Even a company that is dwindling away into nothingness like Palm that is known to build some of the buggiest PDA’s known to man can get a good cheap shot in when you can’t keep your service up for more than a few months at a time.
Sure, you’ve got to reboot your Windows Mobile running Treo once or twice a day, however, when it’s up, you can pretty much send and receive email without worry.
I couldn’t resist creating my own version:
Especially considering there’s good old reliable windows at BOTH ends of that communications line. And we all know that Exchange is about as reliable as a chocolate fireguard. Covered in Petrol. In a bakers oven. During the great fire of London.
And windows mobile + Exchange ? Secure? I dont think so..
Still, you can see why they’re doing this. Top selling business smartphone is the crackberry. Followed by iPhone. Then MS. Then Palm.
Pretty much agreed. Not to mention how good MS is on the Palm when your checking email, a phone call comes in, and the whole damn thing locks up and the call goes bye-bye.
I’d rather take my lumps with BB and the occasional downtime that lose that all important phone call because my system crashed.
Of course BB is better than Palm, any day of the week, no matter what.
However, what is sad is that RIM put themselves in a position where even a sad dog like Palm can get in a good shot.
You are so right in your statement “Sure, you’ve got to reboot your Windows Mobile running Treo once or twice a day, however, when it’s up, you can pretty much send and receive email without worry.”
Thought, you also bring up a good thing, one can argue that when it comes right down to it other devices like windoz mobile Palm’s or the various other WM players, while not as well designed in most of our opinions get the job done and don’t have the KNOWN weakness of being a slave to a single NOC. RIM’s self made single choke point, a proprietary single NOC is not acceptable.
Fanboys will continue to piss, moan and argue but those in the know, have seen the reality. Because of RIM’s repetitive system outages it’s clear that our BB’s are not the mission critical devices which some think they are.
Plain and simple all other devices that don’t depend on a systems like RIM’s proprietary, single choke point, single NOC, design are not paper weights when the network goes down. Palm’s statement is TOO TRUE. Palm is just one of the other smartphone manufactures which will benefit from RIM’s repetitive outages.
If hellidiot had a clue, then why would Palm be on the brink of extinction? Why is RIM continuing to grow?
That’s because people and companies can deal with the occasional issue. Unreal…
bluehorseshoe with your constant need to ego post, defend RIM, and take personal shots at others who don’t follow your flawed thought process you continue to show yourself the FOOL, while also continuing to show RIM’s repetitive system outages are not acceptable as are your desperate excuses for RIM’s system failures.
Your desperate need to be part of something, riding RIM’s coat tales, and posting like a big shot are crumpling all around you like RIM’s proprietary, single choke point, single NOC.
There is NO excuse for RIM’s repetitive system failures, like there is NO excuse for the ignorant fanboy bluehorseshoe and his posts.
Proprietary single NOC? Just goes to show you have no clue to what you’re talking about. No such thing you bozo.
Really bluehorseshoe? You better learn to do yourself a favor and LEARN before ego posting FUD and constantly make yourself the FOOL.
Rim’s BB system is proprietary, and rely’s on RIM’s single NOC.
RIM: BlackBerry outage caused by upgrade
Second major service disruption in less than a year
“E-mail sent to and from BlackBerry phones in North America all goes through a Network Operations Center. It appears the problem occurred there, when one of two Internet addresses that relay e-mail from corporate servers stopped responding”
“Any time you got a system that’s got a NOC, a Network Operations Center, you have the potential for a single point of failure,” said Jack Gold, with technology analyst firm J.Gold Associates in Northborough, Mass.
“What’s a bit surprising to me is that with all the work they’ve been doing over time … that they haven’t been able to have enough redundancy in the NOC so that there isn’t a single point of failure,” said Gold, who has done business with RIM.”
“Microsoft’s competing solution for mobile corporate e-mail doesn’t use an equivalent to the NOC. Instead, it sends e-mail directly from a corporate server to user’s handsets. That means widespread outages are unlikely, though the system can fail on the local level.”
OH the TRUTH is so much better than bluehorseshoe FUD.
Really? Tell me what’s proprietary about the NOC since you’re so well versed in IT? I’m eager to hear.
You don’t even know what a NOC is. Ever walk in one or manage one?
