Hi all, I have a Macbook (switched from Windows on Oct 08) and never looked back, even though I have an XP partition for some apps. not available for Mac. For my portable Calendar, Contacts and WiFi (not very strong)I use a 5 year old Palm TX that is serving me well. Some third party apps. are installed as well. (Pdf reader, Documents To Go - Word/Excel, Passwords Manager, etc.) For music purposes, I have an 8 Gb Sony Walkman with noise canceling headphones, which sounds wonderful. I DON'T play games, watch videos, etc. with my Palm. (No need to) One of the things I don't like about the Palm is the GUI which I like from the Touch, plus, To Sync Calendar / Contacts, etc. on my Palm, I have to do it with the archaic Palm Desktop or Export a VCal file and import it on iCal. Bottom line: I would like to go Apple but there's not too much info on Apple's website about the "everyday" apps. that I'm interested in the most: Calendar /Contacts/To Do's/Memos with "reliable" alarms (are they loud?) and how are they synch'd with iCal, Address Book on my Macbook. Also, can I just create (on the road) a Calendar event, assign an alarm to it, etc..(Same goes for a contact) Can the Touch read Pdf files? How do I put them inside the Touch's memory? Can the Touch read Word docs? Does it have a Text Edit or similar to "type" a note, ie, groceries list or whatever? Does it have Bluetooth? Does it have a "Note taking" app? Sorry for so many questions. Thanks in advance.
