You have to love how certain parts of the media jump on even the most obvious news. RIM announced at their last shareholders call that they are focused on reducing costs by $1 billion. Now Bloomberg is reporting that RIM is planning on selling one of their corporate jets as part of that effort. It seems like this is also a symbolic move on some part but this is what RIM had to say:
“We’re looking at options with both our aircraft costs and finding ways to reduce our travel while still making sure we keep in close contact with our partners around the world. It’s all part of the effort to find ways to reduce costs and drive efficiencies that [CEO] Thorsten Heins has talked about.” ~RIM
So far todays shareholders meeting has been relatively tame and boring with some downright idiotic questions but more on that later. It would be funny if this story is the biggest news coming out today.
