelled after the Winchesterlever-actionrifle. First introduced in 1940, it became an iconic American toy, and as of 2009 it was still in production. It was prominently featured in A Christmas Story, in which Ralphie Parker requests one for Christmas, but is repeatedly rebuffed with the warning "You'll shoot your eye out". The movie's fictional BB gun, described as the "Red Ryder carbine-action, two hundred shot Range Model air rifle with a compass in the stock and this thing which tells time", was not a real gun. The Red Ryder featured in the movie was specially made to match author Jean Shepherd's story (which may be artistic license, but it was the configuration Shepherd said he remembered).[9] The guns and a stand-up advertisement featuring the Red Ryder character appeared in a Higbee's store window in the film, along with dolls, a train, and Radio Flyer wagons.

    An episode of My Name Is Earl called "BB" focused on the title character having accidentally shot a girl with a BB gun when he was younger, inadvertently causing a falling-out between her and her father.[10]

    In the 1990 film Home Alone, the main protagonist Kevin McCallister uses a BB rifle against burglars Harry and Marv, in defense of his home.[citation needed]

      OnwardMobility still doesn’t have any update on its BlackBerry phone

      U.S.-based mobile security company OnwardMobility has still not provided an update on its promised BlackBerry-branded phone.

      As PCMag notes, OnwardMobility said the handset would launch sometime in 2021, a window that will have passed in just under six weeks. The phone was originally unveiled in August 2020 for a release in the “first half of 2021,” with BlackBerry at the time saying it was “thrilled” to partner with the Texas-based company.

      However, there’s since been no update. In a new statement to PCMag, an OnwardMobility spokesperson said the company is “unable to share more details or conduct any interviews.”

      Given the silence, it doesn’t seem like we’ll get any form of update on the phone in the next six weeks, much less an actual release. Since OnwardMobility is keeping mum on the matter, it’s also unclear what sorts of issues the phone might have run into.

      All we have to go off is that the phone — assuming it still exists — was to be a 5G Android handset that sports a physical keyboard.

      The OnwardMobility BlackBerry phone was particularly notable since China-based TCL announced stopped selling BlackBerry-branded devices last year and that it lost the rights to design or manufacture new ones. Therefore, OnwardMobility’s device was positioned as an alternative for fans of the Canadian phone brand.

      Otherwise, the last BlackBerry device to be released in North America was the BlackBerry Key2 LE.

      New York City Meets Houston At New BB Lemon

      BB Lemon, the new Berg Hospitality Group restaurant taking after New York City's JG Melon, has all the trappings of a New York City shotgun-style restaurant. 

      For one, the bar area is narrow. You might have to shimmy if traveling from the front dining space to the more intimate back space. For me, a born and bred East Coast kid, that's comforting, because I love the feeling that at any moment the world (or at least the back of someone's bar chair) will crash into you. For you, results my vary.

      Two, that back area is a peach. It's dimly lit, has plentiful booth seating, and gives diners a nice view of raw bar prep. 

      Then there are the little things. Berg pointed out the phone he installed in the front of the restaurant—it's an actual New York City pay phone. And it works. Call BB Lemon, and someone will pick up from that phone. My goodness, yes. Then there are framed photos of Texas legends in back of the bar, much like the signed photos of C-list celebrities in every old-school burger and Greek joint in the Big Apple. "Best gyro around!" signed Joe Piscopo, 1990.

      But I tasted some of the food there, and one thing that certainly puts it up against JG Melon and those old-school joints? The burger is superb. A hefty patty of West Texas wagyu (of course it's wagyu). Two squishy brioche buns. Some red onions and pickles on the side, if you want to dress it. Bacon optional. Cheddar optional. That's it. No leaves or veggies. And the meat steals the show: juicy, of course, but infused with a subtle woodsy flavor. 

      Start your meal with the New England clam chowder. It's oilier than what I'm used to, but it's stocked with fresh clams and a seductively briny flavor. Close it with the brownie a la mode that comes with a cloud of marshmallow fluff, a dollop of vanilla, blueberries, and mint sprigs. I never knew blueberry and mint were perfect partners for a brownie sundae.

      With solid interpretations of classic metropolitan fare, a killer burger, and a freakin' pay phone, BB Lemon is the restaurant you'll want to visit with friends after a Broadway show. It just so happens to be here in Houston.

      BlackBerry is releasing a new 5G-enabled device with a physical keyboard in 2021


      The BlackBerry smartphone from the early 2000s is making a comeback. 

      The Texas-based mobile security company OnwardMobility and Foxconn subsidiary FIH Mobile Limited teamed up with Blackberry to announce that the flashback phone is rising from the ashes with 5G connectivity. 

      The three companies said Wednesday that the new phone will still have a physical keyboard and will roll out in the first half of 2021. But few other details were announced. 

      “BlackBerry smartphones are known for protecting communications, privacy, and data. This is an incredible opportunity for OnwardMobility to bring next-generation 5G devices to market with the backing of BlackBerry and FIH Mobile," said Peter Franklin, CEO of OnwardMobility, in a statement.

      The last Blackberry phone, the Key2, was released in 2018 under China's TCL Communication. The $649 device also had a physical Qwerty keyboard instead of a touchscreen. 

