4.0 out of 5 stars Great article
This is a great job by Verge. Informative and good insight into RIM. Almost. It also shows how hard it is to change corporate DNA.
There are bunch of people complaining about the cost of the article. At 99 cents I think its worth it. And I also think its OK to charge for this even though it appears for free on verge. Its not like they are showing ads in the article...

3.0 out of 5 stars Interesting, but short
Good article, but a bit short for when you consider you're paying for it. Especially when the content is available on The Verge, it makes it hard to justify a price tag. However, I enjoyed reading Jesse Hicks' take on the history of RIM. I recommend reading on The Verge.

1.0 out of 5 stars Stupid, February 24, 2012
This review is from: Research, no motion: How the BlackBerry CEOs lost an empire (Kindle Edition)
The article isn't even that long, you can get it for free and copy the text and you would get the same results. Utterly stupid charging for this and having less than the online article.

3.0 out of 5 stars Decent attempt at documenting RIM's failings. Disgusted with the pricing. Has AOL bought theverge already?, February 23, 2012
This review is from: Research, no motion: How the BlackBerry CEOs lost an empire (Kindle Edition)
$2.99 for this?! A post from TheVerge.com?? You'd think that AOL had taken over from the looks of things. Didn't know you were going to start charging for stuff (at least this soon after inception). Besides my gripes with what is essentially a blog post, the article is average, and definitely not worth the money. A lot of blogs recently have got book deals and done pretty well (Signal Vs. Noise --37 signals and others) and the guys at TheVerge seem to be trying --albeit desperately-- for the same. On the positive side, I sincerely believe you will hear and read a lot more from Jesse Hicks in the future. Keep it up Jesse and shame on you Verge. Just Instapaper the post off their site.
