BOLD Was Never Delayed! Boy Genius Wrong! Take 2
 
Disclaimer: Previous thread got out of hand, I let a certain individual get me mad, ran my mouth with language. Even though he made himself look silly, I took the bait. I will not do that again.

Cellphones: RIM Denies Blackberry Bold Delays, But It's Still Hitting in August

That is from RIM's mouth. Looks like this site and others need to quit relying on Boy Genius for "reliable" news. No delays, never were any delays and August is the planned release date.

EDIT: Go to Betanews in that link and you get this quote:

"But in speaking with BetaNews last night, Van Drunen denied any knowledge of overheating problems. "I don't know where that's coming from at all, but it's probably from somewhere in the blogosphere," according to Van Drunen."

For the comment on "Why bash BGR and listen to these blogs?", well to me Gizmodo and Betanews are news sites, and even if you consider them blogs, they actually got news from RIM, not just "from a source". To me in my opinion, if you can't quote your source, it is not news, but rumor. Just my opinion.

Good grief. So they close one thread and you immediately open a new one on the same topic?

You are just itching for a break from BBF aren't ya?

sandmanfvr 06-26-2008 02:09 PM

Well this is news, the other topic was ruined, and yes I helped ruin it, but still this is BIG NEWS. There was no delay in the BOLD and it is coming in August. Who cares who locked a thread, we got tangible news on the BOLD!

Dawg 06-26-2008 02:09 PM

Geeze somepeople never learn

sandmanfvr 06-26-2008 02:10 PM

I think I see a pattern on this board. *sigh*

CO_BBTechie 06-26-2008 02:10 PM

This is not big news. The end result is the same. No Bold until August... we get it

The thread is there, it wasn't deleted. Read my post at the end. This thread, this second one, is completely pointless. You posted what you had to and that's what you did. Everyone can read it. Time to move on.

sandmanfvr 06-26-2008 02:13 PM

Maybe when I get 1000's of post, I will be taken seriously. Just wanted to post some good news on the BOLD. God in heaven, didn't think it would cause a stir.

Mods please lock this one to. *shakes head and walks away*

CO_BBTechie 06-26-2008 02:16 PM

When you learn proper 'Netiquette, you will be taken seriously.

Its nothing to do with being taken seriously. Your original post is still there, you passed on your information. The discussion you started got out of hand, life goes on.

Its not what you say, its how you say it. And to the point of the post, people read BGR, Engadget and other blogs for rumor as well as confirmed news. They aren't always right, but enjoyable never the less.

I will say that as usual, penguin3107, gives his negative attitude. Which for some reason is ok except when others do it.

jsconyers 06-26-2008 02:30 PM

Fricken work! Always gets in the way of the excitement. Where is the popcorn?

JSanders 06-26-2008 02:30 PM

Back on the OP topic.

This thread is not about attitudes.

Sarcasm is one thing, language is something different. The only thing that anyone was singled out for was language.

lraed74 06-26-2008 02:36 PM

I'm not defeding sandmanfvr, but you can easily notice that he is a newbie (as far as I know) with 32 posts as of right now. penguin3107's first comment was not nice, if new comers are treated as such, why should they stick around?

sorry, back to topic

Bold...August :)

Dawg 06-26-2008 02:41 PM

The problem with forums is you cant read body language so you dont know whether or not someone is kidding being sarcastic or just plain rude.

I took the post by the OP in the first thread as a slap in the face to this forum and personally. He comes in saying we take BGR serious but then in the same post quotes other blogs as the gospel.
