Take Control of Syncing Data in Snow Leopard
Learn how to sync your data with another Mac, iPhone, iPod, mobile phone, or PDA!
Is this ebook up-to-date? Excellent question. If you want to understand how syncing works conceptually or sync a non-Apple smartphone, or sync between your Mac(s) and MobileMe, this ebook remains pretty much spot on—though now that MobileMe has been discontinued, some of that content remains spot on as a history lesson, not as a practical instruction manual. However, since this ebook was updated in late 2009, Apple has released the iPad, iOS 4 (and iOS 5 and iOS 6...), and iTunes 10. Also, Apple made some changes to the Apple TV situation.

With clear directions and a humorous touch, expert Michael Cohen walks you through exactly how to sync managed data from a Mac running Mac OS X 10.6 Snow Leopard with a variety of devices and services. Whether you want to sync phone numbers between your Mac and your mobile phone, share calendars and keychains between Macs, or move only new podcast episodes to an iPod, you'll find useful advice and directions. ("Managed data" is data that you can't usually see as separate files in the Finder—data such as iCal events, Address Book contacts, Safari bookmarks, and anything you store in iTunes.)
You'll also learn how syncing works under the hood and get troubleshooting advice in case your sync engine throws a rod.
