Chapter 16. Going Wireless > Real-Time Versus Synched

Real-Time Versus Synched

With real-time wireless access, you are connected to the Internet wirelessly, live. That is, if you compose an email on the device you're using and send it, it goes, immediately. New emails pop into your Inbox all the time. When you check the baseball scores, they are up-to-date.

Synchronized connectivity is what many people do with their handheld PDAs. Palm devices, Handspring Visors, and Pocket PCs all allow this type of connecting. Using a provider such as AvantGo (a free service), you determine which sites you want to check in on when you connect. Then, when you synchronize your PDA with your computer, it will pull down the latest data from the Internet and load it into the PDA.
