Forgive me if I don’t provide balloons and a cake – maybe these two could chuck me a $20. But hey, congrats are deserved, I guess, to Research In Motion’s fearless leaders Mike Lazaridis and Jim Balsilie. The two have just joined the world of the wealthy as part of the Forbes Billionaire Ranking for 2007. With Bill Gates topping the list for the 13th straight year, our boys have a ways to go with Lazaridis at no. 583 $1.7-billion US and ol’ Jimmy at and no. 618 with $1.6-billion.
Get that 8300 in my hands sooner boys, and I’ll help you catch up to Gates. I’m sure I’m not the only one who’s on board with that.
