Maybe you're right. I know that it took me three days to find a calendar I didn't hate - Pimlical - and I ended up paying $25 for the combo of desktop app and Android device app. But once I paid that, now everything syncs to everything, no matter what platform I enter the data onto. That said, I still object to having to pay extra for functionality that I used to get as part of the basic OS.

And contacts sync still sucks donkey pee, even after tweaking the .vcf, editing out the "custom" fields that were so convenient in Palm but don't exist in any other platform, editing out command language in the custom fields that would stop the export ... seriously, just the hand editing was a three hour project. Alas, Pimlical picked up my contacts from Palm but has no autosync function as it does for calendar.

I don't know. Using the Treo was intuitive, convenient, and did not have a dreadful steep learning curve to get it up and running, and if they'd managed their brand better it would still be supported and I would still be using it. Can I be blamed for feeling like I just traded in my trusty old Apple II for a Windows XP?
