Bounces off the RIM
I don't have many/any big thoughts on RIM's move to dump its co-CEO's. It was time. Whatever they were doing clearly wasn't working any longer. It's a little scary that the new guy is a RIM insider who says his job is to stay the course "because it's the right one". RIM isn't Apple. The co-CEO's are not Steve Jobs. And the new CEO is not Tim Cook. However with a new Board Chair and a new Board Director, change seems inevitable. Hopefully, everyone understands the tough job ahead. Although BB sightings are still possible ('traditionalists', women with nails, kids with 3 year cell phone plans), they are hardly what they used to be. Turning that around won't be business as usual.
