Why do we subject ourselves

Nice flight over NYC on Monday night. 
Finding a task manager that works with Outlook and both the iphone and ipad is proving to be almost impossible.  The fact that Apple refuses to accept the realities of life will definitely limit them.   Microsoft owns the corporate market, and that means your stuff has to work with Outlook.
And why is it so hard to sync with multiple computers.  I have to constantly reselect that I want to sync my contacts and calendars.  Frustrating.
I think I'll be going all Chrome/Droid based next time.  Apple makes great products but they make it too hard to use their products within the greater context of the world and I am not going to have an iLife by Apple.
