File under "comings". Google's Exchange ActiveSync option
now works with all Palm OS smartphones that provide EAS support: the Treos 680, 700p, 755p and the Centro. If you haven't tried this before and are looking to get some webOS-style Synergy happening on your Palm OS device, setting up is simplicity itself. We've posted instructions after the break. Two caveats: email attachments don't download (but Google are working on it). More annoyingly, though, is that Google Calendar sync will wipe out any custom categories you might have set up for events on your Palm OS calendar. Boo!
File under "goings": GooSync, the third-party Palm OS Google syncing service, have announced that they are discontinuing the Free version of their software as of Monday, 19th October 2009. Although the free edition only synced calendars, it must still be a sad day for users. But hey - who needs it now? (If you're answering with a plaintive "me!", you can upgrade to the Premium version for a minimum of $19.95 annually.)
