Best Buy CEO Resigns And The Company Is Losing Money By The Millisecond, So They Make Returns More Difficult

| April 11, 2012 | Reply

I am pretty sure Best Buy hasn’t been paying much attention to the guys over at RIM lately. Best Buy’s profits are half of what they were two years ago. That’s a major loss considering this is supposed to be the time when the economy is recovering. RIM(Blackberry) went through the same kind of dramatic […]

I am pretty sure that Super Bowl commercial I saw a few years back for Monster.com that depicted a bunch of monkeys running the company was fashioned after two companies: RIM and Verizon. While RIM has all but killed the Blackberry name, Verizon keeps pressing on. But they do things like this once in a […]
