I have a kiosk-based system, totally enclosed with an IrDA "eye",
that uses OBEX to send Palm data files to someone within view, no HotSync
required. It can also sync your Palm over IrDA (i.e. pull the data files
back across), though that gets into a bit of a security issue, depending on
how sensitive your data is.
I should roll it into pilot-link upstream at some point, it was more
of a proof-of-concept idea at the time.
