PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless I doubt Research In Motion really knew what hit them back when the iPhone launched. I doubt they really knew what hit them when Android steamrolled the smartphone market. And, today, I still doubt they really know what the heck they are supposed to do to turn their sinking ship around. Update: RIM contacted us with a statement on the matter - they state everything in the BGR article is wrong. Read on for the full statement.

I don't listen to Internet radio, Skype, or IRC on my iPhone, nor have I had any desire to. If I do any of those, I do it on a regular laptop or desktop.

So whatever you don't need is irrelevant and whatever is good for you should be enough for everybody else? Okay, then! ;-)

Also, has it ever occurred to you that maybe you don't need a smart/app/whatever phone. Looks like you'd be fine with a dumb phone...

And for an equally as obnoxious response:

Has it ever occurred to you that there are dimensions to the success of Apple products that you're incapable of perceiving?

And how this is relevant to what we were discussing, exactly?

As pointed out by someone else, the lack of "good enough" multitasking (let alone true multitasking) was a shortcoming that even Apple felt necessary to address. Eventually. Case closed.
