Open-Xchange, which makes an e-mail and document server, has added support for some Apple applications due to increased demand, the company said Tuesday.

Open-Xchange announced a beta version of its iSync connector OXtender for Mac OS X. The connector integrates Apple applications such as Mail, iCal and Address Book with version 6 of their server, according to Open-Xchange.

Apple computers are increasingly popular at home and in the office, which prompted the company to add support, according to Rafael Laguna, Open-Xchange's CEO.

OXtender for Mac OS X can synchronize contacts between Open-Xchange and the Apple Address Book, as well as appointments and tasks with iCal. Open-Xchange's document manager, InfoStore, can also be linked Apple Finder using WebDAV.

Open-Xchange plans to eventually add automatic configuration of Apple's Mail Client for access to Open-Xchange's Mail Services, but that feature isn't in the current beta.

The connector also adds synchronization support for iPhones that are connected to a Mac. Users of MobileMe will get new e-mail, calendar and contact entries pushed directly to their iPhone.

Other mobile devices can also get access to, for example, e-mail via a Mac, as long as they support iSync.

The beta can be downloaded from the Open-Xchange Web site.

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

LIFEBOOK UH574

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

STYLISTIC Q702

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

STYLISTIC Q702

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
