Hey all. Have spent a good chunk of the weekend going Microsoft-free. I bought a MacBook Pro a couple of weeks ago and have been slowly jettisoning MS products. Here's what I'm currently running:
-Blackberry 8703e on Verizon
-GMail for e-mail and contacts (use hosted e-mail through Google Apps)
-Google Calendar (I love that I can SMS events to my calendar!)
-GooToDo for my GTD/to-do lists (I love being able to e-mail myself a to-do item)
For the most part I'm loving this set-up and it is helping to free me up from my desktop which I dig. Just a couple questions though:
#1 - Synching GMail contacts and Google calendar to Blackberry - Any suggestions here? UI is the big issue here as I can get to my GContacts and GCal through my BB but the interface is bad. I love the BB interface. Synching would be hot but I'm not sure how to best do this. Suggestions?
#2 - Access non-gmail.com domains through the GMail app - I realize this is more a GMail question than a Blackberry question but I'm guessing others are probably having problems here too. I'm going to send off an e-mail to GSupport but if anyone has any suggestions for how I can do this I would appreciate them.
A few more bumps to iron out here and I think I should be 100% Microsoft-free for the first time in my life.
