    not too sure whats going on here. just got the Evo and ditched the iPhone. pretty happy so far, of course. i have a friend online who gives me pointers and we are stumped. i have my gmail account setup and working properly. but my Bookmarks are not syncing up. IE: there is a flikr shortcut there and i dont use Flikr. Cnn, Yahoo, Etc all show up and i dont use them.

    i have google chrome, the newest version and chose to sync bookmarks. but why isnt it going onto the Evo?

    chrome's sync bookmarks only does it between chrome browsers on different PCs... not smart phones. it's all manual on the evo buddy. at least for now. perhaps google/htc/sprint have something up their sleeves for their 2.2 release.

    i haven't seen a way to sync from pc to evo. that's why i said it's all manual. you dont need an app on the droid for music. copy u're mps3s to u're sdcard somewhere and it will find them for u. If you want to sync, use windows media player. When u plug in u're evo, choose storage card and WMP can sync things up for ya.

    This will do exactly what you want to do.
    ChromeMarks - Android app on AppBrain

    This allows you to sync your chrome bookmarks into this app that you can view and launch your bookmarks from. It does not put the bookmarks into the browser itself but that is not a big deal really. You can also share a bookmark/page in the Android browser and send it to ChromeMarks, which then syncs back up.

    It works really well except I am having a problem with Chrome not syncing all my bookmarks which is not ChromeMarks fault.

    I also have Xmarks that syncs my FF and Chrome so everything syncs up no matter where I create a bookmark. (Well except that google chrome issue)

    I am having a few other issues that I am hoping will get resolved, it is probably just me :)
