I have an iPhone 4 and an iPad 2. I sync them to my main machine at the house and manually manage the music/books/vids/etc that is one them.
However, I'm getting ready for an extended trip and am only taking my smaller travel laptop. The contact info is synced to Outlook but the exact same Outlook file is on my travel machine as well via dropbox.
Is there a way to connect either/both to my travel machine once I'm gone and be able to update them, either in music, apps, vids, whatever and not have to reset them completely? Would it help to copy my apps over as well?
I don't mind some intricate technical workarounds, so long as I don't have to erase the units prior. I'm not so worried about music syncing, but it would be nice to be able to transfer my notes, some new vids and pics whilst traveling.
