SF Gate has an article that talks over the points of the Amazon issue.
I don’t think I mentioned that there is a new member of the Raster family . I should have.
I lost my 20″ monitor yesterday. It just decided that it couldn’t go on. It’s an old Radius that I have had through six different desktop computers. I picked up a new one, but I wasn’t happy about spending the money.
It may be President’s day, and I may have the day off, but I’m not just sitting around and loafing.
Power On Software released their first version of GoMac , the utility that adds a Windows style task bar to the bottom of your Macintosh screen. I like having the same interface on my Macintosh that I do on my Windows boxes. This version seems more stable and they have added a couple of features that I really like to it.
I’ve set up my Palm Professional to be a full mail and Web client over a TCP/IP connection to my ISP. I’ve already found the limits of the devices built in memory though. I’m trying to decide if I want to upgrade the memory or wait and buy a new PIM altogether. It’s pretty neat to be able to do this stuff with such a small portable package. Bump seems to be pretty Palm friendly.
Update: At the request of two readers, I am using HandWeb and HandMail from SmartCode Software . They are both designed to work with the built-in PPP app that comes with both the Palm Professional and Palm III. I set it up with my ISP’s preferences, and was connected with the Palm Modem(which I bought) in minutes. I wish that HandMail supported IMAP(I get a lot of email) , but otherwise they both perform well. I do need additional memory to really use it on an ongoing basis, but it works in a pinch.
