This is some kind of very different article, as it discusses very new concept of the passed year. Generally I am used to reading the old news and developments or disasters, but this discusses about the mistakes done in the professional field.

if they continue their downfall like this then RIM will be all over the new during the quarterly report time during 2012.

I agree to what is said about the to-do list for the smart grid architects. Various tech companies around have taken up the job and are collaborating towards making the grid truly SMART. Here is an example: http://energy.slscorp.com

I agree; there's shooting yourself in the foot and there's shooting yourself in the head. These are different.

I think Nicolas want to say that, many people think "Put some kind of computer chip into the electric meter, then presto! Now we have smart grid!" At least here in Japan, Electricity companies are busy pouring government-funded money to upgrade the power meter, not exactly knowing what should they achieve after all - that is blunder, I think (well, I admit we get business share from that ;-)

Our electronics coverage includes aerospace. The fact that we also cover Amazon's business also makes it relevant.

RIM wins in my opinion, as blunderbust of the year.

Agree, HP definitely earned the distinction of #1 worst blunder of the year. I like your reality TV show analogy. What should this one be called? How about "Tech Company Rehab", which could either compete with or draw support from "Celebrity Rehab", LOL!

Cisco, AMD and HP are three companies that are not usually in the "penalty box" because of bad leadership and execution. (Okay, maybe AMD is infamous among these three but AMD has style when they screw up) HP, absolutely deserving the #1 spot, has become a "reality TV show" for our industry (CEO firing, sex scandals, product misfires, crazy mergers, board leaks and random stupid executive statements). I can't wait to see what happens in 2012.

It doesn't seem all that long ago when I was a bright-eyed, bushy-tailed young engineer. Now I feel like an old fool, but where are we going to find one at this time of the day (LOL)?
