new Sony PalmOS device

2001-10-22 16:27:26+00 by Dan Lyke 6 comments

Unwarranted gadget lust: The Sony T415 runs Palm OS, is .41 inches thick, has a 320x320 screen, a "Jog Dial" (great for paging through longer documents), and no cheesey annoying Ideo flare at the base like the Palm V.

whatdoyamean Unwarranted? Dat's a sweet toy although the vibrate alert is a little suspect. Trying to figure out what word put this in the tolkien catagory?? Maybe because Dagny thinks it's hobbit sized?

Dunno, "tolkien" shows up an awful lot and I guess I forgot to remove it. Maybe this week (ha!) I'll manage to get those extra tweaks in to the categorization stuff...

Interesting discussion at lunch today with Melani about her Clie. She had lots of complaints about it, but most of them seemed to revolve around how the Sony versions of the Windows software interacted with Outlook. Speaking of which, I need to play with PalmWiki some more, I'm starting to swing to the "alternative hardware interfaces are cool" side of my interests.

Idunno I check the category to make sure one of us geniuses didn't enter "the" into the relation table but alas no. The link for Palmwiki seems to be broken now :( you can try this one to get some info. Below is the list for tolkien, can aynone find waldo?

Bingo: "story". Dang, I need to stop looking in URL text, or make it a check ('cause there are a couple of keywords I want to check in URL text).

Aha! . Just cause I was looking. i removed "author" and "story" because they are too broad and will give way more false positives than they should. BTW Ideo flares are cool but super small trumps style....
