PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless RIM has announced it's going to remove the PlayBook's ability to sideload applications. The company claims it's to prevent the piracy problems in the "chaotic cesspool of Android Market". However, the company provided no evidence, studies, or whatever to back up their claims. Considering the state of RIM's business, I'd say the company has bigger fish to fry, but alas. At this point, I'm just hoping they don't do a BeOS, but open the QNX code before they go belly-up.

I stand corrected - it seems Cobalt's multimedia and graphic framework was derived from BeOS, so I guess there was a reason not to open source it.
