Default Re: Local radio station asks for reflection on RIM

Like Dubdub....
I'm a well past 15 yo (4 1/2 x) who values security and the ability to type on the device (I actually sent back a 9810 because of the keyboard).
But I'm a 35 year computer user, and I've seen lots of great companies come and go. Rim may very well be a casualty. Nothing lasts forever, even my Harley.
I really don't think it's ALL Rim's fault - how often does a Steve Jobs come along? L is smart and driven, but not with that kind of long term vision, and B seems to be a standing antic among the N.Y analysts.
The problem is, as written above, that in most businesses you need to set deadlines and stick to them, and Rim does not. Nor does it over-deliver.
Rim may monitor sites like this, but there is never a representative who comes here and "talks" to us.
Talk about the Waterloo ivory tower!
I'll be sorry to see Rim go, but I'll adjust. Just another arrogant group like Nortel.
In the meanwhile I'll trade the stock instead of investing , and do puts every time a deadline for a release comes about.
