DivProg ,

Very informative!

You need this podcast if you are interested in the phone industry, not only Blackberry but all phones in general. I learnt quite a lot from listen to Rene Ritchie and the others.

Great podcast

Need Craig Back

This group needs to bring Craig back to the podcast. He's the only analyst in the group with thoughts and suggestions that reflect worried Blackberry users' and especially shareholders' concerns. The others don't seem to have a clue about Blackberry's troubled journey. If Craig is no longer in the show, then many of us will need to drop this podcast. We're tired of listening to fanboys that have no clue the Titanic Blackberry is sinking!
