PwC Helping Blackberry Stay as Comfortable as Possible

Cutting 40% of your workforce is certainly a sign that the end is near and now this report from Bloomberg has PwC on the scene to guide the company into the afterlife: 
BlackBerry Ltd. (BB), the struggling Canadian smartphone maker, has hired accounting firm PricewaterhouseCoopers LLP to evaluate the company for potential buyers, according to two people with knowledge of the move. A team of accountants and lawyers from the New York-based firm have been working in BlackBerry’s home town of Waterloo, Ontario, since August, said the people, who declined to be identified because the contract hasn’t been made public. 
Sorry in advance for your loss, Greg and all the other Blackberry fans.
