Push it real good

A few days ago Google finally enabled push email for iPhones via Google Sync. I was already using it to push my contacts and calendar across, but had to fall back to IMAP for mail. After a few false starts where I couldn’t get push email working at all, and temporarily losing all my contacts and calendar in the process, it’s now pushing mail across to my phone almost instantly.

All in all it’s a fairly pointless exercise given that I read all my email through mutt and an SSH session, but it’s a nice geeky thing to set up and play with.

    iphones are too expensive. They should be free on any network & price tariff :)

    Expensive, but good.

    Well yeah, they’re clearly good. I’ll have to make do with my free phone though.

    I remember my first mobile. It was the size of a brick attached to a 4 inch thick laptop! But it did make phone-calls – sometimes!!
