    RIM responded: http://gizmodo.com/5817208/rim-resp...ticisms-with-more-nonsensical-business-jargon

    I think this comment summed up their response nicely:

    Steve should hire the guy who wrote that letter. He's working for the wrong company.

    That's exactly what RIM is saying! Honestly RIM may not be Apple but they have allot of potential to make a much better product whatever that results in. There OS looks like 2006...

    Honestly regardless of the type of skills he has its clear this guy has the type of open mindedness, humbleness, and fresh senior level management skills that a big company like Apple could use.

    RIM's response shows how idiotic they are, and they don't realize that response is the very reason why they fail in the digital market: they ignore constructive criticism.

    Exactly. Further into that analysis of it; they didn't even pretend like they might have a problem...its like there a drunk alcoholic shooting up heroin that just crashed a car and got HIV and your saying 'you have a problem' and their response is 'NO NO I DON'T HAVE A PROBLEM!!!!111 ITS YOUR PROBLEM YOUR NOT SMART!!'....Ridiculous...

    I don't see any situation where RIM doesn't just bleed out over the next few years.

    Perhaps not. The guy cared enough about his company to not just bail out. And at least RIM publicly responded.

    OTOH, it's hard to visualize an Apple employee who wouldn't be too afraid to speak up. It also seems likely that Jobs would simply fire them, then pretend it never happened.

    Gotta reiterate this point. It's sad that everyone *but* senior management got this. That may be because there are a lot more people who have worked under senior management and realize just how deaf/blind they can be to good ideas/constructive criticism.

    I'm guessing he wrote the letter because no one would listen to him. They've definitely heard him NOW!
