Many thanks indeed, you have all been a great help. Mac OSX is great but they dont' seem big on PDA's! (I still have a Dell if I feel drawn back to the darkside!) - I will get Missing Synch - Filip great review by the way, it was way more helpful than the sales blurb on their website. I cant believe that even iTunes works!!
Another question, Filip - when you carry your 3870 outside during winter then come inside to use it - do you let it come up to room temperature for say 15 mins or just switch on - I spend half my time in the French Pyrenees (not as cold as Finland I know) and found last year that mine didn't enjoy working whilst cold - it would switch back off. Does the constant in/out hot/cold cause condensation somewhere inside the circuit boards?
Thanks again for the great info!
