    just curious, i have a client that has bought a blackberry PDA and now after the fact has asked how to sync it with their powerbook. does anyone know if iSync will work for a blackberry, or if there are other software solutions out there. the blackberry site is a labyrinth. any help would be mostgreatlyappreciated.

    rock on!

    "Blackberry can't be supported because Pumatech won't program a MacOS version. Pumatech won't program a MacOS version because not enough of their OEM customers are asking for one."

    thanx for the info. i'll be a monkey's left nut. it's the whole "not a big enough market" argument again. turns out most mac users are more technically apt and are early adopters, maybe the "geniuses" of this technology will realize this fact.

    we'll hang in there. thanx for your help.

    "not big enough market"

    If people understood that Mac users are early adopters, then they would understand that it takes a smaller (mac) market to be able to make the same profits as a larger (other) market.

    Then again, if they understood that, Apple might have some competition. As it stands, while it appears to compete against other companies (and well, does), it doesn't. It works in its own market - early adopters, people who appreciate simplicity and elegance, people who appreciate things getting done right, and know enough to see the difference.

    Someone explain this to Blackberry... maybe in a little bit clearer fashion.
