The Technorati

Warning! Warning! This is a DH posting! Which means, sadly, that there will likely be a lot less knitting content than your typical Corgimom post. And by that I mean zero. Unless you count the fact that I just used the word knitting. But I don't.

Anyway, the time has come for my DW (does it work that way?) to enter the next phase of technological assimilation: the PDA. We have determined that her schedule for her job is simply too crazy to handle without the assistance of electronic devices. However, she is unwilling to give up her Razr phone, so we are bypassing the Treos and the Crackberries and going for a straight-up PDA (which are getting harder and harder to find, I might add).

She's been able to play with a few - mainly a Palm Tungsten in an Office Max and an iPaq that my coworker has. So far I think she's favoring the latter, as the Windows Mobile versions have a better visual display for the day view in the calendar - it blocks it out with squares and colors, whereas the Palm OS version just gives you dots and times. However, she thought it would be wise to solicit opinions from the collective experience of the masses, and thus here we are. At this point, our two main choices would be between the Palm TX and the iPaq R1955, as they both have Wi-Fi capability, but we're open to new suggestions.

That's it for me. Back to your regularly scheduled Corgi Knitting.

I used to have an Ipaq and it was great! The only downside was that I couldn't replace the battery in it. Right now I have a Dell Axim which works great, but Dell is bringing my ire for not supporting Windows Vista for older model Axims>:(

We may have an old Palm V sitting around here in good condition with a nice Coach leather case that we'd give you for cheap or free if we can dig it out of whatever hidey hole DH left it in. Let me know if you're interested.
