    I bought BoxWave's miniSync Treo600 retractable charger/sync cable. At only $15, it was a steal. I then purchased Palm's desktop cradle for $20. It sync's great, but why doesn't it charge? For $5 more, a thicker cable and fewer moving parts, why can't Palm be bothered to add charge-over-usb functionality?

    Because if you make the cradle pull power from the USB port it can only pull power from there. The USB port is not as well regulated power source as a good wall charger. Plus the USB port cannot put out as much current so it might charge slower.
