For years I've been using Palm Desktop as a calendar and contacts manager, even though I stopped using a Palm device long ago. It's always served me well, so I have never explored transferring the information from PD to iCal and Address Book. But it's time to sync my phone and another computer, and I may even decide to try to adapt to Outlook if I buy the new version of MS Office.

Can anyone offer any guidance on this subject? (Please keep in mind that, although I've been a Mac user since 1984, I'm an English major at heart, i.e., not a 'tekkie.') Any help would be most appreciated.
