quote: After years of inferior product, sagging earnings, recent unexplained multiple continent outages and product delays, RIM executives this week capped off a disastrous 2011 with more bad news. The company shattered any hope of seriously competing with iOS and Android in 2012 with the news that their Blackberry 10 smartphones, originally slated for "early 2012" are delayed until late 2012 (read: 2013). The company also took an un-needed PR hit last week when two drunk executives were forced off a flight for being violently and ridiculously drunk. The reality-TV meets AOL level of total dysfunction has more than a few people wondering exactly how RIM co-CEOs Mike Lazaridis and Jim Balsillie still have jobs.
