    So I took the power tools to my 700w last night...

    I use the stylus quite a bit, and I also like to use the press-and-hold "OK" function to bring up memory management and quit some programs. The problem is, the OK button is kinda slippery and difficult to press with the stylus, thereby requiring a hand/thumb/finger/stylus shuffle to press the OK button.

    Solution - a very sharp small drill bit, low speed drill, and 30 seconds later a nice little indentation in the "OK" button, so the stylus now sits nicely in the dent and can be used to press that key.

    A small thing, but it makes a big difference to my daily use of the Treo.

    I thought the whole point of the Treo was to leave the stylus in the back, where it belongs...

    Drill + Treo = ????

    I've never tried to use a stylus to press any of the hard buttons on the Treo. The stylus was designed for the screen while the hard buttons were designed for pressing with your fingers.

    I am curious...does anyone else use the stylus on the hard buttons?

    Harsh... (PS - Carlos steals his jokes anyway. His real name isn't Carlos, it's Ned. Also he's not even part Mexican.)

    While I wouldn't particularly do that to my Treo, I see the OP's point. Some of us old school Palm Pilot users LIKE the stylus. I can graffiti faster than most can type on those tictac buttons. I gotta give the OP credit for a little ingenuity.

    If it works for you - go for it.

    I never thought to use the stylus to push the hard buttons. At first I thought it was a joke... but I don't think so. Hey... whatever works.


    I do give credit for the ingenuity.
