Rob Enderle strikes again. Future claim chowder? Or Stopped Clock Finally Right For Once?
Great unintentional RIM testimony? Or the greatest unintentional RIM testimony?
There’s a reason RIM got rid of its jobs.rim.com domain a long time ago.
The Verge has some great coverage, galleries, and hands-on anecdotes from what could be either RIM’s last gasp or its triumphant turnaround. I’m still going through some of it, but one question stands out in my mind: if RIM is going to focus on the enterprise, why does all of the promo material it’s released still focus on consumers, where iOS and Android dominate?
A story like this, with a headline like that, in a publication like Reuters, just a week before your annual event called “BlackBerry World,” is not the best way to start the week.
Translation: someone, please, make the pain stop at a decent price.
A number of things are very, very wrong at RIM, but its new COO-turned-CEO says everything is just super. I can’t tell if he’s trolling or just nuts.
RIM stands as a warning for any tech industry Goliath that once owned a market only to watch it get snatched away by smaller, faster moving rivals with better products and better strategies. This is a fate that could befall any company—Microsoft, Apple, Google, whatever. Though I have a hard time imagining any of them being as poorly run as is RIM.
RIM is dead. I’m glad I never wasted time covering this junk.
Great piece by Gruber calling bullshit on hollow defenses of vapid concept videos from Microsoft and RIM. Gruber nails everything that’s wrong with these videos, which were produced at a time when these two companies are getting their asses handed to them in the mobile space.
Actions, in general, speak louder than words. But in the case of these concept videos from Microsoft and RIM, I can’t tell which is louder: their words, or their lack of action.
