How can I connect to Mac?
How can I connect my blackberry to my Mac computer? My Os X is 10.4.11 and I can't download blackberry desktop manager on my computer because the software is too low. Is there an alternative to connect my bold 9700 and sync it?

OK, I wasn't aware that there was a lower limit on the OSX Version for Desktop manager.
There are a couple of options.
-The obvious, update to a newer version of the Mac OS on your computer.
-Dual Boot your mac with Windows.
-Install windows in a virtual machine.
While I use and support MAC's at work, I've never done a dual boot or Virtual machine. (Why when I have a Windows PC, MAC and Linux boxes all 3 on my desk?) So, I can't be much more help.
Maybe one of the regulars that use the Mac OS more can help.

I would suggest that you ask your question in the Mac Users forum. Most people in the device forums have PCs, but the Mac Users forum tends to get answers from folks who are very knowledgeable about Macs.

Sorry, you can't download DM on Tiger, if you want, you have 3 options.
1. Install PacketMac
2. Dual Boot with Windows
3. Upgrade to Leopard or Snow Leopard.

I have the same problem. I have two PowerBook G4 laptops, both Aluminum, one with 1.67ghz running Leopard, and on 1.5ghz running Tiger. Unfortunately the screen on the 1.67 went out and I cannot do a thing with my Desktop Manager on it. The 1.5 on Tiger has Virtual PC on it, but I hate the 1.5 and refuse to use it for anything more than a backup while the other awaits funding for repairs. Besides that I loathe using the PC side of this thing, it's so slow and cumbersome and will not budge. So, I guess, like you I'm in a predicament, but in opposition to mine is due to my own idiotically staunch nature. ;D I paid for the Virtual PC program and if it were possible to make a copy of the disks I'd be glad to send them to you at no cost. I just have no idea if that's at all possible, but I'll look into it now for sure.

- Optional, but not needed.
Downloads - VirtualBox
This may help, it's free. Why pay for something that does much the same thing?
EDIT: There's always the option of getting Ubuntu on the imac, it should run fine with virtualbox, just needs a bit of work getting it all setup, that's if you're as tech-orientated as some are.
