Bookmark syncing, music syncing, photo syncing - 08-17-2009, 12:35 PM
A lot of us are run multiple OS's and even more of us have multiple computers so we have a lot of things that we would like to keep in sync between these machines.
I personally have a Macbook running OS X and my mini 10v running winxp and ubuntu. I also have a dedicated home sized NAS on order.
I've just now started looking into this and I've found Syncplaces (SyncPlaces Firefox Extension) to be pretty good for bookmark syncing. It basically checks if you have the latest bookmarks on browser startup and forwards any changes you've made when you close the browser. The cool part is you store it on any ftp server you have access to. So I store mine on my 1and1 hosting (So I can sync bookmarks from anywhere).
Music and photos:
-The music and photos I'd only like to do selectively sync to the mini.
-I'd also like them to be stored locally on my NAS and not on the web like the bookmarks.
-Everything is currently stored in itunes/iphoto.
-I don't want an itunes library on the NAS, I'd like to bring the music with me on the laptop(s).
-I'll do all my iphone syncing and most of my photo management on the macbook.
-How is songbird on ubuntu for this (I'll keep itunes on the xp part for a handful of songs I have with apple licenses...ugh. I'll also probably keep my tunes on the NTFS partition because ubuntu can mount and read it.)?
-Should I abandon iphoto and go with something else to manage my photos?
Any suggestions on the music and photos front?

I also recommend Xmarks for bookmark syncing
