    It's surprising how a has-been can come back, do you remember Apple being close to bankruptcy look at them now! All that's need is a good idea, the start of Apple's come back was the IPod and ITunes, Steve Jobs took the Sony Walkman and made it better while everyone else was trying to stay with cassettes.

    What new product could RIM develop? You're right about Apple and the iPod/iTunes store.

    RIM only does phones/tablets. Other competitors do computer HW and or SW, TVs, home appliances, etc. What company that is successful only does phones?

    It seems like the phone-only companies are the ones that are failing: RIM, Nokia, Motorola (had to be bought out by Google--would have been a failure otherwise).

    ^^^ They are also getting into the car market with automation and control (QNX at least) then there is the enterprise software. I refuse to write them off as dead, I may be wrong in my life I have been wrong a lot, but I have occasionally been right

    Google´s Destruction Underway?

    Ok, next time round I'll change the title to:
    RIM´s Destruction Underway?

    That way we may start to talk Google, android, defragmentation, ICS, Kindle Fire, Amazon...

    ^^^ LOL Well looking back through the posts it seems there are more people that believe RIM will die and have similar beliefs (albeit not so obnoxious as BGR). I wonder where the 72 million BB users are? Surely some of them can help me out here?? Or are they the silent minority

    Not exactly an oil merchant, that would be someone that trades in it and makes money by never owning just buying low and selling high. I actually go out there and find it, now if you check back on some of my other posts I go into detail what we would not have if it were not for oil, one of which is the phone you are currently using. One day in the future we will invent products that do not rely on oil and you will be able to get goods/food to market without it, but till then without the stuff life would not be half as easy for us all.
