I was using MyPhoneExplorer for my Droid 2 Global, but it doesn't work for the Xoom, as I cannot find the client in the Market. Any thoughts on sync'ing with the Xoom? I don't want to go through GMail and the cloud. Until I lose my tinfoil hat, I don't want to have my data that far out of my control. ;)

Should I leave Office 2003 to be able to sync?

I'm still using Office 2003, but if someone said Office 2007 or 2010 could sync while 2003 cannot, I'd consider upgrading the office suite. I need to stick with office due to compatibility with office at work. I'd love to use OpenOffice or something else cheaper than Microsoft's suite, but I'd be concerned about the potential loss of complete compatibility.

Hi GeneDoc, I have a question for ya. I know you said you need to still use MS Outlook and don't want to rely solely on Gmail. If you could still use MS Outlook as well as Gmail, would this work for you? The reason I ask is because I am currently using this setup and it is working seemlessly for me. It also syncs directly to my phone. The only thing that you would need to do is try a sync utility software called gsyncit. It syncs your emails and contacts within MS Outlook with gmail. The cost is only $29. you can check it out at gsyncit.com Not sure if this would work for you, but, it's worth a look. Hope this helps.

PS: This should also work for the Xoom as well.

While I apreciate the option, a goal is to limit personal info out of the cloud. I don't want friends' information out there. So, I'm admitting I've got a tinfoil hat, but want to protect their info. I also want to keep my calendar out of the cloud, as it may have confidential information in it.
