1000th News Story! and PC Expo
According to the auto-incrementing database counter this is our 1000th news story. To mark the occasion I thought it would be nice to go over the history of the site and it's current status. Before I go into that, I wanted to mention that I will be attending the PC Expo on Wednesday. If anyone would like to put a face with the site or just chat at the Expo feel free to drop me a line. If OmniSky works inside of Jatvis, you can mail me on the show floor. I'll probably spend most of my time around the various Palm exhibits (handhelds are supposed to steal the show, you know).
First things first, I would like express many thanks to EVERYONE who helps make this site one of the best in the handheld industry. Specifically, in no particular order: Mike Cane, Ed Hardy, Robert Zach, Michael Ethertton, Sintaks, the OmniSky Corporation, Alan C. Brawn, my friends and family, all our sponsors and everyone that sends in stories, posts comments and all of the daily readers. Without your help and support this site wouldn't be the same.
A little background info...
I started the PalmInfocenter as a small hobby back in January of 1999. I used my old earthlink webspace to host the site and after only 3 months and 9,000 hits/month I was starting to max out on the 1 gig of bandwidth a month limit. In August of 1999 PalmInfocenter.com opened it's doors to the world with an improved interface, detailed reviews and articles, comment forums, an AvantGo channel and the Palm Graveyard. Nowadays the site serves almost 20 gigs of info a month to over 25,000 palm enthusiasts a day. The Palm and heldheld industry has really gained allot of momentum since early '99 and things look great for the Palm Economy with a new devices coming from Palm, Sony and maybe Handspring in the fall and the whole platform moving to wireless access. Expect to see a ton of new announcements and products from PC Expo. We’ll be there to bring you the latest from New York.
