The situation at RIM is pretty ugly right now. They need to finish the PlayBook and launch a bunch of awesome new phones. In the meantime, their financials are reflecting their product situation, which unfortunately means layoffs, starting today apparently.

A suggestion? Keep the hard-working engineers. Maybe start with one of the CEOs. Mike Lazaridis is a rare chief exec that started as an engineer, so he knows what he makes, inside and out. He just needs to work with somebody who's got a broader vision. [BusinessInsider]
