    Yes I am amazed by the treo, it is a powerful tool. I can add a few things to your list. I use it with mapopolis and a gps receiver for turn by turn spoken directions in the car. I can't live without my auto program (teal auto) to track service and fuel mileage. Didn't think I would ever use one, now that I have an auto tracking app I always use it.

    You mentioned a remote control for your tv, etc. Which program do you use for the universal remote? I have heard that the range is only 3 feet or so on the treo.
