Nemo Memo – Syncing’s not always a cinch

On October 20, 2010, in Apple, Features, iPhone, Macbook, Nemo Memo, by John Nemerovski

Guest report from occasional contributor Susan

A month or so ago, I noticed that my iPhone 3G was not updating when I made changes to either my Address Book or iCal on my one year old MacBook, so I made an appointment at my local Tucson Apple Store.
