On today's show, RIM responds -- if you can call it that -- to an open letter purportedly from a senior executive calling out the company on all its woes. RIM's response? We're fine. Well, we're fine, but we will also agree to form a task force to investigate whether we need a better CEO and management structure. Ya think? Plus, the craziest Computer Love ever.

Hi Buzz Crew,
You missed the obvious connection about our Patent system. It’s a “”finger gesture”".
Love the show,
Mother-in-law sends worst email ever to bride: forgivable?
Hey Buzz Crew,
OK, so I have almost sent this email several times. I don’t want to be the bad girlfriend here, but I don’t think I can let this one go anymore. My boyfriend is HORRIBLE with internet security. Every few weeks I come home to full screen “”You need to buy our virus scan software”" style malware on our shared computer. This is our only desktop and I have a habit of going to check my utility and bank statements on it YIKES! I am the computer savy half and I know this fact embarrasses him, so how do I deal with this?
Wouldn’t you know it, the little guy just couldn’t wait to see this great world with his own two eyes.
He ended up coming a bit early, leaving me scrambling to make my own little mix with my wife’s water already broken. But all worked out well – we started the trip to the hospital with some good ol’ “”Push It”", moved to gentle songs like Frou Frou “”Breath In”" to keep the mood calm, and mixed in spicier numbers like “”You and me and the Bottle Makes 3 tonight”" to keep those muscles working.
But the greatest moment was turning some heads at the hospital entrance with Bon Jovi blaring – that’s right, the Pièce de résistance, “”Born to be my Baby”"
A day and a half later, my wife, who weighed 105 pounds (before labor) gave birth to a very happy 9 pound 1 once baby. Alexander Danger (Danger is his… middle name he says in his terrible Austin Powers impersonation) can’t wait to hear his Aunt Molly and Uncle Brian without mom’s belly in the way.
Good luck all,
Mike from New Hampshire
