Palm Desktop 4.0 Released -- Palm, Inc. today made Palm Desktop 4.0 for Macintosh available as a free download. The new version adds Mac OS X compatibility, support for records marked private, and the capability to import and export vCard and vCal files. (As a quick example of vCard use, you can drag a contact's title bar icon directly to the Contacts folder of a mounted iPod to add it to the rudimentary address book feature added in last week's iPod 1.1 software update.)
