Quickies: Bluetooth MemStick, April Fools, Palm Ads, and More

The Hong Kong webstore Brando is offering the Bluetooth Memory Stick. It isn't listed on the site but the price is $212 USD, which includes shipping to US via FedEx.. This is the Japanese version so all software is in that language. -nicos

While long-time readers may recall that in the past PIC has celebrated April Fools Day with joke articles, sorry, there won't be any this year. -Ed

The recently announced TV spots that Palm Inc. is running as part of its current ad campaign are on the Palm's advertising page. -Cyruski

PalmQ Online has pictures of a disassembled Handspring Treo. -Vladimir

Plug-in error?

Is anyone else having problems with the link to Palm's new ad? I keep getting a "Plug-in error" message in IE6.

Yep, was having the same problem, too. From the looks of it, the movie wasn't linked to correctly. After a few tries, I figued out the actual address for the movie. Check it out here:

Didn't get it the first time, either.

The link that worked for me is: http://www.palm.com/community/advertising/spring.mov

Also you may need to download a free copy of the Quicktime player if you don't have it yet. By default Windows Media Player will attempt to load the file, but will not find the appropriate codecs to read it as it is in the Quicktime Movie format.

Wow it works

Are the english drivers really included on the cd?
And another question: what about the software? Is it in english or japanese? Do I need this software, that is included? What kind of software is this?
IŽd like to hotsync via bluetooth and make connections between the clie and my cellphone.

Best regards

I have the BT driver installed in my T615C and it can reconize my Ericsson T68i. Can you show me how to configure it to connect to internet through the phone.

Best Regards,
