After hearing Rafe talk about Microsoft Live Sync a few times lately on the podcast when I was fortunate enough to finally have a decent laptop (new, not 3~4 years old when I receive) I set up the sync between my main desktop machine and the new laptop, I can now sync my MS Money, iTunes & Digital Pictures (overall about 100 GB) all seamlessly between them even to the point of syncing my iPod to either computer without any troubles from the notoriously fickle iTunes!

Keep up the great work, Peter from Brampton, ON

* Hey guys! I just got a chance to listen to your podcast about living with a Mac and a PC, and decided to give the Windows Live Sync a try. It works great, I love it, but there is a problem. I want to sync a smart folder, and the web interface that lets you choose the folders to sync does not recognize smart folders. Is there a workaround/am I missing something?

Keep up the great work, Dave the helicopter blade engineer
