Chapter 12. Advanced Entourage > Palm Synchronization

12.1. Palm Synchronization

For those who believe that organization is the key to life—those who believe if they can just get all those meetings, reports, and schedules into one, all-encompassing database—Entourage offers synchronization with Palm and its descendants (Handspring, Sony, and so on). For everyone else, there are notepads available at your local grocery store. But seriously folks, one of the most exciting aspects of Entourage is its ability to synchronize the information in its Categories, Address Book, Notes, Calendar, and Task modules with the Palm's corresponding programs, so that you can carry the Mac-based details of your life around in your pocket. Every time you make a change to this information, either on the handheld or Mac, the next HotSync (synchronization) session updates both machines so that they contain the identical information.

In fact, if you've decided to entrust your calendar, address book, and other databases to Entourage (instead of that grocery store notepad), you can safely retire Palm Desktop, the software that normally stores your Palm's data on the Mac.
