Palm or Symbian?

I’ve recently only considered the palm Operating System as the only OS worth using. I originally started out with PSION (3c 1mb) running it’s own PSION OS. Then PSION created a separate company with partners such as nokia, ericsson etc called Symbian. Not a lot happen for a while and some partners sold out and moved on, but symbiam is starting to build up a significant following.

Your average consumer may have a DVD player, a PC and possibly a digital camera, but he/she is unlikely to have a palm top computer or a PDA. But nearly ever man women and dog has a mobile phone these days, with some people even having two. Therefore the first exposure to a small PDA OS may be the one that’s running their mobile phone.

The average consumer is unlikely to buy a Treo 600 as it’s far to big and much too complicated for simply making and receiving calls. Therefore phones such as Nokia’s 6600 may well be people’s first exposure to this bread of OS. This could be a huge win for Symbiam, as once they’ve got people hooked and familar with it’s layout, people may be reluctant to change once they invested the time in learing their way around the small OS.

As a result of this, could Symbian grow to overtake Palm in this market place…I think they will.

clevercactus this is a tool


this is a tool that intergrates email, rss, projects, calendar etc…is one tool that does it all better than several tools that specialize?

I personally prefer to use different tools, so a email client tat specializes in email, an RSS aggregater that is the best etc etc. you can then replace the tool if a better one comes a long. But still an interesting idea.

hmm..web server down again!

some strange goings on of web site monitoring has been email/smsing me far too much recently and I couldn’t figure out why.I thought lnux and apache ould give me a far more stable system than my previous web server.

So this monring I stated a ping test from the XP box to the linux box and I got a no response reply. I then jumped to the linux box, which must have gone into hibernation mode and hit return to wake it up. I then jumped back to the XP box and saw the ping responses come in..

yikes…loads to sort out.. I

yikes…loads to sort out..

I need to figure out what domain I intend to use and then how I’m gonna host it. I then need to sort out the files structure of MT.

And the the virtual hosting name paths to host both the new blog and the other web sites..

Do i host the domain totaly or use somebody else to host it and just redirect?

still so much to do and so much to learn!
