Exchange and BES

I’m hoping someone can point me in the right direction:

I want to setup a BES/Exchange setup that pushes email to a blackberry device. I want the e-mail to be sent to the blackberry device only. I do not want a copy of the message left on the server.

I just want exchange to relay e-mail, but not store the messages. End users with their blackberry devices will be responsible for backing up their data. If they wipe the device, there will be no mail on the server.

I currently support an environment where messages are stored on Exchange and pushed to BB devices. I guess I’m asking if this alternative option is even possible with Exchange?

Weibo services ‘punished’ for Beijing coup rumors, comments temporarily disabled


For a country who doesn’t really do April Fools’ Day, you know China means business when it lays the smackdown on its weibo services. Here’s the background story: about a week ago there was a rumor on the Chinese web about a military coup on one of the main streets in Beijing, and coincidentally I was in town around the time (for the Windows Phone launch). Funnily enough, I wasn’t aware of this at all until my taxi driver in Hong Kong asked me about my visit, as he claimed that the passenger he picked up beforehand was actually a Chinese military officer who had several intense phone calls about said coup.

But of course, nothing actually happened. In fact, the guards at Tiananmen Square and the Forbidden City were pretty relaxed when I visited on that very day. As for the rumormongers, the Chinese government announced through Xinhua that 16 websites have been shut down and six people have been detained, while local microblogging platforms Sina Weibo and Tencent Weibo have been “criticized and punished accordingly,” though it didn’t elaborate on the details. All we know is that comments under each weibo post are now disabled until local time 8pm on April 3rd, during which these two companies can, in their own words, clean up the mess. Well, at least we now know where to draw the line for China’s April Fools’.

Motorola Droid RAZR ICS Version 6.14.75 Update Leaked

Thanks to a post by XDA Forums Member jm700wx, it has  come to our attention that the fabled ICS update for the CDMA version of the Motorola Droid RAZR has been leaked and is available for users to install. In addition to all your favorite ICS apps, the ROM also contains several updates and bugfixes, as well as the previously unreleased upcoming version of Motoblur—Motorola’s infamous Android UI replacement with a focus on messaging and social networking.

If you’d like to give it a try, XDA Senior Member yalkowni has put together a quick guide to install the update and keep root with links to all necessary files. The process for installing the leak is fraught with peril and will wipe your entire device, so before trying ANYTHING be sure to completely back up your RAZR. He mentions that you must install this update from stock .173 so you should be familiar with RSD Lite before attempting to do anything. If you’d like to get the update running on your own handset, you can find his guide in the ROM thread.

Samsung Galaxy S Gets Android 4.0 Via CyanogenMod 9

Samsung Galaxy S has just received that rumored Value Pack software in Korea, as a consolation prize for not getting Android 4.0 officially. However, there’s still the unofficial route, via CyanogenMod 9, if you want Android 4.0 ICS on your Galaxy S unit.

And I would really trust the CyanogenMod release in the case of the Galaxy S, since it’s made by Cyanogen and his team. As you know, Cyanogen aka Steve Kondik was hired by Samsung, so he must have some perks there and access to their latest codes and Android 4.0 development. Back to the release, we now have the alpha version of the CyanogenMod 9 software, that includes Android 4.0 and brings it to the 2010 Galaxy S. There’s still the usual bugs to fix and problems, but rest assured that the final version with everything fixed will come soon. Usually when bugs are present they involve connectivity and camera, but I can’t really tell in this case.

You can download the software from here if you feel brave and this is the CyanogenMod 9 alpha build for the international Galaxy S i9000, in case you’re wondering. Carrier specific ROMs will also be arriving soon. If any of you installed the newest Cyanogen, feel free to offer feedback below in the comments.

