RIMM Gets Burned ... Again

Smartphones are driving growth in the technology industry, but Research In Motion is on the losing side of the equation as competitors' dominant ecosystems continue to lock them out of valuable market share.

The latest blow: Immigration and Customs Enforcement issued a report explaining its decision to ditch RIMM, citing the company's dwindling market share and the effect it has on third-party vendors.
