PlayBook being recalled

by Thomas Brady

It just keeps getting worse. One of the sadder paragraphs I’ve read in tech journalism in recent history:

RIM has decided to recall about a thousand of its PlayBook tablets thanks to a buggy operating system, the company has confirmed. The confirmation came after RIM had begun notifying its distribution partners about the faulty units, with the company noting that the majority of the recalled devices are still in distribution channels—not in customers’ hands.

So at least some PlayBooks are literally DOA. I called it.
