Re: 3 cheers for automatic reminders

Subject: Re: 3 cheers for automatic reminders originally posted by msh210 on Jun 28, 04 - 1:29 PM But the one I have now has an alarm feature in the calendar. Being able to get an audible alarm x minutes, hours, or days before an event is a boon. Also, the data-keeping part is more useful than I exp...

3 cheers for automatic reminders

Subject: 3 cheers for automatic reminders originally posted by blm on Jun 25, 04 - 11:17 PM The first PDA I saw seemed relatively pointless. I didn't see any advantage to having data stored electronically that could just as easily be kept in a notebook (and data entry would be a zillion times easier...

Re: Does your wall caledar beep?

Subject: Re: Does your wall caledar beep? originally posted by David on Jun 28, 04 - 8:22 AM Surely a handheld would have to have a screen as big as a door to display an entire year's worth of information?

Re: PDA's - do you use one?

originally posted by David on Jun 25, 04 - 3:08 PM A PDA is one of the few gadgets that I don't use. My life isn't complicated enough.
