RIM attack Apple Store in Sydney

Too little too late and too misguided

Is this a 'death throw' of a dying company?

The truly delicious thing is that everybody THOUGHT it was Samsung's doing.

For one, it says a lot about Samsung that this sort of idiocy seemed totally in character for them.

The clincher, however, is that not only did RIM utterly and completely fail at being "cool", but that somebody else got all the credit and resulting publicity.


Double whammy.

I don't understand the whole message. Who is supposed to "Wake Up" ? Apple ? Apple users ?

Let alone the irony, this coming from a zombie company.

Pretty hilarious.

Even though it wasn't their doing, Apple needs to get Samsung in line, though.

Point on. When I found out it wasn't Samsung's doing but RIM, I thought to myself »Who the eff is RIM?«

Well, they unveiled the BlackBerry 10 platform. It's me or does the Cascades approach look a bit like Metro at 60fps.?

They still need a halo phone; what happened to 'London'?, cause the BlackBerry Porsche Design P9981 is old and expensive for no reason.
