Plucker or Isilo?

palmhiker @ 10/23/2003 3:41:20 PM #
First post!

I am trying out Isilo and it is working pretty well. Having tried Plucker in the past with less than satisfying results, can anyone tell me the advantages of Plucker over Isilo, apart from the $20 cost of Isilo?

Why I prefer Plucker...

SD cards and screens on T3
bquin @ 10/23/2003 10:16:27 PM #
since I can't find the previous discussion on teh T3 frying SD cards and the screen quality problem, I thought I would start it up again. Does anyone know the status of these problems? I keep checking the Palm website but nothing is posted there.

iSilo has free command-line converters for OS X, Solaris, Linux and FreeBSD. It'll suck from web sites, but if you want lots of control just use something like wget..

RE: Plucker or Isilo?
fireproof @ 10/24/2003 2:35:47 PM #
I've used both -- iSilo and iSiloX along with the desktop and command-line counterparts for OS X and Linux for the last few years, and Plucker (off and on) since version 1.1.

I've switched to Plucker 1.6 now because it does almost everything I want or need -- it has a command-line converter for my server to use, a GUI converter for my desktop, and it can display hi-res formatted documents with images and links. It's also open-source, it's free, and my documents aren't stuck in a format controlled by someone I don't know. The Plucker developers have also addressed a few lingering issues, like documents larger than 32k being broken into chunks -- now they're kept as one large document, without segmentation, and it's made reading much more pleasurable.

While I have nothing against the iSilo developers I'd prefer that the document format was open. And I really like iSilo's command-line converter, its speed, the way it handles images, and the .ixl formatting system -- but I just feel locked in by the closed document format, the prospect of paying for upgrades sometime in the future, and the fact that it doesn't do anything (except automatic bookmark detection), that Plucker can't do.

Besides all that, I can share Plucker and Plucker documents without having to worry!

I tired Plucker once and found it extremly difficult to set up. Maybe thats not the case anymore. I've been really happy with iSiloX. It has only cost $10 for a upgrade, doesn't cost that much really.

RE: Plucker or Isilo?
fireproof @ 10/24/2003 6:40:23 PM #
I agree -- Plucker used to be difficult to set up, but the new Plucker Desktop is as easy as iSiloX.

And $10 isn't much for an upgrade (even after the $15 initial cost) but after two upgrades it could rankle a little. What about the third, or fourth upgrade? If you've got a lot of documents it might start to feel like extortion... :)

Anyway, they're both great tools, and there's lots to like about iSilo -- but it doesn't cost anything to try Plucker if you've already got iSilo, and I'm sure the Plucker team would value your feedback and suggestions.

I've tried both the latest versions of Plucker I could find and neither worked at full-screen on a T3.

AcidImage and WordSmith

Altema @ 10/23/2003 4:36:47 PM #
... now do Palm hi res+. Looks like they re-coded or enhanced the AcidImage as well, as load speed is *much* faster. WordSmith is my fave ebook reader, but I was toying with PalmReader until WordSmith was updated. Autoscroll with the new real estate is nice.

One that I'm waiting for is LauncherX. It feels kinda weird going between 320x480 apps when your launcher is only 320x320. But, they are working on it. Most of the

Funny how things change: "only 320x320"... LOL. Will we ever be satisfied?

RE: AcidImage and WordSmith
speedracer5 @ 10/23/2003 6:40:48 PM #
Launcher X will do full screen if you use the Beta they released for the Garmin units. You do need the two files (which are from Palm) that several software companies are sending out along with programs.

Can someone please tell me if you can read the installed ebooks that come with the palm on wordsmith instead of Palmreader? If so, how? If not, what file types do you have to look for to be able to read ebooks on wordsmith? Thanks

RE: AcidImage and WordSmith
bcombee @ 10/24/2003 3:39:04 AM #
WordSmith will read DOC files, but not Palm Reader files. Only Palm Reader and Palm Reader Pro handle those. DOC files are available from www.memoware.com and www.fictionwise.com, among other sources.

"WordSmith will read DOC files, but not Palm Reader files."

Yeah, I know. Fortunately all my ebooks (about 30+) so far have been available in doc format. I was recently going to try one ebook that was only available in secure format, but it seemed like they were saying you had to input your credit card number every time you read the thing, so that scared me off. PalmReader is on standby and ready for reload if needed.

