Sync up with the all-new Plaxo

Version 3 of Plaxo can sync your contacts and calendars across multiple platforms -- Mac and Windows apps (Outlook, iCal, Thunderbird, etc.) and web (Google, Yahoo!, AOL, etc.), oh, plus your mobile phone. Dang.

On top of that, it will sync changes when you or one of your contacts updates contact info. And notify you of upcoming events, like birthdays. Plus, it has a nice web interface so you can access it from other computers.

And if that's not enough, the Pulse add-on consolidates your feeds from various social networks (MySpace, Twitter, Flickr, Digg, etc.). Watch this short video for a quick demo.

Yeah, it's sick. I think I'll have to try it out.



  1. Yeah, that is sick. The video is quick to show you its power. Has this totally replaced your syncing with .Mac?

  2. Not yet. I haven't installed Plaxo at the office yet, so I'm still using .Mac sync there. One of them caused a few of my iCal calendars to duplicate all of their events on the home machine the other day, so I'm still trying to sort that one out. With all the trouble I've had with .Mac sync in the past, I wouldn't be surprised if it had nothing to do with Plaxo.
