    Apparently, that poster thinks my guilt was that I responded to your stupidity. That still doesn't explain your stupidity. But I responded to it because you posted it. If you don't want me to respond to it, don't post it. Wow, simple. See, it works both ways: Anything I post, I expect others to be free to respond to it. (In fact, it apparently is unnecessary to even be on topic?!?!? Who knew? Oh, I guess you did, didn't you.)

    What's petty, Woof, is that you post in threads you have nothing to contribute to.

    Once again showing that while you are proving to be very prolific in your meaningless posting (after all, you show absolutely no signs of slowing down), you are proving to be very derelict in actually READING any of the meaningful posts. Oh, and of course, you haven't gotten around to contributing one yet, either.

    Just to keep this post on topic: I found the linked-to "RIM and PalmOne" blog articles in this thread to be pretty "interesting" (before Woof drops another baby calf, let me qualify that "interesting" to mean not necessarily interesting to anyone else, just to me. So it's not "officially" interesting, if you know what I mean.

In our environment, we need push e-mail (and the ability to sync phone-based "sent" mail back into the server mailbox; we don't want to send corporate e-mail from personal pop3 accounts on individual's phones), and especially, we need the ability to set/accept appointments and meetings on both the phone and the server (this is the critical flaw we are experiencing with the Treo 650).

    The Treo 650 was sufficiently attractive to start our testing with it; even though it does *not* sync contacts or memos/tasks over the air.

    That's been my focus all along, and all my evaluation/recommendation, etc., is based on those factors/issues/"features".

    I wish I could recommend something; sorry that I cannot.

    Tell me more about your environment: Why choose the Treo 650?

    Are you trying to use your office mailbox on the phone? (Is that a "must have"?) What are your other "must haves" that brought you to the Treo?
    The "must haves" are phone, calender, contacts, task manager, and text messaging. Maybe web. Email really wasn't a consideration. I use PGP encrypted email, I'm not sure it's compatible. I wanted the phone because it appeared to be a compact all-in-one, which I needed to get more organized. I at first wanted a PPC phone, but this was smaller than a PPC(the ones I saw anyway) and still had a full keyboard, another feature I liked.
    HP has officially ruined it's own platform and kicked webOS loyalists and early TouchPad adopters to the curb. You think after you drop it like a hot potato and mention it made no money and is costing you money, anyone else wants it??? Way to go HP!!

    And some people are fools to keep believing their hype. HP has shown they will throw webOS under the bus and people are still having faith in them??? News flash: if it's own company won't stand behind it, it's finished!

    This thread was almost a complete waste of time. The one redeeming qualty of the thread is that I've added one person to my [Ignore] for reasons obvious to anyone who can read...well, except for one person (at that's the problem).

    LOL. God this is so funny. "small little man" to which you are refering has nothing to do with your physicality. It's a reference as to your personality. What it means is that you are not big enough to see the veiwpoints of others. You take the stand that you are right no matter what and resort to attcking others to support that. I mean look at all the threads below where you attack my opinion. As to your age, I can only guess that the 81 in your name is the year of your birth and being so young you clearly havent grown mature enough to be open to the opinions of other.

    My comments that you like to focus on about 'being smarter' are simply observations that some people think their take on a subject is the absolute. Opinions are not absolute, they change all the time.

    You clearly think, by the content of your posts in this thread that your opinion and knowledge on this subject is superior.

    I on the other hand never claimed to know more than you about anything. I just felt your use of the word official in your first post was inappropriate.

    It seems you don't like to have your knowledge or your statements questioned. Small men are unwilling to accept they might be wrong.

    I on the other hand am willing to accept your Symbian comments IF they play out the way you suggest. At this point however it is mere conjecture. Only time will tell.



    There is one thing that has become overwhelmingly obvious is a brief review of your postings to these forums: Your preferred mode of personal attack on others is to accuse them of thinking they are smarter than others (really, just spend a little time with the search function; you will become more informed).