What apps do VGA?

mikecane @ 10/23/2003 7:05:36 PM #
Oh, sorry. I meant this for the Toshiba 800/805 board.

RE: What apps do VGA?
bcombee @ 10/23/2003 7:19:25 PM #
I was thinking about that this morning. All the support is in Palm OS, at least at the API level, for 480x480. You could go to 480x640 and have a VG area that was half the size of current VG areas, or do 480x720 to scale up nicely. It would be a "triple density" mode. Is it needed? Probably not, but it would be nice to see that on a larger form-factor device, esecially a clamshell model.

I was just imagining what the battery life would be like for a VGA Palm with current battery technology. I 'd look forward more towards longer battery life than higher and higher resolutions, especially with 320 x 480 available now. I'll start dreaming of VGA if Palm can extend battery life back to V/Vx levels for a hi-res device.

Just my $0.02.

I disagree. The model you described above is the T|T 4 and it will be available in October, 2004. Palm's market share will be at around 40% of stand alone PDAs and 20% of the overall market if you include new smartphones as competition. That's if they fix their bugs and stop tarnishing the Palm name. Palm is starting to look like Cadillac compared to Sony's Lexus. More sophisticated buyers will start moving towards quality instead of the traditional "name" brand.

Palm and Sony should be embarassed by how cheap they are with the RAM on their PDAs. A showcase, premium-priced device like the Treo 600 should have been given at least 64 MB if the OS can handle it. The CLIE UX-50's usable RAM (what, around 1 MB?) is an even bigger joke, especially considering how that PDA is being positioned.

I thought T4 will be basic PXA 263 with 64MB and HVGA screen and will be out by April/May time frame. Have they delayed that again?

Was just joking about the 20% amrket share. POS probably will stay around 40%, while Palmone holding mid/high 35% by Q3.

Sony seems to be in total implosion mode.

I had heard that the T|T 4 was going to be shelved, but maybe it's back on again. I'm afraid it just won't be that competitive in six months, though.

I realize you were joking about the market share. But I was serious about the battery life figures. Strange how no one laughs about PPC battery life these days...

In that case, your posts should be deleted as well. I've seen many childish insults spouting from your mouth, and you found that perfectly acceptable. And yet you are offended by the remarks made against Hoplites? Nope, no double standard there. I am surprised you haven't been banned by now, since you are little more than a PPC troll like Ska.

Another type of post PIC cannot stand is negative financial data. Post: profitability data, marketshare data across time, list of Bugs and hardware glitches, and it'll be erassed immediate.

..and of course sardonic parody.

They aren't condusive to Palm economy, it's kinda like stalinistic state. The truth is state secret. heh heh...

Now that's a low blow. You've truly hurt my feelings and I expect you to apologize. Now.

PPC troll? Only in your fantasies. But I'm not so mindlessly devoted to Palm that I don't try other platforms. I've used pretty much every PDA OS that's ever been available, but have stuck with Palm because that's what works for me. But if Microsoft (or Symbian, or Linux, or Sponge Bob, or even CrApple) released a better OS tomorrow that did what I wanted, came on hardware I liked, and had the apps I need, I wouldn't think twice about switching. It's called being platform agnostic (look it up) and is what gives Palm executives nightmares.

Try to look at the bigger picture, Fooey. Like whether or not Palm can innovate, or maintain quality control, or fight off PPC and Symbian, or make it in the smartphone world. These questions are a bit more significant than things like whether or not the new CLIE has a flip cover or comes in an electric pink case.

And please don't take tongue in cheek posts to heart - doing so will land you in the asylum at a tender age. I wouldn't want to see that happen to you. I'd suggest you seek advice on this from well-known PIC contributor and author of several copyrighted articles, Mr. Mike C©.

Ouch. And I didn't realize Alexa was even still in business.

While PIC seems to have faded in the past couple of years - (remember good old, I.M. Anonymous?) - it looks like most remaining Palm sites aren't much better. Just look at what happened to PalmStation.com. Others sites have been bought out by PPC. Most regurgitate press releases as "news" or "reviews". All struggle for advertisers to pay the bills.

The sense of community that was there in the early days has evaporated. Malaise and ennui have set in. People have moved on. Doesn't bode well for the platform.

