RIM is NOT exiting the Consumer Market

     This is of particular importance to me, since I'm a Blackberry user.  I like the interface and so on.

     However, they are still in financial trouble.

     Part of the problem is caused by the fact that for the same money (or a little more), one could often purchase an Android based mobile phone that is more capable.

     It also doesn't help they have announced that on BB OS 10, it won't support, at least not natively, software for earlier BB OS, requiring developers to rewrite software.

     When I got my current Blackberry, I had to think hard whether I wanted another Blackberry, or an Android based device.  If current trends continue, the case for an Android based device will likely be even stronger.

     No one wants to be on a sinking ship.  As someone who used PalmOS to the bitter end, I know what that's like, and it's not a good place to be.

TV becomes "Pandora-like"...

What... you mean where you tell 'em what shows you like and they essentially promise to never play those shows but only shows that are similar to those shows? Brilliant!
