The Macalope:

Because, when it comes to the mobile business, RIM is kinda like HP—just without any shred of self-awareness. While HP’s covering its face and crying “Uncle!”, RIM’s doubling down like a gambling addict. Now the company is apparently trying to build its own music service.

RIM and HP were very much in the same position — and while I may make fun of RIM constantly — at least RIM didn’t quit when the going got tough (for better or worse).
