The Cult of the Palm Pilot
An article from the Boston Phoenix

The Zen of Palm "Describes design philosophies and practices for developing Palm OS (Operating System) applications." While written for Palm software applications designers, it will give the reader a look behind the Design Philosophy of the Palm Operating System. You don't write "Bloatware" for a Palm. This book explains why. (Redmond will never have to worry about us) HTML Version

The Treo/Earing Hanging Up Problem
When the Treo hangs up in the middle of a call.
    When you're talking on your Treo 600, does it hang up on you in the middle of the call? You might have what's called "The Earing Problem". That is when your earing taps against the on-screen "Hang-Up" button, and it does just that - it hangs up the call. The thing to do is to Disable Touchscreen during phone calls.
    Visit the "Prefs" (Preferences) application. Tap the Drop Down Menu in the upper left hand corner. Tap on "Keyguard". Select the two Checkboxes under "Disable touchscreen when:" that are marked "Incoming Calls Received", and "On A Call". This means that you won't be able to tap the buttons on your screen to "Hang Up", switch beteeen "Speakerphone" and "Handset", and the other buttons that will come up on the screen. How to activate them? Use the 5-Way Navigastor to slip right and left to highlight the button, then hit the Select button in the middle of the Navigator to select the highlighted button.

"Palm OS for Linux" has been announced

The Business Card Trick
How to create, and beam your business card from your Palm, to your collegue's Palm with a minimum of stylus taps.

How to replace Grafitti 2 with Original Grafitti
Get back to what you're used to! Now that I've supplied the link, let me talk you out of using it. Don't forget the Power Stroke (middle of the screen, very bottom to very top) that will get you the "Graffitti Chart". Just as we tell Newbies to learn Grafitti, learning Grafitti 2 is just more useful. and the trick is, draw LOWER case characters, not Upper Case like we're used to. And two strokes for i, k, t, and x.

Palm's Tip Of The Day
changed daily, with links to Tips & Tricks for individual PDA models.

Things Cheshire Does With His Palm
  • I have an Address or Contact listing with a Last name of "* If found, pls call" (yes, it begins with an astrisk - Shift-8), under Title, I have "Cheshire", and under Home Phone Number, I've got exactly that, my home number. If someone hits the Address Book button, they find the entry at the top of the list. They don't have to know to look for the "Owner" preference.
  • I keep my charger at work. My Tungsten™ T2 sits on the cradle, with the Power preference set to "Remain on while in charger". It sits there as my Desk Clock, and is right there when I need it. At home, I'll put it on the HotSync® Cable to HotSync when I remember to (or when there's info I need), but I always need to HotSync at the office. And that's where I always want a handheld that is hot off the charger with a full battery. Especially when I leave the office at the end of the day when I might want to beam my Business Card at a party, a chance meeting in a bar, or at a late meeting. My habit now is to squeeze the belt pouch or pocket where the Palm lives, and if it isn't there, reach for the cradle.

What does "Open Box" mean at The Palm Store?
"Open Box" items are those handhelds that have been returned to Palm for one reason or another, refurbished if necessary, and made available for resale. They are offerred for sale in the Factory Outlet section of The Palm Store web site.

How do I do Grafitti Shortcuts on a Treo Keyboard?
This one's prettey interesting. You know those "Shortcuts" you did in Grafitti with that special "Looping L" (lower case script L)character? Well it's still here. You hit the letter "S" followed by the "alt/0" Key, and a short list of alternate characters comes up. Hold down the "Down" side of the 5-Way navigator until it reaches the Looped character on the bottom of the list. Press "Center" to select it, them type "dts" for "Date Time Stamp", or whatever other shortcut you've got set up under "Preferences".

What is Bluetooth?
"Bluetooth® Wireless Technology" is a method of replacing serial interface cables with a "data radio" connection that allows "paired" devices to communicate with each other. The "pairing" process means that only those bluetooth device you allow to connect to your device, can connect. The "passkey" you enter in the Pairing process is used as an encryption key for the information sent over the data circuit.

Pocket PC handhelds against the Palm ones (no pun intended), with 
advantages and disadvantages of each. The conclusion? If you are 
after gaming, multimedia, good WiFi+Bluetooth support, a lot of 
accessories and versatility, go with Pocket PC. If you are after 
small and stylish devices with good battery life, simple interface 
and simple PIM apps, go with PalmOS."
