MS Outlook is fine in case you have an exchange account. iTune will synchronize ToDo list and Calendar very well. No need to re-invent the wheel. If you need a detailed instructions:

If you have Google mail account, use Google Calendar sync:

It synchronizes the Outlook calendar too.

You can use MobileMe, there is a nice set of applications that includes mail, calendar, todo, disk, FindMe for iPhone.

If you will find it possible, you can check Windows Live Sync:

Probably, these are the main options. Of course, you can look for less known 3rd party solutions. Just look for it in Google and iTune Store. Fore example:

All these are good generic suggestions.

I recommend Pocket Informant, which handles both tasks and calendar.

here is a review of it for the ipad, but it also runs on iphone and ipod touch, blackberries (though not well), and windows mobile. Think of it as a franklin covey pocket organizer application.

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

I should add that it syncs with ical, or google calendar and toodledo. Toodledo also has an iphone/ipod touch app if you're interested, and google calendar syncs via webdav.

I believe it syncs with Outlook (Windows) too.

confirms that it syncs with outlook for an additional fee for the sync program. ical sync in development. (august 24th, 2010). itask pro also has good reviews in this category, but is only for tasks.
