    Now I'm one of those sad people who I used to feel sorry for. I have found myself sitting there, staring at my Treo doing whatever - email, web, adjusting preferences...

    I used to make fun of my friends for 'texting' all the time - oblivious to everything around them and arguably not even present.

    Am I cool now, or a dork?

    I think you're cool!! I play with my 650 all the time! I had the 600 first and I played with it too but for some reason I just cant seem to get over the screen! It's just amazing! I tend to go to a website the same one over and over to see the speed test for my connection, I just want to keep seeing that big 100K or more speed! Even at work I find myself checking my email all the time, just so I can se the 650 in my hand!

    Yes you are a dork, however you could haved assumed that just based on your visiting this site on a regular basis.

    That being said, you being a dork is not a bad thing. Everyone on this site and any like it are dorks, myself included. However I think the term "GEEK"would be more approporiate.

    I was waiting for the level of network integration that I knew would someday come. That day is here! (I hear trumpets). I'm on board. Now I just need network access better than 56k, gps built in, better out-of-the box apps, and a screen that's just a little bit bigger. That's not too much to ask, right?

    Treo700?

    Yah know, the funny thing now if you hang with youth these days. Geek is finally cool. (Dork is not Geek and I think "geek" describes it better than dork.)

    I'd like to think we are all 'Geeks' not Dorks. I am proud to admit that I am a 'Geek', but I would never admit to being a 'Dork!'

    let's see how did that go. .. oh yes.

    here are the definitions I like to use:

    nerd - an intelligent person who uses his smarts in a productive manner.
    geek - an intelligent person who squanders away his smarts.
    dork - a non-intelligent person.
