Leena Rao reporting on Gist that RIM just purchased:

Gist, which raised $10.8 million in funding, launched in 2008 as a “professional” communications manager, aimed at satisfying the filtering needs of a business user. Like the web service, the app organizes your streams according to your email contacts so it’s a useful way of following your colleagues, friends and professional contacts.

Sounds very boring — which is the reason I think that RIM is struggling to compete with iOS in the enterprise. I know they still have a strong hold on the market, but more and more CEOs and others in the enterprise are preferring to use iPhones — Gist does not sound like a great iPhone type app.
