    1st of all, it's a shortcoming of the bberry-my treo 650 couldn't natively handle isync, either. But, to be honest, I have never been a huge fan of my mac's calendar and contacts aps-have you looked at entourage instead?

    Last time I checked, it was the RIM BlackBerry, not the Apple BlackBerry.

    Put the blame where it is due!

    That a BlackBerry doesn't play well with a Mac is RIM's fault entirely, and has nothing to do with Apple.

    Yes it is RIMs decision about supporting the Apple, but it is a business based decision. It has to do with market penetration and where best to deploy their limited assets in supporting a new device. And it is partly Apple's fault as they were the ones that limited access to their OS, APIs and low level device definitions back in the day, therefore limiting their market penetration. This has changed some what now, but the problem of deploying development assets is still there.

    Just my $0.03 worth.

    Who cares who's fault is it? Can't a third-party comes up with something?
    (After all, the Treo field is littered with 3rd-party apps, including sync and desktop ones.)
