“How does an ordinary mortal take advantage of the kind of networks we have now? Answer: download iSync 1.5, install it on your Mac, and prepare to know all about your work, social and family schedules, wherever you happen to be,” Garry Barker writes for The Sydney Morning Herald.
“Surprisingly, many Mac users have yet to employ iSync to the full extent of its power, or even use it at all. Electronic Xanadu awaits them.
