schestowitz 05 12:45 After an hour of researching, #android seems like garbage as a PIM, esp. on import/export/sync side. Will buy 2nd-hand #Palm PDA.Dec 05 12:45
schestowitz"Palm? Surely u can tweak android to do your bidding"Dec 05 12:45
schestowitz"Dec 05 12:46
schestowitzI'm with uns0b on this. Even my old crappy Android phone (running 2.2) was a more capable PIM than any Palm device I ever had access to. If you don't mind sharing, what are your specific needs?Dec 05 12:46
schestowitzNote: on the other hand, if you're perhaps not interested in using any cloud services, I could see why Android wouldn't work at all for you.Dec 05 12:46
schestowitz"Dec 05 12:46
schestowitz"I'm sad to hear that. KDE people have not continued support of Palm, so I now do sync with JPilot, which is pretty useless compared to the Korganizer suite. I sync mostly as a backup. KDE's ability to turn Palm into standard files like ics, ical, etc, was wonderful. I thought the KDE people had turned to Android. Did they take the lazy way and rely on Google as a sync?"Dec 05 12:46
schestowitz"Mostly, I miss KDE's excellent display and search features. With JPilot, it's easier to use the device's search."Dec 05 12:46
schestowitzThe data must not go online and I use jpilot to easily copy it around... I don't have conduits with Android and tha tablet is too largeDec 05 12:47
schestowitz 05 12:48 I thought I had saved my Palm PDA but its problem seems to be chronic and I spend hours thinking I save it.. over and over again.Dec 05 12:48
schestowitz"I once saved my Handspring. "Dec 05 12:48
schestowitzThis device seems to have issues even when wiped. It locks up and claims to have a pointer error exception, might be a memory defectDec 05 12:49
schestowitz 05 12:49 #Gates speaks in many health panels/forums/programmes although he has no qualifications in the field, let alone a university degree.Dec 05 12:49
schestowitz"Not a fan of gates, but he doesn't have a degree in business or CS either."Dec 05 12:49
schestowitz"Microsoft reflects Gate's lack of business and CS education too. His success was a triumph of wealth, power and lack of ethics over science and society."Dec 05 12:50
schestowitzExactly.Dec 05 12:50