      Blackberry phones were once the go-to gadget for conducting business. The devices enabled you to fire off quick emails and messages using the keys and scrolling ball. But the Waterloo, Canada-based company fell out of favor with the launch of the iPhone in 2007, and the premium Samsung devices that followed.

      New York City Meets Houston At New BB Lemon

      BB Lemon, the new Berg Hospitality Group restaurant taking after New York City's JG Melon, has all the trappings of a New York City shotgun-style restaurant. 

      For one, the bar area is narrow. You might have to shimmy if traveling from the front dining space to the more intimate back space. For me, a born and bred East Coast kid, that's comforting, because I love the feeling that at any moment the world (or at least the back of someone's bar chair) will crash into you. For you, results my vary.

      Two, that back area is a peach. It's dimly lit, has plentiful booth seating, and gives diners a nice view of raw bar prep. 

      Then there are the little things. Berg pointed out the phone he installed in the front of the restaurant—it's an actual New York City pay phone. And it works. Call BB Lemon, and someone will pick up from that phone. My goodness, yes. Then there are framed photos of Texas legends in back of the bar, much like the signed photos of C-list celebrities in every old-school burger and Greek joint in the Big Apple. "Best gyro around!" signed Joe Piscopo, 1990.

      But I tasted some of the food there, and one thing that certainly puts it up against JG Melon and those old-school joints? The burger is superb. A hefty patty of West Texas wagyu (of course it's wagyu). Two squishy brioche buns. Some red onions and pickles on the side, if you want to dress it. Bacon optional. Cheddar optional. That's it. No leaves or veggies. And the meat steals the show: juicy, of course, but infused with a subtle woodsy flavor. 

      Start your meal with the New England clam chowder. It's oilier than what I'm used to, but it's stocked with fresh clams and a seductively briny flavor. Close it with the brownie a la mode that comes with a cloud of marshmallow fluff, a dollop of vanilla, blueberries, and mint sprigs. I never knew blueberry and mint were perfect partners for a brownie sundae.

      With solid interpretations of classic metropolitan fare, a killer burger, and a freakin' pay phone, BB Lemon is the restaurant you'll want to visit with friends after a Broadway show. It just so happens to be here in Houston.

      Is it rude to address someone by their last name?

      In some historical cases, the last name was used when addressing your social or professional inferiors; you add a title or honorific if they are superior. Calling someone by their last name is the default and is not rude unless the person explicitly stated they don’t wish to be referred to by their last name.

      I would now like to turn today's call over to Tim Foote, BlackBerry Investor Relations. Please go ahead.

      Tim Foote -- Investor Relations

      Thank you, Ashley. Good afternoon, and welcome to BlackBerry's second quarter fiscal 2022 earnings conference call.

      And with that, I'll turn the call over to John.

      John Chen -- Executive Chairman & Chief Executive Officer

      Thank you. Thank you, Tim. Good afternoon, everybody, and thanks for joining the call today. One correction, I think all the number -- all the revenue number we use will be GAAP based, correct?

      Tim Foote -- Investor Relations

      Yes.

      John Chen -- Executive Chairman & Chief Executive Officer

      You said non-GAAP numbers. It is actually -- the revenue number we'll refer to, all GAAP based number. Okay.

      Starting with our headlines. This quarter, the business performed well with revenue for all the three business segments, beating expectations. The Cyber Security business unit delivered strong sequential billings and revenue growth. The IoT business unit performed better than expected with strong design-related activities, partially offset -- offsetting the impact of the global chip shortage on production royalties. Licensing revenue reflects the restriction on monetization activity from the ongoing patent sale negotiations, which I will talk about more in detail shortly. Licensing and Other revenue came in slightly stronger than expected.

      This quarter BlackBerry generated positive operating cash flow. Following the strengthening of our IoT leadership team in Q1, we have appointed John Giamatteo to lead our Cyber Security business unit, beginning or commencing November -- October 4, sorry, commencing October 4, which is a couple of weeks from now. John was previously the McAfee President and Chief Revenue Officer, running the enterprise and consumer cyber security businesses. This new appointment completes the refocus of our software business, into two business units, I'll cover this in more detail later. Excuse me.

      I'll start my review with the IoT business unit. Revenue came in at $40 million, which is better than expected primarily due to ongoing strength in the design activities area. Gross margin remained strong at 83%. IoT ARR increased to $89 million. As you are all aware, the auto industry experienced some significant headwinds in Q2 due to the global semiconductor chip shortage. This impacted production volume, particularly in North America. For instance, a major customers of ours reported 700,000 large units of production in calendar Q2. Production-based royalty are historically the largest single component of our QNX revenue. However, a significant portion of revenue is also generated from design activities, prior to the vehicle entering production. This part of the business remains very vibrant, and we continue to generate strong development seat and professional services revenues. As a result, total IoT revenue in the quarter was better than expected. Furthermore, these design wins will translate into future production-based royalties.

