What I really think of RIM

The Research In Motion roller coaster continues. I've been at it almost non-stop since before sun-up doing interviews and writing near and far. I'm running off to another wave of interviews, so won't have time to update much here for a few hours. But I wanted to get links out to the two pieces I published this morning, as they provide a solid overview of where I really stand on RIM, how it got here, and its prospects going forward.

I hope you enjoy the read, and would appreciate any thoughts you have in a comment:

The Toronto Star. RIM’s choice: revamp standalone strategy or disappear
Yahoo! Canada. RIM cuts jobs, reports quarterly loss

More soon...

Update...Here's a rundown of additional media work I ended up doing today. It was a packed one:

  1. Business News Network (BNN). Spoke with The Street host Pamela Ritchie. about the Google Nexus 7 tablet before shifting gears into RIM. (Video here) (alternate link here).
  2. CTV Kitchener - Spoke with Meghan Furman for their 6 o'clock newscast (this is RIM's hometown TV station)
  3. CTV London - Did a one-on-one interview with anchor Tara Overholt for the 6 pm newscast
  4. CTV National News - Clip included in Parliamentary Correspondent Richard Madan's report (video here
  5. QR77 Calgary. Chatted with Dave Rutherford
  6. CBC Radio One national news desk. Spoke with Meegan Read.
  7. 640Toronto. Spoke with Arlene Bynon (did the hit just as Telus's national voice network began to crash. Managed to get the interview done just before all inbound/outbound voice traffic went quiet. Missed another hit with CJAD because of it. C'est la vie.)
  8. Newstalk 1010. Chatted with John Downs of Friendly Fire fame.
