Hey Bad Bold Boy,

Try actually reading the first few posts in this thread... it WAS up shortly, and removed.

And just FYI, we don't call each other idiots around here and we use grown-up language. If your balls are blue, perhaps your sphincter is wound a little too tight.

You have got to be kidding me. Seriously. I mean it. You have got to be kidding.

Please tell me you're kidding, because if you're not, you really, really need to pay close attention to this specific part of your post:

DAMMIT check yourself before you post something stupid

Oh, and you also need to pay close attention to this part as well:

Idiot

Hell of a second post though!

Did we ever get a concrete explanation for why the software was pulled? I've still not heard anything definitive from my (limited) contacts. And nothing better than "coming soon" as far as when we can expect this little ray of sunshine in the vast darkness that is our lives.

No idea, but the girlfriend and I got hit with a double-whammy. I had told her that I would update the OS on her Bold when DM for Mac was released, and so it gets released, retracted, and the OS gets pulled. *sigh*

What was the first post? "How do I unlock my 8330?"

Come on - read the post first. PEBKAB followed up with a dash of MFTP.

If I had to guess it's the problems with Snow Leopard that many people are reporting. I have to admit I still hold my breath for a while every time I plug BOLD and it auto-syncs. You know, expecting some error message or something weird. My experience with new DM has been too good to be true, after all these years of pocket Mac, Missing Sync, Fusion...

But now I am holding on SL upgrade until RIM goes official.

I had to uninstall DTM because it would not sync calendars properly for me, but for those who still have it can someone try to run the updater? I know we had build 75 and someone testing it told me that it was now up to build 83 or something. I'm wondering if the "check for updates" will bring the latest version, which supposedly is solid. If so I may reinstall and update.

At the same time, maybe my memory is failing and there isn't an update option at all, but I seem to remember one in preferences or under one of the menus. If I'm wrong I'm sorry.

I tried it, says no new updates are available. Still build 75.

I heard the final version is being packaged with the Skype for Blackberry app for concurrent release.

Well that's the 25th of September been and almost over. Anyone want to guess another date?

RIM has no respect for their customers, especially mac users

and then they wonder about their falling sales? Have a look at today's ZDnet news article about their recent performance that said:

Quote:
BlackBerry maker Research In Motion on Thursday said it sold fewer BlackBerry phones than analysts had expected and that the company's quarterly earnings were hurt by a legal settlement.

Although RIM still saw strong sales of BlackBerry devices, the news sent the company's stock price tumbling in after-market trading.
see news.zdnet.co.uk/itmanagement/0,1000000308,39773916,00.htm

Whilst the legal settlement must have hurt, the fall from predicted sales in a market where others are seeing more sales than predicted says something more. Funny that the main competition of iPhone and Android fully support Mac out-of-the-box isn't it?

Will RIM ever get it? The world is not just the USA and desktops aren't only Microsoft.

Yes, those 8% of the population buying Macs are causing RIM's stock to fall. The global economy has nothing to do with it.

I am constantly amazed at the power of the Apple Marketing Machine. 8% becomes a majority.

I wonder how Apple's stock is doing? Hmmm... Mac users aren't solely responsible for RIM's stock, but it is reflective of RIM's overall modis.

Oh, and 8% is still hundreds of millions of machines. I'm always amazed at the Microsoft math in assuming Mac's are irrelevant as a customer base for software and other developers.

Regarding the date change, here is the latest. How irritating is this?
