re: RIM Moves Against Pirated Android Apps On PlayBook
Adoption of the Playbook devices by consumers is the biggest hurdle for both RIM and for Blackberry developers. Maybe RIM should take their time in eliminating sideloading, so that Playbook can actually get some traction in the market. Then there will be a MARKET for developers.

Agreed with the 2 posts below, Rim can't afford to lose what very few users it has left. The people that pickup the last few Playbooks are the last hold outs of RIM, These are the guys you want to piss off the least, these are the guys that are the Devs and the true hardcore fans. But I guess RIM does not care, and it really come down to this "Rim just does not care anymore"

I think RIM needs to STFU and take whatever attention it can get at this point. Pissing off your last 10 customers isn't a good idea.

RIM is already dead. They just haven't gotten the memo yet.
