    "grim Q1 performance"


     


    Backwards is classed as a type of performance now?

    Nice use of the word 'schadenfreude' from a guy that does nothing but the same towards Apple.

    Actually.. RIMM indeed did laugh at Apple back in 2007.  In fact, they absolutely did not believe that Apple had created such a device.  The word was that they were 'incredulous' that such a device existed.  They never considered Apple or Google any real threat until 2010, where it was too little, too late.

    So does RIM.

    Yeah that is what I had read about their reaction.  They saw Steve's keynote and proclaimed the iPhone impossible to do without suffering a two hour battery life.  Then when it came out they bought one and opened it up.  They were shocked to see the giant battery and the astonishing degree of miniaturization that had been achieved with the components.  Again they were stunned and realized they had absolutely no response to the Apple product.

    The Rim team saw magic that day.

    yup, RIM is down to its last desperate Hail Mary play - BB 10. it needs a touchdown just to stay in the game.


     


    yeah, FB would be smart to buy 'em up. but i think Zuckerberg thinks he's the next SJ. or at least BG.

    Apparently you don't know the meaning of the word schadenfreude, apple isn't in dire straights, they are not in any misfortune (on the contrary) so I can't be having schadenfreude about them. It's not schadenfreude when you are critical of the new apple tv interface. Nice try though, and as always it's a pleasure to see you are always about three steps behind me waiting to jump on what I say.

    It was with great amusement to see that, ironically, you yourself don't seem to know the definition 'schadenfreude'.


     


    Can myself, and the other forum members of AppeInsider, request that all your future posts be checked by your mummy in the future, in order to avoid any time-wasting drivel?


     


    Is that something that we may be able to arrange?


     


    Here's the definition:


     


    "pleasure derived from the misfortunes of others"


     


    You'll notice that nowhere in that definition does it mention the level of misfortune required. Large or small: any pleasure taken in misfortune is classed as schadenfreude.


     


    Ironically, I'm feeling some schadenfreude myself now towards you, but then I never claimed not to, and If you think I'm waiting behind you ready to jump then I think you've seriously over-estimated your importance to me, but I can understand how that would be important to you. ;-)

    oh, so you think apple's misfortune is their new atv interface then? Is it such a miserable failure? You sure can talk trash, but logic isn't your strong point. Does it really matter? I wouldn't think so, how hard is it to clean peoples' pools without falling in?

    Hate to bust your bubble, kiddo, but neither myself nor anybody else in this thread said anything about the Apple TV interface.


     


    I believe you may be suffering from multi-thread confusion syndrome.


     


    Please tell your mum, to tell you, that we'd all like you to move slowly away from the input device, take three steps backward, and place your hands on the top of your head.


     


    Pool cleaner?


     


    Get with the program.


     


    According to Samsung, we're all baristas here.

    I'm sure Thorston is well-compensated. Like those Umbrella corp guys in Resident Evil who put on full biohazard gear and have to go in and kill all the zombies and get rid of all the evidence. That's Mr. Heins.

    Good analogy. I was going with "Betting The Farm"... In this case, with not much rain forecast. It could be ugly.
