I'm Not Satisfied Either (RIM)
The CEO Thorsten Heins ofRIM announced yesterday (to shareholders) that he was not satisfied with the company’s performance.
I read that one and my guesses as to what the message he was trying to get out to his Shareholders was:
- I’m a hard ass, tough guy who speaks what he thinks, and please don’t drive our stock price down but keep buying our products.
RIMs, Foot, Hand, Body and Some Random Thoughts
On the high-tech side of things, RIM announced non-inspiring numbers and the stock’s value continues to be pounded into the ground. I keep thinking I have seen a story just like this (Nortel) however I am really not sure (Nortel) where I might have seen it (NORTEL). I wish those who work there: good luck and bonne chance, I lived through it, and it is never fun in these situations.
Less RIM Jobs and Sunday's Best
Yes indeed, I can never miss out on using that double entendre, but with Research in Motion now flailing like Nortel in 2000 (I SAID IT! I MEANT IT!), what does this mean for Canada’s latest Tech Darling? I know a lot of folks who are at RIM, so I am not wishing the company bad luck, but they certainly did hire a lot of movers, shakers and sycophants from the Nortel Middle and Upper Management chain, I have to wonder. Is this the end? I have no idea, but I think tough times are ahead for them, and given I keep seeing notes on Facebook about BlackBerry outages, I gotta wonder?
