BlackBerry News: RIM's New CEO

Yahoo's Headline:

RIM and Blackberry on the edge under new CEO

Takeover talk swirled as investors and analysts ponder whether new Chief Executive Thorsten Heins had been appointed to lead a turnaround of the struggling phonemaker.

TORONTO/LONDON (Reuters) - The new leader at Research In Motion on Monday dismissed talk of drastic change at the BlackBerry maker, a declaration seized on by impatient investors who say Thorsten Heins has only 12 to 18 months to turn RIM around.

Takeover talk, swirling around RIM for months, picked up steam as Heins took the helm at a once-dominant smartphone company that now struggles to compete. But RIM's shares tumbled more than 8 percent as investors wondered whether Heins could reverse RIM's decline.

As a BlackBerry user, my hope is for the best of RIM with its newly appointed CEO. I think now is the  time for RIM/BlackBerry to give more focus on innovation. Make better Playbook tablets and bestest Smart Phones. Lol!

Apple had its peak, now it should be RIM's turn. But first, they have to topple South Korea's Samsung who's currently leading in market sales worldwide.

To Thorstein Heins, make BlackBerry lead the market.

Food: Shawarma To The World

I took this BB pic in Al Satwa Road, Dubai.. I bought two pieces for me and my wife before heading straight home from work. I just love to eat one, which for me, best eaten while its hot and surely it can satisfy your hunger for just 4 Dirhams. This is good for those who are always on the go.

I have tried shawarma in the Philippines but its not as good as what I have tasted here in Dubai. I have been eating delicious shawarma for almost 5 years now. Lol!

It is usually made of chicken, beef or mutton meat (goat) alternately stacked on a stick, cooked and grilled in a vertical rotating spit like the one above. Mixed with sliced cabbage or lettuce, potato fries and a white sauce, it will be filled into a small round pocket Arabic bread called "pita" "khubz" (read as kubos) and sided with pickled vegetables.

Shawarma is one of the Middle Eastern foods that gained worldwide popularity.

Did you know: that the Arabic word shawarma comes from the Turkish word çevirme [tʃeviɾˈme] 'turning', and has its origins in Anatolia? And tha it is similar to the dish called döner kebab 'turning kebab' in Turkish, and the Greek gyros 'turned', formerly called ντονέρ /doˈner/? Source:
