I got my Bluetooth adaptor and my T68i and am delighted with the results, although a bit frustrated that I have to use iCal instead of Palm Desktop.

I know I saw somewhere a USB IR adaptor, somewhat similar to the D-Link Bluetooth thingie and just wondered whether I could use along with such devices as my phone, my Palm, etc.

I checked the Palm help section and it said that IR hotsync was indeed possible but not with OS X. I'm sure I've seen/heard that this is no longer true and that it is absolutely possible with 10.2.

Anybody care to shed some light on this and tell me whether it is now possible and, if so, how? If you've got a USB infra red adaptor, was it easy to set up and use?

Thanks. I really appreciate the feedback.

I *swear* i saw a USB IR adapter in dixons on the packaging of which was the blue os X logo.

I can't find it again in the same shop though - and I can't find anything on Google.

Thank you both very much for your feedback/advice. I am planning to order from the German outfit. Will let you know if I am successful!

Thanks again.
