Here is a simple article for the uninformed about common cloud services:
I know this is a deviation to this thread but it is part of this discussion about methods of syncronizing contact/calendar data with the PlayBook.

I will try to do better in the future My English is not the best I know.
Explain why I can sync my BB Torch with my Outlook PST file on my computer (and not worry about security) and why I cannot sync my Playbook with my Outlook PST file on my computer (and now I have to worry about security?).
I was talking about moving emails from the bb phone to the playbook. Do you sync your phone with your outlook by Cable? I did that with my PalmII I'm guessing that feature should be easy to incorporate, might be done in the pc software?

After a week of stewing about this issue of nice new calendar/contacts and how they are not integrated with my computer and my phone I am so glad I am not alone in my frustration and time spent. The gmail contact list tip did work though. I assume that if I was able to sync my computer calendar with gmail that would work too. I am going to try that. But WHY? And where is the the little trash can on the contact list so I can delete entries ?

"Explain why I can sync my BB Torch with my Outlook..."
Because... with the PB I can't and that's why even if they integrate all the mail and contact details I will still be using the Bridge to my phone!
hmm.... I am sure the people at RIM have heard about passwords; pretty sure they could implement that security feature.
99% of the people out there are not able to crack passwords... and, given the popularity of the device, I would bet that there are zero programs floating about that would crack the password protection on a playbook.
BTW, this is a distraction from the point of the thread, which was just to rant about there being two contact, calendar and email apps, instead of just one for each program. I am sure, if RIM wanted to spend the money on programming, they could have implemented the bridge as a datasource for the new and much improved calendar, contact and email apps. They chose not to because it cost them less $$ (my guess).
anyone at RIM care to refute?
