Handheld computers have been in a pitched battle to defend their turf from new breeds of mobile phones that have been relentlessly poaching palmtop functionality. Now handheld makers have to face a new threat -- a rear guard action from Apple Computer and its indomitable iPod. Apple recently raised the curtain on a new version of its free music management software for Windows, iTunes 5, and buried among the application's new bells and whistles for searching, shuffling and organizing songs is a feature for synchronizing contacts and calendar items from Microsoft Outlook programs.

This is a much needed improvement since there is no way to directly input an event in the calendar of an iPod. The iTunes software on the PC allowed it, but who wants to have to manage another calendar?
I found a Web to Outlook to iPod technology that allows Football Schedules, events listed on whatsonwhen, weather, itineraries to be clicked into Outlook. Infuzer (http://www.infuzer.com) also works with Palm and Lotus.
Also some guy has developed a Palm Datebook to iPod sync program called PalmPod 1.x at http://sapennin.com
