Missing "sync with google" on mac os 10.5.8 address book

If you want to sync your address book to google, you can do it directly from your address book.
some Leopard macs will not show this options and the following will fix it.

Open terminal
Copy and paste the following:

echo "\"{ Devices = { red-herring = { 'Family ID' = 10001; }; }; }\"" >> ~/Library/Preferences/com.apple.iPod.plist
quit/start your address book
