Warning: new MacBooks & BlackBerry 19 Nov, 2008
I nipped over to the Mark/Space support site for some assistance with sync’ing my BlackBerry Pearl, and found this wee gem:
In our testing, we have confirmed that the MacBook and MacBook Pro (Aluminum/Unibody, Late 2008) models are currently unable to sync data using the Missing Sync software. While we are unable to offer a work-around or solution at this time, we anticipate having one in the near future.
Great; “near future”: is that like the software upgrades Mark/Space regularly come out with?</sarcasm>
BlackBerry device support on OS X really is stellar: first, we have no reliable way of installing / updating BlackBerry software, second no-one makes a Bluetooth solution and now this. Bah. Anyway, if you’re in a similar position to me, be warned. I would link to the Mark/Space knowledgebase article, but they don’t offer permalinks.
Update this affects PocketMac too. They have published a more useful knowledgebase to track the issue.
Update USB driver updates have been released. Download them here.
