    After the 700w announcement it was clear to me that the Palm OS is on a downward slide and Micro$oft will win the war. (As they do)

    I am no Microsoft lover. The more I program using their OS and tools the more I believe they have an insecure OS. (www.securitysoftware.cc)
    The fact is that Windows Mobile 5 is now good enough to do everything the Palm OS does for me on my 650. Since Microsoft will continue to outspend on OS development by oh about 10x or so the Palm OS is doomed.

    Also, since there is no indication that the 700w will have built in wifi I have no reason to wait for a Palm device.

    I'll probably get Sprints PPC-6700 or wait for the HTC Wizard but it won't be long.

    Too bad since I haven't found a Windoze Smartphone site that come close to the value of Treocentral. (sigh)

    As a developer, you will love xda-developers.com Its a website dedicated to hacking HTC phone devices. It has a huge membership, but also some very dedicated characters who always seem to come through for the community (kid of like shadowmite here).

    Give it a look.

    NRG,
    Must you quote the whole post everytime, whether it's a one sentence post or a clip and paste of the new testament? Please just quote the relevant parts please. You're ruining my forum reading experience.

    pertinax - I'm confused.

    Are you jumping off the Palm OS Ship, or are you jumping off The Jumping off the Palm OS ship? This post's title is confusing.

    I can't tell whether that's early Tony Orlando or Weird Al Yankovich.
    Remember, the "P" in PDA stands for personal.
    If it works for you, it is "P"erfect.

    I think it is Al Gore before he became a politician, somehow entertainment was not in his future.

    This is where it came from http://discussion.treocentral.com/sh...ad.php?t=74694

    Hey gfunk, it looks like it's still there. He's a Danish hit sensation named Tommy. I was hooked on that music video for the longest time. I HAD to watch it at least once a day for a month. Can't explain the affliction other than he looked so damn happy. Then I found out he commited suicide. Karma I guess.

    The person asked me to remove his name, I emailed Treocentral, but I know you have the ability to do this. Thanks.
