    This is just the first I heard of it. I don't see how it can reflect badly on RIM. It's a path they are the sponsors but it was nothing they did that caused it.

    its very sad the bloke has died i think rim wanted press attention for the event after a lot of bad press but they did get attention for all the wrong reasons what happened was not really rim's fault but it just leaves another negitive sorey in the press hopefully they will recover from this

    It wasn't a RIM employee or a RIM employee party. Reporter's looking to add this to RIM's list of problems are just looking for negative angles.

    There was a killing at a Raiders-49ers game in last year's pre-season. Does that reflect badly on ATT since they sponsor the park or was it the NFL or one of the teams' fault? Or maybe it was just a couple of idiots that would have acted the same stupid way regardless of where they were.

    Is Apple to blame for every person that was mugged for their iPhone?

    Let's get real here.

    Good point. Sadly it looks like both Apple and RIM are doing their part to encourage organ donation, though unfortunately only one of the donations was voluntary.

    So as it turns out they were no yobs, they were both professional people, Ashley Charles the killer was an award winning creative director and Phillip Sheriff was actually working for Rim in O2 telecommunications. Go figure.
