My little brother is visiting me for a few days, and so he has kinda taken over my desktop, which results in me consuming less news and other information.
I spent the evening investigating solutions to sync my laptop and my desktop on multiple levels: email, bookmarks, IM, address book, music, etc. My ultimate goal is to basically operate on two machines but accessing one pool of data that is synced/managed via both machines. Overall I’ve found some nice solutions, and I’m positive I’ll get things working out to my satifisfaction. Apple’s robust support for Rendezvous makes syncing/sharing between the machines very elegant and easy. Also, the well implemented wireless connectivity via Airport is simply amazing. All I had to do was buy an Airport card for my tower, click a few times to share my internet connection, and then my tower acts as a basestation for my laptop. So, my laptop is completely wireless!
I need to name my laptop. My tower is Big One, and my iPod is Archie. Maybe this laptop will be Little One.
