So its been a year since I have had my Pre.
For a while, updates made my battery life get better, then something started happening. My battery life got worse, and worse, and worse.
I replaced my battery with a Mugen 1400 thinking it was just getting old. It wasnt that. Got a new Pre. Still bad.
I slowly figured it out.
Facebook Notifications. Google Talk. Facebook Chat. Twitter notifications. Pack and Track Notifications. Google Latitude Auto update. Weather Dashboard Auto update. FlightView Notifications. Palm Backups. Google Calendar syncing.
Our little pocket devices shouldnt be the ones to have to take all of this data in from other sources in the background and process it, update it, notify it, sync it. That is so stupid.
This should all be done at a server somewhere, and pushed to our phones only when they need to know about it.
Where is Mojo Push?
With WebOS 2.0 and synergy bringing our phones to the next level of syncing, our batteries are gonna last 5 minutes.
We need Push more than ever Palm.
HP: all those people you just sent to Palm from the Home Server department, get them to build a push server system.
We need it, bad.
