Actually, according to Now Sync's documentation, Now helped Apple write the
Macintosh part of the NCU syncing capabilities. So now you know why it
doesn't work on Macs. :-)

I must confess, that as long as I make sure to not modify a contact on both
machines, and as long as I don't sync todo's, and forget the idea of
syncing notes and email, that Now Sync works fine for me. You run into
trouble when you try to modify a contact on both the Newt and NowC.
Invariably, the Now Contact data is kept, and the Newton data is lost. I've
done this once or twice. Other than that, I find Now Sync to work fine.
Since I use Now Contact 3.6.5, I can't use NCU to sync, and this is my only
solution. (manually entering email addresses is a pain, I must admit)
