    I read somewhere on these boards that palm is discontinuing support for OS X. Does anyone know this to be true?

    It's true. Look around PalmSource for more details.

    Palm spun off software division (PalmSource) into a seperate software company (PalmSource.)

    Hardware division (Palm) merged with HandSpring to form palmOne.

    Actually, I did some research and found out it's not true. OS X will continue to be supported by Palm. Yay! :D

    Where did you hear this? Palm has stated flat out that Cobalt will not ship with a version of Palm Desktop for OS X. There will continue to be 3rd party software but there won't be any out of the box support for OS X.

    I hope they go with a 3rd Party manufacture. Mainly because Palm Desktop is the Devil. Oh well.

    What I want from my Palm is the ability to sync my Address book right.

    I want the picture to sync and more importantly I want the address groups to sync.
