First up, if you’ve not seen the original post and video, checkit. Secondly, this is a long detailed post. Fetch a drink and a snack.
Right, here it is, the how-to for syncing the N900 over the air with iPhoto. First, before I go any further a strong warning:
This software setup is *extremely* experimental. It’s really just a proof of concept. Don’t even attempt it unless you understand all the steps here, and the risks. I’ve only had an N900 3 days, it’s barely been tested. If you do try it, backup all your data etc. I make no promises these steps will work for you, and assume no responsibility if they delete all your data, or worse. It may also use a LOT of data over the network, so beware!
Blunt, but I felt it had to be said. I don’t want someone complaining to me if they loose all their photos! A second, lesser warning – this how-to is not for the faint of heart. You need to be comfortable with the terminal etc. It’s not written for novice linux/mac users, it’s written for someone like myself that knows what they’re doing. If it seems over-complex, well hopefully there’ll be a nice easy to use application version of all this some time soon, check the last section for my thoughts on that. Having said that, if you do know what you’re about and some part is unclear – fire away in the comments and I’ll clarify it.
