Business Insider: Ironfire Capital manager Eric Jackson says that smartphone manufacturer Research in Motion (RIM) will either be bought out or go out of business by the first quarter of 2013. “It’s a bad software company,” he said. “Bad cofounders, and they’re going to drive this company straight into the ground.”
