IrDA on Mac OS X
I have an Alcatel 735 phone with Infrared capability, and I think I could get some software written for it based on http://openobex.sourceforge.net and gammu, but I would like to know what are my options for IR. I have a USB to Serial Adaptor, and am thinking about making a Serial to IR adaptor. Anyone know if this is possible?
What USB-IR bridges have people sucessfully used (not necessarily with this phone but in general), or alternatively Serial-IR adaptors?
I would like to initially sync contacts and scheduler events, but also one day sync pictures etc (phone has built in camera), and maybe sometimes use it as a modem for with my PB12.
Does anyone know if Mac OS X has a API for programming IrDA applications? I don't really want to have to write any kernel extensions....
Any GSM phone sync utils in general?

Thanks 7on, you are right, but USB keyboards and mice use a propiertery IR interface, and not the IrDA standard. They present themselves to the computer (usually) as a standard wired keyboard or mice I think. Nice idea though...
Has anyone used IrDA sucessfully with an external USB or Serial to IrDA bridge? How bout a homemade one...
