Leaked: BlackBerry Storm 9500 OS

Well Storm 9500 owners, this one is for you all. has leaked and is now  available for you all too download. Lots of talk in the forums regarding this one already so be sure to check all the threads out if you are hesitant in loading this one. We posted the link without RIM internal tools but keep in mind if you are using other links posted, you may have to remove them yourself.

*OS Disclaimer – This is an unofficial release. If you choose to install, do so at your own risk and only if you’re comfortable in the process of upgrading and downgrading your device software. It is quite normal during operating system development for certain features to be crippled or disabled while others are tested, and these beta builds often reflect that. They are not always better. Depending on your BlackBerry comfort level, it may be best for you to wait for community feedback on a build before deciding to download and install for yourself or simply wait for the next official release. If you require support, you will find it in our CrackBerry forums via our extremely knowledgeable community base – do not contact your carrier or RIM for Beta OS technical support (their first course of action will be to advise you to downgrade to a supported OS).

BGR's Blackberry 9700 Initial Impression

Saying the BlackBerry Bold 9700 is a highly-anticipated device is a bit of an understatement. Like the Bold 9000, the 9700 represents the pinnacle of what the traditional BlackBerry experience is all about, though compared to its predecessor packs more punch into a much smaller package.

We brought you our initial BlackBerry Bold 9700 Review back in May, when the pre-production “onyx” aka 9020 units were still sporting a trackball and plastic battery cover. Since then we’ve seen the device get christened as the 9700, we’ve seen it get a faux-leather door along with the touch-sensitive trackpad introduced on the Curve 8520. We’ve also seen it pop up in T-Mobile clothing as well, which apparently under the hood has some slight differences than its AT&T (& other GSM carriers counterpart) in we **think** the form of a different battery and processor. 

In the weeks ahead we’ll undoubtedly start “officially” seeing and learning more about the next-generation Bold, but in the meantime the Boy Genius has added to the ton of pre-release coverage that’s been hitting the web recently and given his thoughts on an early Bold 9700 unit, which in reviewing the hardware proclaims it as the finest BlackBerry ever crafted, which I know is music to the ears of all who are jonesing for this device. If you haven’t checked it out yet, be sure to jump over and read his review. It’s solid.

Wer ist schneller: Windows 7, Vista und XP im Vergleich

Microsoft verspricht bei Windows 7 hohe Performance und verbesserte Energiesparfunktionen. Wir überprüfen die Behauptung und vergleichen Rechenleistung und Effizienz von Windows 7, Windows Vista SP2 und Windows XP SP3 auf drei aktuellen PC-Plattformen.

Microsofts Windows Vista ist sowohl im Privat- als auch im Business-Einsatz nicht sonderlich beliebt. Besonders Unternehmen bleiben Windows XP seit langem treu. Das Betriebssystem läuft stabil, die verwendeten Anwendungen machen mit XP keine Probleme. Es gäbe somit keinen zwingenden Grund, auf Windows Vista zu wechseln, so der Tenor vieler IT-Verantwortlicher. Selbst Intel, langjähriger Partner von Microsoft, hält im eigenen Unternehmen Abstand von Vista.

Auf Windows 7 will Intel seine Firmen-PCs allerdings umstellen. Das neue Betriebssystem von Microsoft biete eine höhere Performance und die verbesserten Energiesparfunktionen erhöhen die Effizienz – dies seien die Früchte der intensiven Zusammenarbeit beider Unternehmen bei der Entwicklung von Windows 7. Natürlich arbeitete auch Microsofts Technologiepartner AMD an Windows 7 mit. Entsprechend profitieren AMD-Plattformen ebenfalls von Windows 7, so lässt es sich jedenfalls nachlesen.

Doch gesagt wird von den Unternehmen viel, Windows 7 soll schließlich zum Erfolg werden. Für den Anwender und IT-Verantwortlichen zählen jedoch nur Fakten. Zuerst müssen natürlich die verwendeten Programme ohne Kompatibilitätspobleme laufen. Erst dann wird entschieden, ob aufgrund einer besseren Performance und dem sparsameren Umgang mit der Energie ein Umstieg auf Windows 7 lohnt.

Diese Frage wollen wir beantworten. Auf drei aktuellen PC-Plattformen vergleichen wir die Systemleistung und Energieeffizienz von Windows XP SP3, Windows Vista SP2 und Windows 7 in den 32-Bit-Versionen. Hier zeigt sich, ob und welche Fortschritte die verschiedenen Windows-Generationen in Bezug auf die Performance und Energieaufnahme bieten.

Alle Ergebnisse finden Sie im Artikel Test: Windows 7, Vista und XP im Benchmark-Vergleich. (cvi)

Leaked: OS for the BlackBerry Tour! http://viigo.im/0Xo0


Support lifecycle changes for Windows 2000 Server and Windows Server 2003

Extended Support for Windows 2000 Server will end on July 13, 2010. At this time, Windows 2000 Server will no longer be publicly supported. You will be able to continue using Self-Help Online Support.

Also on July 13, 2010, Windows Server 2003 and Windows Server 2003 R2 (at a supported service pack level) will move from Mainstream Support to Extended Support. That means Microsoft will continue to provide security updates and paid support and customers will continue to have access to all security updates and Self-Help Online Support options. Non-security hot fixes developed during the Extended Support phase will be provided only to customers who enroll in Extended Hotfix Support.

Microsoft will not have a SP3 release for Windows Server 2003.

For more on the Microsoft Support Lifecycle, see the Microsoft Support Lifecycle Policy page.

Blackberry OS 5.0 Update: Official Statement

The three big questions in the CrackBerry world right now are When is the BlackBerry Storm 9550/9520 getting released?, When can I buy a BlackBerry Bold 9700? and last but not least, When is OS 5.0 going to get rolled out?

While I kind of enjoy that anxious excitement of waiting to get my hands on a new BlackBerry, waiting on OS 5.0 has been a bit more frustrating of an experience. Back in May, RIM officially unveiled its BlackBerry Enterprise Server 5.0 offering at the Wireless Enterprise Symposium event. Throughout the week at various sessions (including a press session) and in speaking to different individuals, I was informed on more than one occasion that the corresponding 5.0 device software should be available in the early fall (ie. late August/early September as it was told to me). With August gone and September flying by, I turned to RIM this week to get an official update, and was provided with the following statement:

The roll out process has begun for BlackBerry Device Software 5.0 with the recent beta release of BlackBerry JDE 5.0 (BlackBerry Java Development Environment 5.0) to BlackBerry Developer Zone at www.blackberry.com/developers to prepare the BlackBerry developer community for pending device software releases. As can be expected, BlackBerry Device Software 5.0 will follow before the end of the year, as referenced in the “RIM Launches BlackBerry Enterprise Server 5.0” press release that was issued at WES 2009 (http://press.rim.com/release.jsp?id=2309).

I know it’s not the kind of reply many of us would have liked to hear, but at least it’s an official update and shows where things are at (sort of). I guess the good thing is that 5.0 will have to be here before midnight on New Year’s eve, which is actually comforting given some of the recent rumors I have heard stating it may even be February 2010 before 5.0 is live on all devices (that are getting the update). It’s clear that since word first popped up of 5.0 that RIM has been going back and adding even more features than were originally slated for the update, which is likely slowing down the process. Likewise, we know that the Storm 9550/9520 and Bold 9700 when launched will be released running 5.0, so we can expect at least a partial rollout with these devices and hopefully other existing on the market devices will get the update at/around the same time (or hopefully even sooner). Of course there have been some 5.0 leaks to date, but with lots of apps not co-operating yet it has been more of a tease than a fix.
