Both of them work together. You install the Palm software, then you download the iSync Palm Conduit from Apple. After this, when you use HotSync, it automatically starts up iSync and syncs your Palm with iCal, Address Book, etc.

Ticking sound coming from a .pkg package? Don't let the .bom go off! Inspect it first with Pacifist. Macworld - five mice!

Palm Desktop has been discontinued for Mac and according to Palm we're supposed to rely on third parties from this point on. Uh huh.
