But look at Oracle, SAP, and Microsoft. They have continuing streams of revenue from enterprise accounts.
I think people are being cautious right now. They want to know how the election is going to go. They know if Obama wins, things will go in the toilet. If Conservatives win, things will get better but at what speed? If Obama is run out of office, then it will be time for people to come together and make this country into what it once was. It’s up to the people, not government.
Is it losing money or profits down ?
I challenge that RIM was ever a great company. I worked for a company that worked with them in the late 90s, they stunk. They got their position in the smartphone market mostly by not having a lot of competition.
I’ve never forgiven EA Sports for abandoning the PC market. As I was winding down from being a gamer Madden and NHL were the games that kept me playing, then they left the PC. I understand that market had gotten small, but it still bugs me.
Sony isn’t a surprise, I always thought HDDVD was going to beat BluRay just because Sony has such a long history of screwing up clear market advantages. So listing them as losing in spite of winning is pretty much par for their course.
We always knew eventually the so-so tech behind the Wii was going to cost it market.
Oh, Maybe THAT IS WHY! E.A. Is a bunch of Pandering Morons who screw up great gaming franchise for early release dates and building up the hype!!!!!
Glad to see Barnes & Noble on the list. I genuinely hate the Jane Lynch commercials for the Nook and the customers and staff at our local B & N unit are self righteous leftist pompous snobs. They try and hide conservative titles in obscure places and when you ask for one, they roll their eyes or make some obnoxious remark.
Eight FORMERLY great tech brands that may be headed for bankruptcy.
Shame to see Sony on this list. I’ve been a long time fan of Sony products, particularly their televisions. Problem is, they’re expensive and these days you can find the same features on other labels for a lot less money. I still recommend a PS3 to each and every person who asks what blu-ray player they should buy. I have two of them and I’m not even a gamer. Just a fantastic machine.
As an avid PC gamer I say GO TO HELL EA AND TAKE ACTIVISION WITH YOU!
I’m not crying any tears over EA let me tell you. They, along with Activision, screw up everything they touch.
Torchlight II anyone?
Everybody is pinching pennies, stealing pennies and even melting pennies.
What was a social requirement of the latest fads like the newest smartphone and or other status toys such as laptops are not being bought so fast or as often, nobody has the “disposable income”.
