To me, all that is practically needed from a PDA is a small
schedule/alarm/MP3 player. The rest are toys because I use desktops
machines for everything unless I am out on the street.
Pocket PC's are heavy, large, and slow. In that sense, they can never
improve my life. I cannot watch films while I walk. I don't desire to
either. What's more, if you use one of the powerful operating systems, you
will need a device that's fully compatible, supported, and open. Speaking
of which, OS 6 might be conceded, I think, because of the switch to UNIX.
