Neither did MS in its first few years.

Not saying there is a point to point sameness here, just a general type
overlook of the situations.

Palm is not the best PDA out there, subjectivley of course. Once again the
best PDA was killed off by the hands of its creators.

Im interested in what oBM is cooking up with thier "wearable" For me a PDA
is not of much use at the current price/performance break. I had a Palm
for a long while and finaly gave it away to a friend. They get lots of use
out of it.

For me a PDA is less about address books and list keeping and more about
mobile communications to either the net or to my home network. Few of the
Palm/mobile soultions are of a great price/performance break yet.

I think I wont truly be happy till I can borg to some greater degree.
Now if they only make 7 of 9 the install tech.....once can dream.
