Very nice write up in CNN Money.
You were trying to talk sense into RIM investors when I started posting on this board when apple was $265. But I believe you have been here much longer.
Thanks. The print copy will be out next week. I bought in 2004 (AAPL = $30). It took 4 months of research which included lots of leg work. The secret is to invest in a company and not in a stock. You should also invest in an industry you are familiar with. Marketing speaks volumes on how a company views themselves to their customers and this is what many people do not get. It is perceived the other way around. The best product in the world will not sell if you don't have a laser focused marketing plan. RIM is confused as to what they are and what they want to accomplish.
RIM still sees themselves as a smartphone company. This is a serious mistake. It's a computer world now and soon the term "smartphone" will be as obsolete as "typewriter", "PDA" and "calculator". Heck, even the tablet term will become obsolete.
But this is a free message board and anyone that expects quality conversations from here will get what they paid for. Private message boards, which are not free and do not allow anonymity are worth the price.
Oh, and juvenile comments are also not allowed on private boards.
The demise of the smartphone has been greatly exaggerated..."[AT&T) is selling smartphones at a record pace -- 6.4 million already in the first two months of the quarter, according to Ralph de la Vega, CEO of AT&T's mobility arm. De la Vega, speaking at an investor conference today, said he now expects to sell 26 million smartphones this year, 1 million more than previously expected." December 5, 2012
AppleTV..... Apple may also have an identity problem, ya think?

Pull your head out of Jobs' hole and look around before making ignorant comments. You know nothing about the direction RIM is headed toward and what their plans for the future are. Nor do you understand anything about the tech industry. You sound like a fool with your dumb/arrogant prognostications about what's going on in tech.
joeclueless, you are nothing butt an #$%$, you suck at everything you do but it is obvious that you lie too, who in their right mind posts over a 1,000 stupid posts to an investment they have never owned. Only a #$%$ like you Terry Gregory.
I knew this tread would attract all the legacy longs to post. I also knew they would not post under their old aliases like dontfightape and jkxchicago but they would prefer copycat aliases to share their desires to be serviced by a man.
Is it a Canadian thing or a RIM thing that attracts same sex fantasy postings? The jury is still out on that one. Envy is an ugly trait.
