    Software piracy is a tricky subject. You've got people on both extremes, and a lot of people caught somewhere in between. I used to be a big software pirate in my Amiga days, but that's a discussion for another day. For many years now, I've tried hard to be on the up-and-up as far as piracy goes, for several reasons.

    However, as I said, there is some gray area in between where what's ethical and what's legal are not always one and the same. As a consumer, it can be especially frustrating when you'd be willing to pay for something but the software isn't even available for sale. This isn't much different, IMO, from the ethical conundrums that plague the gaming emulator world.

    If nothing else, the frequent discussions about transferring these enhanced PIM apps from a TE or TT3 to other OS5 devices should hopefully wake someone up at palmOne to the fact that they're missing out on a golden opportunity here. Hopefully, they'll offer these apps for sale (hopefully at a reasonable price).

    ehrrr.. how about doing the obvious?
    now that Handspring and Palm is one company, why not simply email and ask them for a treo600 version of the enhanced PIM?

    Consider it a service extended to all people who has paid premium price for a gadget short on features.

    Actually, I already did that. I'll post the response if I ever get one...
