There's potentially some overlap between the options here, so pick the one you feel reflects your behaviour best. For instance, if you keep a few tasks on Outlook but they're not up to date at all and you just work out what you're doing day to day, pick "I don't use to-do lists".

I did have contacts and calendar syncing between home computer and PDA, but the PDA is ancient and I don't really use it any more, and I've moved my contacts onto Google and am not syncing them with the Palm software. As and when I get around to upgrading my phone, I'll probably sort out syncing again.

I have a few tasks on Google's task thing, but not many. My to-do list at work is a Word document that I update periodically and print out and write on in between, and I quite often have personal to-do lists and notes on bits of paper (so I chose the "paper lists" option).
