Palm TX as MP3 Player

I used Pocket Tunes my Palm TX to play MP3s through my cassette adapter into our Windstar's stereo. A 1G SD card can hold quite a bit of music. We listened for 4.5 hours straight. When I got here, the TX's battery was at 60%! It was probably about 96% when we started. That's pretty sweet--especially since I had to max out the volume. I did turn off the graphic equalizer to save CPU time and therefore battery strength. The screen was obviously off the whole time too. The possibility of about 10 hours of continuous MP3 playback is very nice indeed.

Goodbye Symantec

Well, I finally bailed out of the Symantec Antivirus rowboat, and switched to Trend Micro. I was sick and tired of their extremely high prices for little returned value, and with 2 PCs that need AV protection, I wasn't going to pay for the Norton/Symantec name or their terrible tech support anymore.

While I have been fairly pleased with Trend Micro so far, the Firewall portion of the package seems to be kind of flaky. I don't know if that's because of my prior installation of Symantec, or what, but hopefully I'll have that issue worked out shortly.
