  1. What comes to support for Nokia’s Series 60 phones, Apple hasn’t been too keen on updating the list. It’s great to see that they’re finally supporting the 6680, 6681 and 6682!

  2. Snooze. I was hoping for this update to fix iSync and the limited features with Symbian based phones. I have a Nokia 6620. It’s a great phone and it does sync contacts…but not nearly as full featured as with a SE T637. The Sony would work perfectly with the address book and show who was calling and you could also dial through the address book to the phone. Small things, yeah, but cool nonetheless.

    Come on Apple, Symbian OS is on many, many phones. Is FULL support coming anytime soon?

  3. They should make the iSync update part of the OS X update. Too many updates trickling in, I don’t care if it’s every two months, just make one update that provides all the current improvements/bug fixes for everything that’s packaged with OS X. I’m not going to reset my computer just for some rinky dink iSync update. OK, so I don’t have a top of the line cell phone….

    with that said, this maybe foreshadowing an iminent 10.4.2 release…

  4. Question:

    I haven’t had any time lately to scrounge around on how to do this, but…

    Is there any way to remove an update from Software Update? In my case: I used the iWork demo that came with Tiger, and it expired in 30 days (as in, it has already expired). With dial-up, a nearly 50 MB combined update to Pages and Keynote seems useless and time-consuming now.

    How can I remove them from the list?

  5. Alright, alright… I know I just posted, but I just caught this…

    On <a >Paul Thurrott’s Internet Nexus</a>, one earlier articles of the day reads: “PalmOS Is Dead”.

    Then another headline (on the exact same day, no less) reads:

    “iSync Update 2.1”

    iSync 2.1 for Mac OS X Tiger synchronizes compatible applications in Tiger including Address Book and iCal calendar and your iSync compatible mobile phone or Palm OS device.

    Funny guy.

  6. Still got this moronic new way of setting up syncing in multiple locations and having to keep iSync open at all times.

    Tiger and syncing is a major step backwards…

  7. For those asking for 10.4.2 should remember that it will be 18 months until 10.5. Don’t expect 10.4.x updates as often as we have seen them in the past
