Hi Everyone ,
This is my fiirst post ever. And am I am asking a question instead of answering.

Does Any one know of a application which will sync contacts across all platforms and social networks

Let say I use a
WM6 phone
MacBook Pro
Windows Vista PC

Its a head ache when you have the same person on different networks whit all this information across you tend to miss some one or the other.
I am sure there has to be some thing out there.

Thanks in advance.
Kind Regards ,

Ah - the holy grail of IT.

Seriously though, I use exchange to map out WM, OS X and Windows (OS X + Windows require Entourage/Outlook).

I have high hopes that the next version of OS X will sync properly with Exchange and be cheap. (Rumours to be on sale in the US for $29, UK for ~ ?25)

WRT Facebook, twitter, Orkut ... do you really want those online apps to have syncing ability to your contacts? (Particularly Facebook with the recent postings about permission to use your cell # etc. in the plug in apps)

Hi ... Thank your for the exchange idea...
I have found a few aps to sync Facebook to Mac
but it would be really cool to have same information ever where. For eg if a meet some one in person .I have his name , location and number , if the same person has a facebook id sync it same for meeting some one on facebook
There has to be some app to actually have each person as single entity rather than 10 different ids.
So there should be a single point from where you can reach some one ( eventually your cell phone ) . It can either be a call / twit / email just about any thing .
So the first step is the sync .

Even if there is a mashup .
I think I am dreaming too much of a perfect world where every medium talks to each other seamlessly
