Problem is, RIM isn't innovating. They're playing catch-up after resting on their laurels.

No, problem is that RIM didn't recognize that it dominated a smaller market. The security-concerned business market. They wanted to be a consumer company when their strength was in business and security.

They overextended their reach because they were not satisfied with a solid market that they had won. They wanted to play with the "big boys" and it cost them.

You honestly think they would say here you go charlie.

Not a fan of Dish or Ergen, but I don't think there is ANYTHING that DirecTV senior management would not do if they were offered sufficient personal financial reward.

Sounds familiar. Someone else used "litigation as a profit center" and "went to war" in court against competitors, suppliers, whoever. That was Ross Perot.
