Blackberry Synch

Drat, I've just paid for PocketMac for Blackberry!

I reckon a lot more needs to be done for the Mac community in terms of Blackberry support. PocketMac does synch with the Mac but only through USB and not Bluetooth (apparently that's more to do with the device than anything else though).

We need an app load and all the bells and whistles that the Windows fraternity gets. It would surely be mutually beneficial for Apple and Blackberry, at the moment I can't even update the Blackberry OS via my Mac.

Still pointless...

Until RIM offers the BB Desktop Manager for Mac, this is just smoke & mirrors. So what if I save $30? I still have to have a PC for the manager software.
