Blackberry has gone the way of the picture tube television. I have never owned a blackberry and never will because I feel the same way about them as I do about Apple. Proprietary Systems annoy and bother me, I like freedom and choice. RIP RIM...

So...RIM...do you still need "co-CEO's"?
Get ready for some huge investor pressure here in the next few months.

While its pretty obvious that RIM has done themselves a boat load of harm, the condition of the global economy has also played a role in what devices people buy these days...

funny... I thought earlier this year that Nokia would be leading the death-plunge, and they sort of did for a while, but it seems that Microsoft gave them a "golden parachute"...
HP's WebOS devices, which I thought would have the best chance of survival against the non-Android/iOS phones, followed like a little lemming, and when Nokia stopped short... well, HP decided to grab the corporate-suicide banner and lead the death-plunge anew...
As for RIM... well, after WebOS's fall, I thought for sure that BlackBerry would start to vie for that "3rd Mobile Ecosystem" spot with Microsoft's Windows Phone... and yet, they are bungling it pretty badly. Even though Symbian and WebOS will be gone, BlackBerry is not showing a whole lot of liveliness at the moment. I never really liked BlackBerry, but for the sake of "more choice", I hope RIM does better before they end up following WebOS and HP over the cliff...

RIM your products are a failure and garbage and nothing changes. Just close the doors already
