Syncing a PDA, an iPod, or a Phone with Your Mac

If you use an iPhone, a Palm, or another device that can interact with your Mac, you’re definitely going to want to sync that device with iCal and Address Book. The procedure is a bit different for Palms than it is for other devices, but in either case it takes only a few steps. Here’s how to get started.
