Angry Blackberry & Windows Calendar

Please Login to Remove!

Ok. So I've installed the latest Blackberry Desktop Manager, and I've sync'd Google Cal with Windows Cal. Now, just how the hell do I have my Blackberry sync with Windows Cal? There are a good few options for Calendar using the BDM....funnily enough none of those options are the actual Calendar included with Windows.

I'm on Windows Vista, and it's a Blackberry 8310.

Thanks!

At this point Intellisync does not have a connector for the Vista Calendar.

Yes, I am sure to blame RIM and Intellisync for this one.

Vista is amazing. The s***y support that companies like RIM show however, is quite horrific.

Don't be so quick to jump on the 'Vista is s*t' bandwagon without first thinking about the fact it's not the fault of MS, but that of pathetic, excuse filled software vendors.

I wasn't having a go. I was just pointing out that rubbish support from other vendors doesn't make that the fault of the product.

There are lots of issues with Vista and a lot of the blame has to go to Microsoft. Vendors did a TERRIBLE job with drivers, but Microsoft, as usual, kept critical information to themselves. I run Vista. And I am the one making the decision that we will not roll in out internally until 2009. Microsoft did not disagree with our plan. Lots and lots of regressions testing to be done.

It's not all the crappy vendors fault - a lot of the blame lies with Microsoft.

I agree. While some of it is the vendors, a lot of it is Microsoft. I ran vista on my computer for about 6 months, and rolled back to XP after I got fed up with it being so slow (btw, its dual core, w/2 gigs of ram, so it's decent). The only thing I enjoyed was the interface, but it was not enough to make me stick with Vista. As for Windows Calendar, it's brand new in Vista (Windows did not have one since Windows 3.1), and you need to give the vendors time to figure out how to access the new features, and work with it without having big issues. Plus, I bet windows' new paranoia settings are not helping with that, as it denies access to a lot of things.

If you want a calendar that works, use a real one such as Outlook.

I have two laptops; one company standard - XP; Office 2003 and one with Vista and Office 2007. No problems with the XP one. But Vista is very slow to load (in particular). Had a laugh about it with the Microsoft engineers last week. They agreed. Slow to load.
