The Macalope on possible treatments for RIM:
It’s quite possible their condition is terminal.
RIM really does align well with a person who knew they could get ill if they just stood still, possibly terminally ill, but decided to ignore that fact until it got to the point when they could no longer ignore it — because they are now terminally ill. I still think you can feel bad when it happens to someone, but it’s a different kind of feeling bad.
RIM didn’t get to where it is today because the market shifted — no RIM is where they are today because they ignored the fact that the market shifted. Big difference.
