R.I.P., R.I.M.

Mr. Balsillie’s contention is that apps aren’t as necessary as Steven P. Jobs, Apple’s chief executive, leads the world to believe through his marketing of the Apple App Store. Nor does Mr. Balsillie agree with Apple’s requirement that developers use proprietary tools for building apps for the iPhone and iPad.

Unsaid is the fear that Apple will make R.I.M., which is far less app-happy, obsolete or that it will push the industry in a direction that is to R.I.M’s disadvantage.