Sorry bluehorseshoe been there, done that when it comes to trying to correct your ignorance. Your going to have to learn all by yourself about RIM’s proprietary, single choke point, single NOC, which caused the latest system outage, and many of those outages before this one. Your too thick to learn your ego posts constantly show you as the FOOL here to everyone at RIMarkable.
You’ve been given plenty of links, plenty of the TRUTH about the situation to learn about RIM’s latest system failure. It doesn’t take many “well versed” IT to see RIM’s current proprietary, single choke point, single NOC is not mission critical, and is not good enough for mission critical data like it was thought to be. Perhaps to RIM it’s good enough for rude, crude, ignorant fanboys who make excuses for RIM’s failures, but RIM’s failures for the rest of us are unacceptable.
Way to go bluehorseshoe excuse RIM’s failures, and strive to be merely adequate, like you excuse verizon for crippling and their removing functions and features from it’s customers devices…… Behavior verizon expects from it’s ignorant, vealot’s.
TRUTH before bluehorseshoe FUD.
So in other words you don’t know.
That’s what I expected.
No bluehorseshoe “in other words” your again pointed out as a rude, crude, ignorant fanboy who uses RIMarkable as his personal toilet, while desperately grandstand posting to try and stroke your delicate ego. You want to learn about RIM and it’s latest system failure? You want to learn about RIM’s current proprietary, single choke point, single NOC? It’s for you to learn as posted before been there, done that when it comes to trying to correct your ignorance. No reason to be upset with others which know and post the TRUTH instead of bluehorseshoe FUD. Learning the TRUTH is good. Unlike what verizon tells you, a smart consumer is a good consumer. As a RIM customer you’d think you’d want to know about the TRUTH about RIM’s current proprietary, single choke point, single NOC, and why it’s not mission critical. But sadly instead bluehorseshoe shows ignorance desperately backed up by LAME personal posts.
Palm’s is 100% correct in it’s ad. Whats funny is most BB customers would miss the ad since RIM’s proprietary, single choke point, single NOC failed making everyones BB into a paper weight.
No excuses, NO FUD.
Personal toilet? Now who uses phrases like that unless they are mentally challenged?
BlackBerry outage: What went wrong?
Posted by Eric Benderoff at 1:50 p.m. (Updated at 4:10 p.m.)
If I use a tool everyday to get my job done and it often breaks without explanation, why would I keep using it?
“There are plenty of mobile messaging alternatives out there.
Lately, I’ve been sending and receiving e-mail on a device that doesn’t even have a phone attached to it, the iPod Touch. Granted, it only works when I’m in a Wi-Fi zone, but as those become more common—click here for Monday’s Starbucks post—that device is just one threat to Research In Motion’s (BlackBerry’s maker) market dominance.
Apple’s iPhone is another fine alternative, as are the 30-odd devices that use Windows Mobile software. In my tests with the iPhone and several phones running on Windows, I’ve always been able to access my e-mail.
And guess what’s coming later this year? A whole host of messaging-enabled phones that run on the Google-endorsed Android platform.
That’s a lot of alternatives if you’re a BlackBerry user frustrated by at least three major outages over the past three years.”
No excuses, NO FUD.
However, even without outages, information-technology managers should be looking for alternatives, said Avi Greengart, research director at Current Analysis.
“Any outage is a cause for concern, particularly if you’re an IT manager,” Greengart said. “Your job is to ensure service availability.
While many IT managers have some fallback options in place, the latest outage could spur more to find alternatives, he said, but added that handing employees two different devices could be impractical”
“BlackBerry e-mail traverses a complex infrastructure involving mobile operator networks, RIM’s network operations center and BlackBerry Enterprise Servers within companies that use the service. It pushes messages from enterprise e-mail systems, including Microsoft Exchange and IBM Lotus Notes, out to the popular BlackBerry devices.
The system is getting yet more complicated as RIM adds third-party services to appeal to consumers.”
“Some BlackBerry users have complained that service has been spotty lately, and no enterprise user likes to be too dependent on a single service provider. This outage could inspire IT managers to look for alternatives to RIM for wireless e-mail, and Microsoft is more than willing to chat with them.”
“I’m mad _ it’s enough already,” said a frustrated Stuart Gold, who said he gets 1,000 e-mails a day as director of field marketing for Web analytics company Omniture Inc. and can’t afford the downtime.
