“As we look ahead to 2013, it’s becoming increasingly clear that the new year provides an unprecedented opportunity for Research in Motion to make a huge comeback,” Rob Enderle scribbles for CIO.
“This is largely because the market is dominated by two platforms: Android, which is seen as an unsecure malware magnet, and iOS, which comes from a firm that has never learned to spell “‘IT,'” Enderle blathers. “In fact, Apple’s biggest failures were Lisa and the Apple Server, both created on Steve Jobs’ watch (Lisa was even his product, initially) and both targeted at the IT market.”
MacDailyNews Take: Rob Enderle. King of the nonsensical non sequitur. As for spelling “IT”…

Enderle drivels, “While phones and tablets are largely a consumer play, they are increasingly being used for business. Even in a BYOD world, IT still has a great deal of say about the hardware connected to its networks and services. As we start 2013, and as RIM brings out its next-generation products, the company will stand alone as the only mobile solutions provider focused on IT first and the needs of users later.”
MacDailyNews Take: Yes, by all means, let’s go back to catering to the whims of the IT doofus, ignoring the needs of people who actually make the company money and forcing shit tech on them. Unfortunately for Enderle and his ilk, those days are over/ending and, no, we’re not going back.
Enderle prattles, “This is an unprecedented opportunity. As a result, 2013 could be an amazing year for RIM.”

MacDailyNews Take: We’ve iCal’ed the rants of this poor delusional bastard for copious use in the future.
This sort of baseless, evidence-lacking, pump-up talk about a company that’s been so decisively passed by that their skulls are still spinning years after the dust settled on their corpses reminds us of the final years of Palm, Inc.
Where’s Palm now? Dead.
