Down with Yahoo, Up with Funambol
A quick, hopeful email to Funambol Tech Support yielded a fast and informative response:
We have had issues with the Yahoo server – and we have tried to talk to them to no avail. The issue is that the server is not syncML compliant, it says it is, but if fails on very some basic issues.We recommend using any of the low costs servers out there. We will launch one soon as well.
Admittedly, it is extremely difficult for even Yahoo to produce user-friendly, sleek-UI’d applications for a non-tech-savvy base, while maintaining support for more technical users via industry-standard interfaces. So I can understand Yahoo’s pain. But it still doesn’t get my calendar sync’ed.
