And when I said that "The Palm HotSync should have been the model to follow", I did not mean that to be limited to a single hard-wired PC. That sync could could be to anywhere; another PC, local storage network, or the cloud via USB, Bluetooth, or WiFi. (I'm currently experimenting with CompanionLink via WiFi for Outlook) I care less about where that sync goes to; I'd just like to be able to do it!
The model I was speaking of was the Palm's ability to intelligently sync everything on the device; data, applications, and settings. Totally resetting a device did not imply hours of reloading apps, data, and then tweaking your settings back to the way you wanted them. The very few times I had to "hard reset" my Palm devices, restoration took only a few minutes.
