limit as to how much—or how little—of your music to sync.

There are two things that should really be put forward in this post.
First, this is not a final candidate of Media Sync, but a "Preview Version". In other words, I'm assuming it's Beta.
Second, the following cannot be stated clearly enough: "After installing the Preview Version of BlackBerry® Media Sync, other software previously used to synchronize data with your Mac®, such as PocketMac® for BlackBerry® devices or Missing Sync, will no longer be able to connect to your device and will not work until BlackBerry® Media Sync is uninstalled."
I like Media Sync. It works with my Bold and I can import my iTunes playlists. What I don't understand is why it would, by its installation, nullify other applications like PocketMac which are just as important (if not much, much more). What's the point if installing one cancels-out the other? Is this being corrected? What is BlackBerry/RIM's development timeline on this software (ie. when can we expect a finished version which works with other applications)?

I am a new BB user; test-driving for 30 days on Verizon Wireless.
PocketMac has too many bugs
Reconcile Now (IMAP) for Gmail is unreliable
Here's my point: I wanted the curve to work for me, before switching to AT&T for the iPhone. But RIM simply does NOT have the software friendliness for Macintosh users.
I prefer the CDMA service on Verizon, and I highly respect RIM for delivering exceptional products. If/when they are ready to get serious about Mac users, I will return.
