LaidBack saidWait, so this post isn't about rimming?Damn it!1
LaidBack saidWait, so this post isn't about rimming?It was the only reason I checked.
xrichx saidBlackberry needs to try harder. The more competition there is, the more it forces the others to innovate. I'm sure they won't ever go away. But at their current pace, they'll remain a niche for business/corporate users.I got a droid/smartphone at the request of my boss.
GwgTrunks saidYeah, Blackberry needs to go away. Supporting industry standards, but making you jump through hoops to access those standards? Fuck that.
I used to just ignore employees who needed a Blackberry set up. When asked why, I told them wasting my day getting their phone to work wasn't worth my time.
ChangeofName saidRuggedRanger15 saiddespite everyone supposedly dumping blackberry they added another million users.. they now have 78 million active users.
does that supposedly explain why their stock price fell 90% in the past year?
ChangeofName saidyeah that is true to some degree. volatility is driven by market risk and emotion at times. that does not explain how billions of dollars worth of projected cash flows disappears though (that is how a price of a underlying asset is determined - the present value of its projected future cash flows).
This is looking at the long-term trend.
You'd be exactly where you where had you invested 10 years ago from today.
Looks like the bubble popped.
ChangeofName saidyeah but Apple created the best innovative product at the turn of the century and continued to do so for the past decade, in fact they have excess cash flow that is actually detrimental to their growth prospects.
RIM appears to have been over bought and over valued.
sure they could come out with a product that surpasses the iPhone, although they already have lost market share to Apple so I dont foresee that happening anytime soon.
Their competition is obviously Apple, which is the market leader and competes with the likes of Samsung and other well-established manufacturers in the same industry. Ur argument is that they need competition, it looks like they have plenty..
