PocketMac update supports Entourage and iTunes


AppleMac users rejoice! Entourage 2008, designed to emulate much of Microsoft Office, can now support syncing for BlackBerrys released as of May through PocketMac. Devices running OS 4.5 reportedly work like a charm for getting contacts, tasks, and calendar items off your Mac and onto your BlackBerry via Entourage. iTunes support is also in there, although it’s kind of funny that PC users got the iTunes Media Sync first. This is pretty awesome for Mac users everywhere, considering the complete lack of love they tend to get from RIM. Hopefully this will keep enough of them from going with the iPhone instead… Hey, you can always make your BlackBerry look like an iPhone with themes like iBerry in Today, Icon and Zen styles. Head on over to the PocketMac site to download version 4.1.25.

BlackBerry syncing dropped from Entourage 2008


Microsoft’s Entourage, which is basically Outlook for Macs, is in for a bumpy ride with their 2008 iteration. Not only has direct syncing with BlackBerrys been disabled in Entourage 2008, but so has plug-in support which allowed apps like The Missing Sync to do the job. Now come on, Mac users have enough trouble getting BlackBerrys to work with their system, shouldn’t Microsoft be showing some love? Well, maybe not, it IS Apple we’re talking about, but it’s still too bad BlackBerry’s getting caught in the crossfire.
