Yeah, I agree with you there. Much better to have them all on a Palm than carrying along many grubby pieces of paper.<br><br>Just checked out the prices in India. Boy, they sure are expensive!<br><br>http://www.palm-asia.com/in/<br><br>--<br>I am Dyslexic of Borg. Fusistance is retile. Your a$$ will be laminated.
Right Kate doll.<br><br>Some people do need those kinds of PDAs.<br><br>I use what is called mental memory and a small pocket notebook and a pen. The good thing about the pocket notebook and the pen is, that its always turned on. Never needs to recharge or download, I can drop it and it won't break, I never need to upgrade it, just buy another 59 cent notebook when the pages run out of space. The notebook has no learning curve, theres no need to Navigate through menus, I just flip the pages.<br><br>The only crash I had was when I dropped it in water but it was still readable, try that with a Plam.<br><br>
You're right... I used to have a Rolodex that wasn't with me when I needed it, hoards of business cards, sticky notes all over the place and my memory serves me well.<br><br>But... I couldn't count the times I got home from the store and realized I had forgotten one item.<br><br>I guess if you didn't have a car... you wouldn't have to put gas in it either... how inconvenient is that? Which leads to the ultimate question... what are you doing on a computer... on the internet?<br><br>And then there's the cell phone thing... suppose you'd rather stick your ear on some pay phone hand set, if you can find a pay phone, that some kid decided to spit on to make your calls when you're out and about.<br><br>Yep... you're right... bicycle, note pad and a pencil will work out just fine. <br><br>
Emotions don't show well on the written page, do they?<br><br>Not a cheap attack... a little over the top exaggeration about living in the past. (I.e., dry humor)<br><br>Borrowing a quote from Swatcat... "lighten up" Carp. <br><br><br><br>
humor in your post Terry and liked it. Good one.<br>A lot of us could see ourselves in the same situations -- looking for that scrap of paper we wrote a very important msg on. Thanks.<br><br>Kate<br><br>
I used to put stickies on my computer monitor--I mean physical stickies, not the Mac kind --and I'd still forget meetings. I never thought I'd be a PDA kinda guy, but then I never thought I'd live to be over half a century old, so I guess anything can happen.<br><br>Great wits are sure to madness near allied.--John Dryden, "Absalom and Achitophel"

Ahhh not so, Grasshopper. You would be amazed at what a Palm can do for you — beyond the predictable address, memo, calendar stuff.<br><br>Tap: I can look up a restaurant in any neighborhood, and get walking directions from wherever I'm standing to the front door of that restaurant. Too far to walk? Tap: Get the shortest subway route. Wait a sec, this place is expensive Tap: Ok, I'll use credit card X. Uh-oh, can't get a table tonight, so maybe I'll just stop at the market and eat in. Tap: One shopping list coming up...<br><br>You gettin' the picture?<br><br>
All right, that Thingie works for some people. Not for me.<br><br>The pencel/pen is so much faster AND like the Palm you will need to log/write it down. You forget to do so then both methods are pointless.<br><br>Now if the Palm can record meetings "coversations" then it could be a tool for me.<br><br>
