re: BlackBerry: The Fax Machine Of Its Era
I confess I am still a Blackberry user. I like the hardware keyboard and its ease for writing emails. I think RIM should have tried to focus on a security oriented federal market rather than try to compete wit iPhones and Androids for the consumer market. I hope they will stay around in their future incarnation

game-set-match. Another example of a failed management of a once great company. It joins the ranks of Xerox, Polaroid and Kodak.
