PalmOne LifeDrive

Finally, Palm has come out with a device that has both Bluetooth and WiFi, the LifeDrive. I'm very excited about this device. They also squeezed in a 4GB hard drive. Only 16MB of ROM though, so I imagine that not just "all your important files" but software must go onto that hard drive. I wonder how that will affect performace of those apps?

I may just have to find out via AmazonBuy PalmOne Lifedrive from Amazon through IASC. :D

Update: From PalmOne LifeDrive Mobile Manager: Is it cool or too big for today's comsumer tastes? by Todd Ogasawara -- PalmOne's LifeDrive PDA is the first PDA I know of with an integrated microdrive (4GB large). It also has integrated Bluetooth and 802.11b WiFi capabilities. So, is the world ready with an open wallet for this intersection of a Palm PDA and iPod mini?

I'm a diehard Palm fan, and have been since my first Palm Pilot in 1996. Many of the points made by Todd Ogasawara are well taken. I do want to get rid of my cell phone, but I don't find the screens on smart phones, even the Treo, to be adequate. I think my ideal PDA would take from the Treo650. TungstenT-5, LifeDrive and Tapwave Zodiac: the large screen [with rotation between portrait and landscape modes], built-in WiFi [though give me a/g not just b], bluetooth and cellular [GSM or CDMA based options with latest data protocols], 256MB RAM/ROM, and two expansion card slots [either both SD/SDIO or one SD & one CF], and, of course, running the latest PalmOS. I don't really want the keyboard of the Treo; I've been using grafitti for so long that I my handwriting is now illegible. &#59;)

I'm Joseph A. di Paolantonio and this blog has two main foci: my interest in food, and my interest in the future. This provides a look into my personal life, and is separate from my consulting work…though there will be overlap. I am an independent researcher, working as a strategic consultant and I'm an executive with over 20 years of commercial experience with a technical interest in the intersection of Internet of Things, with advanced data management and analysis methods. I view data science as a team activity, and I feel that the IoT must be viewed as a system. I am leveraging my past activities to understand the adoption and impact of the IoT; first, as a system engineer in aerospace, where I developed Bayesian risk assessment methods for systems within the Space Transportation System (including the Space Shuttle), Extreme Ultraviolet Explorer, Gravity Probe B, and many more, and second, as a enterprise data warehousing, business intelligence and analytics professional. Between my aerospace and IT careers, I indulged my hobby of cooking by starting a food company, Montara Magic, centered around my chocolate sauces. My education combined chemistry, mathematics and philosophy. I performed research into molten salt fuel cells in graduate school, and in photovoltaic materials for a short time in industry. The lure of bringing the human race into space was strong, and when I was offered the chance to combine my chemistry and mathematics skills to develop new risk assessment and system engineering methods for space launch and propulsion systems – I couldn't resist. I perform independent research and strategic consulting to bring value from the Internet of Things, Sensor Analytics Ecosystems and data science teams.I am a caregiver, a lover of science fiction and speculative fantasy, and my passion to learn has led me to a pilot's license, an assistant instructor in SCUBA, nordic and alpine skiing, sea kayaking, and reading everything I can, in as many topics as I can.
