    What AvantGo channels do you use and appreciate?

    I don't get it wirelessly, so I get my news from other sources. I've mostly got humor channels and tech channels:

    Uselessknowledge.com
    Joke a Day
    Radio Locator Travel Guide
    The Funniest
    The Onion
    ZDNet to go*
    Wired
    PCWorld
    VisorCentral

    *What happened to ZDNet to-go? It used to be full featured with news, reviews, downloads, etc., then became only news, now has nothing?!

    while this topic has been asked countless times and there are quite a few channels that are really good....let's say you can only name 2 channels....your BEST 2 channels...

    Business Thinkers Digest would be my first. I've read and been directed to more insightful, informative articles from this channel than any other website on the internet!

    Yesterday, i subscribed to 'Sound and Vision'. Unbelievable channel. From the great articles with half decent pictures! to the library of past articles that you can select to have uploaded to your device on the next sync, this channel has REALLY impressed me!

    anybody else have the ability to narrow it to only 2?
    wow, it's been awhile.....things have REALLY changed...why is my Visor Edge still in my hand? Will a Treo fit better?

    I like Maxim and CNet News.com. I also like the Useless Knowledge and Horoscope (Astronet) channels.

    My best two would be CNet and either Joke A Day (Mature) or VisorCentral.

    I've decided to become enigmatic.

    VisorCentral is not updated enough, and half the story links do not work.

    While we are on this subject though, does anyone know if/when TreoCentral (and the mobile boards) will be created into AvantGo?

    How much memory does that all take up?

    Roughly around a meg. Right now, the channels are 740k (max size 1575k) and the reader itself is 2-300k.

    It is the biggest memory hog on my Visor Deluxe, but is well worth it. I read most of the channels, and during school, I read all of them (sometimes twice)

    If your wondering, I have a 64mb CF card/matchbook drive, so that is what I keep my ebooks/games/dictionary/misc programs on. I am using about 6.5mb on the Visor, and about 25mb on the card. The other big programs on my RAM would be Action Names and Wordsmith
