I think Obama will survive another 4 years but RIM won't.

The problems for RIM really started in 2010 with the advent of Android. Up til then they had been doing really well and had increased sales - even with the launch of the iPhone in 2007.

So what did they do then? They took their eye of the smartphone ball and decided to launch a tablet. Fine for a computer company such as Apple or Samsung to make a tablet, but a phone maker like RIM?

A worthless vanity project - and while the Playbook is a reasonably capable device, it remains largely unsold despite huge write-offs.
