    I was given a palm pilot m130. its pretty tight i guess. color and what not.
    however, the only thing i can think to use it for is for a electronic flick book and looking fly when getting numbers-except this week is my seven year anniversery with the lady so that aspect is kinna dulled.
    i got the lady one and she plays scrabble with it.
    oh, and i got a black book started on the note section.
    hmmmm.....i suppose i should read the instruction manual and upload flicks to it.

    anybody have any recomandations on upgrade software worth obtaining.

    i was planning on gettings the atlas.

    if i got one for free i would probably use it for phone numbers and possibly the calendar, but i would never be able to use it enough to justify paying for it...

    my thoughts exactly
    i mean im no business man or anything so it would really be a waste
    id probably just end up playing games on it all day
    or lose it somewhere when i got drunk

    Yeah, I have a Sidekick and use the shit out of it considering it has email and aim, in addition to a mini web browser, contact info, a little color camera, and a couple other things. I barely use my cell since I got it.

    Highly recommended and only $50 from amazon after rebates (plus $40 a month service).

    how big are the screens on these things now?
    i mean do websites and whatnot look archaic or are things clear and crisp?

    i saw one on techtv that doubled as a cell phone but they said it was a piece of shit
    and the others they reviewed didnt seem all that great either

    I had one for a bit, I bought b/c I got a deal of a lifetime (kina like that $10 story). Never used it, the only thing I used it for was to hold my phone #'s..which my phone does that anyway. Sold it on ebay for $250.

    If you don't use it sell that sh!t

    I was bought a decent handspring from a client a few years ago.
    I used it for some time and generally thought it was good to have.
    Thinking back I'd still be using a Blackberry or the Handspring Treo.


    but here's why I stoped using it...

    I dont have USB on my old mac at home.
    I didn't want to have to back things up and keep them on a computer at work.
    Plus the big one.... I LOVE PENS AND INK! I just couldnt move away from organic writing tools.
