    Without MobileMe, and using gmail, is there anyway I can have Mail on OS X, Mail on iPhone and Gmail on web stay "in sync"? As in, I read an email on iPhone, gmail and Mail on OS X mark it as read.

    Can I do this somehow? It's sort of annoying.

    Yes, you need to setup your GMail accounts using the IMAP protocol rather than the POP3 protocol.
