Many of our gentle readers know that I adore my T-Mobile Sidekick (also known, hardware-wise, as the Danger Hiptop). Despite the Sidekick being in the news lately primarily due to Paris Hilton’s Sidekick being hacked, it is a wonderful little device, providing always-on email, AOL Instant Messenger, web browsing, and lots of other goodies, wherever you are. It would be unfair to call it the poor-person’s Blackberry, because in many ways it’s much better than the Blackberry, but it is in fact half the price.

(Actually right now Amazon is paying people to take them, but more about that in a minute.)


The one thing which the Sidekick had against it was that it was not possible to sync it with a Mac. That had a lot of Sidekick-owning Mac heads really unhappy.

Well, the good people at Mark/Space have finally released their long-awaited software program, Missing Sync for Hiptop, which allows people to sync their Sidekick with their Mac. Hooray!

According to the Mark/Space site, “The Missing Sync for hiptop synchronizes your contacts, calendar events and to-dos between your T-Mobile Sidekick and Mac OS X’s Address Book and iCal applications. The Missing Sync uses Apple’s iSync technology to synchronize your data with the T-Mobile Sidekick’s Web-based Desktop Interface. Any changes are then transmitted right over-the-air to your Sidekick. Very cool.”

Very cool indeed!

And if you don’t have a Sidekick yet, well, you really should. And right now you can get one for -$50.00 (you read that right, you make $50.00 on the deal!) after rebates from Amazon.
