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!!!
