Seems like a tradition ...
That every time the mobile unit goes sour, people assume that it'll be eliminated.
I used to be inside - and after a while, you could almost set the clock to it.
So what do you have left if you spin off/sell mobile, exactly? What division is left that can have the potential to make big gobs of cash should an actual bright idea come forth?
If they were going to bug out of the mobe (sorry) business, you'd think they'd have picked any of the other times that they tanked it - the analog/digital debacle - the early 2000s.
