Phones, Smartphones, and PDAs

My favorite gadget? My Nokia 3650. Weird, functional.


Viva Las Vegas...!

Pictures to come, but here's the generally gist: I took my Nokia 3650 and my new Dell Axim 50v with me, in lieu of a laptop and the cellphone pairing. I can tell you all a few things you may or may not know about this combo:

  1. Have your chargers available. I had chargers for both, while a buddy of mine only had his car charger for his phone. He had to watch his usage every day as a result.

  2. Cellphone signals have gotten dramatically better in Las Vegas since I last visited in 1996 (awhile). I got five-by-five in all but the innermost parts of casinos, and I had 100% coverage in every LA elevator I was in (yes, Jack Bauer's cellphone really does work that well in LA, apparently).

palmOne LifeDrive Mobile Manager Hands On Review

Product Requirements:
Device: Windows 2000 or XP, Mac OS X v10.2.6 or 10.3

palmOne has been in the PDA market for a little over 9 years now. I think most of you will admit that they pretty much started this 'revolution' that we know as handheld computing. Yes, I know there were other handheld PDAs before the Palm Pilot 1000 and 5000, but none of them took the world by storm like those first Palms did. In these past 9 years, we've seen many evolutionary changes to palmOne PDAs.

Cell phone complaints....

I have been suffering from extreme frustration with my cell phone solution.

I have the Cingular familly plan. The service itself is fine, but the basic phones I got with the plan just STINK. I got the basic Sony Ericsson model last June. I have had to replace phones several different times, and have another one that is dead.

I talked to cingular and they gave me permission over the phone to just go into a store and upgrade to a new phone.

When I got to the store, the only way they would let me upgrade was with a new two year agreement.

BARF.

I am so incredibly frustrated with these phones, I don't know if I want to continue with Cingular. I am almost ready to pay the money to cancel my contract to go with someone else.

Grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr.

I just want my phone to work.
