BlackBerry -- the "sick man of mobile" -- is poised for better times. That was the sentiment expressed by CEO John Chen in an internal memo distributed to BlackBerry employees last week. BlackBerry has completed its restructuring and the workforce reductions that started three years ago have been completed, Chen reportedly wrote in the memo. Better yet, barring any unexpected downturns in the market, BlackBerry would be adding workers in several areas, including product development, sales and customer service.

I have my doubts that RIM can every recover in the mobile phone market. They would be the first.
First and foremost they would have to compete with the two biggies Android and iPhones and then somehow subdue a company like Microsoft and its Windows phones from gaining small percentages in market share. Blackberry is certainly not ripe for growth. Its position itself in a very precarious position and ripe growth in my opinion would be setting the bar unreasonably high with a company that almost became another Palm.

How will the pandemic influence your holiday shopping habits this year?
I will shop online exclusively, for my own safety and to help limit the spread of the coronavirus.
I will do some shopping online, and some in-person because I want to support merchants in my area.
I will shop online definitely, and I will consider local retailers -- but only if they provide curbside service.
I will only shop in-person because the risks associated with e-commerce outweigh my chance of catching COVID-19.
I will not do any holiday shopping this year due to circumstances related to the pandemic.
