From Palm to Hiptop

So I took advantage of the $49 Hiptop special and finally migrated from my ancient Palm. When reading all the complaints of the browser rendering I grouchily asked, 'Who really wants to browse the web on a screen that big anyway?' but actually, now that I have one, I do. Having access to the Web almost anywhere is awesome.

I find I have better control over my data too since the phone is always with me, whereas the Palm was always two steps behind, in my bag somewhere.

And now that I can see through the eyes of the mobile user I found it necessary to create a mobile version of NBS.

Subsequently I have a Palm III with RhinoPak case and GoType keyboard for sale for any reasonable offer ($30?)
