I tried to keep the Asshat of the Week Award (AOWA) dormant, in order to preserve the institution. However, this fucking interview with the RIMM CEO.
Becky Quick, long term interviewer of the old crusty one, Warren Buffett, could not have done a worse job with the prick from RIMM. I want you to appreciate the fact that RIMM lost the smartphone wars because their management was incompetent. Stubbornly, they stuck with the stupid physical keyboard, instead of the iPhone touch screen technology that Samsung stole. The result: RIMM is heading for the trash heap of once great companies gone bad, joining the likes of NOK, EK and AMD.
THEY FUCKING DESTROYED THE ENTIRE COMPANY!
Instead of pressing the CEO of RIMM, Becky decided to praise the virtues of the physical keyboard. Really? It’s equal to interviewing the CEO of betamax, circa 1993, and telling him how awesome it was compared to VHS. It’s like praising the rotary phone versus digital, incandescent lights over LED, big ass tube(d) teevee over LCD LED, beeper over cell phone, Burger King over Five Guys, Lycos over Google, Shoprite over Whole Foods.
Very pretty, but ASSHAT!!!

She’s an asshat I’d happily wear
Calling “Erin Burnett’s Booty Call”?
Further proof that women belong in the kitchen.
If this is a joke it’s neither funny nor creative; if it isn’t a joke it’s grotesque. Be more modern.
It’s official now- she’s old.
She’s not so pretty. Anyone can draw a pretty face on an ugly canvas.
I like my keyboard, but its on an android phone.
I’m pretty sure I heard Cramer lauding her this morning for conducting “such a great interview”
He wants in.
I’d hit that
LeFly “keep[s]…(AOWA) dormant, in order to preserve the institution.”
See, $IBC has values we can all learn from.
The whole CNBS crew should get titanium asshats.
Gasoline is exploding higher. 0 dicksuckers wet dream. In between gulps the bus becomes the way of the poor forever.
Nokia is coming back! lol
Just another smarmy european coming to our shores sniffing about how crude we Americans really are.
I would like to interrupt this rant to congratulate Old Grandmama — aka “Royal Gold” aka “RGLD” — for breaking the hunnit dollah roll.
You go Grandmamaw!!
PS — If you are looking at Becky Quick for anything more than an odd loin-feeling engendered by sweater-boobz, frosted hair and an opiate-glazed expression, then you are barking up a tree that is not really a tree at all, but rather a telephone pole with a pair of sneakers hanging from one arm.
I beg you to bring the asshat ot the week back. The world needs it. Many worthy candidates in need of righteous recognition. Personally I can see the award replacing the emmys
Too many misspelled
I was going to say…i agree with your comments but there really are too many misspelled words typed on those virtual keyboards.
Next we’ll be told praising the physical keyboard is like praising the fully furred beaver. Simile sophistication is not simple.
Women: Know Your Limits !
Her unwillingness to have a career-ending, on-air meltdown, (wherein she kicks the already-dead dog that is RIMM) warrants an award by itself.
But her preference for the physical keyboard is an abomination that humanity cannot abide. A host of personal rebukes is demanded in this regard.
“All that is necessary for the triumph of evil is that good men do nothing.”
Becky is a robot. Almost all of the reporters are. They talk about aapl an inhumane amount of times each day is all the proof anyone needs.
Fucking hippies and fucking robots I don’t know which is worse.
They don’t know what the Fuck they are talking about
I like the QWERTY – it’s the only reason I still carry a BB
Now get off my lawn you rotten kids
I’d SHOMP that.
I have a Blackberry and a Playbook which I generally am happy with but if people think that BB10 is going to leapfrog Apple or Android or even Windows they are living in a dream world. Those OS have huge user bases and enormous libraries of applications and unless RIM has thought of a must-have application nobody else has thought of they will not succeed as a mass market device.
Their only chance is to retain the business market by building a comprehensive application library working on their secure server network. However their application development these days has been really disappointing, slow and unresponsive. No Skype or Netflix on the Playbook. Come on.
RIMM going down the shitter has nothing to do with keyboards.
RIMM never produced a decent mobile browser. They paid the IRON PRICE for their transgression.
Plus no ecosystem (iTunes, Google Play etc).
She does look good though.
Incandescent lights own.
