    They sold 2x as many iPhones with 50x the number of commercials, compared to BB

    They sell more IPads because they advertise and RIM doesn't - most likely because the pb is not 'finished'. The OS2 upgrade will let them advertise a ligit product
    Then it's simple. Increase advertising 50x and RIM will sell like Apple. Problem solved. I wonder why no one thought of this before?

    I'm saying Apple is becoming the new vanilla...
    Did it occur to you that vanilla is a strategy rather than an oversight? In a world of noisy, senseless explosions and special effects, simplistic backdrops, non-celebrities, straightforward demonstration of functions, and plainspoken narration is the breath of fresh air people are hungry for.

    That means that the problem is not advertising, but the lack of a legitimate product at the moment. That is a very different thing. We have no disagreement.

    Jobs was a 4 dimensional thinker, you're thinking in one dimension

    As usual, you're way off:

    Apple's FY2011 ad expense: $933 million
    RIM's FY2011 ad expense: $705 million

    RIM needs to increase its efficiency; I'm not sure where the $705 million went.

    As usual you're a troll

    I was stating perception not amount spent - I didn't look that up. I'm always seeing iPhone/iPad advertising and rarely BlackBerry advertising

    Profound. Thanks.

    You never do, which is why you're almost always wrong (even a stopped clock is right at least once a day).

    Maybe you're watching the wrong channels; you should probably avoid the major networks and instead stick to the niche channels. I'm sure there's an "IT Pros" channel somewhere.
