OT: RIM cedes most consumer markets

Little bit of a shock.  CTO gone.  Shifting away from consumer markets.

Re: OT: RIM cedes most consumer markets

Actually, there is a new CTO, and he's likely the perfect man for the job at this point.

 

Also, I strongly recommend against reading the interpretations of any old web site, which may well be putting a negative spin on things, or more likely these days merely parrotting others who put such a spin on it.

 

I listened to the earnings report and it didn't sound anything like "ceding most consumer markets".

 

I think the word "focus" was actually used, and when I say I'm "focusing on this thing now" I rarely mean "I'm ignore all other things from now on"...

 

Not shocked, not worried...

Re: OT: RIM cedes most consumer markets

The comment was to focus on the enterprise market and something about "~ not wanting to be everything to everybody" (paraphrase). The CTO retired and the COO "moved on to other interests". Still big news on all the news channels (biased and not).
