Nice!

Um... going through the motions at www.blackberry.com, I don't see it. I only see links to PocketMac. Odd...

Its also odd that the facebook post has gone too.
Perhaps someone at the Blackberry FB page shouldn't have posted it!
It had only been posted for about 10 minutes when I found it.
Had quite a few "so and so likes this post"
And 2 minutes after posting this thread, its removed.

Yep... looks like someone jumped the gun a bit. Maybe they'll get it together later today? Fingers crossed...

^^ Betas are notorious for that sort of outcome.

I warned folks about avoiding the beta that's floating around, but every day that goes by without the Mac Desktop Manager released tempts me to give it a try. I'm hanging tough for now, but if I show up here whining about it, you know the pressure got to me.

Right there with you Rambo. The betas are always tempting, DM for Mac more so than others. I will hold ... for now.

I hear you... but this is not Beta, version says 1.0.0 build 75

As I stated on other thread, I have it working now with no problems whatsoever on two different configurations...

tempting, tempting..

And you KNOW that by "September" RIM actually meant mid-November

We're not talking about the same thing. You are using "Pocket Mac", which is a piece of crap and we all gave up on it long time ago.

We're discussing here Blackberry Desktop Manager for Mac, which is supposed to be officially released this month but isn't yet. I am giving examples of "leaked" version which is available on certain sites for download

Don't blame me if you don't have the guts to try version 1.0.0.

Wait, letme plug my BOLD to my MacBookPro, I just added some contacts in Entourage, so I might as well sync while I'm talking to you ( )

Ah, well, done already.

You're such a pioneer, aren't you? A rebel, perhaps. Do you also drink milk passed the expiration date? Or maybe run with scissors?

Thanks for the laugh Ian.

And more:

Installation automatically adds new network device called "BlackBerry-yourpinnumber". I guess it is for tethering internet, but I can't get it to work. it is by default CDMA, but even when switching it to GSM, all it does is dial #777 on my Bold. Sure few calls to my telco would sort this out, but I don't really have a need for it.

Backup works well also, with applications coming back in the wrong places and having to re-authorize them, but that's what's restoring from the backup on the PC is like too, right?

But for unofficial installing of OS updates, we will still be needing PCs around, won't we. I don't see telecoms offering downloadable .app versions.

To "Wild Hog" - no sour milk or scissors for me please, although sometimes when I install beta versions and I get nervous, I stick my hands under my arms, and then I smell my fingers - like that.

Got it... thanks.
