    Hi all,

    I'm concidering to buy a Palm LifeDrive.. but i can't really figure out, does it sync with my ical, addressbook and stuff? Or do i need any third party software?

    And an other question, i'd love to hear from someone who own's one! Are they worth it?

    tanks in advance....

    Wait. Wait. Wait. The first version of the Life Drive is buggy and does not work as advertised. Please check out the reviews at PC Magazine. There are many products out there that will sync either a Palm or Windows Mobile <gasp> device with a Mac. Pick up an issue of Macworld or google it.

    I did check m out, and tried to read as many reviews as i could. Only point of concert in my opion is the battery life....

    Maybe i'm not reading the right reviews.....

    What does concert me is the sync... where palm refers to a conduet of some sort... i'm not sure what that is...

    I use Palm Desktop on my Mac with LifeDrive via BT. My Ti PB and LD sync perfectly via BT connection. I don't use iCal nor Address Book for syncing as Palm Desktop is good enough. I can even export the contact list to Word so that I can use Mail Merge to generate the Christmas Card labels.

    Battery Life for LD is decent. I am in sales and I use LD all the time to manage my contacts and scheduling. It lasts at least 3 to 4 days before I feel it is necessary to charge (as a precaution not to run out of battery). I used Pocket PC in the past; but, I did not get to like it and went right back to Palm OS.