      As we look ahead to the rest of the year, we continue to see the headwind for our vehicle production. The problem is future has shifted from surprise of wafers to more of a back-end assembly and testing issues, largely due to the spike in COVID cases in Asia, as well as some of the accidents going on in Asia, like some of their plants had fire for example. Feedback from OEM about the impact on production volumes in the second half is somewhat mix and constantly evolving. For example, Daimler recently indicated they're expecting a lessening impact by Q4, excuse me, sorry. And Volkswagen, on the other hand, see challenges persisting into 2023.

      In terms of outlook, we continue to see the past quarter as the low point, but significant headwinds are expected to continue into Q4 and -- Q3 and Q4 and perhaps even beyond that, albeit with a sequentially decreasing impact. The impact of the chip shortage on QNX royalty revenue is expected to be buffer somewhat by ongoing strength in design activities. We are comfortable with the current IoT revenue consensus, meaning the full year revenue outlook remains unchanged.

      As mentioned, despite of the supply chain issue QNX continue to win new design at a very solid pace. In the quarter, we had 23 new design wins, with seven in auto and 16 in the general embedded market, we call it, GEM. Because of our market presence and leading technology, we are a trusted go-to supplier and market leader in auto. Furthermore, we're delighted to announce that we now have design wins with 24 of the world's Top 25 electric vehicle automakers, as measured by volume. Having been selected, call bb recently by Daimler as part of their design -- as part of their EV design. This is up from the 23 of 25 we had last quarter. These 24 OEMs, between them represent 82% of global EV market -- production, sorry, 82% of global EV production. This demonstrate a leading position we have in this very fast growing part of the auto industry.

      I'd like to expand on a couple of design wins to get investors more colors as to why QNX was chosen, and why we are the industry leader. The first design, which was a automotive tier 1, that is building full digital cockpit and gateway solution for a Chinese EV OEM. You see the QNX real-time operating system and hypervisor. QNX technology is well known and trusted in China, in the Chinese automotive industry given its reputation for safety and security. QNX was chosen above software as a solution from both domestic and multinational -- and as well as multinational competitors. Production is expected in 2022, which is next year and run for around five years. The second is a leading Japanese industrial robotics manufacturer that's also happen do be a new logo to a BlackBerry. The customer select QNX for an autonomous 3D robot warehousing system ahead of the leading competitors. QNX was chosen for its functional safety credentials. Production is expected to start this year and continue for five years. Other notable design wins this quarter in auto included instrument, cluster and ADAS systems. In a GEM space, design wins including medical diagnostic, industrial process control and thermal control system for a power plant.

      I'm going to shift to Jarvis. During the quarter, we launched Jarvis 2.0. This is a SaaS version of our software composition analytics tool, which was previously offer as a bespoke service engagement. Jarvis 2.0, which include a market-leading binary code scanner is an important part of how BlackBerry can assist customers to achieve compliance with the recent SBOM executive order, secure bill of material -- Software Bill of Materials, sorry, Software Bill of Materials executive orders, mandated by the Biden administration.

      Moving to a brief update on IVY. We are pleased with the ongoing progress being made. Both BlackBerry and AWS has significant resources allocated to project, and our timelines remains on track. We are on schedule to release an early access version of the production in October, in the product side. We are scheduled to release an early access version of the product in October that will enable further engagement with OEMs, and also allow demonstration at CES in January. This version will be available to certain ecosystem partners to begin actively building application on IVY. And speaking of applications, for IVY to be embraced by automakers we recognized that it is important to demonstrate IVY value to them.

      Following on from a AI-driven battery management apps that we announced last quarter, we announced another application that we will be built on IVY. This new application enable in-vehicle payments and is being delivered through a partnership with Car IQ, a California-based start-up. The application will use direct access to the sensor data and the edge compute, two of the IVY's key differentiators to produce a unique digital fingerprint for their vehicle. This will allow authentication of payments for items such as, fuels, tolls, parking services, etc., without a need of a free credit cards or other traditional payment methods. This opens up the possibility for OEM to participate in a new revenue streams, and it's another of the many potential applications that IVY will enable. In summary, IVY continues to progress nicely.

      Now let me turn to Cyber Security. This quarter, the business unit delivered strong sequential billings and revenue growth. Revenue was $120 million. Gross margin came in at 59%. ARR was $364 million. Dollar-based net retention was 95%. As we mentioned earlier, John Giamatteo will be joining BlackBerry to lead the Cyber Security business unit, taking over from Tom Eacobacci, who was the Acting General Manager. John brings with him many years of cyber security industry experience. During his six years as President and Chief Revenue Officer at McAfee, he delivered both double-digit growth and margin expansion for the enterprise, the SMB, as well as the consumer divisions. John will build on the progress that has been made in recent quarters with the Cyber Security business unit go-to-market engine, and will also direct old product development, and business unit strategy. Tom Eacobacci has decided to pursue other opportunities, and will leave BlackBerry at the end of October. The addition of John to the team completes the split of the software and services business into two market focus business unit. Both IoT and cybers are targeted with driving growth and with it shareholder value. The two business units will report directly to me.

