Without getting into all the minor details I am thinking about getting an iPod Touch to use as a contacts and calendar database. I need a semi secure way of keeping this data and not syncing it with the cloud. I do need to sync with both my home and work computer. All other features: apps, email, web, iTunes are not necessary for this project.

I want to do a wired sync between the PC and the iPod Touch which I know I can do through iTunes. The question is can I sync contacts and calendar between two PC's (via iTunes) or am I going to get the message that the device is synced with a different library (if it makes a difference I can even disable syncing music)?

If it cant be done through iTunes, anyone have any ideas how I can keep contacts and calendar in sync between two PC's and an iPod Touch (3rd party syncing app maybe)?

QUOTE Thanks

Best recommendation I can come up with if the cloud (like gmail), put out the $6 / month for a full-fledged Microsoft Exchange email account. I have had one on for the last 6 years and have had nothing but success with it. It is NOT a cloud-based system, but one that is encrypted from server to client. I have my MBP, iPad and iPod Touch (rarely used anymore) all sync'd up securely instantly. Make a change on one, the change is replicated on each device automatically with no need to work with outside software unless you want to use MS Outlook. I have Office:mac 2011 with Outlook and love it. You can also view your email, contacts and calendar through any web browser with Outlook Web Access.

Exchange keeps Email, Contacts and Calendar data and keeps it securely.