    Just a few:

    http://discussion.treocentral.com/sh...3&postcount=10

    http://discussion.treocentral.com/sh...4&postcount=32
    (^that's a classic, indeed^)

    Oh, and anything YOU don't like is "crap," apparently.

    http://discussion.treocentral.com/sh...&postcount=124

    http://discussion.treocentral.com/sh...76&postcount=3

    According to the forum search: "Search: Key Word(s): crap ; Posts Made By: Woof" Results? 55!

    Dude, you are the BEST!
    Why argue with the facts. I have accused numerous people of thinking they are smarter than anyone else because they post OPINION AS FACT. It may be the case for them but they act as though it is that way for everyone when it is clearly not.

    As to my use of the word crap, am I not entitled to my opinion? You clearly are spending too much time trying to discredit me. Is it that important to you that you make me look bad? Are you that weak that you must search out examples of what you perceive to be my inferiority? I hope this is just your internet personality. If it's the real you I can thank my lucky stars I dont have to interact with you in person. That would be intolerable.

    So what is it, Woof, YOU are allowed to say such ugly, disrespectful stuff...but no one else can?

    Unfortunately, you have a pretty obvious pattern of behavior that stretches across dozens of threads.

    You DON'T know anything about the topic of this thread, and you have a ridiculous pattern of attacking people who express opinions or report news that you perceive as negative toward your beloved Treo.

    Worse, you don't CARE whether the Treo has Exchange Activesync functionality and clearly cannot understand the potential negative implication of another smartphone platform coming out with it to the tune of MILLIONS of units. Possibly less expensive and/or more advanced units (for example, as stated in the original link, Symbian OS plans to over-the-air sync to Contacts and potentially Tasks/Notes AS WELL as Mail and Calendar).

    But, gosh, can you "fling the phlegm" (<--NOT literally, mind you)! Woof, you can say whatever you want, but you cannot actually insult me, as I see you very, very clearly.

    STYLE NOTE: Woof, please review a few of your past diatribes so that you can refresh yourself as to the stale repetition of insults you have already hurled in my direction. It's really time for something new. Thanks!

    The mods didnt have a problem with my assesment of that developers support because they saw it as my opinion. I dont recall the developer commenting either. But since that post is from June of last year, I dont really remeber which product it was even talking about. Who really cares.
    Why have you made attacking me a personal obsession. Have you read all my posts? All because I disagreed with you. How sad.

    Must this go on and on?

    1. I know plenty about Activesync. It isnt rocket science and it is fairly easy to understand.
    2.Youre right I dont care if it works. Big deal. Do you really think everyone who has a treo does? I got news for you, they don't. And if Symbian comes out with a better unit then maybe I'll by one of those if it suits my needs. I'll cross that bridge when I get to it. Troe 650 is fine for now, as was the 600 before it and the Samsung I330 before that.
    3. Not literally huh? You should see my kb and monitor. .... Duh! I am not trying to insult you. I am merely pointing out that you come across as rether arrogant and condescending. No insult intended, just observasion.
    4. Maybe I should try some of your insults? Nah, you doing just fine on your own.

    OK barky, youre right. You win. Youre smarter and nicer and know more about everything. ALthough you continue to need to take comments out of context that arent relative to THIS thread, I'll concede and let you win. . Fine. It's all yours.



    Mark: sorry this has gone on like it has. I am done.

    Everyone is done. Keep the thread on-topic or don't bother posting. Why must everything turn into an all-out flame war? Agree to disagree and move on.

    sorry Mark. I didn't think it was cool for everyone who disagreed with the original post to be belittled so badly. I handled it poorly.

    on topic.... Palms entrance into Activesync support was nothing special, at least so far. Why expect Symbian's to be any better? I have to agree w/darnell. Palms 2nd go will be better and there is no guarantee Symbian will be success the first time. Only time will tell. In the end though I don't really care. Don't have any use for it. Might as well be wifi.

    Actually I do have a problem with it. Opinion or not, language like that is not tolerated. You should know that by now..
