About 1 month ago I found a Palm Pre on the bus.
I should have returned it but my Babylon-infused mind didn't even think to return it.
Instead I thought it was a pretty neat little phone, I liked that it said Palm because my older brother was a techie back in the 90s and loved the hell out of Palm devices. We were probably the only broke teenagers rocking Palms in middle school. Man was that the bomb!!
I ended up wiping the phone clean so I can start to use it and claim it as my own.
Lo and behold, there is a Palm Profile log in I can't get passed, so the phone is pretty much bricked.
I let it be. But something about it makes me keep wanting to hold it, it feels so lovely and natural in my hand,
like a stone.
2 weeks later I have a bit of money and go ahead and buy my own Palm Pre 2.
I received it about 4 days ago and I have fallen so deeply in love with this device, I am afraid of it dying on me someday. I want to buy at least 1 more just to have in stand-by.
WebOS is the bomb!!!! Maaan, such a smooth interface. And the apps it comes with are perfect for organizing (I really loved the PDA organizational features of the early Palms I had used)
I got a few homebrew apps on my phone now so it's amazing to use Google Maps (thank you to whoever made that) and get my Gameboy Advance gaming on!! Hell yeah!!
Anyway, I don't know if this thread is appropriate or not but I just wanted to reach out with my utter gratefulness and appreciation, the magnitude of which I cannot describe.
All the work you guys put into WebOS and Preware have made my last couple of days nothing but sheer magic.
Where can I donate appropiately? I work construction and just finished the last of my monies on a 6-pack but man I would really love to chunk some change to you all who make this possible.
