RIM To Consider Splitting Co-CEOs

BlackBerry maker Research In Motion (RIM) has just conceded to examining its leadership structure. The company has been facing mounting pressure since its disappointing earnings call that confirmed product delays and imminent layoffs. The co-CEO structure of Jim Balsillie and Mike Lazaridis has long been criticized by shareholders and the company has finally responded with the possibility of splitting the co-CEOs.

T-Mobile Samsung Dart Hands-on and Unboxing

Okay guys I have the Samsung Dart here to show you all, amazing I know. This little guy is absolutely what you would call a mid-range Android phone, and saying mid-range is being generous.

Most have been pretty decent but this is the lower end of the bunch that is for sure.

RIM’s Damage Control was Blandly Inevitable

RIM’s Damage Control was Blandly Inevitable

What can you learn from how a company takes criticism? Headlines-a-plenty today, as an anonymous "senior RIM executive" takes the time to pen an eight part breakdown of where the Canadian company falls short and what steps it needs to take if it's to reverse its dwindling market share. RIM arguably did itself few favors with its response, either, a terse and defensive blast that questions the letter's authenticity - admittedly something we have to take on trust - and then dismisses the concerns with a wave of the hand.
