Translation of RIM’s Response to “Open Letter” from Corpspeak to English

Per the official BlackBerry Blog:

An “Open Letter” to RIM’s senior management was published anonymously on the web today and it was attributed to an unnamed person described as a “high level employee”.

We’ve started looking for the person who publicly blasted us on the web.

It is obviously difficult to address anonymous commentary and it is particularly difficult to believe that a “high level employee” in good standing with the company would choose to anonymously publish a letter on the web rather than engage their fellow executives in a constructive manner,

Everything in the letter is accurate, and we all know it…

but regardless of whether the letter is real, fake, exaggerated or written with ulterior motivations, it is fair to say that the senior management team at RIM is nonetheless fully aware of and aggressively addressing both the company’s challenges and its opportunities.

… but we will find you, and we will fucking kill you.

RIM recently confirmed that it is nearing the end of a major business and technology transition.

We have no idea what we’re doing.

A good worker, is a live worker, free to live and work! A bad worker, is a dead worker, and vice versa. Don’t be a bad worker! Bad workers are slaves - and dead. Payday for good workers has been postponed indefinitely; payday for bad workers, is cancelled.

A Measured Treatise on the Value Proposition of the PlayBook

The tech press is being way to kind on RIM’s PlayBook. Go Google for some reviews if you must, but stick around if you want it straight. 

Now there’s no way to write this without comparing a bit to the iPad, as let’s be honest, there’s no tablet market without it. None. If you think otherwise well, I’ve got a car that is powered solely on misguided hopes and dreams to sell you.

The PlayBook is offered in 16, 32 and 64 GB configurations just like the iPad-

And that’s where the comparison can stop. You put these two devices side-by-side and it’s a fucking bloodbath.

Sony Move, Bitch, Get Out The Way

Brought home Killzone 3 for PS3 today, and it finally hit just how bad the PS3 “experience” is compared to every other goddamn gaming device out there.

New game for the Xbox 360? Insert disc, press a button, if there’s an update tell it OK, and play. (Okay, I usually install the game to the hard drive first, too.)

New game for iOS? Download, tap, and play.

New game for Wii? Insert disc, point at the game, and play.

Oh but no, here’s what it’s like with Killzone 3…
