• Is RIM Purchasing Gist?


    Industry sources say that RIM is possibly acquiring the Seattle based start up company Gist.

    For those that are not familiar with Gist, it creates profiles of those in your business network, much like rivals Rapportive and eTacts by using publicly available information from sources such as Rapleaf, a San Francisco-company that has been receiving close scrutiny for its data collection techniques. This profile data is made available anytime someone emails you.

    RIM has been on a buying frenzy lately, acquiring Dash in 2009, Torch Mobile and The Astonishing Tribe earlier this month.

    What do your think? Are you concerned about apps that collect profile data on you and your contacts? Would you like to see your contact list look more like FaceBook? Let us know what you think in our forums.