BMW adds extra sportiness to its i-series lineup, unveils i8 Concept Spyder

We’ve swooned over BMW’s i3 and i8 plug-in gasoline electric hybrids for some time now, so naturally our hearts raced today when the company announced its latest addition to the series, the i8 Concept Spyder. What you’re looking at is essentially a sportier version of the i8 Coupe, with the appropriate accents and design tweaks to match. So, what’s different in this variant of the nearly gull-winged wonder with a 96 kW / 131hp electric motor up front and 164 kW / 223hp gasoline engine on back? BMW notes that the vehicle features a shorter wheelbase and overall length (all while maintaining its 50-50 weight distribution), a slighter darker interior and refreshed paint job on its exterior, topless roof and even a pair of matching folded kickboards(!) that stow in the back. BMW hasn’t mentioned when they’ll be showing this Spyder in flesh, but as Autoblog notes, the New York Auto show is only a week way — and we’ll be sure to let you know if we spot it ourselves. In the meantime, you can zip over to Autoblog and the press release after the break for the details.

Configure blackberry MMS settings?

I can’t dial the digicel *120# to recieve a message telling me how much balance I have. It only sends it as a phone call, and tells me "the number you have dialed is incorrect". How can I configure the native MMS application on the Blackberry 8830 World Edition phone? I can’t check how much balance I have nor can I transfer money to another phone. (n) Please help!

remove wrong autocomplete addresses from the Blackberry

If you made a typo while composing an email in the receipients address then blackberry OS from now on will present you the wrong address for some time.

This is annoying. Until now I did not find a way to delete a wrong autocomplete address.

But now I found a workaround:
Add a contact to your addressbook with the wron email address. Send an email. Then, delete the entry from the address book. The wrong address is removed also from the Cache.

Works for me on OS5.

HTC One Handsets Now Available in Germany Via Local Retailer Media Markt!

We first found out that the HTC One handsets were going to reach Europe on April 5th, then HTC came and confirmed the debut on April 2nd. Now it appears the launch happened prematurely, at least in Germany, where the HTC One S and One X are already available via local retailer Media Markt.

The One X is priced at 579 euros, 20 euros less than the suggested retail price of 599 euros, while the One S is 519 euros, 20 euros more than the suggested 499 price tag. Meanwhile, the pricing for the One V is not even known , at least not on Media Markt, but the suggested price is around 299 euros. If you’re in Germany now you must feel lucky, since you can buy this Android 4.0 newcomers earlier than anyone else in Europe. You get HTC Sense 4.0 early and those powerful new cameras with ImageSense technology.

HTC One X also offers 32GB of storage, a quad core Tegra 3 CPU and a 4.7 inch 720p display, while the One S has a waistline thinner than 8mm and a beautiful design. Expect many German language previews and reviews to appear this weekend with full details!

Botbrew Brings Linux Tools and Package Management to Android

It wasn’t long ago we brought users their first taste of Botbrew when the popular V6 Supercharger Script was ported to the Nook Color. However, that is not the end of the story for the spunky application. As time has gone on and development has improved, Botbrew is getting ready to hit the streets as a universal Android app.

Started by XDA Senior Member inportb for use on the Barnes & Noble Nook Color, the lightweight package manager has been improved upon numerous times, and it has been brought to our attention from inportb that this application will likely hit the Market sometime in the near future. How far into the near future is anyone’s guess, but that’s the game plan.

For those who don’t know, here’s a description of what Botbrew actually is:

BotBrew is a repository of *nix software (such as bzip2, curl, openssl, python, and ruby) powered by Opkg, a lightweight package manager that feels like dpkg+apt. BotBrew is also a build system for anyone looking to build and package his/her own scripts and programs.

Before we continue, I’d like to thank the Opkg developers for making such a powerful and lightweight utility, mateorod for testing the heck out of this thing, and YOU for using BotBrew. Now then…

Given that Linux is the operating system of choice for most developers and that good package managers are rare and hard to come on Android, this application becoming universal could be just what the doctor ordered. The application checks for Opkg, and installs it if it is not present. From there, users have a powerful interface with a nice GUI to do anything from install scripts to create scripts to building programs. What more could one possibly need in a single application, assuming of course that it has the usual bug of not making you bacon.

