Over the air syncing of iphone calendars and contacts

Hi to all!

It's been a loooong time since my last post. It's not that I was lacking interesting things to say, quite the contrary, but my job is keeping me very busy! Also, I have started studying for a certification in finance, which also takes a lot of time.

I will try to catch up with this post. First, I got the new Macbook Air, and it is awesome. I don't think I need to post pictures since it hasn't change since the Rev. A.
I knew it was very thin, but I am still amazed by how thin it is! It is really incredible! I have had lighter laptops though (the Toshiba R500 for instance...), but nothing as thin.
But, enough with the MBA, and on to the topic I want to address today: syncing one's contacts and calendar between your iphone and your mac/PC.
I have found a wonderful tool that allow such syncing: www.nuevasync.com.
Here are some thorough explanations:


Basically, it allows you to sync your iphone contacts over the air with google contacts and calendars. That's the first step.
If you want to sync your calendar with iCal, you need to follow a second step:


Following this guide will permit two-way sync between google calendars and iCal.
Finally, if you want to sync google contacts with address book, here it is:


Hence, your calendars are synced between your iphone, iCal and Google calendar.
Likewise, your contacts are synchronized between google contacts, your iphone and Address book (although this last part does not seem to be working for the moment...)

Well, that's all for today. I would really like to post something about Quicksilver, arguably the best MacOS app IMO. At first sight, this looks like a simple launcher, but it is actually much much more than that! It is more like a remote control for you Mac! Here is a primer:


'til next time!

Hey! I know this is somewhat off topic but I was wondering which blog
platform are you using for this website? I'm getting fed up of Wordpress because I've had
problems with hackers and I'm looking at options for another platform. I would be awesome if you could point me in the direction of a good platform.

Can I simply say what a relief to find a person that really understands what they are talking about on the internet.
You actually understand how to bring a problem to light and make it important.
A lot more people need to read this and understand this
side of the story. It's surprising you are not more popular because you most certainly possess the gift.
