Anyone have any connections…

… to someone who can get me a Treo 650 for less than $500? One of my coworkers knows someone at PalmOne but we’re having trouble getting one through them. I desperately need to replace my two-year old Nokia 3310. My phone is older than my nephew. I may have to give up my geek membership card. <grin>

eBay is no help. All auctions end above $550ish. I don’t WANT to go over $500 but if it doesn’t happen soon, I may…. just…. crack….

A blackberry is an option but I tested both the Treo and the T-Mobile Blackberry 7100t. I wasn’t as impressed by the blackberry as I thought I would be. It was nice at first but then I picked up the Treo.

I don’t want to have to go back to the Palm OS after having a PocketPC iPaq for a while (dead now. sigh.) but the Treo is a good enough combination until PalmOne releases their PocketPC version of the Treo, or even the Cobalt version.

From … “After reading a story in the NYT, Jim’s wife Heidi came up with a method to fight back against the obnoxious cell phone users that we all have to deal with in stores, restaurants, trains and pretty much everywhere else. Can design ride to the rescue? Jim and the incomparable Aaron Draplin think it can. So, as a public service, we introduce the reasonably polite SHHH, the Society for HandHeld Hushing.

Download this PDF, get out your exacto knife or scissors and start fighting back. ”

Dunno how annoyed I get by the loud-talkers but this is a great idea. Now if only it was possible to create one for the annoying drivers on the road. USE A SIGNAL!!!!! Jeez.
