    I just got an email from Handspring stating that I won a Treo autographed by Jeff Hawkins! (I had entered by registering for the newsletter on the Handspring site.)

    Talk about conflict...I just switched over to a Clie in December. Now I have 4-6 weeks trying to decide whether or not to go with the Treo or the Clie -- or to convince my wife to use the Treo!

    Any opinions?

    Ohhh...I misunderstood. I thought Miardu meant there was someone else who won the same contest I won (there were 5 given away). I was well aware, and I was quite jealous, of dietrichbohn's victory!

    True but is autographed good or bad? Is it automatically worth more because it is one of only five? I would almost feel guilty letting it get a scratch on it! Am I supposed to not use it and leave it sitting in the box in mint condition?

    Cool...at least somebody actually wins those things.

    My wife wouldn't require any convincing. She saw one on TechTV the other day and thought it was quite neat. I told her if she really wanted one, she should probably wait until Christmas when the color ones would be out and tested a while (since Voicestream is evidently finally available in our area).

    Can I have my wife call your wife? Just tell her not to mention what it might go for on ebay!

    Autographed. Man, I got screwed.

    Congrats... get your wife to use it. Mine is getting my old Prism once the treo arrive (BTW: let me know when you get yours, I'll bet a nickel its before me), but I'm willing to bet she'll want one to reduce the clutter in her purse.

    I am willing to bet that the autographed Treo would be worth at least 50% more than the current no activation going price. I believe that is $549

    Yeah, but value doesn't become money until the buyer says so. So, if you find someone willing to pay that $800 or so, let me know, because my wife and I would love a DV camcorder to film the child we are about to have!

    Maybe we can have marcus send it around to entire VC staff for each of us to sign it. Then, not only would it be autographed, it would be the most traveled Treo, too (remember, ToolkiT lives down under).

    Of course, who knows when you'd actually see the thing...

    You know what though... While I might end up being the last stop on the "Treo Tour" as I live within 20? miles of diet, You can sure bet I'll be "testing" it out to make sure it "works"... Perhaps we SHOULD hand deliver it

    AAAHHHH!!!

    If Miradu can pop the hotsync connector off of a Prism, who knows what he'd do to a treo?
  18. #18  
    They did redesign the Treo's hotsync conntetor due to people likeme breaking it off :-D besides dietrichbohn, I've done much worse, like knocking a capacitor off the motherboard so I now have dcreased battery life.. or how about breakign the screen in a way that the digitizer was fine, the prism was fine but the backlight was killed?

    you konw what.. I probably shouldn't be bragging about those incidents. time to go admire myself in the mirror with my new shaved head.. it looks so WEIRD!

    maybe when you're older you can see it....

    I finally got my autographed Treo today!

    I'll try to get some pictures posted when I get the chance, but most of my time is being occupied by my new 3 day old daughter!
