Hating PowerPoint

Despite David Byrne's use of the technology, I'm glad to see that many people agree with me that PowerPoint is evil. I'm going to have to find that PowerPoint version of the Gettysburg Address. It sounds hilarious. My favorite quote in the article is from Vint Cerf, "Power corrupts and PowerPoint corrupts absolutely." Thanks Blue's News.

New PDA Case

Following some recommendations, I ordered a Slipper case from EB Cases for my Tungsten E. I ordered it on Christmas Day and it arrives via FedEx today! It looks really nice, fits the PDA very well, and should do a good job of protecting it. So far, I give it a big thumbs up. I'll report back as I have some more "field experience" with it.

From PocketPC to Palm

Everytime I've talked with hardcore PocketPC (aka WinCE) users, they always call Palm devices glorified calendars but you can "do work" with PocketPC devices. This is obvious FUD, but it's always interesting to hear from someone who started out in the Palm camp, moved to PocketPC, and now is back to Palm. Jeff Kirvin created a two part guide (part one, part two) for PocketPC users thinking of switching to a Palm. Especially interesting is his assertion that Documents to Go is a better MS Office replacement than MS's own Pocket Office. Check those columns out for a refreshingly rhetoric-free view of the ongoing PDA war.
