Goodbye Palm

Filed under: Rants/Musings — cangione @ 3:54 am

I threw out my wife’s Palm V tonight. I was kind of sad about throwing away a perfectly good device till I reflected that I’ve done without my Palm Pilot for over a year and don’t know how to live without my Blackberry! I update a contact in MS Outlook and it just shows up on my Blackberry. Sync? Why the hell would i want to do that? Notes, Tasks list …. Same Question?

Being of the instant gratification generation, I want one device and I want it to do everything! Sorry Palm, you have become irrelevant in my life…..Now if I could just say the same about MS Outlook!
