    BlackBerry was lynched by it's former friends when it stopped listening. Understand that several members of Pinstack (along with BBForums) were the vital step that propelled BlackBerry to the consumer market. When we all got involved, BlackBerry was still focusing on corporate accounts. It was only when we as a whole started doing our own testing, development, etc. and reporting to BlackBerry how they could get into the consumer market.

    BlackBerrys problem always was complacency and the fact that the decision makers in Waterloo believed that they knew better than anyone else. Before the demise of BlackBerry, there were NUMEROUS BB "OG's" who were still attempting to help them, give them ideas, thoughts, etc. However, in typical BlackBerry style, they went with the "We know best" attitude, and that pushed most of that core base away that helped get them to where they were.

    When I left, I had had enough. I saw the direction BlackBerry was headed and knew they weren't going to keep competitive in the market and eventually would have a downfall if they didn't change things, and that's what happened.

    I won't dance at BlackBerrys funeral. Because of BlackBerry, I made quite a few friends, made a good amount of money, got goodies, free prototypes, had WES and other conferences paid for on BB's dime. It was fun while it lasted. However, when you turn your back on those who helped you get where you are, don't be surprised when they don't stay loyal.

    There was a plethora of issues that brought BlackBerry to it's knees, way too much to ever be able to type up without it looking like a college thesis.

    However, iPhone didn't kill BlackBerry. Android didn't kill BlackBerry. The carriers didn't kill BlackBerry. The users didn't kill BlackBerry. The internet didn't kill BlackBerry. BlackBerry killed itself.

    Great post, and to the point.
    No business runs on sentiment. BB knows that now.
