It's not just about music

It occured to me that a lot of stuff I've been posting here has been of a music-centric nature, and I wanted to say that it wasn't my intention for this to become another Palm Sounds. It isn't. In fact, what I'd like to focus on here is more to do with the original PDA technology from which our current mobile and tablet industries have sprung.

So, to give you a flavour of the things I'd like to cover I thought I'd come up with a little list. Here's the plan:
  • Original and rare PDAs
  • Useful and interesting sites that still focus their attention on older handheld and mobile technologies
  • Interesting or novel uses for old tech
  • Re-purposing older tech
  • Real world uses for old tech
  • Applications that are still available for PDAs (probably mostly around Palm OS), including:
    • Art and drawing
    • Internet based apps
    • Using PDAs to control other devices (i.e. Mindstorms NXT)
    • Hacks
    • Development of PDA software and tools
    • and of course, music related stuf too
That's the rough plan anyway. I thought it was worth saying. If I don't stick to it entirely, don't be too surprised.
