Samsung's drop over 2014 has been well documented, but it is now in black and white and it does not make for pretty reading.

By Luke Jones on Friday January 23, 2015

In the space of a week, the story that Samsung could buy Blackberry in a $7.5 billion deal has turned into a mini saga. Reuters first reported the news last week, claiming to have seen documental evidence, but Blackberry denied the story, while Samsung said they would work with Blackberry but not buy the company.

Samsung to Decline Further Through 2015
By Luke Jones on Friday January 23, 2015

While Samsung's slide has not reached crisis point in terms of market share and sales, it is certainly at crisis point within the company. Insiders know this is more than a slump, it is a trending slide that needs to be dealt with now or it will never stop.
