RIM CEO calls a halt to BBC Click interview
Touchy, touchy! Just when Kipp was giving the UAE’s TRA a tough time for its teleco dealings, it turns out those at RIM aren’t as cool-headed either.

When BBC’s Rory Cellan-Jones interviewed Mike Lazaridis, the co-chief executive of Research In Motion (RIM), he asked a question for BBC Click about RIM’s problems in India and the Middle East, where governments want to gain greater access to the tight security system used for Blackberry’s business users.
Lazaridis seemed to have a problem with the words “security” and “problem” and responded by saying the question was unfair, and that the interview was over. A more complete cut of the interview will be broadcast on the television edition of BBC Click later in April.