      As mentioned, this was a good quarter. Although, it's still work for team to do, there's a few outstanding area that I feel that I'd like to share with you about. This quarter we saw further growth in pipeline for our cyber security product, especially for the new logo customers. Pipeline grew strongly for BlackBerry Gateway, as zero trust network access product launched last quarter. To help realize this increased pipeline, investment in our direct sales force, in particularly the hiring of quota-carrying sales head continues. We're also making further progress in the channel as illustrated by a 32% sequential growth in the channel billings this quarter. New partner program has also helped significantly increase both channel driven pipeline generation and a new logo billings, mainly in the North Americas arena.

      We also have seen robust growth in business through managed service -- managed security service providers or MSSPs. You may recall that during the Q2 earnings call a year ago, we targeted using MNSP -- MSSPs, sorry, to quickly scale our guarded managed service offering. Today one of these partners, I'm happy to report, manage more than 100,000 endpoints using BlackBerry Cyber products.

      I'd like to take a closer look at some wins during the quarter that demonstrate why customer chose -- are choosing BlackBerry for their cyber security needs. The first customer is one of the Top 10 automakers in the world. This customer select our Protect EPP and Optics EDR solution, following a competitive bake off in which we went head-to-head with CrowdStrike and Carbon Black. The customer selected BlackBerry due to our near 100% malware detection rate, our lightweight engine and flexible deployment options, both in the cloud as well as the stand-alone factory network. The second is a Fortune 100 financial services company. BlackBerry displace Microsoft Defender with Protect and Optics. The company selected us, particularly, for our performance on macOS. The third is where we have continued success within the Australian state government agencies. This quarter, we saw Protect offtakes in our ThreatZERO consulting services into a number of agency displacing predominantly legacy incumbents that included Trend Micro and Symantec. The customer chose BlackBerry for our next-generation prevention for its technology.

      On the industry recognition front, SE Labs, a leading independent research firm based in London, has performed rigorous set of tests on our EPP and EDR products, Protect and Optics. This breach test differ from their quarterly endpoint test, rather than simply loading no malware onto an endpoint, which typically masking an ability of traditional signature-based vendors to prevent zero-day threats that breach test in includes instead of [Indecipherable] real-time, real-world hacking tactics. They have probably comprehensive techniques to evade our defense, and concluded that Protect and Optics provide compete prevention, complete detection, as well as zero false positive. A link to the full report could be found on our Investor Relations webpage. This third-party validation of our product, not just our EDP -- EPP, but also our EDR demonstrate how we have successfully closed the product gap to competitors with recent product launches.

      The market is now recognizing some of the unique differentiated abilities of our cyber products, one of which is a maturity of our AI engine. As in the previous quarters, we are seeing new malware and ransomware hitting the headline on an almost daily basis. Our AI engine, the most mature in the industry continues to provide zero-day prevention against the host of these threats. In the quarter, our product successfully brought new profile ransomware, such as Hive, LockBit, Ragnar Locker, and many more before they could do any damages. BlackBerry Cylance AI engine is firmly focused on preventing our customers on being breached, whereas some of the leading competitors instead focus on showing customer all the ways that system -- on a different ways that their system could be accessed.

      On the UEM front, we will continue to invest in our roadmap delivering enhancements that add most value to customers. We recently announced that the enterprise can now benefit from BlackBerry leading security, while enjoying a seamless and native user experience with Microsoft 365 productivity apps. This is enabled by additional integration between BlackBerry UEM and Microsoft 365, primarily through the Azure Active Directory Conditional Access. This is part of the latest version of the UEM new series, which was released this month, earlier this month that is. New series also provide zero-day support for Android 12 and iOS 15.

      This past quarter, we secured important new year renewals with government agencies, such as IRS, the Department of Homeland Security, the US Marine Corps, the US Army Corps of Engineers, the UK Ministry of Defense, the US -- United States Air Force, as well as leading enterprise such as General Dynamics and Mariner [Phonetic]. We also won a number of new logos such as, French National Institute for Criminal Research and the Tel Aviv Stock Exchange.

      With continued growth in pipeline, couple of investment in our direct and channel sales, the outlook of the Cyber Security business unit is for sequential billings growth for the remaining of the fiscal year. This is expected to lead to modest sequential revenue growth due to the subscription model. The full year outlook remains, as before, at the lower end of $495 million to $515 million range.

      Turning now to licensing. As I call bb earlier, negotiation to sell the portion of the patent portfolio related to mobile devices, messaging and wireless networking, are ongoing. And we have made significant progress since our last earnings call, including preliminary agreement of many of the key items -- of the key terms of the deal. We expect to execute definitive agreement this quarter. Closing the transaction will be subject to a normal regulatory review. Normal -- naturally, given this backdrop, we will continue to eliminate monetization activities for the remaining of the fiscal year, therefore, revenue for call bb Q3 and Q4 is expected to be similar to Q2, which is at $10 million per quarter. While we expect the sales to conclude essentially, the process has call bb longer than we expected or anticipated. Should it not conclude this quarter, we have other options, including additional interested parties. We will update investors on the material -- on any of the material developments in a timely manners.

      So let me now hand over to Steve to further review the financials. Steve?

      Steve Rai -- Chief Financial Officer

      Thank you, John. My comments on our financial performance for the second quarter will be in non-GAAP terms, unless otherwise noted. Please refer to the supplemental table in the press release for the GAAP and non-GAAP details.