Gold, who worked most of Monday on a laptop while traveling, plans to ask his company to buy him a backup smart phone from a rival like Palm Inc., which makes the Treo, in case BlackBerry service goes on the fritz again.
“I don’t know what happened, I don’t care what happened. They need to save their excuses for someone who cares,” Gold said.
Service Outage Gives BlackBerry a Black Eye
“Enterprises that really need e-mail responses in less than eight hours to run their businesses should have a backup for the BlackBerry, Gartner analyst Ken Dulaney….. They should also set up an independent system to notify them whether an important contact has received or replied to an e-mail message, Dulaney said.”
Gartner’s Dulaney had harsh words for RIM, saying he had given the company a break after last year’s failure.
“This does not appear to be a mission-critical system with the highest service-level agreements, and therefore, to entrust … that a message will get to the end point is being a bit foolhardy,” Dulaney said. He advises enterprises that are worried about dependability to ask RIM for details of its backup system and make their own decisions.”
“BlackBerry Outage – You Say System Upgrade, I Say Achilles Heel…
Eric Everson, Founder MyMobiSafe.com
“Though RIM is continuing to investigate their issue, this outage stands as a beacon of vulnerability that stems from the centralized approach that RIM uses for the BlackBerry platform. As users (and hackers alike) have drawn from this instance, the central management approach of RIM puts BlackBerry users at an extreme risk.”
“As it stands today the centralized network architecture of RIM has become the Achilles heel of the brand. As even the Canadian Press highlights, “The concentration of RIM’s BlackBerry service at a single network operation centre in the Ontario city of Waterloo, through which traffic such as e-mails are routed, exacerbates such problems and leaves it open to more crashes.” In an era of affordable SONET broadband infrastructure and POP (Point of Presence) Mirrors one must begin to question the current network model that RIM employs. Though I applaud the BlackBerry platform for the range of third party content, this outage under the existing network design casts significant attention onto the brand with regards to mobile security.”
“As a word of recommendation however headlines like “RIMs co-CEO downplays BlackBerry Outage” stand to destroy the future merit of the brand. This outage is nothing to sweep under the rug as the technology savvy consumer (from the CIO to the entry level user) is already beginning to question the integrity of the BlackBerry service. As millions across the world conduct business via their BlackBerry (from Firefighters to Financial Analysts) now is no time to have the integrity of the service called into question. I say take the steps to correct the issues and use this opportunity to carry the brand forward. It may prove to be a critical mistake to dismiss this outage as a number of viable alternatives are competing for the RIM market share of the wireless industry.”
Alternative??? LOL…sure, let’s hope we can pull a wifi reception on I-95! LOL…you’re a moron. “Hold on sir, I need to find a Starbucks so I can pull down that email you just sent.” LOL…
Exchange is just as reliable as anything else out there…nothing. As for Android, it’s a platform, not a solution you idiot (unless you’d like to have Gmail as your company domain address…real professional).
You’ve obviously displayed the fact that you know NOTHING about technology. Continue to post your silly articles and links…and please get your info from people who KNOW what they are talking about. For example…the author of the link you posted above indicated that Voice and text worked. NO SHIT! It has nothing to do with the BB! LOL…
I guess he was out of crap to write, so what the hell…
Interesting how they complain, yet they use the service. Perhaps you should give them a call and tell them about your plan and how the iPhone will seemlessly integrate into their infrastructure and work like a charm. 🙂
I’ll give you a hint of what they’d tell you…”click”.
bluehorseshoe with every post you show all of us the depth of your ignorance. Tell your mom to feed you your dinner and that you need the computer turned off since RIM’s failure and IT’s going for alternative devices is really effecting you. You lack of basic comprehension shows clearly when REAL IT’s in and around the wireless industry comments and you feel you know better.
learn about RIM’s current proprietary, single choke point, single NOC and you too will find it’s not mission critical and also find is unacceptable for reliable data service yesterday, today and in the future. Palm is correct, the quoted people are correct, Robb and Thought are correct.
bluehorseshoe with every post you show all of us the depth of your ignorance, come on it’s been months now of bluehorseshoe ignorance i’m sure all of us at RIMarkable will see even greater depths of FUD and ignorance from resident troll bluehorseshoe.
Oh no..don’t go stealing my lines now you non-creative retard.
You’ve yet to answer my previous posted question. Thus, you’re NOT CORRECT.
