Much as I hate it, my profession and the increasing lagtime of both TenFourFox and Aurorafox will have me purchasing an Intel Mac in the new year with a portion of our tax refund.

I want to keep the style as close as I can to the PowerBooks so I've been looking at a 2009 MBP model that is capable of running Mountain Lion but still has the aluminum body style.

I still plan on using my PowerBooks as browsing machines however. I don't need that much when just surfing around at Starbucks.

You can use PhoneView, I tested it yesterday.

If you have your calendars and contacts stored on iCloud, the iCloud website works on PowerPC.

Syncmate is actually more Windows Mobile. They've expanded into other areas, including the iPhone now, but it seems the latest version requires Snow Leopard.

I like SyncMate though, I have it on my other Mac and used it to keep my Entourage contacts (through Address Book) synced with my HTC Touch Pro.

Thanks. It's just plain crazy that this works. I was able to log in to iCloud using my Apple ID/password. But when I tried to open notes, I got the following message: "To use iCloud Notes, create a new email address by turning on Notes in your iCloud settings using iOS or OS X." Can you tell me what this means?

Thanks again.
