    Nope, didn't read any of those. But I did read this:

    Mobile Opportunity: What's really wrong with BlackBerry (and what to do about it)

    And this:

    News Headlines

    And this:

    Android Dominates iPhone, BlackBerry in Market Share

    Now, this could all be wrong, and RIM could report fantastic results on Thursday. But after the guidance change and Balsillie's comments, I doubt it.
    But you said the user base is shrinking. It's destined to plateau. It may actually contract this year, but the perception is that it has been shrinking since the iPhone launched. Not the case. But anyone who thought the platform wouldn't reach a saturation point is in denial, and that happens to every tech company, and they often fall off the planet soon after. It's a cautionary tale for any tech company at the top of the heap.
