Sync Your BlackBerry to Your Mac

Mac users don’t have to watch BlackBerry users from afar; they can also join thumbs with the rest of the world by using software to keep their Mac and BlackBerry in sync.

The BlackBerry’s software is clearly focused on the Microsoft Windows desktop components and infrastructure: the only software that RIM supplies for synchronization, firmware updates, and application loading requires Windows. Mac users aren’t left entirely in the cold, however, thanks to some ingenious software from PocketMac (http://www.pocketmac.net/), called PocketMac for BlackBerry. While you will not (at the time of this writing) be able to update the firmware of the BlackBerry or install packages that require the use of the Application Loader, you can happily sync your BlackBerry to a variety of PIM for the Mac, including DayLite, iCal and Address Book, and Microsoft Entourage.
