Chapter 9. Using iSync with .Mac > Understanding iSync

9.1. Understanding iSync

One way to look at the whole synchronization process is to assign generic terms to the process. Since your Mac will most likely be the place from which all of the synced data will originate, it can be considered the source. On the other hand, the device that you want to sync data with can be called the destination. It's kind of like the old math equation where you want to get from Point A to Point C, but first you need to go through Point B. In this case, the source (your Mac) is Point A, the destination (the device) is Point C, and in the middle, you have iSync (Point B) acting as a conduit to shuttle the data from here to there. Figure 9-1 illustrates this relationship.

Figure 9-1. The synchronization process is as simple as getting from Point A to Point C, with iSync in the middle as Point B.
