I've had both (Mac & Blackberry) for years now and no problems. As a matter of fact I've been syncing between my Mac and Win machines for years. Nice to see RIM coming out with proper software though. It's about bloody time.

EDIT- I don't know what it might have over Missing Sync, although on the Storm, Missing Sync requires an app to be running all the time (using proc cycles and battery power) in order to sync, not cool. So on second thought, this will be worth a look.

No, they blocked devices from pretending to be iPods to appear in iTunes. The iTunes Library is an open XML file that any developer can access.

LOL! That's hilarious. The mac fanboys finally get to use Blackberry's (unless they worked at a company with a BES box ).

Pssh, if you knew anything, you'd know that Mac fanboys wouldn't be caught dead with anything other than an iPhone 3Gs.

(sarcasm, obviously)

Er.. what's the hilarious bit exactly?

Anytime someone starts the sentence with LOL, it is best to just stop reading there. You know nothing good is going to come of any more words from that guy.