Hey, you psychotic bag of MS-centric sh*t, how dare you say that what I've REPEATEDLY experienced with PPCs isn't so. YOU might now have have come across this, but like most PPCers, you probably don't actually *DO* anything with that damned thing except consider it as gadgetry Viagra. I've yet to come across *ONE* PPC owner who does one QUARTER of the work I do on my lowly mono CLIE S320. All those early iPaq adopters were brainless dweebs who plopped in Microdrives and treated it as an iPod. And this is coming from someone who has been around *hundreds* of these people at *TWO* MS-sponsored PPC events here in NYC, where I made it a point to go around and ask people what they actually *did* with their PPCs (which were primarily iPaqs). I'm still laughing over the day one d*ckhead at a PPC user group asked if anyone actually *used* Pocket Word on their PPCs. No one said they did! So much for MS pitching it as a productivity tool. It's nothing but a shiny toy for brainless and balls-less boys.

I wrote it and I stand by it.

And if anyone from the "PalmOS camp" had trolled a PPC forum as *you* do, there'd be *worse* comments.

Just ask Foo how little it took for *him* to be banned from a site!

You PPC cretin. You MS flunky.

Foo, am I wrong in thinking you were banned for a time from either PPC Thoughts or another PPC site?

RE: What apps do VGA?
Foo Fighter @ 10/29/2003 10:01:46 PM #
No, I wasn't banned, but Jason Dunn did express a certain enmity towards me on a few occasions. Although I'm not well liked by him, I've never been banned from his site, or any other. Let's just say that if I left, I would not be missed too much.

Sort of like ska over here, eh?

(Not that you have ever acted like ska on PPC sites -- those cultists just can't stand a dissenting opinion... of *any* kind.)

It seems to me that games were fully omitted in the list. As for me Gem Slider 3 is one of the most successful games designed for HiRes and Sony Clie.

Indeed, nobody here seems to care for games

By the way Donna, would you drop in the adress
of this site? I'm fed up with low-res games!

Does Plucker Support 480x320 on T3?

Deslock @ 10/24/2003 10:01:17 AM #
Plucker 1.6 doesn't let me collapse the graffti area... I have the AppSlipRotate and StausBarLib installed, which allows other apps to run full-screen.

Has anyone else gotten the new version of Plucker to run full-screen?

Laurens @ 10/24/2003 11:43:43 AM #
Plucker 1.6 doesn't support 320x480. it was released before the T3 came to market. In a thread on usenet one of the Plucker team member promised to support the resolution in a future version.

MMPlayer

McMagnus @ 10/24/2003 10:29:26 AM #
MMPlayer does fullscreen (and rotation) on T3, Clie, UX and iQue.

It does fullscreen and rotate -- but does it otherwise actually *work*?!! I've *never* been able to get that thing to work!

Palm Reader Pro 2.2.9

amherst26 @ 10/24/2003 10:10:53 PM #
Palm Reader 2.2.9 is now available to read on a T3 in either the full screen mode or with the slider closed.

RE: Palm Reader Pro 2.2.9
nzjss @ 10/26/2003 11:14:15 PM #
Does v2.2.9 fix the problem in Ver 2.2.8 where you must read at 320x480 as with the slide closed 4~5 lines of every page are missed as the software does not adjust the view for 320x320 mode?
RE: Palm Reader Pro 2.2.9
nzjss @ 10/26/2003 11:22:20 PM #
To answer my own question - Yes v2.2.9 fixes the slider bug:

Palm Reader Pro 2.2.9
- Add support for reading books with the slider closed on Tungsten T3 handhelds.
- Add an option to turn off the underline on links (in the General Preferences dialog).
- Fix a bug where notes and highlights appear in sidebars and footnotes.
- Fix problems with five-way buttons on Tungsten, Zire and Treo handhelds.
- Requires 300K free memory.

Do AeroPlayer or Pocket Tunes support 320x480?

abischof @ 10/27/2003 10:48:46 AM #
Do any of the common MP3/Ogg players support the T3's 320x480 resolution yet? (And, if there're more MP3 players worth considering than just AeroPlayer and Pocket Tunes, please let me know.)

Solo @ 10/29/2003 8:27:33 PM #
PTunes is actually in beta to support the T3 320 X 480. As I understand it, support is good, but the next step is to have skin being able to take advantage of it...

Probably the same "problem" that Launcher X will encounter...
