    It seems that one mystery is solved, but leaves another plot hole dangling. After being practically caught red-handed by internet cyber-sleuths, RIM has admitted to starting the anti-Apple "Wake Up" flash-mob/protestors ad campaign.

    Now we know who was behind the mystery campaign, but we still have no idea why, or in what direction RIM plans to take things. They plan on sharing their plans in about a week, so we won't have to wait long to find out. The question remains... does anyone really care? Here is the quote of their confession:

    On a separate note, it's funny that Samsung ended up getting a ton of free press from this ad campaign because everyone jumped to the conclusion that it was their handiwork. Lucky Sammy... :)

    Taking a stand how? That was pathetic and embarrassing. Let people buy whatever they want, why would you show up at stores telling people to basically stop being dumb.

    I don't like Apple but I find RIM even more pathetic.

    Conspiracy theory. Samsung organized the event and payed RIM to plant evidence against itself and take the fall. :p

    Which leads back to Apple, then to the new world order, and followed by the Mayan 2012 end of the world prophecy!