As for ignorance, only to you because honestly, I have a low tolerance for STUPID people named hellidiot. Now go take you’re medication and climb back in your cage before they realize you got out once again.
Number one your even more ignorant if you think for a second I’m gonna answer a meaningless forgettable question you ask, other than to tell you to find the answers to your questions yourself like the rest of us which are all capable of finding the TRUTH. You can also be DAMN SURE I’m not going to “steal your lines” other than to quote your ignorance. This game of ignorance you play is a waste of Robb’s bandwidth.
You have many problems not to mention your delusions of grandeur about verizon, but now you even top yourself by arguing the FACTS of RIM’s network. Come on big shot you’ve had the chance all afternoon to show that everyone else is wrong when it comes to RIM’s current proprietary, single choke point, single NOC network, which again was the failure point. RIM’s current proprietary, single choke point, single NOC network will continue to be problematic as everyone also has pointed out too. Come on bluehorseshoe wow us all with your ignorance why you feel RIM’s current network infrastructure (as posted several times above) is mission critical and good enough. RIM’s current Infrastructure is THE problem.
Current Analysis analyst Avi Greengart said the NOC-centric nature of RIM’s solution has always been a target for its competitors, and NOC service outages are a “huge gift to competitors’ marketing departments, because service outages are real. End users feel those. If a BlackBerry solution can be positioned as unreliable, it gives Microsoft, SEVEN, Motorola, Nokia, (Palm, Apple’s iPhone) etc. a big leg-up when courting accounts who do not currently have a mobile email solution.”
Alright bluehorseshoe, wow us all with more of your ignorance, your ego post’s must make you feel really proud of yourself, but you gotta pay to play and your ignorance has put you in debt. Tell us all how everyone but you is wrong when pointing out RIM’s achilles heel, their centralized data center is better than a more distributed model like Google uses. Tell us how RIM’s current proprietary, single choke point, single NOC has every IT analyst and the rest of those in the know confused.
Tell us how (in your opinion of course) why Palm’s ad is false when it come to pointing out their Treo is not held hostage to a rather bad choice in reliance in a single NOC.
Tell us how (in your opinion of course) how our host Robb is wrong in his statement “Sure, you’ve got to reboot your Windows Mobile running Treo once or twice a day, however, when it’s up, you can pretty much send and receive email without worry.”
Tell us how (in your opinion of course) why RIM’s single NOC is a good idea which will work without fail and is a perfect solution for mission critical data.
Come on bluehorseshoe your personal comments and ignorance yet again have gotten you pointed out and given you the attention you so crave. You gotta pay to play and your ignorance has put you in debt, your grandstanding, FUD posting and abuse of RIMarkable and fellow posters who want to discuss the TRUTH not excuses and our resident troll which turns discussion personal when we don’t agree with the never ending ignorance known as bluehorseshoe.
No excuses, NO bluehorseshoe FUD.
FACT…hellidiot is a retard. Look out tonight, the VZW guy is coming to your house to bitch slap you! LOL…
Off the subject, but just read that VZW is going with an unlimited calling plan for 99 per month. Wondering if you heard anything as well, and if so, how it would include the BB plan. I’m guessing 128.99 with the BB plan. Would be curious if you heard or seen it to. It’s been advertised on USA Today and supposed to launch 2/17 according to BGR.
Corection, announcement on the 19th.
Back to Robb’s thread topic…
“Palm’s argument makes sense.
Palm’s basic rationality is why go through a 3rd party vendor (RIM’s NOC) for your email when it can be centrally controlled by your office with a Microsoft Exchange Server. Now, I am no fan of Microsoft, but at least Palm makes sense here. Why “outsource” your business to a 3rd party you have no control over… if you can do it yourself?”
PALM ADVERT IN NEW YORK TIMES
Palm Takes Jab at BlackBerry Outages
Rumor is the Palm pictured in the ad has some witty text furthering the shot at RIM and it’s failures. Does anyone have a full sized ad from the NYT’s?
What’s the matter? Good VZW news and you can’t take it?
You’re such a loser.
While both hellno and bluehorseshoe make some good points, I must say that the award for best line of the debate so far goes to bhs for:
“Look out tonight, the VZW guy is coming to your house to bitch slap you!”
That line had me cracking up…and I don’t mean this as any insult to hellno. I just think that line was a great bit of humor to inject into a rather tedious debate.
