iLife on iPhone = iSync on Steroids (iSoS).

Hi you2 ... I saw a recent article that hinted about new iLife w iSync functionality ... perhaps also "Windows compatible" for iPhone
http://blog.wired.com/cultofmac/2007/01/isync_on_steroi.html#more

Excerpt - .... That's where an unreleased piece of iLife comes in: Let's call it iSync on Steroids (iSoS). Imagine a single, lightweight application focused solely on data transfers and media previews. As you initiate a sync, it detects all the new data on your phone and launches transfer-only versions of the iLife apps needed to work with them. All your podcasts get instantly loaded. Your photos are imported, sorted and posted to your website. Just hit OK and watch it go. In the meantime, click on the pull-down tab to pop up your iTunes library browser, find the albums and playlists you want and pull them in. Et voila. The iPhone is now the ultimate portable media and communication device. A bit more useful than an iPod that makes phone calls, isn't it? Here's the scary thing: It has to be available for Windows, too.:p

Any device Apple builds is just another phone without that critical syncing application. But with it, they have the power to freak out and challenge Motorola, Research in Motion, Palm, everybody. Whether it's Tuesday or two years, this is the key to Apple moving beyond the iPod. Just wait and see.:cool:

What device do you want to sync to Windows, and with which apps/data?

If you're talking about a Palm or WM device, they come with synchronization software and a bunch of conduits to get your data to/from the device. You can also check out MarkSpace's Missing Sync solutions (which I can personally vouch for with my MacBook Pro and Treo 650).

If you're talking about the iPhone, everything's still speculative. Steve did say it'll be Windows compatible, so I'd assume there's at least iTunes synchronization. We'll see about contacts. Unless there's a Windows version of iPhoto in the pipeline (not inconceivable) then you'll have to bite the bullet and buy a better computer. *cough*Mac*cough*

Good day to us all,

:laugh2: I will be going back to school for some more graduate studies (second post graduate degree) and I was debating whether or not to stay with my Windows or finally make the jump to Mac. All of my software is for MS, but I heard that Mac is probably easier to use in an academic setting. Don't know how true that is, so I guess I will find out when I start in May. It would definitely make things easier in terms of compatibility, I am sure, wrt iPhone if I were to "bite the bullet" and get that Mac after all... but then, what to do with all of my Windows applications? LOL ;)

Oh yeah, it's a whole new ball game. My treo 650 only has 32 megs of memory, much of which is dedicated to the Palm OS. The original palm company, HandSpring was built by a couple of Mac types that left Apple and started their own company using the origianal mac PIM they bought from Apple. Palm was bought by a company whose intention was to move towards the Windoze arena and now they are in trouble if they don't come up with something better or cheaper. The key is Apple has successfuly moved from the mac base to Windoze with it's iPod & iTunes combination.
Go to Apple.com and check out the keynote address for iPhone. Mr. Jobs fiddles around the subject for a while but finally gets to it.

is the madtv mock of his serious approach.

Good day to us all,

Thanks.... I didn't realize that Macs can use Windows applications. Definitely, when I get to school and look at laptops, I will take this information in mind. I would think, though, that if it is running both platforms, that would require major RAM and stuff, eh?
Oh yeah!, number two. However they still can't protect you from the hacks and virii that abound for microsoft apps. Keep your Virus program updated.

Windows syncing

you2... When I used Windows and had a pocketpc there was ActiveSync which is like iSync, but I believe it only syncs window's mobile devices; it was buggy at times too. Gawd, I syncing the iPhone through iTunes will be cool. Ergonomics!:laugh2:
