I wrote a blog post about palm pilots.

I haven't even spell checked it, and I'll probably do a second draft tonight or tomorrow, but the core points are out (and I'm a publish early and iterate often kind of guy)

This is just impressions that I have had from using a palmOne computer regularly over the last ~2 months.



@ajroach42 I filled my handspring with text files well after they weren't a thing anymore... A bunch of Gutenberg Project books, and in place of mp3s, song lyrics. I've got decent pipes ;)

@twodimes I'm using plucker for ebooks and my RSS feed, and my palms have SD card slots, so I'm just using MP3s.

@ajroach42 you're just reminding me how happy my early devices made me, like my handspring and 256mb Rio Cali mp3 player.... ;)

@twodimes @ajroach42 I did much the same. A bunch of ebooks, most free off of Gutenberg and others from Baen before Baen died and the new owner went full on hard right Puppy. And I finally got semi-organized by way of the add on Datebk calendar (donationware, requesting a donation to a gorilla sanctuary iirc). When my TX stopped charging I might have picked up a Lifedrive but that was around the time that Sprint talked me into switching providers and I picked up the same smart phone I have today
