Well Changes are always good – I got this greatest opportunity to work on a project for palm computers. Before I come up with a new post where I will be noting down the requirements of my project lets take a preface about Palm Computers.
I can say many people don't know exactly what the Palm Craze is. They think of the first generation of handheld devices -- that old address book and schedule. They were tiny and expensive. Palm Craze is in full swing because the devices out there now will enable a person to have all of her addresses, appointments, email, word processing documents, spreadsheets, databases, and genealogy conclusions in something that will fit into a pocket.
They run on 2 basic operating system: Windows CE, Palm OS.
They are again 2 basic manufacturers – The Palm Pilots from Palm, the Visors from Handspring.
Palm presently makes three models: the III, V, and VII. Everyone I've met likes her own model the best, so there's something to say for them all. They come with varying amounts of memory.
IBM recently announced a hard drive holding a gigabyte that will fit into a palm. A gigabyte, contrary to anything you may have heard, is really big.
Sony will be making a Palm device soon,
Let's face it, people shouldn't get these things for the fun of it. They should offer some functionality that helps them do something better, cheaper, and faster. Life is a constant set of experiments to find better ways to deal with the same challenges, over and over. The Palm Craze is just a normal manifestation of several million people looking for a better way to keep track of things that they can't remember, and to connect with others.
Well so far I am not a Palm Craz…………..but I guess the day I start programming for WinMO I will one among them.
My First week in my new Office has made me realize that there’s lot to me learnt & done in life. Its only we who restrict our self. Every Day I am learning some thing new. Before I go to bed I just ask my self what I have learnt today – and it’s only when I get an answer I get a nice complete sleep.
