My second-hand Treo arrived two days ago, pretty much as advertised (a little nicked but functional) and I am officially back in PalmWorld.
If I understand things, I am the last big fan of the Palm OS in the entire world. I've been using a loaned iPaq for nine months and while I appreciate the slickness of it, I kept ending up with sixteen windows open. I love the simplicity of the Palm.
My first PDA was a Palm III that was gifted to me on Fathers Day of 2000. A friend from our church owned it and I was enthralled with it. She looked at it, looked at me, and said "Here. It's yours." I was sold immediately.
That Palm organized my world. It got me where I was supposed to go, on time, and once I installed Docs to Go, under budget as well. My favorite Palm memory is when the trailer hitch fell off Steve Sjogren's RV in remote Iowa and I whipped out my Palm to open a spreadsheet containing every truck stop's contact info on I-80. I was an electronic hero.
It's funny, but the first piece of software that I installed on this Treo is something called Big Clock, which is, uh....self explanitory. I was tickled to find it because it's the exact same thing I had on my Palm III six years ago. I guess it's difficult to improve on a...big clock.
