A Future-Proof Platform? Get Real.

You have to read this to believe it.

In a recent BusinessWeek article, Thorsten Heins, the 54-year-old chief executive officer of Research In Motion (RIMM) talks about his plans for the company. From the piece:

Heins says it will redefine mobile multitasking, enamor RIM to the app-developer community, and arm the company with a “future-proof” platform.

He must be shrooming.

Simon Says

Let me state the obvious: There is no such thing as a future-proof platform. Even if there were, do you think that RIM is the company to build it?
