Summary: Here’s an app that will let you read an Apple Pages document on an Android phone.
This may be one of the ugliest icons that you’ve seen on your Macintosh computer but this is a powerful little app. It synchronises your Apple Contacts (from iCloud) with your Google contacts. Â This means that any contacts or groups you create in Gmail or on an Android device are available on your iPhone and OSX and iCloud, and vice versa.
I just purchased this Alcatel phone. It’s a bit of a dud, I wouldn’t recommend it, but if you do end up with one, here’s how Â to copy Â contacts across from the OSX address book. I assume this will work on any mobile phone.
So you have two computers, one at work and one at home, and perhaps an iPhone or iPad as well, Â and you want the same contacts to be available to all of them. Â The easiest way Â to synchronise all your Address Book contacts is to use iCloud. If you make a contact or edit a contact in one of your computers, it is available almost instantly to all your other computers. Â If you have an Android phone Â read this article instead.
When you have more than one computer and more than one iPhone or iPod there are various ways to sync your iTunes songs across all your devices. Â This article outlines them all.
If you have ever designed a colour document on your computer and then printed it out on your inkjet or laser printer you may have noticed that the colours come out slightly different.

Â This article gives you some tips on basic monitor colour calibration.
iDisk was Apple’s online disk space that you get automatically if you sign up for MobileMe. It has been discontinued. The easiest replacement is probably dropbox. (Note: there’s now a better way using Apple Message that I describe here.)
