Well, I'd rather do an open version. :P

More seriously... standards? Docs?
Comment 2 shrek-m 2008-07-10 19:09:14 EDT
hmm, i am no developer,
i do not know if these infos are usefull, just my thoughts.


the wwdc 2008 keynote adress
http://events.apple.com.edgesuite.net/0806wdt546x/event/index.html


you can listen to  Scott Forstall  about the iphone 2.0 sdk (september 2008)
between 0:54-0:59 he explains the "unified push notification service" which
provides a persistent ip connection to the server. it provides 3 types of
notifications: badges?, alert sounds, textural alerts with buttons.

between 1:07-1:22 Phil Schiller gives a live demo http://me.com with safari and
iphone.


docs and standards? i do not know.
http://developer.apple.com/

i do not know how all the linux-apps are communicating between each other but
could the  evolution-data-server act as a translator/proxy for MobileMe and
other linux apps?
can he push emails, contacts, calendars to evolution, thunderbird, sunbird,
openldap, postfix, dovecot, cyrus-imap, webdav, ... ?


could redhat/fedora provide a similiar service with open standards and oss?
e.g.  http://rhnoffice.redhat.com
Comment 3 shrek-m 2008-07-17 15:43:48 EDT
it seems that the protocol is microsofts exchange activesync protocol via http/https


the open source push technology - zarafa_engine / z-push - could be a
possibility for future fedora relaeses.



http://z-push.sourceforge.net/soswp/
[...] Z-push is an implementation of the ActiveSync protocol, which is used
'over-the-air' for multi platform ActiveSync devices, including Windows Mobile,
Ericsson and Nokia phones. With Z-push any groupware can be connected and synced
with these devices. [...]
