Apple has released a beta version of the iSync application it promised a few months ago. This allows Macintosh users to to transfer all the calendar information and the names, phone numbers, and email addresses in their Mac OS X Address Book to a Palm OS handheld, iPod, and a mobile phone. It works with Palm and Handspring handhelds but not ones from Sony. The phone needs to be a Bluetooth enabled one from Sony Ericsson. iSync requires Mac OS X v.10.2.1.
According to Mini2, a website dedicated to the BMW MINI, owners of the 2003 models will be able to integrate an iPaq into their little car. The iPaq will be held in a bracket on the car’s dashboard and can wirelessly connect to the Internet to provide the driver with navigation, traffic news, text messages, e-mail, an address book, news, entertainment information, links to emergency services, and weather.
PalmSource has stopped taking new subscribers to its WeSync service. The service will not be discontinued for current subscribers but the company will soon stop offering technical support. WeSync allowed users to share, sync, and wirelessly refresh their calendars and contacts through the Internet-based WeSync Server.
