Man this is so ridiculous. We all have RIM to thank for this.... (LOL) ... I guess a halfway decent solution is better than nothing, but on the other hand, do we reaaaaally want to send our personal data to some server in Sweden? If I can sync up to a server in Sweden, why can't I sync up to my PC that's sitting right in front of my grape... ??? (LOL) =^) Is this asking too much??? =^) But again, I'm glad that there is something out there for those of us who have left the Matrix.
I just wrote in the 8800 review thread that I love my BB, but I LOVE MY LINUX MORE!!! =^) As soon as someone develops a device that will play nice with my "x" boxes, I'M GONE!!! RIM makes a great device... no question about it, but like rivviepop, said, phones come, and phones go. I've been keeping an eye on the openmoko project. Check it out, if you haven't already, I think you will find it quite interesting.
