He wrote Perl that looked suspiciously like C code in 1998, while working as an intern, and has been trying to cure that bad habit ever since.

say wha ?

[ #21199 ]

Palm released the T-5. Not amazing, but I was definitely considering an upgrade when this struck me..

The T-5 uses flash memory. You know, the sort that has limited write/erase cycles. And they apparently have their OS and all the software installed on it ? How long do they expect the fancy flash memory to last ? one year ? less ? and it costs $400. I think I'll keep my existing Palm and buy a 256mb thumbdrive.

Am I missing something obvious or do they expect people to toss their PDA out after one year or two ? And it seems to require RealPlayer being installed on the desktop. To which I reply: hell,no. That just ain't gonna happen.

If this is the upgrade path I'm being offered, I will seriously start considering PocketPC. I cringe when I think of it now, but I will consider it. Thanks for nothing, PalmOne.
