    Where do you check these prices? is there any particular portal or engine?

    How about http://www.froogle.com for starters...which can be linked to the Wassdat program. You can also linke the www.wapipedia.org site to the Wassdat program, with any other search engine that you'd like. I haven't actually linked wapipedia.org yet, but I'm sure it'll work.

    Before the page loads completely, it says that it won't work because of JavaScript, but if you wait for it to load it works fine. The pages take a while to load, but eventually they did for me. Let me know if that works.

    I like the 'just link to the weather map jpg' tip. It's a lot faster this way.

    Either Froogle or Amazon. Usually Amazon. I know they usually don't have the absolute rock bottom prices, but it's a good reference to the neighborhood of the best price.

    A program I'd really love to see would be one that scans the barcode with the Treo's camera and looks up the price online. Amazon lets you search by UPC.

    A working camera barcode scanner is available: http://treoware.com/barcode.html . This puts the UPC in the clipboard, so it should be pretty simple to send that to Amazon and show the results in Blazer.

    If I knew how to code, I'd do it.

    I have all the traffic cams on my route to and from work bookmarked, so I can see how the traffic is. No waiting for the rest of the site to load, takes about 10 seconds to know what I have waiting in front of me.

    Doh! I just didn't wait long enough. This is fantastic! Thanks!

    Yeah, my Blazer homepage is basically a html file I made myself (stored on my SD card) with my favorite links alphabetized. 24k, loads really quick. To check commodity prices I have a link to the *.gif that is a daily updated chart. I get the information I want in about 2 seconds, instead of going to the site and navigating.

    I also put the little quick links (0-9, # and * can launch links with no stylus).

    Mind sharing the file so I can get an idea. Sounds pretty cool!

    That's like saying I just got a new digital camera yet I'm amish.
    Hey, I own a 650 and work on mainframes!

    It was weird working on a program that was written (1969) before I was born. I also work on much newer stuff from SAP.

    I just tried Win-Hand. Thanks.
    It's free for a limited number of connections per day.

    Really cool program. I wish I had a practical use for it, because it's so damn cool.
    I'm gonna think up some excuse to use it every day - or at least every time I show off what my Treo can do.

    As for me, the cool bit is being able to quickly & easily check the weather radar. Blazer supports animated GIF files, so find the links to the specific graphic files on weather.com or accuweather.com and avoid all the other junk. Maybe not a big deal elsewhere, but in the SouthEast in summertime...

    Couple examples:

    http://image.weather.com/web/radar/u...edium_usen.jpg
    http://sirocco.accuweather.com/nx_mo...inmaSIRGA_.gif

    Traffic Info
    Local more to Georgia/ATL, but GeorgiaNavigator has a WAP based site. Way cool.
    http://www.myganav.com/www/pda/

    Dictionary
    Merriam-Webster for the Palm
    http://www.m-w.com/palm.htm

    Excellent weather site with animated radar, storm tracks, current conditions, and forecasts. Check it out at:
