    Depends on whose funeral it is.

    being deaf, I get a lot of leeway in clicking along on my treo. events for kids, when my kids aren't there performing, I do stuff on my treo. must be nice having that bit of quilty-free moment on one's pda.

    again, we don't know the store of this person, was he dragged to wedding, etc...

    typed this while I was at kids awana night waiting for them to finish....

    Depends on what kind of wedding. In my traditional Chinese style wedding, the guests are expected to chip in the wedding "gift fee". Hey I won't care less if you watch video on my wedding.

    That just make you an incredible nerd.

    Change this to the Super Bowl and let's see how many people here wouldn't be trying to find a way to watch the game. :-)

    You get dragged to a wedding where you know absolutely no one. You're stuck at a chapel for an hour before the wedding even starts because your spouse/mate always has to be early. You've never been to a function where you just wished you were somewhere else?

    What is wrong with him watching the game? It's not like he's in Germany plotting the death of an innocent polar bear cub.

    My wife and I have been together 30 years, as of this July. She'd get a chuckle out of this entire scenario. Hell, during football season she'd be fighting me for the ear piece. LOL

    My faith is restored in approximately 70% of humanity. To the rest of you, would you do this in a meeting with your boss? With his/her boss? If not, why not? Is the treat of consequence the only thing that makes you do the right thing? If so, that's pretty sad.

    You still have not proven its the "right thing". Would it also be wrong to read the TreoCentral forums while you are waiting for the bride to show up? Are you also not supposed to speak to the person next to you, and should you be taking notes from the preaching? You still have not explained exactly what the offense is. Whats wrong with a bit of multi-tasking?

    Who would schedule their wedding on Super Bowl Sunday??? That's just insane!

    I have no problem with anyone doing whatever they want before and after the ceremony. But, I still find it hard to believe you guys can't give...what? At the most, an hour of your time to show respect for the happy couple? C'mon...

    Give the guy a break, there isn't one single straight man in the world that actually enjoys weddings, much less wants to be at one.

    The real rude part was scheduling the wedding during Final Four week.

    An hour is a long time, especially if its a very boring hour. I say 10 minutes tops.

    That would be one lucky cat to bring either one of them to a wedding.



    Sorta like that dude in the movie "The Girl Next Door" Lucky SOB.

    Im getting married in June and I can say if one of my boys out in the crowd did the same thing during the ceremony I wouldnt care. My fiance' might but I wouldnt.

    To Munk's post, straight guys may not like the CEREMONY but Im sure most like the weddings with open bars and the reception after.

    Yep, for 10 years now. Cant say I paid much attention to the attendees at the ceremony. Surely one would only have eyes for your partner then.

    What would be an incredible sin would be not to put your phone on vibrate.

    Nor have you addressed this on the actual blog. If your faith in humanity is so small than why arent you or why didnt you do the stand up thing and post this reaction to the actual person instead of complaining behind this person's back?

    Isnt there a bit of a double standard here? If you want others to live such upstanding lives and be so moral than why havent you presented your points on the blog?

    Probably because it would be a useless and irrelevant post! Palm doesn't want you using their blog to start arguments about appropriate conducts at weddings, they want their blog to be used for *gasp* discussion of Palm products!

    My how Americentric this discussion of weddings is. In some other cultures weddings can last several days (and I have been to a few). Oftentimes bride and groom must sit the entire time wearing uncomfortable ceremonial garments and headgear while sitting very still on thrones at the front of the room. What's so hard about foregoing some personal entertainment for an hour or so and trying to be a gracious guest?

    I once went to a wedding where the reception went on and on endlessly, when everyone finally sobered up 15 years later the "happy couple" was divorced!! Hey wait a minute that was MY wedding!!


    OK. IMHO the slingplayer at the wedding is ok during the reception but not during the ceremony.

    Some people get SlingPlayer just for times like that.
