    What is the easiest way to get all these websites into the phone other than typing each one into Blazer Favorites? I downloaded the posted zipped file that was full of links and copied the contents into a memo thinking I could launch them as hyperlinks. Memo just sees them as text.

    www.skweezer.net a very cool portal...enter a web address via the search on this page and skweezer "optimizes" the page for PDA's.

    Here's the whole skinny on Skweezer

    I've played with skweezer a bit, and will continue to check it out. I'd still prefer to have the links on my 650 just in case skweezer isn't around or available when I need it.

    I read where kvcobra created "custom links files" but I don't know what this means or how do it.

    Hey guys, check this out. It's a project called Webbee.
    There are java apps (jar) that use this webbee proxy type system. You'll have to install Java on your Treo to download and use them (I've had Java on my Treo 650 the whole time to use Reqwireless Webviewer.)
    :http://www.palmone.com/us/support/jvm/

    Here's the URL to webbee, I found it by accident looking for mobie showtimes on the new google mobile web search.

    Or from blazer:

    Wish I could take the credit, but several folks have posted this trick previously. Basically, if you know a little HTML, you can create your own home page, store it on your card, and point Blazer to it. Like bookmarks or pa1mOne/Yahoo portals but quicker and much more customizable.

    Actually, "Now You Know Treo" describes the same idea, but they talk about posting the page on a remote server, which is slower and has no benefit unless you want to share it with other users. And if you really want t et slick, you can include app launchers within your home page.

    See this thread for more details.

    And I hope to share my mini site with all of you fine folks in due time. I have mine published on my web site and keep a mirrored copy on my SD card.
    This way when I do a hard-reset or upgrade to a new device, I don't have to worry about losing my bookmarks. Also it's easier to edit the bookmarks with frontpage than on the Treo's UI.

    kvcobra, thanks for pointing me in the right direction. If I understand correctly I can create a web directory in the root of my card and place the html you provided in that directory. Then type the address file:///web/filename.htm into Blazer to get to your html. From there I can use your links, right?

    Can I do all this using Blazer or do I need to unzip your file on a desktop?

    I prefer to visit sites from my Treo 650 that are sized for a handheld device. I found some great sites that look perfect in Blazer and give me some great info. Some are obvious and others aren't. What are your top 10...or 20?

    MarketWatch
    Yahoo!
    AccuWeather
    Google - PDA Formatted
    Mapquest - PDA Formatted
    Dictionary.com - Not formatted specifically for PDA's but it's still good for a quick lookup and has minimal graphics

    There are a few more but those are my main sites. I use them mostly to check stocks, check the weather, get quick directions, look up a word or do a search. If I'm really bored I would read something like CNN or sports but I typically have a magazine or book w/me if I'm traveling and want to fill time. Also, I check out PDA Portal for links to good PDA formatted sites.

    I have a lot of trouble with AccuWeather not showing the radar image. Do you have this trouble?

    However, this is a good list to get started.

    AccuWeather Radar displays fine on my Treo 600. However, there are times when it will not show local radar (for my zip code)

    http://mobile.wunderground.com is the best weather app that I've found. It is made perfectly for wap. It's quick and easy to use with a decent amount of info available.

    Oh yeah. That wunderground is a great site. Nice local radar. I have used it on my desktop, but did not know the mobile address.