I’ll leave the off topic thread crapping award for bluehorseshoe. Whats knee slapping is the thread is about Palm’s ad and comments posted about RIM’s system failures, then as so saddly typical bluehorseshoe thread craps and takes it to a personal, rude, and crude level. But then again we’ve all learn thats all bluehorseshoe is capable of as his ignorance is injected into each and every of his posts here at RIMarkable.
The real shame is because of bluehorseshoe’s thread crapping FUD, childish, fanboy games a real discussion about the truth in Palm’s words verses the quality of service RIM is capable of during their “uptime” was never able to be started. In some ways I agree with Palm pointing out there are other ways for consumers to get email and not have to rely on RIM’s self made proprietary, single choke point, single NOC. In some ways IMO automatic “pull” mail especially if the mail account is IMAP is just as good if not better than RIM’s push system. I also like that all data is not going thru the RIM servers for both speed and reliablity. Now that I’m not browsing just on my BB but also with full HTML on a iPhone web browsing on my BB is not really acceptable. With the ease of use with automatic “pull” email and not depending on RIM’s proprietary, single choke point, single NOC justifying RIM’s monthly fee is getting harder and harder to do. Coupled that with the outages every couple months turning our blackberry’s into a dataless cell phones. Palm’s got a good idea, which IMO at many times is a more reliable system which is neither proprietary, nor relies on a single choke point, single NOC. RIM, when the system is up does email well, but as other devices (hardware and software) advance, and the reality of RIM’s proprietary, single choke point, single NOC failures are weighed it’s IMO easy to see people leaving their BB’s behind for other devices which can provide the same if not better service while not relying on RIM’s proprietary, single choke point, single NOC for all their data needs.
“Look out tonight, the BLACKBERRY guy is coming to your house to bitch slap you!” but then again he probably wouldn’t be able to find anyone with RIM’s proprietary, single choke point, single NOC down, and even if it WAS “the VZW guy” he sure wouldn’t be able to find anyone either since his BB would have crippled GPS and other features and functions removed.
Hellno must have teretts because he keeps repeating the same crap over and over and over. Sometimes several times in the same paragraph! If you read your own stuff before you click, you’d realize what an idiot you really are!
And ignoramus bluehorseshoe aka RIMarkable’s resident troll still is thread crapping and is desperate for attention.
Now back to the topic and away yet again from bluehorseshoe’s ego stroking, grandstanding, ignorant latest thread crap.
Palm goes after BlackBerry in new ads
Palm Takes Shot at RIM for BlackBerry Outage
“All BlackBerry e-mail messages must go through RIM before reaching their destination, which is why BlackBerry users across North America experienced a major BlackBerry blackout when a software update to RIM’s central server went awry earlier this week.
A similar mob-e-mail outage occurred last April, with a number of smaller disruptions taking place between the two major ones.
According to Palm’s ad and homepage, its smartphones offer a lot, “most importantly, uptime.” In addition, you can “Connect to your Microsoft Exchange Server. No third-party servers and no nationwide blackouts.”
“The most recent outage will certainly have a negative effect on RIM’s reputation, which already took a hit because of last year’s blackouts”
TRUTH and on topic discussion before bluehorseshoe ignorance
Seriously hellno, answer this question. If you don’t like the BB, then how come you’re even on this board?
It’s only bluehorseshoe ignorance which claims “If you don’t like the BB” I’ve never said that nor feel that way. As anyone who can think for ones self, and not be a fanboy, RIM’s proprietary, single choke point, single NOC and it’s recent failures is discussion worthy.
Seriously bluehorseshoe, answer this question. If Robb do(esn’t) like the BB, then how come he even started this thread about Palm on his board?
It’s news and discussion worthy, unless your a ignorant fanboy that is…..
Have you read your own crap? Who are you kidding? You cut and paste so much I don’t think you know what the hell you’re doing or saying.
#39. February 18th, 2008, at 10:23 PM.
Have you read your own crap? Who are you kidding? You cut and paste so much I don’t think you know what the hell you’re doing or saying.
Well thats another easy one to solve, thats your personal ignorance and fanboy problems which confuse you. Luckly ALL of the rest of us know exactly what you and your posts are about. (and you don’t impress any of us) Nothing but ego stroking, grandstanding, ignorant latest thread crap ever comes from you bluehorseshoe. Your desperate for attention.
