    Back to the warehouse to figure out why RIM can't get rid of those 800k PlayBooks. If they don't sell well, I would think there would be no use for a PlayBook rep anymore...
    With that logic RIM would have got rid of their CEOs by now, too.

    If the Rumors are true about Icahn they may be doing just that!

    Actually, no.

    RIM is still making profit. The PlayBook is not. Big difference.

    I mentioned nothing about profit.

    Then what is your point? My logic suggest that if a product isn't selling well, the rep will not have a job in the future. RIM devices in general are selling well, the co-CEOs still have their job.

    I am talking about a specific product line representative. You are talking about co-CEOs that represent an entire company.

    PlayBook failure (and I'm not saying it's a failure, just an example) doesn't mean off with the co-CEOs heads. Many tech companies had failed product lines (like Apple, Microsoft and Google), and the CEOs were not fired.

    My point was more sarcasm than it was a direct tie-in to your original post. While the PlayBook isn't doing well -- like you said -- they should probably relieve revenue-reducing limbs that are associated with the PlayBook -- also like you said -- like the supposed representative. That was your point. My point, which was more poking fun, was that RIM isn't where it once was in the mobile market; sure they're staying afloat, but at one point they were innovating and making tons of money and they no longer are filling those shoes and because of that, the co-CEO's should be relieved of their duty to make room for someone who can revive RIM to its former glory.

    Ah alright. I do agree with that. I think RIM needs new leadership. A younger more in-touch mind with the consumer market.
