    Jean-Louis Gassée, a venture capitalist in Silicon Valley who once oversaw Apple's global products division and research and development. But he questioned whether the strong personalities leading the two companies could work together.



    Â?I want to see the two CEOs of RIM and [Apple CEO Steve] Jobs working together,Â? he said. Â?The thought of this ménage Ã* trois is absolutely hilarious.Â?







    Nuff said.

    If Apple licensed RIM's underlying technology it would be entertaining. The new iPhone would be Blackberry Enterprise Server compatible. The user interface would need to be completely redone of course...
