Looks like RIM and Steve Balmer have something that is keeping them awake at night. As Marguerite Reardon writes about in Signal Strength RIM and Microsoft are desperately trying to outdo Google and Apple. Ms. Reardon states that the two new allies are likely only to close the gap in the smartphone race. That’s right – catch up, not pass over. From the sounds of Ms. Reardon’s article, there is a lot of ho-hum going on.
In a related note, I was watching Castle last night and was surprised to see the Apple iPhone replaced by a Windows 7 mobile phone. Rick Castle has been a staunch Apple user – interesting. How much was paid by Lord Balmer for that switch?
Oh yeah and Body of Proof? iPads galore.
Redmond and Waterloo Canada may need some Tums.
