Palm Pre Thoughts

The big news today seems to be the new Palm Pre. It’s a rather beautiful device, though I’m not sure it will save Palm. Developer API – Palm choose to make it literally a “WebOS” (that’s what they call it). Applications are written using HTML5, CSS, JS (via WebKit) and there are API’s to access […]

When Will Google Calendar Become Usable?

Google Calendar is an awesome web application. And despite my best efforts, Google doesn’t want me to use it. It came out back in April, and still lacks WebDAV support. As a result it’s read-only for client side applications. If they supported WebDAV so we could have full access to calendars, it would be infinitely […]

In Search Of The Missing Sync?

I had another silly thought this evening, and thought I’d just mention it for anyone interested. I’ve been reading through some bugs, and wiki documents on the state of synchronization of various devices with Mozilla based products. It would be great to have a generic XPCOM wrapper for interacting with Bluetooth support on various platforms […]

My PDA Doesn’t Stay Up Past Midnight

Recently my Sony Clie has been giving me the following error when I try to HotSync: — Date Book – Your device does not support events spanning midnight. The end time was set to 11:55 on both the Palm Desktop and the device for this event: [event description I finally found the problem. You need […]

Lightning Project

This is seriously big news. I’ve blogged about this before. This is great news. As I’ve said before, this is the missing link to penetrating the market. Going against commercial heavyweight Outlook. One thing I didn’t see mentioned was Address Book Integration/enhancement. As I’ve suggested before, the Address Book has a nice feel to it, […]

2005 Year of the PIM

2004 was without question the year of the browser. A year ago, for many people IE was the only browser they knew of. Now with tons of mainstream press, it’s becoming all too common to see Firefox everywhere. Even before 1.0 there were amazing, glowing reviews. Now with 1.0 out, the press is becoming hard […]

Palm OS Address Program

Does Palm OS 5 support “Contacts” or “Address” as the address book program? From how I see it, all but 3 models, use Address. But I have yet to see this in writing beyond a reasonable doubt (I just made my conclusion based on my findings). Can anyone help David and myself out here with […]

Palm Sync and Patent fixing

David Bienvenu is working hard on getting Palm Sync working on Thunderbird. The last essential feature before I can move to Thunderbird for mail. Hopefully he learns the Palm Sync code well, and can fix those pesky bugs that have been driving me nuts as well as the new one I filed earlier today. πŸ˜‰ […]

Mozilla 1.5RC2 out

Mozilla 1.5RC2 is out. Download NOW! Fixes that bug that’s really been bothering me. Hopefully I won’t see it again, and can verify that fix. I’m going to give it until Monday afternoon. If I don’t see anything, that means it’s most likely resolved, as I typically get it once a day. Mozilla’s getting better […]

More on Palm Sync

I need Palm Sync! Seriously. Here’s the bug. And a nice long thread on the issue. I wish it would be working, and whomever gets it working will be my new friend πŸ˜‰ Palm Sync makes life so nice and easy. Enter someone’s email in my Palm, and it’s in my email addressbook. And vice […]
