PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless That's what you get for not delivering. As had been anticipated for a while now, the two co-CEOs of Research In Motion, Mike Lazaridis and Jim Balsillie, will step down from their posts. Chief operating officer Thorsten Heins will take over the role of CEO, while the two former co-CEOs will move to other functions within the company.

From the last paragraph: "We'll see where it all goes, but I'm not exactly bringing with confidence."

The phrase you were looking for is "brimming with confidence". The brim is the top-edge of a pot (or other vessel). Brimming is when the contents, often a liquid, have reached the brim of the pot, and therefore it is full. So, to be "brimming with confidence" is to be full of it.

Just trying to be helpful. I recognize that English is not your primary language.
