Yes, iSync has been with us for few years now. It should be rock solid. It’s not — yet. I recently wrote about my impressions of data detectors. Not rocket science, but a small and powerful addition to useful workflow on a Mac. That they also remind me of the promise that was the Newton makes them all the more welcome. But what can I say about iSync? One of the things that makes OSX such a compelling choice for day to day computing is the consistency of interface between applications and their ability to share information…not just data, but contexts and preferences and thus recognition and adaptability to user peculiarities that anthropomophise the laptop. The computer becomes somehow just something a little more. A trusted companion — not merely a clone of millions of other identical collections of aluminum, silicon and other substances.
