1. MY Dream Palm! KeepItSimple
Anybody else wish that Palm would realize that sometimes the KISS rule
really does work?
I'm perfectly fine that some people, possibly the majority, are happy
with, even needful of, all the bells and whistles that are slathered
all over PDAs these days, but doesn't Palm realize there is a happy
medium somewhere in between?
Even with their Zire model, Palm went from bare bones basic, to "Holy
shit, what CAN'T I do with this?" with nothing in between.
Yes, that's an exaggeration, but the point stands.
I'm in a position in which I cannot have a camera on my PDA. I can't
have Bluetooth, I can't have WiFi, I can't have voice recording, I
can't have MP3 playback. Because of this, I, and others who don't
want/need bells and whistles, are left out in the cold.
I have a M505. I love it, but feel cheated that I can't take
advantage of some of the advances made by Palm because they couple
them with things that preclude me from owning the newer Palms.
That said, here is My Dream Palm (tm)
128MB RAM (Heck, I'd be happy with 64)
320x320 Color Screen
OS5 (which entails the new processor)
Good old fashioned Graffiti
That's it. No sliding hidden graffiti area, no 5-way navigation
button, (well, okay, that might be nice) no jog dial, no built-in
thumbboard, just a basic, yet powerful PDA. A *PDA*, not a recording
studio, not a portrait studio, not a cell phone, a PD*Assistant*.
How come it's so hard for Palm to understand that there might just be
a market for such a beast out here?
Anybody else feel the same?
"While I am new to these things, I cannot help wondering whether it
might be disrepectful to vault over an altar that way."
