    This was written in July 2012 by a tech journalist. I can't help but think that he was absolutely correct...

    Some really good points I think they should heed. Some that are terrible. Good read for sure.

    " Conclusion
    It's pretty simple: RIM has to simplify its product line, cut its workforce, hire a visionary and build the next great thing. How long should that take? Well, for Apple the gap between Jobs reappearing on the scene and the launch of the iPod, its first breakaway product, was five years. Rubinstein (let's assume he comes out of retirement to take the job) might not have that long - but if RIM can stop burning cash on lost causes like the PlayBook, focus its spending on a few products, keep a core audience (teenagers and businesses and carriers) then it can come through this.

    Well, here's hoping."

    Ok they've done the first two things on the list. That was the easy part. Hiring a visionary? Building the next great thing? Not so easy.

    I think its a good read also, I agree with needing a visionary,cutting cost and the need to rid of all the different phones!! Apple built quite an empire with one phone!

    The phone success came on the back of iTunes and the iPod.
    You take those two items away and who knows how successful the phone would have been.

    Who knows how successful Apple would have been without those lines of business.
