Default Jim Balsillie is leaving...

So I was out last night and I ran into some RIM employees. I was with a friend who works at RIM and they were having a conversation about what department they were in and the other person stated "oh you're under Jim's control? you're gone, sorry man you're out"

It was an incredibly bold statement followed by the person saying that Balsillie right now is being pushed out of the organization and many of the groups he is in control of right now are going to be wiped clean and rebuilt.

Obviously this is a very hard rumour to believe, even if it is a RIM employee who may or may not have that kind of insider information.

We'll see how this one pans out, if they were right I'll be gobsmacked that an employee would chose to share such information with someone who is more or less a random stranger.
