Submission + - RIM to lay off 2000 employees (edibleapple.com)

An anonymous reader writes: Things continue to look bleak for RIM. The Canadian based handset maker announced today that it plans to slash 2000 jobs to help reduce costs and redouble its efforts to remain relevant in the smartphone market and make a dent in the burgeoning tablet market. Indeed, RIM explained that the job cuts, while regrettable and the company’s first in over a decade, are a “a prudent and necessary step for its long-term success.”

Never appeal to a man's "better nature." He may not have one. Invoking his self-interest gives you more leverage. -- Lazarus Long
