    Sometimes I feel sorry for RIM. They were doing so well but when they started the co-CEO nonsense things went south fast and continue in that direction. I don't know that they really get it or will ever recover. It's sad to witness.

    RIM lost its focus and future when it decided to be all things to all mobile consumers. AA

    Agreed. You just can't run a company like that by committee...you'll always be behind the curve and the resulting products will always be inferior. Still...it's too bad as I believe competition is good for everyone. It spurs innovation and growth. I'd hate to see the game boil down to two or three players.
