oh woe is me,,,,,,
only one 14 passanger private jet? how will they cope?
why do they need any private jets anyway? have they not heard of BBM?
Beleaguered mobile firm Research in Motion is really scraping the bottom of the barrel, and is looking to sell one of its two corporate jets to try to save some money. The BlackBerry-maker has put its nine-passenger Dassault Falcon 50EX up for sale in an attempt to bag $6m to $7m, a person familiar with the matter told …
Guess that means that only 14 RIM staff can get drunk in the air at once, this will clearly lead to staff reduction as without the option of getting drunk and disorderly during a flight many will leave of there own accord.
Not saying RIM are banned on alot of flights due to there managments behaviour, but I think I just did.
Unfortunately this is round two for me, being a resident of southern ON Canada (obviously round one was Nortel fucking me in the ass), so I've already looked past RIM. Idiot marketing strategists combined with indifference to marketing trends. A winning combination of confidence in the local papers and massive losses. On the bright side probably some new high end real estate coming on the market for cheap in Waterloo ON.
"We’re looking at options with both our aircraft costs and finding ways to reduce our travel while still making sure we keep in close contact with our partners around the world,"
I have heard of a number of commercial airlines that offer flights between various points on the globe, some of which have bigger 'executive' seats near the front.
If your travel budget is shot, try sending an email instead. Android has an email client built in.
Make the pig troughers fly the North American equivalent of Ryan Air. While they have fuck all to amuse themselves in El Shitto Airways cattle class, they will have to use their Blackberrys to entertain themselves, then they will find out why the rest of the population think they are shite.
The North American equivalent of Ryan Air? If you're talking about service levels and absolute contempt for passengers, that would be any US based carrier then.
The difference between US carriers and Ryan Air are that Ryan Air has a more modern fleet of aircraft, is better at running to schedule and actually makes a profit.
I sincerely hope that they don't completely fail. BES is an essential part of our company and for the moment there are no viable alternatives.
Android = Not trusted.
MS = A little bit shaky - W8 isn't quite ready and appears to be a risk. Might be the eventual solution though.
Apple = C'mon guys get serious were talking corporate not Fanboi.
"We’re looking at options with both our aircraft costs and finding ways to reduce our travel while still making sure we keep in close contact with our partners around the world," the firm said. “It’s all part of the effort to find ways to reduce costs and drive efficiencies that Thorsten Heins has talked about.”
If only there was some kind of device that would allow them to contact their partners around the world without travelling.
They need cash quickly. Which means that their resources are exhausted. Their accounts surely are fake.
When any company resorts to selling its assets like this other than firing employees is just toast.
How many months can still last anymore?
What are you talking about?
SCO went bankrupt in 2007..

Cartoon in today's papers in many Canadian cities:
So many people saying RIM is dead. Yet the share prices dipped 57% in a year, it's still a valuable company based on Market Cap. I'm guessing the patents are worth something...
There is one worrying aspect though - Palm apparently had a good O/S in WebOS, HP failed to make it work - too little too late. This could be the case with RIM's very late OS revamp due next year.