      We delivered second quarter total Company revenue of $175 million. Second quarter total Company gross margin was 65%. Our non-GAAP gross margin excludes stock compensation expense of $1 million. Second quarter operating expenses were $143 million. Our non-GAAP operating expenses exclude $32 million in amortization of acquired intangibles, $11 million in stock compensation expense, and $67 million fair value adjustment on the convertible debentures, which is a non-cash accounting adjustment from the large swings, driven by market and trading conditions.

      The second quarter non-GAAP operating loss was $30 million, and the second quarter non-GAAP net loss was $33 million. Non-GAAP earnings per share was a $0.06 loss in the quarter. Our adjusted EBITDA was negative $14 million this quarter, excluding the non-GAAP adjustments previously mentioned, as we continue to invest in both our cyber and IoT businesses to drive top line growth.

      I will now provide a breakdown of our revenue in the quarter. Cyber Security revenue was $120 million, and IoT revenue was $40 million. Software product revenue remained in the range of 80% to 85% of the total, with professional services comprising the balance. The recurring portion of software product revenue was approximately 80%. Licensing and Other revenue was $15 million. As John mentioned, our IP monetization activities remained limited, while negotiations for the potential sale continues.

      Now moving to our balance sheet and cash flow performance. Total cash, cash equivalents and investments were $772 million as at August 31, 2021, an increase of $3 million during the quarter. Our net cash position increased to $407 million. Second quarter free cash flow was $10 million. Cash generated from operations was $12 million, and capital expenditures were $2 million.

      That concludes my comments. I'll now turn it back to John.

      John Chen -- Executive Chairman & Chief Executive Officer

      Thank you, Steve. Before we move to Q&A, I'd like to summarize this past quarter. I'm pleased with how the business performed, beating revenue expectations for all the businesses and delivered positive cash flow. The structure of the two market focused business, cyber business unit is already delivering results and we're adding additional relevant industry experience. We are encouraged by the growth in cyber security pipeline and continue to invest in sales technology. QNX design activities remains very strong, and we are very -- weathering the impact of the chip shortage as well. We are now also making good progress with IVY.

      And with that I'd like, actually, the operator to open the line for Q&A, please.

      Questions and Answers:

      Operator

      And we will now begin the question-and-answer session. [Operator Instructions] Our first question today will be from Mike Walkley with Canaccord. Your line is open.

      Mike Walkley -- Canaccord -- Analyst

      Great.

      John Chen -- Executive Chairman & Chief Executive Officer

      Hi, Mike.

      Mike Walkley -- Canaccord -- Analyst

      Thanks. Hi, John. How are you doing?

      John Chen -- Executive Chairman & Chief Executive Officer

      Very good.

      Mike Walkley -- Canaccord -- Analyst

      Thanks for all the updates and the guidance. I guess my first question for you is, your guidance arguably implies an aggressive second half outlook, just to reach the full year guidance. Can you walk us through what needs to go right for you to achieve that guidance for stronger second half?

      John Chen -- Executive Chairman & Chief Executive Officer

      Yeah. Thank you. Thank you for the question. So there are some assumptions that let me break it down a little bit. Licensing, of course, we already explained. So I don't have to go much detail of that. I think we're going to have $10 million a quarter for the next two quarters, the second half that is. each of the quarter. And it had something to do with the fact that we are not going to monetize, or push on the monetization effort and licensing effort, while we're going through this negotiation on selling the portion of the patents that is on those areas of business that we no longer actively involved with. Regarding IoT, the only wildcard, so to speak, is the chip shortage and the impact of that. From all the indicators, all the ups and downs and give and take, and we spoke to a lot of them, the OEMs that North America seems to be getting better in Q3, Q4, as compared to Q2. Good -- a good example will be Ford believe they could -- they are improving and GM also is, although they're going to shut down a couple of factories in Q3. But I think from by magnitude, it's improving versus the first half of the year. So North America, you see it going back, improving the situation. Europe, however, still had about 10% to 15% impact of the production, and so is Asia Pacific. So, net of all that, if we are in that range, without any dramatic departure then the numbers that we expected in the second half still holds. And a big part of that, of course is, we are winning some very strong design wins that that bring us more developer seats revenue and then as well as professional services revenue. So I'm pretty comfortable with that.

      On cyber, it really is a function of one thing. I mean, I got two consideration in there. One thing, the major part is, we have a lot of salespeople join us in the last couple of, two quarters, three quarters. We have a pretty young pipeline. The activities in the pipeline has been very strong in the last quarter and two. So putting that together, it's actually a good thing, except that it might take time to ramp up. And so the rate of conversion of the pipeline with a newer sales force, it's the only wildcard. And it is something that we have to manage very carefully. But the good news there is, even if it takes longer, these things -- these businesses don't tend to go away. So we're -- so that's the assumptions that we made in our forecast. The other one is, in Q4, we've got a couple of large government deals with some of the government, especially in North America. Some of those needs to come to fruition. And then we sort of -- and then we expect them to. So those are the basis of our forecast. Yes. Second half seems to be a bigger number, a stronger number than Q -- the first half. That's correct.

