quote: Apparently Jason Mick's day is ruined if he doesn't troll RIM in some way. He's like a little child, crying and spinning news in negative light every time he sees the word "RIM" somewhere. Pathetic.
quote: have you ever thought of sending me all this good news you think RIM is having?
quote: what do you think is so much better about their handsets than Apple, Android, and Windows Phone? They DO have great keyboards
quote: having owned a Storm
quote: why BlackBerry?
quote: http://www.bing.com/search?q=Playbook+2.0+CES&qs=n... is a good start for you :)
quote: Storm is nothing like Torch 9850/9860, I understand your anti-RIM bias based on this ancient Strom thing, but isn't it time to update your fact base and stop comparing latest SGS II etc to the ancient crappy BB phone which is so old and outdated? Storm was one of the earliest attempts to make a full touch screen BB phone and now they are at the THIRD iteration, and you are still trolling RIM based on their FIRST iteration. Tell me, don't you look dumb after doing this? I think you do :)
quote: I liked its multitasking and web browser more than iPad's (read Anand's review if you want more details about these two differentiating points), hence I feel that RIM is on track to come back with some nice mini-Playbook-like QNX phones, and you are of course free to troll RIM further based on how bad your ancient Storm was. A lot of Android fanboys here appreciate your posts very much, so feel free to continue. Just don't expect any respect from me.
quote: you were long known on here as the "blind Apple fanboy"
quote: why do you think so many people are going with Apple or Android instead?
quote: the guy who pwns a crazy PC troll like Motoman or cheesy must be Apple troll himself
quote: but it's just PC troll being pwned here by a normal guy
quote: I love local idiots. DT is the best forum definitely, I've never seen so many people with mental problems around :)))
quote: RIM will die not because of poor handsets, but lack of apps
quote: Is this targeted at a child audience? or teenage and young women? It really seems to miss the mark.
quote: It's all just tough love <3. Pirks is adorable, just like RIM's superheroes.
quote: Now, if RIM really wanted to get people back into their fold, they should go for the dark and gritty, like Batman.
quote: ...so they just need to hire Frank Miller?
quote: Can't sell smartphones, may as well transition into an animation company by researching in motion.
quote: My gf teaches beauty students in the UK. She says at her college and every other one she's been to 99% of the students have Blackberries. Pink ones. Seriously.Apparently it's the free, secure messaging that was the driving force initially; now it's that everyone else has one and you won't get messaged if you don't.So there are still non-business markets for RIM and this campaign is clearly aimed at them.