Palm’s New Playful Cunningness
“Last weekend an upgrade to the BlackBerry mobile email service caused and outage that affected millions of users across all US wireless carriers and follows a similar major outage that had taken place last April.”
The Treo screen that reads:
Has anyone heard from our West Coast team?
“Staying connected. It’s a Palm thing.”
“Staying an ignorant fanboy. It’s a bluehorseshoe thing.”
Go buy a Palm then you moron! Good luck with that. Seems anything against RIM or VZW, yahoo. You actually quote blogs? Are you that naive? Based on the links you provide, the answer is yes.
What’s your issue now that VZW has announced the unlimited calling plans and data plans up to 50 GB per month for $39.99? I think 50GB is sufficient enough for most people out there.
The VZW guy saw your comments and is now quoted saying “Can You Hear Me Now, BIOTCH?”
bluehorseshoe shame on you for yet another thread crap to throw yet another
temper tantrum (Temper tantrums range from whining and crying to screaming, kicking, hitting, and breath holding. A temper tantrum is an immature way of expressing anger. This just in from bluehorseshoe mom….. “I can barely bring myself to take him out in public because he throws tantrums so often.”
All because your BS has been called out and buried yet again. Stop using RIMarkable as your personal toilet. The suggestion given to you months ago still would be a wonderful choice for you. Learn and Listen to the TRUTH from those in the know.
The thread posted by our host Robb is about Palm and Palm’s thoughts about its competitor RIM’s failures. Now after 17 of your ignorant thread craps, just in this thread you have added absolutely NOTHING to the discussion other than show a desperate need for personal attention and for some reason try to hide and stop any discussions about the TRUTH about RIM’s system and it’s failures. Problem is bluehorseshoe your not at http://www.powderpuffmarkable.com where hiding and desperately trying to stop real discussions both postive and negative using FUD and turning things personal are the fanboy way. NOPE this is RIMarkable where those in the know discuss reality and our host choses to have REAL disscussion’s both postive and negative about worthy topics. YOU bluehorseshoe have proven time and time again for months now YOU CAN’T HANDLE REALITY. It has beeen suggested you find a forum like http://www.powderpuffmarkable.com which is geared more to your fragile ego, where everything is positive, since it’s inside verizon’s walled garden and everything has been crippled wit functions and features removed.
RIM’s poorly designed system has a failure and your first reaction upon hearing about it is to pat yourself on the back for being part of a big club of blackberry users, (love me daddy) then you go on to say the outage was no big deal.. this coming from a fanboy who claims his mobile device is used so heavily he needs to carry around several backup batteries. It’s pointed out by several fellow members that the blackberry is thought of as a mission critical device which to this day you still haven’t gained the mental capacity to understand and RIM’s proprietary, single choke point, single NOC is not at all mission critical and has shown it’s poor design though several recent failures. Sure when a ignorant fanboy’s blackberry is turned into a paperweight by yet another RIM system failure it’s no big deal, but thank goodness RIM Blackberry’s are used by more than ignorant fanboy’s like our resident RIMarkable troll bluehorseshoe.
Palm with it’s recent Ad points out just another piece of REALITY, RIM’s proprietary, single choke point, single NOC is not at all mission critical and there are other solutions which don’t rely on a proprietary, single choke point, single NOC which IT’s will find can be a more mission critical device or at very least use a better system for reliable data.
Robb posting a thread for discussion again exposes RIM’s problems proprietary, single choke point, single NOC. A thread which divides those in the know which want to discuss REALITY from ignorant fanboys such as bluehorseshoe who’s mental capacity only allows thread craps, ego stroking posts, and worse attacking and name calling those in the know who discuss TRUTH and REALITY instead of trying desperately to hide the TRUTH and REALITY about RIM or worse ignorant bluehorseshoe’s ultimate wet dream verizon and it’s well known anti-consumer actions which include a http://www.powderpuffmarkable.com definition of the word “unlimited” and worse verizon’s crippling and feature and function removal on customers devices.
