Geeesh! Yep, that'll make me write em' off ... "I didn't get a 1:1,000 chance of a FREE device". People hammer you for everything, so you celebrate by giving the $600 things away and people still complain. Phenominal mindsets I must say.
Actually, they are just clearing out reserves for the Treo 670 with WM2005! :-oPat Horne; www.churchoflivingfaith.com
"50% off of a new Treo Purchase"
Is P1 trying to get rid of the Treo 650s for the Win Mob version of the Treo 670?The world will end in 2006. Just as it was predicted in the bible along with the release of Microsoft Longhorn.... :p
I'm not saying they're not doing a good thing, but honestly, not being a US resident, I do feel a bit sad about not being able to enter the contest. You know, everyone should be allowed to dream...
I guess Austrlia includes Kiwi teams in the NRL, and World Series Cricket is just that - teams from all over the world. Hmmm. Hands up the Americans that know that the US has a Rugby team that competes in the Rugby Sevens tournament? If the team is not #1, they just don't want to know about it.
Don't worry about the Treo giveaway. The Aussie model has the pixels reversed anyway.

Gekko, please be silent, lest you do further damage to the already mangled reputations of the 67% percent of Americans that feel we've squandered our respect around the world.

Logical assumption. It would have been nice to offer it everywhere that it's sold, but they would have to go through 6 months of red tape to determine which countries they could invite to participate. There's no way they could do every country no matter how hard they tried, so they probably took the easy route and said US only since that is where they are based. The Treo is not actually manufactured in the US though, is it?
and America lives off the rest of the worlds' oil

Hey, I'm impressed. National voter turnout 58-60% (why no accurate numbers?) ... so taking the BEST number of 60%, means that Bush was elected by a resoundng 30.6% of the population, compared to Kerry's 28.8%. Which means that APATHY WON BY A LANSLIDE OF 40% (woo hoo ...). Thank God for Demoncracy and the shining example the US gives the rest of us unwashed masses.
Back to the Treo Giveaway ... its over. Time for bed.
Relating all of this back to the Treo promotion, it is disappointment that the promotion is US only but no doubt PalmOne has different priorities in different countries, regions etc. It's true that we live in a global economy but a global company needs to take account regional variations if it's to be a success.
I'm sure PalmOne will do promotions where and when the conditions are appropriate.
That's a classic. But I still wonder if the square screen works in landscape?Pat Horne; www.churchoflivingfaith.com
...then explain to us all here why the competition doesn't run in Andorra and Monaco, where they pay no income tax at all?
Which, RhinoSteve, means they pay less tax than you do in the US.
Oh and RhinoSteve, I'll leave you with some homework:http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tax_rates_around_the_world
RhinoSteve, you'd be able to if you didn't have to pay all those taxes in the USA!
I have been to the wilds and know the myths from the truth. How about you? My guess you are still in school writing shareware.
Just for the record, you've got it wrong - AGAIN!
We'll leave it at that as I'm sure everyone's bored of us by now. Let's all stick to the facts and stick to the PalmOS as best as we can.
As Eddie Izzard said, singing the US anthem is all about affirmation and denial ... if you can be positive you are right, then deny anything is wrong, you can pretty much sing any words and make it sound convincing.~ "Don't be too proud of this technological terror you've constructed." - DV ~
If you know you're going to sing a song in front of a bunch of people, MAKE SURE YOU LEARN/KNOW THE WORDS. If not, sit down and shut the **** up.
Gekko - I think once again YOU have missed the point. WTF has this got to do with a Treo giveaway? How many of your posts are even remotely on topic??
Ah - this story mentioned Canada, and there were people moaning that this giveaway was US only ... OK. Tenuous link at best.
Back to the topic - did ANYONE win anything or receive a discount message int heir email?~ "Don't be too proud of this technological terror you've constructed." - DV ~
No kidding at all.
It would just join my Palm Pilot in the basement on the shelf.
Besides, if I went back to 320*320, I'd have to resize all of my 320*480 jpegs that I use for slideshows on my T3. Not worth the headaches and I never win anything anyway ;-)
------------------------Press release: CUPERTINO, California — February 11, 2005 — Apple® announced today that Steve Jobs will begin selling his own feces to Apple Cultists beginning March 1. Apple's new iPoo™ lineup is expected to easily surpass the iPod shuffle as the company's most popular product. Yes, Apple Cultists can already easily create their own iPoo™, but feces didn't seem cool until Jobs told them it was cool. Remember, kids: the ONLY cool feces is Jobs' highly individualistic, rebellious iPoo™ (coming soon in six different colors/flavors, including the red [hematochezia] and black [melena] U2 GI bleed model)
