I did try Journal Bar on my 2210 and it did work ok, but when the trial time ran out I removed it.
I seem to remember having to click somewhere next to the weather icons to get it to download. Also is Active Sync set to synchronize with Journal Bar?
I then realized I already had a program that could download news etc.
It came free with the Ipaq. The program is called Avantgo and, apart from the fancy weather icons in Journal Bar, it is much better than Journal Bar
It certainly can download more stuff to read.
A smal free program that I've found to be very good and useful is ActiveSync Toggle. With this, ActiveSync doesn't have to be enabled all the time, you can switch it on and off.
