Hi all, so the RIM who makes the Playbook and venerable BlackBerry is looking rough around the edges. They have laid off 2000 employees (link here) and their PlayBook wasn’t received with a lot of excitement for a new product. However, RIM has gotten approval from a government security organization of note. NIST has given the PlayBook the FIPS approval which means that the PlayBook could be used in some government agencies soon. This could be a huge deal for RIM given that government spending and employment rate is on the high side right now. Good for RIM for making this happen. You can read about the approval here.

Until next time,
