uh, I don't know if I want to know where you're going with this one, but lets keep this thread PG friendly

Sorry.

It's included in the "Transitioning to and Getting the Most From Your Open Box P1 Handheld Kit."

Small additional charge of course.

For those that didn't get the joke -

Palm is screwing you in the *** if you buy the T5 or T650 but at least they're giving you some free lube in the deal so it's a little less painful!

Final comment on this one--Ryan, sorry but I just couldn't resist:

Gekko, did you know that male pigs (flying ones or otherwise) have corkscrew-shaped "you know whats"? Yes indeed. I read it myself in the Straight Dope. So better make it two bottles! I just opened my Swiss Army knife, took a look at the corkscrew and thought of a T5 stylus!

Sanity questions
borgiaX @ 12/6/2004 10:56:50 PM #
Sanity dosnt preclude passion which may or may not overide the
pretense to logic that we say guides our purchasing decisions.
There is no absolute measure of satisfaction, is there ?

> Sane people don't follow the dictates of anonymous internet posters.

My name is Eric Lyons. I'm a 35 year old Palm OS software developer living in Atlanta, GA.

Over the last four years, I have developed Palm OS applications for various small companies here in the Atlanta area. I'm currently developing an application for the healthcare industry. I was also a contributing author to the book "Palm OS Web Application Developer's Guide" for author Ben Combee. (Hi, Ben!)

Constructive criticism should be a component of discussions on internet forums. I too am concerned with recent the product offerings of PalmOne and PalmSource.

However, if PalmOne and PalmSource are too far gone in the minds of some posters, why are they still here? PalmOne and PalmSource aren't listening to their recommendations. Why do they continue to post? Why go down with the ship? Why support the losing team?

The more they post, the more they express their obsessive love of PalmOne and the Palm OS.

Hi, Eric. Do you use KY Jelly? (Do you even need it anymore?) Stay tight, never choke™*

Someone needs to rip Ed Colligan, Eric Benhamou, David Nagel, Jeff 'n' Donna, Richard Bradley, Pépé Gassee, and the rest of the Apple Dumpling Gang a "new one". I'd nominate Mike Cane, but I hear even Viagra can't help the Old Guy. Maybe he could use a Strap-On? Or turn his Palm™ into a Fist™?

It's a wonder Michael Mace has the guts to keep popping up here trying to spin all of Palm's latest disasters.

This is the belly of the PalmOS fandom beast.

Bonus special upgrade offer

pkuhns @ 12/6/2004 2:00:25 PM #
Purchase a Zire 31 and get a free former PalmOne employee as your personal chauffeur!

Nokia 3650 bluetooth magnate

Open box?

Strider_mt2k @ 12/6/2004 4:16:08 PM #
Open box?

Don't they need all those for warranty repairs?

Now you can own something someone returned in disgust.
What a deal.

Thanks P1!

Now about that lubricant...



IF Only...

CADJedi @ 12/6/2004 4:32:04 PM #
All these PalmOne deals would be cool IF ONLY they were making something I actually wanted. I fully intended to purchase the T5 until it was released and I saw it was actually the E2.

I realize that P1's new emphasis is on Smartphones, but does it make sense just to abandon the PDA space to their competition? I don't want a Smartphone and I can't picture that I EVER will (screen is too small among other things). Will P1 release a "powerful" handheld for its loyal users who don't want a Treo?

I have purchased 8 Palm handhelds for myself over the years... I guess I'll have to stray from Palm and try a Zodiac!

Thanks for nothing P1,

CADJedi

As crazy as it sounds, if I had to go out today and buy a NEW P1 handheld (as in, one that's still "officially" in their catalog and in production (no T3 or T|C) I'd go for the silver Z72 or the Zire 31 is $ was tight. The 72 has BT and good ol' DRAM and aside from the rotten camera, seems to be pretty decent. That's actually a pretty decent price for it on P1's web store.

I have yet to see one a Z72 SE in person but I imagine its silver is cosmetically identical to the "naked" pre-peeled blue Z72. I never thought the day would come when a Zire model was more appealing to me than anything the "flagship" Tungsten model. Oh how the mighty have fallen!

Why no Gold Styli for T|T5 or Treo?!

vesther @ 12/6/2004 4:47:02 PM #
C'Mon, let's see a Gold Stylus for the Tungsten T5 and the Treo 600 and 650, shall we?

I would like to see palmOne pull off a Gold-Plated Styli for the Tungsten T5 and the Treo 650 and Treo 600...Having no Gold-Plated Styli for the Treo line and/or Tungsten T5 is just ridiculous....

Tungsten T5 with a free Wi-Fi SDIO Card would be nice and would kick a lot of butt.

Powered by Palm OS since March 2002

RE: Why no Gold Styli for T|T5 or Treo?!

They had them for the Zires, but the gold flaked off.

Now you can get a limited edition silver one though...
;)

Gold Stylus with Vaseline ozzing out of......

oceanman177 @ 12/7/2004 11:39:57 AM #
People, people, people. Yea, Palm does offer some pretty Cheesy Deals, yet it seems that every posting on this board puts down Palm One! This is the Palm Infocenter site! Perhaps all of you should create an " I Hate Palm " site and dispense your drivel elsewhere. ;#

RE: Gold Stylus with Vaseline ozzing out of......
CADJedi @ 12/7/2004 12:27:52 PM #
I, for one, don't hate Palm... just the opposite I LOVE Palm. I have purchased many PDA's, encouraged friends to use them, have purchased TONS of software, and have tailored my entire time/project managment system around Palm.

Its just SOOO discouraging to have invested so much time, thought, and money into something... be ready to upgrade and spend more money... and see so little (actually nothing) worth upgrading too.

If I didn't love Palm I would just buy a PPC and forget about it. Instead I'm a glutton for punishment and I wait for the "next great PDA" only to be disappointed time and again.

oh well...

Okay, please tell us all the positive news on the PalmOS handheld front:

Well, to me it seems more like half of the posts are attacks on palmOne, while the other half are personal attacks on various PIC users.

A classic case of a small group of loudmouths ruining it for everyone else, I'm afraid. :-/

I heartily agree there.

Opinions are opinions, and that's what we're here for god or bad.


The personal insults should be dealt with harshly and fast.
