Yay! Another accessory that's incompatible with new versions. Any chance of them making a new one for the SL's?

It's all about selling you more "stuff". They are selling consumer products. First you buy the newest PDA, then you have to buy a new set of peripheral, then they discontinue your PDA and convince you that you need yet another new PDA, then you have to buy another new set of peripherals, then they.... Keep consuming. It's the "American way."

Are there any options for a modem (not wireless).
The ability to pick up my email with a handheld is important.

If not any modems that connect to landlines, what phones can use infrared connections - what services support this? Are there cables that connect to cell phones without infrared?