Palm has it right in it’s AD. Discussion here at RIMarkable of REALITY and TRUTH is a good way for RIM to get the message and perhaps chose to decide to redesign it’s proprietary, single choke point, single NOC which is always ripe for it’s next failure. FUD and thread craps RETARD discussion, heck if RIM is looking at some posted ignorant comments about the failure like “once every few months isn’t going to hurt. I just resort back to using my laptop and booting it up. Big deal. It’s also a great excuse to just stop looking at the damn thing anyway.” it seems RIM shouldn’t waste the time making the service better. RIM’s future relies on more than a failure prone proprietary, single choke point, single NOC. RIM’s perceived reputation has been a mission critical system, each failure is showing everyone from CEO’s, IT’s and all the way to consumers that RIM’s systems is far from mission critical. Palm’s AD points out other methods which are available which how they are designed they are more mission critical.
Discussion of REALITY and TRUTH only hurt ignorant fanboy’s like our resident RIMarkable troll bluehorseshoe.
Do you realize that bluehorseshoe isn’t really debating with you so much as they are just pushing your buttons? Additionally, I believe that Robb was using a lot of sarcasm in his original post.
We all know that you hate CDMA, Verizon, and love the iPhone. What else are you passionate about?
Just an FYI…you’re ‘War & Peace’ versioned responses I no longer look at or read. Just a waste of time since you most likely paste the same crap you typed above it. I’m confident enough to know that I’m not missing anything major because you’re simply a retard. You’re writing pattern and choice of words is proof in the pudding that you are ‘crippled’ in the mental capacity, very much like the verizon Pearl I have, except my phone can spell better than you.
Good luck zealot, fanboy, FUD, sheep, and other funny, retarded lines you use.
Did you really need to ask him what else he’s passionate about (Coco Puffs and Unicorns?)? LOL…this should be interesting if he knows how to respond to the question.
Perhaps all parties need to simmer down a bit.
I would echo the call to “hellno” to make his comments shorter; on the net it’s usually bad form to post such lengthy responses, as it tends to lose reader interest.
The bottom line is that we can agree to disagree on these issues; they are fun issues, not life changing ones.
The BB is a great device and system and is by far and away king of corporate email. However, like all products, it can be improved, and certainly RIM should beef up its server redundancies to avoid these embarrassing service outages.
The iPhone is a very cool and innovative device, a real game changer. But it will not threaten the BB in the corporate world any time soon.
As to Palm, well, their products are sad these days, simply outdated. They are not really a serious competitor to either RIM or Apple, IMHO. However, even they manage to sell some units.
Yet another rude and crude thread crapping, love me daddy post from ignorant fanboy bluehorseshoe our childish resident RIMarkable troll. He so desperate to get the last word in, even though all his posts and even himself have been pointed out as BS and a waste of Robb’s bandwidth. Posts might run a little long but they are on topic and have quality, unlike bluehorseshoe’s grandstanding diarrhea posts which contribute nothing but stroke a real losers fragile ego.
http://www.powderpuffmarkable.com must be buzzing with bluehorseshoe’s Temper tantrums.
I am all for healthy debate in the comments but guys… Come on. You two have been going back and forth for a year. Why don’t you exchange emails so you that you can continue outside of my comments section.
Name one other poster outside of hellno that has had an issue with me?
Name the number of posters that have had issues with hellno in the past 5 articles posted? Better yet, in this article alone?
I’d bet $$$ that if he went away, so would all the BS.
The funny thing is I think some people actually enjoy the banter and insults being tossed. It may take away from the subject a bit, but you can always rely on the fact that mention of the iPhone, how VZW sucks and open standard GSM rules and everyone else is sheep will always bring us back to topic.
OK, I’m sorry, I couldn’t resist.
Yet another rude, crude thread crapping, love me daddy post from ignorant fanboy bluehorseshoe our childish resident RIMarkable troll. He so desperate to get the last word in, even though all his posts and he, himself have been pointed out each and every time as BS and a waste of Robb’s bandwidth.
TAKE Responsibility for your own posts. The is no excuse you bluehorseshoe can use for your thread crapping, diarrhea posts. Most here at RIMarkable know all too well the lack of quality in bluehorseshoe the person and bluehorseshoe’s posting and instantly ignore them as nothing but ignorant fanboy, grandstanding, ego stroking crap with FUD thrown in making bluehorseshoe even more the ignoramus.
The real shame is the thread crapping FUD, childish, fanboy games blocking a real discussion about the truth in Palm’s words verses the quality of service RIM is capable of during their “uptime” was never able to be started. Sadly this happens in most threads here as:

As always, TRUTH and on topic discussion before bluehorseshoe ignorance
