Mark/Space has introduced an update to The Missing Sync for Android. Version 1.3 adds the ability to sync a PC or Mac with an Android handset without using a cable.

The update also offers notes syncing, as the company's Fliq Notes app is now available for the Android platform.
Mark/Space on Thursday launched both the Mac and PC version of The Missing Sync for Android. The app utilizes Wi-Fi to sync contacts between a computer and Android-based handsets such as the myTouch 3G, HTC Hero or Motorola Cliq. It works with popular applications such as Microsoft Outlook or Address Book, and can automatically sync whenever the computer comes within range of the handset.
Owners of Palm's newer phones have encountered a flaw in its online backup system that has wiped out contacts and calendars. A portion of users note that backups sent to Palm's Profile cloud service from a Pre (and now Pixi) are being corrupted and blank out any synchronized data when the phone has to be reset or restored. Those without a local backup, such as through an app like Missing Sync, have no choice but to recreate the data from scratch.
Mark/Space has launched an update to its iPhone sync software, The Missing Sync for iPhone 2.0.3. The update adds the ability to create ringtones for the iPhone by using a built-in ringtone editor.

The kit mentions some of the advantages of an all-digital headset or headphone connector, including higher-bitrate support, a more customizable experience, and support for power and data transfer into headphone hardware. Several companies already make Lightning headphones, and Apple has supported the concept since June 2014. http://bit.ly/29giiZj

Apple employees testing wheelchair features
New features included in the forthcoming watchOS 3 are being tested by Apple retail store employees, including a new activity-tracking feature that has been designed with wheelchair users in mind. The move is slightly unusual in that, while retail employees have previously been used to test pre-release versions of OS X and iOS, this marks the first time they've been included in the otherwise developer-only watchOS betas. The company is said to have gone to great lengths to modify the activity tracker for wheelchair users, including changing the "time to stand" notification to "time to roll" and including two wheelchair-centric workout apps. http://bit.ly/2955JDa
