- BES won't manage BlackBerry 10 devices, and RIM won't upgrade BES to do so. Instead, the imminent BES 5.0.4 is the end of the road, though it will be supported for the foreseeable future.
- RIM now says it will ship a new mobile management server called BlackBerry Device Service to manage BlackBerry 10 devices. But BDS won't manage today's BlackBerrys.
- At the end of the day, this means an organization will need to run both BES and BDS servers if they have a mix of BlackBerry devices: BlackBerry 7 and earlier smartphones will be managed by BES, and BlackBerry 10 smartphones and any PlayBooks will be managed by BDS.
- BlackBerry Enterprise Service 10 (not Server, as in BES) allows IT to manage both BES and BDS devices from a single pane of glass. It's not a unified BlackBerry management server, just a common front end.
- If you choose not to deploy BDS, BlackBerry 10 smartphones and PlayBook 2.0 tablets can be managed via a server that supports Exchange ActiveSync, as they support the core EAS policies. Such servers include Microsoft Exchange, System Center 2012, Google Apps for Enterprise, and a whole cottage industry of cloud-based EAS-based MDM services. RIM says BDS will offer more management capabilities for its devices than EAS provides.
From the NYT:
Local amphibian fans can be forgiven for not noticing the new frog's unique nature. "I wouldn't know which one I was holding because they all look so similar," said Ms. Newman, who is now pursuing her Ph.D. at Louisiana State University. "But all of our results showed this one's lineage is very clearly genetically distinct."
No nullable primitive types.
They have them for primitive types, actually, and had for ages - java.lang.Integer for int etc.
No, that's not the same thing. Integer (and Long, etc) are objects, not primitives. The GP's point was that in Java you can't say e.g.
int i = null;
I've not tried that (and don't have a JDK installed on this machine) but I would expect a compile-time error. (I've not tried it in C# either for that matter)
It’s really quite funny that you want to publicize this spat.
Any sane person could see from this thread that you are clearly batshit insane. And you apparently want people to read it? Why... are you so delusional that you think they’ll agree with you?

Considering that cars are one of the few products that are still manufactured in the US, I'd say it could be a bad thing. A country that thinks that it can survive on imports without making anything itself is going to get exactly what it deserves: bankrupcy.
