    From Software Update:

    iSync lets you manage your contacts, calendars, To Do lists, and Safari bookmarks across multiple Mac OS X computers and devices (such as an iSync-compatible mobile phone, Palm OS device, or iPod), so you always have your most current information with you. To sync a Palm OS device, you need to install the iSync Palm Conduit version 1.2 or later.


    iSync 1.4 includes support for more Symbian OS smart phones and the iPod mini, as well as stability improvements.


    Before you install iSync 1.4, you must install iCal 1.5.1 or later. To download the latest version of iCal, visit www.apple.com/ical.


    If you are using Mac OS X version 10.3 and plan to synchronize a Bluetooth mobile phone, you need to have Bluetooth version 1.5 or later installed. To download it, use Software Update (in System Preferences). If you have an earlier version of Mac OS X, visit www.apple.com/isync to download the appropriate Bluetooth version.

    I hope it syncs better with my Palm OS handheld I have not been very satisfied with ISync as a whole for Palm syncing.

    another feature that wasn't mentioned:
    Finally, .Mac users who sync their bookmarks can now view, edit and use them from any browser by visiting bookmarks.mac.com.

    I am not positive about this but haven't .mac members been able to do that for some time now. I have been using a windows machine to browse my bookmarks for months. Not sure about editing them though

    Well the update may cause his mac to explode and kill him and by posting that we know the last thing he did before he died so we don't make the same mistake.

    Feature I'd like to see....

    For those of us that will use this update to sync information between two computers (like my desktop at home and my laptop) I'd love to see the ability to sync my mail directory, so that I don't have to download two copies of all my mail (one to each machine). granted, I could just drag and copy my Mail folder from the library, but to include it in the process would be great. Anyone have any insight as to why this hasn't been looked at? Harder than I am assuming?

    Wow! well integrated. Until I found out that I could "show address bar" I tought it was a full fledged safari plug-in. It really looks like a bookmark remote/editor. Try it if you have'nt already (The previous link did not work for me but I found it on www.mac.com) It's of limited use, unless you're accessing your bookmarks from a PC, but nice nonetheless. Never noticed that link on dotmac.

    ...but your mail is already in sync. Using iSync with mobiles for example causes multiple copies to be kept - it's the whole point.

    If you only want one mail file (thus increasing the risk of data loss) then you should be able to get the desktop to use the mail folder on your laptop for mail storage if you share it on your laptop then set the desktop to use it under account preferences.

    You've been able to do this for months and months, at least since July of last year.

    so is this update for ALL OS X users? Or are those of us using the antiquated 10.2.8 out of luck just like the new Safari?

    ...and if you don't have .Mac, you can use my free service at http://www.mywebsitelinks.com which if I didn't know better would suspect is where they got the idea. (Tracking links for free since June 2001)

    Re: Re: Feature I'd like to see....

    No, what I mean, is that I have a home computer. It's my main use computer. However, I take my laptop with me to school and out with me. I use a pop account run off my webserver, and if I'm at school and grab my mail, then I have the choice of deleting it from my server when it downloads, or leaving it there, and when I get home downloading the message again. Repeat for each account. Now, I could copy my mail folder over by hand, but I can do the same thing with my calendars and contact info, so I don't see that it would be that hard for them to just add that into isync. Syncronize junk mail filters, certain accounts only, etc. etc. In a multi computer household or network I could see that being at least somewhat helpful. instead of doing it by hand. Haven't downloaded the update yet (at school) so I haven't seen the functionality of syncing calendars and contacts from one computer to the other, so maybe I misunderstanding that part of this update. Ah well.

    So, when are them G5 powerbooks coming out. :)
