RIM hostile takeover of Certicom

Jason Tramer Jason Tramer Profile: Jason Tramer

In IT news, RIM is attempting a hostile takeover of Certicom. Certicom makes encryption software including those that are currently in use by Blackberries. Even though RIM posted unfavourable  news lately they clearly feel that there would be some good ROI on this acquision. Reports indicate that they attempted to speak to Certicom about a friendly acquision but never receieved a response. The cost on this is as of so far 66 million USD.
