I use Blunt <>, a PICO Card, and IC/VC
<> to manually export Names and Dates
entries as vCard & iCal files, respectively, and send them to my
MacBook Air via Bluetooth. Then it's just a matter of double clicking
the resulting vCard/iCal files to have Address Book/iCal add them, but
it does mean that I have to keep track of what is updated where and
merge them manually (at least for calendar entries going into iCal).
My Newton is my master calendar, so it's pretty easy there, but my
Names entries could go either way.

I think until NCX gets its sync functionality completed or until
someone uses Eckhart Köppen's RDCL <> to
make a new sync utility.
