Ben Parr works for CNET not CNBC, right? He should stick to telling us about tech not trying to analyze past company performance. As anyone knows about the stock market, its not where the stock has been but where it is going. Its all about future earnings and growth, not past performance

Therefore, that quote comes across as extremely immature for someone who might be writing to be taken seriously. These are tech companies available to every consumer, not football teams. He also did not present a compelling case for someone to risk disappointment either. The size of an R & D department is leagues less important than the talent you have within them.

Article: "RIM/BB10 is the future/No stopping BlackBerry". CB Fans: "What a great article"
Article: "RIM/BB10 won't help. They already lost too much". CB Fans: "Wow, what a stupid, biased article" etc.
Conclusion, either praise BB10 or get off.

Talk about the new OS compared to others. Talk about the economies RIM is strong and weak in compared to others. Talk about what RIM has planned for app selection for the new OS compared to others.
In other words, make your arguments make sense, or be rightfully ridiculed.

These tech writers are suppose to be well infromed journalist in the tech world yet they post opinions like regular street joe who does'nt do research goes by what he see's and hearsay.So to post articles like some blog spots have is poor journalisim how can an editor even sign off on it.Dont underestimate these tech writers they have alot of influence these guys could create negative association and serious damage to brands.
Some of these post about BB10 have been poor journalism. As a tech bloggers,tech enthusiasttech lovers they should be welcoming all new tech and software to the the game welcoming reinventions and innovations.They should also be neutral until doing full review of products not posting like regular street joe thats the problem.
RIM has gone about its business and used teh publicity to its advatage so its all good.

Another Bias Article on BB10
well its clear the writer of that article has an agenda. i wonder if people of those positions get a little "gift" for writing things like that. i mean im sure apple/android producers are directly paying or giving out free devices...but there are always ways to influence.
Just a thought.

Anyone who writes anything against BB is 'bias'
Anyone who writes anything good about RIM is 'visionary' and 'excellent'.
That sums it up, right?
Remember, these are opinions! Are we seriously going to open an indignant thread for every single uncomplimentary article about RIM/BB10?

If you want to write a very lazy negative blog, then be prepared to be taken to task on it. What's wrong with that?

If you won't task people who post positive articles or threads without any 'empirical evidence' or 'proper research', why get all hot and bothered about a 'negative article'?
I suggest you seek more joyful things in life to enjoy if a random blogger can easily get you this upset by merely professing his personal opinion!
Now I feel inclined to 'take you to task' since you accuse me of being biased with no 'proper research' and 'empirical facts'...simply lazy commenting!

Objectives are :
1. Flush the current carriers stock of former devices (today, RIM ships LESS than carriers sell : read Chris article abt this)
2. Keep the number of subscribers as high as possible
3. Keep a strong position in emerging markets (the very near future big market). On that topic, remember mid and low range BB10 devices are due [pinch of salt here] 6 months after launch. I do believe BB10 on mid/low range devices will be astonishing: who can compete ?
