Too bad the bottom doesn't slide to reveal a tasty fruit filling!

Mmmmm.... Tasty Palm....

Almond paste is also known as marzipan; now can I get an IPAQ-sized one?

"now can I get an IPAQ-sized one?"

Yes, but only for the newer models. The old version spoiled easily because of its shorter shelf life... (LOL)

I doesn't even have virtual graffiti. What a turn off.

This signature is witty. You like it.

Almond Paste Palm

I wonder if they'll have to refund the money in a few months because they discovered that it's not REAL almond paste (like whatever that handheld was that they made a "mistake" about the screen resolution. I hope that the static discharge from the hotsync cradle doesn't ruin the flavor. ;-)

Hehe, you mean the m130?

I like the idea of eddible PDAs . . . but almond paste isn't necessarily my first choice. Start talking chocolate (but you have to be careful not to over clock it or anything; might start to melt!) or a sweet-tart type candy and you've cought my attention (and my wallet)

Mmmm . . . yummy palmies,

I love my Palm . . . do you?

Edible PDA
sralmas @ 12/4/2002 5:31:13 PM #
That would surely solve my problem with Sony's 3 month product cycle. Heck, I can just eat my old Clie every time Sony comes out with a new model. The best part is that the "old" Clie won't even be stale yet :-)

I couldn't agree more!

I already ordered three... I mean...

Ediable PDA is in China for a long long time

dhchung @ 12/4/2002 7:15:56 PM #
I saw them more than a year ago. Buy one when you are in the business trip in china! They are much much cheaper than 11.95 euros!

PalmSide @ 12/5/2002 2:27:21 AM #
but not with the best almond paste around!
hab garnicht gewusst, dass almond paste marzipan ist... man lernt nie aus!

is there any article without someone criticising?

Hah hah... just when you turn the box over and the "Made in China" will be on the back :)

Love isn't about becoming somebody else's "perfect person." Rather, it's about finding someone who helps you become the best person you can be.

Cannot find that interview with Dubinsky

Where is that interview? The URL does not lead to the corresponding article!
Maybe I am blind? I don't hope so!

RE: Cannot find that interview with Dubinsky
amflores @ 12/5/2002 10:07:42 AM #
neither do I, it seems the article has been moved :(
...just wanted to read about another viewpoint of the wooden palm -the almond palm wasn´t enough!

Here are a couple of the articles. I think they're both pretty old, but interesting.
