  1. Shall be interesting to see if 30 Boxes gets mass adoption around the world. They may rock, but they still have to get market share and beat out whatever Microsoft comes up with.

    Oh yea, so will Apple’s new calendar server in Leopard Server work with 30 boxes? CalDAV anyone?

  2. Tsani,

    it would be pretty cool to have 30Boxes work with the new calendar server. I have forwarded your comment to the founders and lets hope they get back with some update.

    on the mass adoption, i get a feeling that even with a few 100,000 users and some of them buying premium services they could make decent money to survive and actually thrive. you know they are just three people and not much overhead.

    what i am saying is that not everything has to have the scope of outlook/microsoft.

  3. on the mass adoption, i get a feeling that even with a few 100,000 users and some of them buying premium services they could make decent money to survive and actually thrive. you know they are just three people and not much overhead.

    I haven’t read it yet, but isn’t that the point of “The Long Tail,” that production efficiencies are so good now that you can survive and thrive on a niche in a way not previously possible? And isn’t this how 30boxes, 37signals, and a lot of others are indeed making it?

    Cheers,

  5. Hi Om,

    411Sync offers a mobile interface to Google, 30Boxes, Trumba and Upcoming.org calendars.

    Using this, you can fetch your upcoming events/appointments from your calendar using SMS, EMAIL and WAP.
