Forwarding Address: OS X

Wednesday, February 11, 2004

From the Some-News-Is-Bad-News Dept.: According to, Palm (or Pa1mOne if you prefer) is dropping support for the Mac. Palm Desktop has been atrophying for long enough that many people (including me) have switched over to iCal and Address Book, but that's not enough -- unless I'm missing something, there is now no plan for a general conduit architecture that runs on the Mac and works with PalmOS 6 ("Cobalt"). iSync is dandy but it depends on the current Palm HotSync software to function. The Missing Sync is promised to work with PalmOS 6, but having to spend an extra $40 on an intrinsic function like sync is somewhat galling. Here's hoping Apple picks up the slack, or Palm changes their minds. Discuss
