Nope, Merck. Pfizer let go of many of their staff and I'm not a fan of the company.

Wake Up ad in today's paper brings the LOLs.

or

That's old thinking. As RIM says,

"These days being "in business" means you're the kind of person who takes action and make things happen. You don't just think different...you do different."

I'm guessing they're implying "doing differently" extends beyond "so, I bought a blackberry."

RIMs big selling point in the past was BES - now that isn't such a big plus as data connections aren't complete shit now and the push service on Exchange 07 & 2010 actually works & they have sorted most of the security issues they had earlier that BES solved.

There are still a few bits and bobs that it does well, but not so much to warrant the extra licensing and administration burden.

If you are using notes or groupwise as your messing platform though, BES is still a real nice option.

a few years ago we installed an sbs2008 server for a client of ours and they insisted on running their own bes so had a 2nd one to run that. They didn't tell us at the time so we got server 2008 to run on the 2nd server. We then find out they wanted BES and only the enterprise version ran on 2008. They only had 4 users! That was an expensive exercise for them

12 months later they all bought iphones and had exchange pushing everything. Experts at wasting money.

Nothing (yet).

The 9900 was released nearly a year ago... its time for a refresh of some of teh lower end models, as well as the London is due out in the next few months.. Maybe they are just warming up everyone and reminding them that they were the first and best for quite some time at the whole email on your phone thing.
