My grandson got a Palm thing for his birthday recently. I don't know exactly what they are or their uses, but I've read about people "organizing" things, etc. I just want to know some web sites or news groups to tell him about.<br><br>Anyone? TIA<br><br>
Hey, Kate, here's a URL for software downloads. It's a Handspring site, but Handspring uses the Palm OS, so there should be no compatibility problems. I don't know about your grandson, but I got a Visor (the cheapest I could find) so I can keep track of meetings. Haven't missed one since I got it <br><br>Great wits are sure to madness near allied.--John Dryden, "Absalom and Achitophel"

well, i just switched from a palm to my laptop, but the palm was great for me since i used to write stuff in a calendar and then forget to open my calendar. the palm wouldn't let me forget as the alarm would go off at the specific time and voila, i made the meetings on time.<br><br>[color:blue] -sean</font color=blue>
I've been thinking about the Palm for a while now. Since I keep forgetting to do a lot of things and also forget numbers, appointments, etc.<br><br>Is it really useful? I would like to put down random thoughts, notes, etc.<br><br>Is the Palm any good, or would a 2nd hand Newton be a better choice?<br><br>--<br>I am Dyslexic of Borg. Fusistance is retile.

Not unless your grandson is a top exect or something he would find a small pocket size note book and a pen would be better and faster for his needs.<br><br>To me a Palm is just a glorifide calculator that takes notes and stores address. By the time he messes with menus and all, he could have worte it down on paper but some people like their gadgits.<br><br>
"To me a Palm is just a glorifide calculator that takes notes and stores address."<br><br>I guess that is true to persons like you and me, Carp. However, I don't think the millions who bought and use them only do so as a glorified calculator taking notes. You only need look at the web site referred to here in this thread to get ideas how others put them to use. http://www.handango.com/handspring/<br><br>Kate<br><br>
I wasn't sure about the Palm at first either. Finally decided to get the Palm V for a couple of reasons. Size is perfect for not deciding not to bring it along. The others are not that much bigger but bulky by comparison. Battery recharges while in the HotSync cradle.<br><br>Uses are too many to list but here are a few everyone would/could use. Keep in mind you can create as many categories as you like and view them separately.<br><br>Registration numbers and passwords for software/shareware and the passwords is self explanatory.<br><br>Movie rentals/purchases... how many times have you rented the same movie twice... okay, it's just me. <br><br>Grocery lists for each store you frequent. That goes for any other type of store as well.<br><br>Say you are going to paint or remodel a room (new carpet, drapes, blinds, whatever) and you take measurements. Put them in the Palm and the next time you're at Home Depot...<br><br>You won't really appreciate how many different ways it will make your life easier until you have it.<br><br>Yikes... I sound like a commercial.<br><br>
