RIM Layoffs

Raj Perumal Raj Perumal Profile: Raj Perumal

Hi folks! So as you may have heard by now, RIM has laid off 2000 people. This is just nuts.

This never had to happen! RIM just needed to pull it’s head out of it’s own you know what and start to innovate. Instead they were full of themselves and kept going down the same old path.

What they need to ask themselves is why Apple and Android are winning. Then they need to learn from that and innovate to show something different to the world. Because the same old stuff just ain’t working anymore. Now 2000 employees are unfortunately paying the price.

RIM might have lots of money, but if they keep doing things with blinders on I guarantee there will be more bad news ahead.
