iSync and Nokia 9300 play together

Tuesday, May 22nd, 2007 @ 2:50 | technology

I’ve been brewing a disaster, running three separate calendars (Lightning on the MacBook, Basecamp on the web, mobile phone). I finally managed to combine them using the MacBook’s iSync with Nova Media’s cheap plugin (about 10€ + tax). When I stopped trying it the hard way and just paid for the plugin, I was up and running in less than five minutes. Recommended!

I don’t yet have experience on how it all hangs together in practice, but with the plugin I got iSync talking with the Nokia 9300, and iCal should be able to subscribe to Basecamp’s milestones. I think that I can also get Lightning to play with the iCal, but I’m not at all sure if I want to use it anyway… I always disliked the way Outlook put the email and the calendar in the same workspace, making it a pain to write email and check the calendar at the same time.

Ah, the relief. I was expecting disaster to hit at any time, trying to keep up with the three separate calendars. Phew.
