Excellent post. Check this out - Sam Allan

Does anyone have a better solution to manage contacts on iPhone instead of MobileMe? It seems like every free solution I've found uses Exchange, but I already use Exchange for my work email/contacts, and iPhone won't let you have more than one Exchange account...
I guess no one else has had this problem? I need a way to sync my Google Contacts/Calendar with iPhone. NuevaSync uses Exchange, GooSync isn't free, and i'm on WinXP, not a Mac. It seems I have no choice but to stick with MobileMe for $99. :( - Nathan Chase
I have a related question. I'm trying to import a bunch of contacts pulled from Outlook into Entourage so I can import them to my iPhone. But when I export them into a tab-delimited text file Entourage breaks up most of the records into two records, requiring a huge amount of manual labor to correct. It would almost be easier to retype them all into Entourage. Any ideas or suggestions? - Stephanie Vardavas
I can't imagine why Google wouldn't release their own tool that would sync Google Calendar & Google Contacts to the iPhone's Calendar & Contacts - and I can't believe NO ONE else has this as an issue - Nathan Chase
There are some awesome apps in the store for this very issue, and more are coming out all the time - Sam Allan
Sam, i looked and found nothing for Google sync - have any links? - Nathan Chase
GooSync is what they are talking about: - J Allen
@Globecode: except GooSync doesn't support iPhone - "A synchronisation application is not yet available for the Apple iPhone." - and it's Calendar-only... i'd like both Calendar and Contacts, if at all possible. - Nathan Chase
Not exactly true: Update: You can forget this post but you can do it with the premium GooSync, just not the free version. - J Allen
Take a look at this: works with any iPhone with 2.0 software - J Allen
@Globecode, I would use NuevaSync, but I already use Exchange for my work email, and the iPhone won't support multiple Exchange accounts... so I'm stuck. - Nathan Chase
yep i guess so, that is the price you pay with apple sometimes. - J Allen
how ironic that Apple would paint users into an MS Exchange Server (1 user) account model... weird. What about Gmail?! - Susan Beebe
@Susan, yeah Gmail's contacts are what I'm trying to sync with the iPhone contacts... but there's no way to do that that I can find... MobileMe just errors out every time if I try to sync to Google Contacts, and NeuvaSync uses Exchange, which I'm unable to take advantage of... so as of now, there's no solution - Nathan Chase

hm. I would love to structure audio thoughts with onenote but it's collected in internal format = not distributable to others w/o problem.
OneNote != OpenNote by any standard. Try EverNote perhaps..? - mjc
I second evernote. Excellent stuff - Sam Allan
tried it. hate it. unusable except probably for people who just want some snapshots or are satisfied to have f.e. biz cards as pics in there. no keyboard shortcut support for fast working, no usage of at least default basic operations, simple snapshot mechanism, clumsy desktop app. :) - Nicole Simon

I don't recall if I ever listed my favorite services in one post. The reason that I'm doing it now is because I feel something has changed from last year. The main change is my use of recommendation services such as: Digg, Stumbleupon and Reddit - services that I was so addicted to and somehow now are no longer my main interest. - Orli Yakuel from Bookmarklet
Orli - great list. Btw, i think that iLike is also a great service. - Ron Shoshani
I think so too, but those listed services, are my daily used ones... - Orli Yakuel is one of my top 10 sites! - paisano from twhirl
@paisano thanks :) - Orli Yakuel
I think moving all the apps off of users pages was a great idea, too many apps = clutter and wasted time. do you really want to see 3/4 of a fold worth of someone's favorite beer and hottest friend? - mjc
Michael, we're talking about Facebook right? so, the answer is no. and yes, I do remember how the profile pages looks like, but this solution is not good either. (and I'm sure the usage in Facebook apps drooped down because of that) - Orli Yakuel
Thanks, nice list! - Sam Allan
