How many of you reading this can actually say you’ve owned a PDA (personal digital assistant) or Palm Pilot? When I first saw them while I was in middle school I knew I had to have one someday. Think about it, your own computer in the palm of your hand! You could update a calendar, write notes, send an e-mail maybe. I did end up getting a youth PDA and I used it to play such amazing black and white games like hangman.
The PDA has gone the way of the pager, replaced and made to look archaic by the cell phone and ultimately the smart phone and tablet computer. There are still people who use Palm / PDA devices today, but really how useful could one be? I would think the closest thing to a PDA today is the iPod Touch, but at least that doubles as a MP3 / digital media player.
Do you still have a dedicated calendar / organizer device? Why?
Oh man, I think I still have an old palm pilot sitting in a drawer somewhere. I felt SO professional when I first brought it to work with me, I think it was over a decade ago. ^_^ I’m kind of tempted to see if I can find it later, just for fun.
