Sam, What Mac are you running? The recent update to 10.4.9 supposedly has some Sync Services updates.
*The easy way is if you have an Intel Mac and can boot into Windows. Then your supplied CD becomes useful.
*The way that Just Works(tm) is still a work in progress from all I've been reading and working. The crucial thing is to backup your iCal and Address Book prior to doing anything with these 3rd party apps. Choose your 3rd-party app and work slowly, reviewing syncs for deltas. The most changes I see are in Categories and Tasks. If you don't use those then your work is easier.
The cool thing I'm finding about the BB is that we have a paradigm shift (ugh, sorry) from sorting by category to finding things by search. And the 8100 is search oriented. You may not need categories or tasks. The BB is a search-driven device. Start typing and your contacts will rise to the top of the list.
*Buy a 1 GB microSD card from newegg for $12. I can't get my Mac to recognize the internal memory. The external memory seems to make for a happier BB/Mac sync.
After all that, check out the Yojimbo product from the Barebones software folks. Yojimbo will sync well with the BB and make for a nice PIM manager on your Mac. Yeah, it's a bit pricey for a 1.0 release but check it out. It, too, is search based rather than directory oriented.
