"Also, this site is in no way affiliated with RIM."
Do you think for a second that RIM does not troll the internet for any mention of their name, especially on sites dedicated to their product? Welcome to the 21'st century.
"What's a BlackPad?"
BlackPad was the in-house name given to the tablet project while under development. Certainly surperior to "PlayBook" except to the public school age demographic where "play" anything is viewed as the intellectual high ground.
150,000.00 CAD = 150,338.25 USD Look up the exchange rate you dummy
BlackPad was dropped way back before the PlayBook even launched... none of us here use code names once a name has been announced / product released
RIM does have legal teams looking out for the company (for instance when the original guts of the Bold 9000 showed up on eBay and almost sold for $5,000 RIM had eBay remove the lisitng), but to my knowledge they do not actively pay someone to browse forums for "feedback" they have real channels for that including their own forums.
What is Bb and why would they be watching?
