Having recently purchased an iPAQ, and having only marginally less recently mislaid or damaged a few address books, and having never recovered from losing the PalmV that was stolen a year ago, I put out a request to a few friends about contact information.
I requested, along with the usual data, anything else they'd think I'd like to have in a fully loaded address book
Hmmmmmmmmmmmmm. Vague, I suppose.
The responses? well, some of the responses have been amusing . . . . .
"Don't use the old address. It's filled with pr0n."I'm assuming this meant email, but, who knows?
"A way to stop the abyss in the apartment from swallowing you."Hmmmmmm. If I had that, well, I suppose an address book would be a place to store it.
"You should use PIM software like Outlook or Lotus Notes. Did you know that Outlook supports most formats of paper-based planner paper? Great for keeping your information organized. Just write changes in by hand and reprint pages as needed.I just got the iPAQ. And, now, my choice has been validated. Mark, you are still the answer man. And how can I not be attracted to something slim, rugged, and ladylike?
Of course, PDA's are getting cheap now. I recommend the Toshiba e730 Pocket PC - or the HP iPAQ (which is very slim, rugged, and ladylike). People who buy Palm OS PDA's are getting ripped off."
"bra size: 34D (yowza !!!!!!)"Perhaps I should start a petition to iPAQ for that to be added as a special field. There would undoubtedly be many others who would find this useful.
"Address books must always be little black books."For whom? And according to what definition? I don't know if this means that they should be small and black or that they should be . . . . . well, you know.
