There's something special about running an arcade game on a 21" screen
that a Palm Pilot just can't replace. :-)

Not that I don't love my little m105, mind you...

|| Gosh, you kids are still using PC's? That's like, so retro.

Yeah - Space Invaders on a 3" screen just doesn't have the same thrill.

I jsut replaced my 2 year old Visor Prism with a T3. I'm in love. I
bought a 256m SD card, and I've got bunch of MP3, and dozens of ebooks.
In fact, I probably use it more for book reading than anything else.
It's nice having the extended screen, and in hi-res mode, too. But I'm
very impressed with the software that's out there, from all sorts of
useful little freeware utilities to big apps like Agendus (contact
manager and datebook) and Docs toGo (an office suite that reads and
writes actual MS files rignt off your SD card).

I even bought a little fold up keyboard for it for when I have to do
some editing and don't want to drag out the laptop. Very cool.

Hi Tom,

Do you have any of my freebie ebooks for the palm PDA's?

Here in comp.os.geos.misc,
"Tom Accuosti" < XXXX@XXXXX.COM > spake unto us, saying:


I'm still reading paper books. My latest is Winston Churchills first
volume on World War 2. Interesting reading. :-)

I use my Palm as a calculator, for creating/maintaining small databases
(address/phone book, home inventory, etc.), and for playing games mostly.

Then again, I'm still in the process of exploring its uses, and I'm sure
I'll outgrow this one fairly quickly.


Yes, there are a lot of useful apps out there for PalmOS. I really
like the freeware DB database, HandyShopper, and the Parens calculator,
and even some of the little utilities I've found like X-Master and
BatteryLog are extremely handy.


I just bought a second Palm folding keyboard for my m105 (in case the
first one breaks) for US$4 + S&H on half.com.

It's the same model as my first one -- the type by Think Outside that
folds by quarters into a square slightly larger than the Palm itself,
and while it does seem fairly sturdy and probably won't break, I just
couldn't refuse the price on the second one. :-)