      Great. Thank you. And just my follow-up question. Congrats on adding John Giamatteo to the team. Is he going to run kind of the same playbook that was getting put in place for all the team? Or do you expect further changes with the rotation in such key position, and does that impact your guidance thoughts at all.

      John Chen -- Executive Chairman & Chief Executive Officer

      It's slightly early to tell, but I'm dying to hear his experience of growth. Because he was being able to grow both the consumer business and enterprise business at McAfee, when he was running the -- where he was the President in McAfee and the CRO. So I'm sure he will make some changes. I'm doubtful that everything will remain exactly the same. On the other hand, the investment that we made in channel, the investment we made in pipeline, the investment we make in partners, and the engineering, and the investment we make in hiring more sales reps. And we have a -- a couple of quarters ago, we hired a pretty good professional services. I'm sure that he will take full advantage of those.

      Mike Walkley -- Canaccord -- Analyst

      Great. Thanks for taking my questions.

      Your next question comes from Daniel Chan with TD Securities. Your line is open.

      John Chen -- Executive Chairman & Chief Executive Officer

      Hey, Daniel.

      Daniel Chan -- TD Securities -- Analyst

      Hey, John.

      Steve Rai -- Chief Financial Officer

      Hi, Dan.

      Daniel Chan -- TD Securities -- Analyst

      You mentioned earlier that, typically your QNX revenue has a higher mix of royalty versus development. Should we expect a higher mix of development for the next couple of years as electronics and software development become ramped up at a lot of these OEMs?

      John Chen -- Executive Chairman & Chief Executive Officer

      I think you should expect, probably for this year, and I think -- I don't think in the future years it will continue to be the same. The reason I say this is because remember, I should be seeing some of the production revenue coming from ADAS assuming the supply shortages issue, it started to improve. I mean it had to improve over time. As a huge industry, and semiconductor -- for the whole semiconductor industry, auto is not really that big, it's not 100%. Obviously, it's probably like more or like 15% of the market. So we will address that. And so I expect that our royalty rate to go back into some kind of growth, especially with all the design wins that we had in the last couple of, two years, three years.

      Daniel Chan -- TD Securities -- Analyst

      Okay, that's helpful. Can you remind us how you sell these development seats? Is it more like a perpetual license, or is there a recurring proportion to that as well?

      John Chen -- Executive Chairman & Chief Executive Officer

      It's more like a perpetual license. It's selling seats.

      Daniel Chan -- TD Securities -- Analyst

      Okay. And do you kind of get like a 20% maintenance?

      John Chen -- Executive Chairman & Chief Executive Officer

      Yeah. We get upgrade and maintenance on it. Yes.

      Daniel Chan -- TD Securities -- Analyst

      Okay. One more if I may, Cyber Security ARR was flat sequentially, while you've been saying that the pipeline has been growing. Just wondering when we're going to start seeing that metric start to pick up. Whether there is some seasonality built into [Indecipherable].

      John Chen -- Executive Chairman & Chief Executive Officer

      Yeah. That's a good question. I asked that question also and they always give me the product mix answer, that some of them we took earlier upfront because the Rev Rec policy. I expect for this full sales -- and I've said it in the past by the way, so it's very consistent. This year or next year is where I would see -- we are -- I'm going to see some -- hoping to see some strong growth of all the investment we have made, the pipeline growing into new sales and so forth.

      Daniel Chan -- TD Securities -- Analyst

      Okay, thank you.

      Your next question comes from Paul Treiber with RBC Capital Markets. Your line is open.

      John Chen -- Executive Chairman & Chief Executive Officer

      Hi, there.

      Paul Treiber -- RBC Capital Markets -- Analyst

      Hi, John. First question on the patent sale, I know you can't say much just given you're in the middle of negotiations. But in your statement, you mentioned that the negotiations are going well. But then you also indicated that if it doesn't close, you have other options. Just could you bridge between those two statements, because they're actually quite far apart from a tone perspective.

      John Chen -- Executive Chairman & Chief Executive Officer

      That's a good one. I'm glad you caught it. Yes, it is going well. I fully expect to finish this this quarter. But I'm tired of waiting. I know a lot of our investors are too. It is -- I'm not blaming anything on anybody, and may be we have too many lawyers assigned comenity torrid card this, sorry, lawyers, I doubted you. But the key is -- it's a complex and it's big portfolio. It is rightfully so that they have done a lot of due diligence, and those things are now completed by the way, all the due diligence are completed. And then we have a lot of time span on definitive agreement negotiation. And then by and large, with the exception of one or two items, we're done with that. And then we have the purchase agreement. And so it just for me, it's been since last Christmas. It's coming up, the next Christmas. So, I basically kind of draw the line in the sand and say, I can just stop licensing the business to either move on one direction or the other. And then there are other interested parties in calling. And so we are not entertaining them because, as you recall during a period of time, not long in the past, we were in exclusive discussion with these people. So I can't really entertain a third-party. So my only point is, if you want to put percentage, waiting percentage, I put 80%, 20%. I put 80%, we get it done this quarter. Does that help?

