BlackBerry-Fairfax Takeover Dies; Thorsten Heins Out

Thorsten Heins wasn’t able to sell and messed up the critical BlackBerry 10 launch, but don’t worry about his retirement — like most ousted executives, Heins has a cushy escape package. As for the company, well, it will struggle on. Hopefully they can get someone in charge who is excited about the potential of building back up a company which is down and out for the count.

Or, you know, sending it to the farm.
