I am not trying at making the loss of 2,000 less people without jobs from any company less than what it is. But RIM investors just face the fact that if maziming their returns is what they want, the changed much come at the expense of those who made the mistakes of the last few years what allowed rivals to eclipse its place in the market and among its core customers, the enterprise users.
I hope those two thousand soon-to-be former RIM employees can get back on their feet soon.
And if employees are feeling the heat and shareholders are not will to do what is necessary to force a change in the direction of the company, Blackberry fans do not have to stay faithful to the platform.
And I get the feeling that Apple would be more than happy to satisfy their mobile needs.
