Default Enormous rumor about RIM buying AltN/MDaemon

Please Login to Remove!

Can anyone substantiate this wild rumor that's starting to circulate? The publicly posted "please keep this confidential" has me assuming this is a hoax.

My thoughts exactly...makes no sense. Could this be a marketing ploy by some web savvy AltN executive? If it is...it's quite smart and would draw traffic to their site.

Gang-with all due respect, let's keep the comments centered on the topic, and lay off the personal shots. The thread will be closed otherwise.
