Gods and Gadgets: Research In Motion’s Changing Kismet
RIM CEO Thorsten at the Blackberry World 2012 convention
As a general rule (if by “general rule” you mean “hopeful majority’s belief”), a streak of bad luck can only go so far. After all, the goddess Fortuna’s Wheel is a wheel for a reason: As the part on
top can rotate to the bottom, so can the bottom part end up on top, and so on and so forth adinfinitum. That is, although fortunes are random for the most part, the consensus is that as theWheel of Fortune turns, so do our fates experience corresponding ebbs and flows.
For the cynical, the real world doesn’t really work like that,
be damned. Still, Ireserve a smidgen of faith that Research In Motion could still bounce back from near-demise, ifonly because the romantic in me wants to think so.
