Blackberry – A Eulogy

Starting with the new year, I’m making the prediction that RIM is in total collapse by the end of 2014. The only question – how many companies will be too paralytically entrenched to move their infrastructure away from this black hole in time? BYOD policies will move in as the quick path of and least effort and resistance.

RIM is starting to transfer staff away from the abysmal Z10/Q10 devices and towards free (zero income) services such as Blackberry Messenger for iOS and Android. The fact that RIM bragged about how many users it grabbed when its free BBM app was released, is insane. The pod people are in control of RIM, and they are either in denial or oblivious as they spiral the drain. See more at the link below.
