    Under normal circumstances, I am a pretty patient guy...I am getting to the point where I dont want to mess around with beta's and would like the real deal. Well, looking back and seeing that the Sprint firmware was update in mid March, lets look at the calendar and see how many weeks...I mean months have passed.

    What gives? How hard could it possibly be to do the same for the GSM version since the majority of the world is GSM, you would think that Palmone had this in their pocket a long time ago. So what is the holdup...Cingular qualification (or whomever they are releasing it to). The consumer and certain industrys are screaming for Palm to fix the memory issue due to some industry software that requires a ton of space for data that the 650 cant hold, but the previous generation could with no problem.

    Palmone, if your listening, and I am sure you are, let pick up the pace and release what we all know you have. You're obligation to Sprint to release stuff first has long since passed and we, the consumer on the other end of the network fence, want, actually demand you fix now what you created.


    thanks for your time

    To be taken serious, I suggest running through a spell chack first.

    Sorry, wasnt aware that in order to be taken seriously, I needed perfect spelling and/or grammer. Most engineers spell like crap as it is (hint, hint)

    now I see why most people complain about this kinda crap...I am trying to make a point and all you can see are spelling mistakes...

    thats too bad

    So what started off as a means of voicing my frustration, turns into a spelling lesson...I guess I wont do that again!

    You might as well end this thread now...destroy it, delete it...whatever... because it seems that spelling is more important than content

    Oh good God, get off your high horse.

    Spelling is not more important than content. However, spelling says something about the person writing it, and for your concerns to be taken in the most constructive & professional way possible, using proper grammar and spelling is necessary.

    A lack of proper spelling or grammar often indicates that the comments in question were written by someone who meets one or more of the following conditions:
    - is not an adult
    - is uneducated
    - is in an emotional state and sent without the benefit of logical review
    - is writing the comments flippantly and without care

    So, if you want your comments to carry the most weight possible, you can probably afford to take the five minutes required to spellcheck and proofread. If not, you're communicating that didn't think your own comments were worth the five minutes required to do that.

    Hey Macgyver,

    Try it on for size yourself..."grammer" is spelled "grammar"...so where do you fall in your so called list above?

    Wow. You're right. My single spelling error totally invalidates my point (annoying, however because my auto-spell checker got turned off).

    But more importantly, I'm not trying to convince a large corporation how they should spend time and money to make me happy as a customer. I was just responding to what appeared to be a minor temper tantrum thrown over a perfectly valid comment: namely, spell-check before sending an email to a corporation or other professional entity if you want it to carry the most weight possible.

    And more importantly, I'm willing to own up to just making a dumb mistake. As opposed to immediately suggesting that by virtue of someone pointing out the mistake, they didn't care about the content of my message.
