Let’s hear it for Psion. Not only did they make first class PDAs, which still have a massive community of user going nuts over, but their PC connectivity software PsiWin — which they stopped developing at version 2.3.3 (copyright 1997-2001) — still works perfectly even under the beta version of Windows 7 Ultimate edition.
First review of the new Asus Eee PC 900 at TrustedReviews.
Looks good, but just isn’t a Psion! 😉
One of the problems with having to reinstall all my applications at work (on a new PC, which I’m 100% not complaining about) is having to re-synchronize my Microsoft Windows Mobile 6 PDA (O2 Xda Orbit) with Microsoft Outlook 2003.
You’d think it was like a conversation between two members of the UN, with a translator for each.
I’ve just dropped off a couple of folks in St Andrews after dinner, popped into the office and it’s STILL synchronizing.
It’s been synchronizing for over 13.5 hours now!
Seriously?!! That’s absolutely rubbish.
I’ve said it before, I’ll say it again: my Psion 5mx from 8 years ago is better than that.
Thankfully when I arrived at the office this morning, shortly before 09:00, my PDA had finished synchronizing. Phew!
Chris Cooper has launched a new wiki for Psion enthusiasts/users. It’s called PsionWiki.
For those who don’t know, a wiki is a website that you can join, login to and create/edit the information on it.
If you’re a Psion user and want to contribute, then get over to http://psionwiki.wikidot.com/ and get involved.
At last! It’s taken a whole day, but my PDA and Outlook have finally seen eye-to-eye and synchronized.
- Contacts (651 items) – 2 hours
- Calendar (4,280 items) – 4.5 hours
- Tasks (96 items) – 1.25 hours
- Notes (4 items) – seconds
I wonder if I was to sync my Psion with Outlook how long it would take …
