My Blackberry is pretty much toast now. So is RIM.
Given the iOS5 and iPhone 4s general availability tomorrow, I fancy a conspiracy theory:
Steve Jobs, on his deathbed, struggles forward and breaks the glass protecting the Red Button. Moments later, an army of embedded agents are instructed to execute Operation RIMshot, resulting in a massive, rolling failure — a final stroke in Steve’s personal and long campaign to infiltrate and undermine the Blackberry platform’s marketshare and mindshare. Make no mistake. This is war.
Operation RetireTheReplicant is in the queue. Android users beware — you have been warned.
