Sorry Ed, but you failed to mention that the Visor ClipKee was canned because the company no longer views the Visor line as a reliable source of sales ( http://pdabuzz.com/#newsitem1009574703,850, ). I think it is pretty newsworthy when peripheral manufacturers begin to shy away from a product. That is the real story here.

Interesting PDABuzz article but I think they are making a mountain out of a molehill. Having one company that has never actually released any products decide to not release a Visor version does not make a trend. Now if someone significant made a similar announcement, like, say, Think Outside, that would be important. But as it is, it's not.

PDABuzz news articles seem to have an anti-Palm bias recently.

Anti-Palm bias

In the psychiatric world, we call this kind of thinking "splitting." Why is every editorial or article is either pro-Palm or anti-Palm? Do you make a little mark to count up each? Does the Star Wars story appeal to you as a model of the way the world works?

BTW, you can probably count this as anti-Palm since I was defending PDA Buzz against your accusation that PDABuzz news articles seem to have an anti-Palm bias recently.

Recently? PDABuzz has had an pro-PPC slant for as long as I've been reading it. I think they'd be all PPC if there were enough people interested.

This thread seems to be developing an anti-non-PDA Buzz anti-Palm bias, over the past several posts (people being against my being against the idea that PDA Buzz is anti-Palm. What's up with that?

HandEra rebate

So where did the info on the rebate for the recharger come from? It isn't on CompUSA's site, from what I can see, and it wasn't in the flier I picked up last Saturday. Was there a new flier on Sunday listing the rebate? I'm going to be near a CompUSA tonight, so will I really be able to pick up one there and get the rebate?

It's on the Sunday flyer.

(Stupid) Semi-Off-Topic Handera Sync Question

I.M. Anonymous @ 12/31/2001 7:01:26 PM #
Let's say I finally break down and buy one of those cutting edge 330's for a cool $250 while waiting for the m525 to be released (say, around May.... 2003). Can I sync the Handera to my PC using the Palm Desktop software for my Vx, or can I sync the Vx to the Handera Desktop, or am I stuck using two desktop programs?

You sinc your Vx to desktop. Then sinc the 330. It will be the same ID as your Vx. You do not need to change anything on your desktop.
