Sprint recently announced that the latest Palm OS device, the Palm Pixi, will go on sale in the U.S. on November 15th. The original Palm OS device, the Pre was released in June of this year. There has been a lot of commentary relative to the Pixi positioning. It’s got some great design features and some head scratching limitations asRead more
I’ve been a business smartphone user since the category was invented. I started with Palm and have been loyal to them through the years as the market has developed from a niche geek market to the fastest growing segment of mobile communications. Analysts say it will easily overtake conventional cell phones in developed countries very soon.
As a business user,
A little bit later this morning I’ll be on a plane, headed north for a whirlwind round of Windows 7 launch activities in NYC and Washington DC as Microsoft’s and HP’s guest.
Wayne and Dan will be on their way into NYC as well, to attend Engadget Live, as the show engages in a “frank and unscripted one-on-one conversation”
Web site The Street is reporting “Exclusive: Verizon Snubs Palm Pre”. There’s no telling whether their tipster means that only the Pre won’t make the Verizon trip. By the time Verizon is ready to offer a new Palm smartphone there very well could be a refresh of the Palm Pre under a different name or even model. In addition,Read more
It seems like only yesterday that I was New York City for the release of the first Vivienne Tam Digital Clutch, the MiniNote netbook that she had personally worked with HP to design, and now there is already an update. Last night Vivienne Tam’s new digital clutch was unveiled on the catwalk of her Spring 2010 fashion show.
Sometimes it pays to stay up into the wee hours of the morning, watching Bounty with your sweetie. I came to check email during a popcorn break, and found a little surprise in my inbox..
Here is thew newest member of the webOS lineup – the Palm Pixi. It looks like the HTC Tattoo isn’t the only phone that means
As I posted yesterday, I’m even surprised by how much I am enjoying my Blackberry Bold. I never expected to be a two-handheld guy, and the fact that I am still feels odd. The fact that the second handheld is a BB is even more striking. THAT, however, wasn’t the biggest gadget surprise in our home this week, though.Read more
When I started this series, my hope had been to tackle all of the apps in the Palm Pre App Catalog before its official launch, later this month. But the developers turned out to be too fast for me. In the month since I started this series, the App Catalog has grown from 30 apps to 45, and is reallyRead more

I have to admit that I have never been one to dabble to deep in the stock market. Most of my money is in IRAs or index based funds. Plus, I rarely want to have the values too close, because looking at how much money I am constantly losing can get a bit depressing these days. Nonetheless, for those ofRead more
Let’s just get this out of the way quickly. Word Ace is my new favorite game, and is the best game currently available for the Palm Pre. OK…I know saying that any game is better than other games on the Palm Pre may not be much of a compliment…but this really is a fantastic game.
This is a pretty simple app, but one which could be quite useful to those folks who spend a lot of time in their cars, whether that means travelling long distances, or commuting into town each morning. This app lets you use your Palm Pre to track how many miles you are getting per gallon of gas, and how muchRead more
Yes…I do mean THAT Connect 4. The one you loved as a kid. sliding checkers into a plastic frame, trying to make four in a row. This is one of my son’s favorite games, and I love the fact that he is so interested in a game from my own childhood. And thanks to the folks at Hasbro and EA
Let’s have a show of hands. How many of you watch the Today Show in the morning. It is pretty hard to miss, since it is about five hours long, yet I manage to do so since I leave the house before 6:00 each morning. So, I rarely get to watch the show upon which this app is based.
I am pretty happily married, and have been since before dating sites like Match.com became all the rage. So, needless to say, I do not have an account at Match.com or any other similar sites. That being said, I can certainly see the value they might offer the modern connected single. In fact, my sister-in-law met her husband that way.
Ever since I graduated from college with a degree in Journalism, I have tried to keep track of which newspapers have the best writing. Consistently near the top of that list has been The New York Times (for the record, Chicago Tribune, Washington Post, CNN, and the AP Newswire round out my personal top five). So, I was pretty excited
Tonight is Friday, which means it is the start of the Jewish holiday Shabbat, which is the Sabbath. It begins at sundown on Friday and runs through sundown on Saturday. Shabbat can be a very ritualistic holiday, with certain prayers and other activities which occur at specified times. Of course, since nothing can ever be too easy, these times change
It is like a shared ritual. We have all been there. Your friend, mother, mother-in-law, or another random visitor is coming into town for a visit. Your job is to meet them at the airport. Unless you live across the street from the airport, this requires an incredible feat of timing and coordination. Otherwise, your friend ends up standing outside
The folks at Zumobi are well known for the widgetized apps they have developed, primarily for Windows Mobile. So, I was pretty interested to find out what they had put together when I saw their name cropping up in the Palm Pre App Catalog. What I found was Sporting News Pro Baseball.

Right before I finished up the HP Pavilion dv2 laptop review, I was sent a couple of boxes containing an HP Pavilion dv6z-1299lx and an HP Mini 110-1036NR. Even though I knew the purpose of the experiment which was about to happen, I couldn’t help but wonder why anyone in
The single biggest problem my wife and other family members have is making sure that their data is backed up. The HP Mediasmart LX195 will help you make sure that data is safe and a while lot more.
This server is based on Microsoft’s Windows Home Server. It’s not my normal operating system of choice, but I think that Microsoft
Windows Mobile 6.5 is coming this fall, and Windows Mobile 7 is coming in 2010. But is it too little, too late?
According to Jack Gold in Businessweek, Microsoft should exit the smartphone market and cede the enterprise world to RIM. Microsoft has taken something of a beating in marketshare lately, but is it so bad that they should
Time to take a look at another game for the Palm Pre, Blackout. Sadly, this is number four of five. Like many of the other games available for the Pre, it is a good concept, but an underwhelming exhibition of what this platform can do.
We have taken a look at SplashID several times before. This is one of the great apps coming out of SplashData, who seems to have now come full circle. They started out developing for PalmOS, moved on to Windows Mobile, iPhone, Nokia, and even several desktop platforms. Well, now they have come back to their roots with Palm and their