      Paul Treiber -- RBC Capital Markets -- Analyst

      Yeah, that's very helpful. I wasn't going to ask for percentage, but I'm glad you threw it out. Switching back to the business, in regards to 24 out of 25 EV OEMs, how do we think about the magnitude or size of these wins? Like you find like EV is the -- the ASP is higher than a gasoline vehicle, is that what you're seeing, generally?

      John Chen -- Executive Chairman & Chief Executive Officer

      No. Usually to ASP ties to functionality. If you look at functionality like IDI, it's usually low single digit dollars for royalty, but if you look at ADAS and clusters, they are usually high single-digit pushing into double-digit per car. So it's not gasoline versus electric vehicle. And so the electric vehicle have one advantage, which is where -- which is in a more component of highly complex ECUs. When you have highly complex ECU, it does two things for us. Number one, because we have the highest certification in security and safety, when you have a high complex ECU, like a compute engine in the car, they tend to go after that most secure and most safe production -- product. So we have an actual advantage to win it. That's number one. Number two, they used to -- they tend to use very complex algorithm and that will help us sometimes selling more than even one copy for a ECU. So -- and when you sell these complex ECUs, and with ADAS or clusters, or hypervisor, typically the ASP is on a higher end. So it's really more function that drive ASP versus EV or gas.

      Paul Treiber -- RBC Capital Markets -- Analyst

      Okay, that's helpful. And then one follow-up. It seems like BlackBerry QNX has good traction in Chinese EV market. Could you speak to, like there is a pricing for that market. Does it materially different than other OEMs, or other geographies for QNX?

      John Chen -- Executive Chairman & Chief Executive Officer

      No, no material difference. So there's also other things you need to be aware that a lot of those Chinese players actually had design center in the United States. So the market price is the market price, because they all -- a lot of them are all in the US. But of course, we have a Chinese team and then deal with the customers over there, and the factories over there and so forth. But they're not materially different.

      Paul Treiber -- RBC Capital Markets -- Analyst

      Okay, thank you. I'll pass the line.

      John Chen -- Executive Chairman & Chief Executive Officer

      Hello there.

      Todd Coupland -- CIBC -- Analyst

      Hey there, John. Nice to talk to you. I'll follow-up on the EV line of questioning. So that 25th OEM, which you don't have, your role is bringing out new vehicles, many new vehicles that are selling well at lower prices, etc. What are the chances, if you're getting into that OEM?

      John Chen -- Executive Chairman & Chief Executive Officer

      My team promised me, through up and down they're working it. And so I'm hopeful that I -- the fact that they typically like to do compete vertical integrations, it still require work from us. But we're working it.

      Todd Coupland -- CIBC -- Analyst

      Yeah, OK. And then also on the patent sale, there has been press articles that in the trade press that you more or less sort of settled on a price, and it was really the complexity of all the participants in a, I guess, a buyer's group, if you will. Any comments on whether that is indeed correct, and it really is these details with the various parties that has yet to get worked out. Thanks a lot.

      John Chen -- Executive Chairman & Chief Executive Officer

      I can't comment on ongoing negotiation, because it doesn't help me or whoever. I would say to you that that we have settled on the price. And that I would agree -- I would confirm. Everything else, I can't really comment on.

      Todd Coupland -- CIBC -- Analyst

      Okay, all right. That's great. Appreciate the color. Thanks a lot.

      Your next question comes from Paul Steep with Scotia. Your line is open.

      John Chen -- Executive Chairman & Chief Executive Officer

      Hi, there.

      Paul Steep -- Scotia -- Analyst

      Hi, John. So two quick ones. The first one, maybe talk to us about how you're thinking about monetizing IVY and how those thoughts have evolved. And then I'll toss it my quick follow-ups.

      John Chen -- Executive Chairman & Chief Executive Officer

      I'm sorry, how they monetize IVY? Oh, IVY. Okay. Well, there is -- it's a work in progress, but I have a lot of ideas. First of all, I wanted something that are usage base and recurring base. And that's the revenue model. And if you look at what IVY really is, it's a collateral sensor data, the ability to analyze that push you on the edge, put it on the cloud. Apply AI to it, and feed it back to the OEM or application providers. And one of the reason why we spend so much time on the application side, a quarter ago, we have a intelligent battery management systems for performance and for managing anything regarding to -- related to a battery and the usage of it. And this past quarter, we turned our attention to have an application that turn your vehicle into a wallet basically. And it's a huge market for those of you who follow this because the fleet cars -- especially the trucks and the Amazon delivery trucks or the FedEx, or US UPS, or cargoes, the commercial trucks, they -- if we do equipped [Phonetic] with IVY, there are tons of sensing data between security and productivity, and the ability to not having to use of third-party to do payment and so forth, are all very positive and cost effective solution from the truck owner, and a truck runners. They also, as I mentioned earlier, the OEM has always also find -- try to find ways to enrich their source of revenue after they sold the car. And this will -- this could IVY may be able to facilitate some of these applications. So that's kind of where I'm very focused on to create usage base, whether it is app base or functional base use cases. And in some cases I could share with the third parties that could share with banks. I could share the revenue with OEMs. And these are all possibility. So that's how we focus on monetizing IVY.

