so the "idea" of these new fancy "android" based fons is that you don't
"sync" anything on the fon to anything on your desktop. rather you sync
it to google and then it all gets handled.
infact for a quite a while i tried *not* syncing my stuff back to google
and found the fon to be a bit crippling.
there are plenty of third party calendar apps in the market, but none is
as powerful as the one i've seen in the ipad so they're a bit shit.
as far as tethering is concerned you should root your fon asap so you
can install the fantastic root tether for wifi users OR you can wait for
the new froyo (all android releases are named after deserts) which will
have built in tethering. the best part of this tethering? the fon
becomes a std 802.11b adhoc AP. everything and anything should be able