For more information on the application, including instructions on use and download links, and to keep track of development progress as it gets closer to prime time, head on over to the original thread.

Review: Protect your BlackBerry 9900/9930 in style with the Case-Mate Tough Case

"The Case-Mate Tough Case offers heavy duty protection in a lightweight stylish design"

In Short:
"Sturdy case without the bulk to easily fit in your purse or pocket"
Should I Buy?
"Solid well-built accessory that protects your device from the pitfalls of daily use"

Case-Mate Tough

One of the first things I do when purchasing a new BlackBerry smartphone is pick up a case. So it’s no surprise that over the years I’ve accumulated quite a few. Some I’ve used, some are dented, and others have not been up to the task of having me as an owner. As Barney Stinson would say, my klutziness is, wait for it, LEGENDARY. People actually take bets on when the next drop will be. Now I own the Seidio ACTIVE case and holster for both my Torch 9800 and Bold 9900 but they have a tendency to lock up your device or be slippery in the hands. That’s why after a little bit of searching through the CrackBerry Store I decided to check out the Case-Mate Tough Case and see if could withstand the rigors of daily use. What’s the final verdict you may ask? Click on the jump to find out.

Google Maps 8-bit version for NES: April Fools arrives a day early in Mountain View


Well, it appears that April Fools in full effect — at least if you ask Google. Today the company introduced its “latest” build of Google Maps, dubbed Google Maps 8-bit version, tailored specifically for the Nintendo Entertainment System. According to Google, this Dragonquest spoof version of Maps will come in the form of a special NES cartridge that can connect to the internet via dial-up. This apparently allows most of the heavy lifting to get done on Google’s servers, where the maps are rendered to 8-bit form “in real-time.” Better yet, it even supports voice search. Naturally, there’s no word on a release date, but you can currently check out the “beta” by visiting Google Maps in your browser and selecting “Start Your Quest.” That said, that company warns that “your system may not meet the minimum requirements for 8-bit computations” — something tells us it’ll still be less resource-intensive than Crysis, though. We’ve checked it out and found some goodies, including an alien at Area 51, so let us know what you come across during your journey in the comments.

[Thanks to everyone who sent this in]

Great Little War Game comes to the BlackBerry PlayBook

Great Little War Game

I’ve only been playing this game for a few hours, but already I’m totally addicted. Great Little War Game is an awesome strategy game for the BlackBerry PlayBook that I can already see will take up wayyy too much of my time. The premise of the game is simple and and it’s super easy to get the hang of it so you can jump right in.

Take command of your army and battle the foe on land, sea and air but be sure to make wise decisions as you go. You want to deploy your soldiers to take full advantage of the higher terrain, natural choke points, ambush spots and defensive walls. Get it right and the bad guys will lose to your superior strategy skills. 

Great Little War Game features various modes including skirmish, multiplayer and campaign as well as various difficulty levels and much, much more. While the price tag is at the higher end for a game at .99, it’s well worth that and more. Check out more at the link below.

Expedia adds to Google’s EU antitrust woes, decision expected after Easter

Google’s position as the dominant search engine doesn’t come without a price. Smaller search sites have already tapped on the EU Commission’s door to register their complaints about how they are ranked, and Microsoft has also let its feelings on the matter be known. Now, we can add the Redmond spin-off, Expedia, to that list of sore losers disgruntled firms. The travel search site claims it has specific details outlining how the search giant has violated European anti-competitive laws. A Google spokesperson issued a statement saying “We haven’t seen the complaint yet, but we’ve been working to explain how our business works, cooperating with the European Commission since this investigation began.” The EU Competition Commissioner says a decision will be made after Easter, at which point Mountain View will either be charged, or the investigation will be dropped. If only that were the end of its EU troubles.