      Paul Steep -- Scotia -- Analyst

      Great. Thanks. Steve, two quick follow-ups, I guess, for yourself, or Steve. First one would just relate to your commentary, but continuing to invest in sales force. Should we think of the numbers that you've sort of added this quarter and aggregate dollars sort of reflective throughout the remainder of the year? And then the other sort of clarification, not asking you about a pending transaction, but if the patent business didn't exist at the BlackBerry, how should we think about stranded cost in the SG&A line? Or is it effectively pure profit that we just see maybe move off, if that business was not to be there. Thank you.

      John Chen -- Executive Chairman & Chief Executive Officer

      That's great. That's very good question. I need to get clarification. The first question -- what was it? Could you repeat your first question?

      Paul Steep -- Scotia -- Analyst

      Yeah. You've talked about adding more sales headcount, I'm just sort of looking at the pacing of what you've done in terms of investments. Is that already sort of in the envelope, or you're thinking about stepping on the gas a lot harder than your EV, as you continue to win deals?

      John Chen -- Executive Chairman & Chief Executive Officer

      Right, right. I -- we have made a -- thanks for the quick question. So, as you all know me, this -- I've been here for seven years, and I always been focused on making money, running a profitable business. And so, call bb the other hand, in the last year, I recognized that the business needs investment to step on the gas, we used to work. And so for the time being, and we had done that in the last two quarters, to three quarters. But for the time being, I'm not going to be so focus on loss versus profit as far as it's manageable, meaning that it's not going to be a wages, and it's not to [Indecipherable] lot of my cash, burning along my cash, then we are going to step on the gas and continue hiring and continue to increase. And the idea is, since we now have the products and we could generate a pipeline, if I could close the pipeline with more feet on the streets [Phonetic] and channel partners, and so forth, we will may [Phonetic] grow the business and then that will then create a profit that I needed to offset a very profitable source of revenue, which was licensing. So, and licensing, as you all know, I'm not getting an evaluation of the licensing. That is the recognition of my stock price, and partly because this is a lumpy, and a lot of you have expressed that you actually don't know how to measure, valued at and you don't know how to think about the growth part of it. So that's all fair. So I believe that while we could -- while we have very fresh set of portfolios with good average life span in the portfolio that we should monetize at one time, take that proceeds to step on the gas and then invest into the cyber business, which we know there is a high growth. And we know we caught up in the product gap. And then also -- and hence grow IoT and invest in IVY, which is the future revenue source, which could be significant. And we have a big partner in Amazon there. So those are all, I believe, our positive value creation for BlackBerry.

      Big Brother: Whitney Calls Out Derek F.'s Rude Comments on BB Comics

      Whitney Williams bashed Derek Fraizer for his rude comments regarding her BB Comics character during Wednesday night's episode of Big Brother.

      Whitney Williams called out Derek Fraizer for his rude comments regarding her BB Comic photo during Wednesday night's episode of Big Brother. Whitney started off season 23 strong by winning the title of team captain for the Aces' team; however, Whitney was evicted during the fourth week of the game.

      Big Brother BB Comics has been a favorite tradition on the show for many seasons now. BB Comics is a reoccurring veto competition on the show. Although only the remaining houseguests get to compete in BB Comics, all 16 houseguests have a BB Comic made about them. The comics are unique to each houseguests and typically focus around a specific trait or moment from inside the house involving the individual. The comics are typically mailed to each houseguest following the conclusion of the season.

      On Wednesday, September 15's episode of Big Brother, the remaining houseguests, which solely consist of the Cookout alliance members, competed in BB Comics. After watching the episode, Whitney did not appreciate the comments Derek made regarding her comic character. Whitney took to her Instagram Story Wednesday night to bash Derek for "sexualizing" her. As viewers watched Derek compete for the veto, they also heard his commentary on the comics from his Diary Room session. Derek said, "Are we sure call bb want to talk about Witney's comic book? She had that workout top on." He then emphasized "workout top" once again. Prior to Whitney leaving the Big Brother house, she and Derek bickered over this workout top. Derek claimed it was too sexy for the gym.

      Derek continued on to question fans, "Would you let your kids read this comic book? Look at it. Their husband comes home with this comic book, for the kids. Or for himself." In the episode, Derek then continued on to rave over Alyssa Lopez's sexy comic book. Derek admitted Alyssa looked "amazing" in her "Bikini Genie" comic. Whitney shared a clip of Derek's analysis of both her own comic book as well as Alyssa's. She too admitted that she loves Alyssa as a person and described her comic book character with a fire emoji. Whitney then added, "But I'm sorry. does anyone else see anything wrong with @thederekfraizer 's opinion?" Needless to say, Whitney will most likely not be rooting for Derek to be the winner of Big Brother 23.

      It is perceived that Whitney was trying to point out the different ways Derek sexualized both her and Alyssa in their comic book characters. Although Whitney's character was actually wearing more clothes than Alyssa's character, Derek deemed her BB Comic to be inappropriate for kids and even husbands. On the other hand, Alyssa was call bb in a tiny bikini but Derek praised her for the way she looked. Despite not appreciating the way Derek perceived her comic book, Whitney's emotions were overpowered with excitement and gratitude that she actually has her very own BB Comic. This is a dream come true for any longtime Big Brother fan.
