    Blackberrys board of directors should probably go into the history books as the most incompetent group of people ever to be put in charge of a technology company.

    Looking at the BoD, maybe it's no wonder that things went as bad as they did for Blackberry. Most of them come from the banking industry, an industry that has very little in common with tech.

    Heck, the only I could find that has any experience with tech, is the latest addition to the board in February 2013: The former head of Sony Ericsson, another failed mobile company.

    I have a feeling that these people were chosen because Lazaridis thought he could control them, rather than any technological or business acumen.

    The worst part is that every year from the start of the 2008 decline the shareholders voted them back in!... That I just cannot fathom.
