    The best ways to connect your smart phone to the Mac

    The e-mail–focused BlackBerry, by Research in Motion (RIM), inaugurated the smart-phone category and is still largely regarded as a must-have accessory in corporate and government realms. Its Mac support is fairly limited, but e-mail junkies (and people whose jobs require them to be available at all times) can convince a BlackBerry to sync with their Macs.

    The BlackBerry’s dominance in the corporate world is largely a result of its e-mail-centric approach. The BlackBerry introduced the concept of push e-mail, an innovation that has now spread to most other smart phones.
