I do. You bet I do. Lemme talk about it. Back in the day all my friends in high school had Franklin planners (yes, I used to run with a very nerdy crew). I wanted a Franklin planner, but they made those things so ridiculously expensive that my parents wouldn't cover it (smart move on their part. Those things were overrated). I ran around with the inferior Cambridge planner with a fake leather binding and much cheaper fillers. If you're too young to know what a Franklin or Cambridge planner is, think of it as a glorified Trapper Keeper (just look it up).
When I got into college, my Dad gave me an unexpected gift: his old Palm III. He had just upgraded to the Palm IIIC (which I would later inherit from him) and he gave me his monochrome Palm III. I bought a fold-out keyboard for it and used my first PDA for everything from playing games (what I did the most) to taking notes in class (what I did the least). Best of all, I had technology that my pen and paper toting colleagues did not. I was on top of the world. I indicated that I would later inherit my Dad's IIIC. This happened after the III got dropped and suffered irreparable damage. So the Palm IIIC became my first color PDA. I've owned several since then, but have only held onto three.
Here's a list of PDA's I have owned inasmuch as I can remember and in no particular order: Dell Axim X30, Palm Tungsten T, Palm IIIC, Ipaq H5150 (given to my wife), Sony Clie N760C, Palm IIIX, Palm VX, Palm M130, Palm M505, Palm Tungsten E, and probably a few others I'm forgetting. Now that I look at it, that's a nerdy freaking list. It's important to note that none of those PDA's double as cell phones. I don't currently own a cell phone and don't want one. Yeah, I'm weird.
Anyway, I just wanted to talk a bit about why I love the three PDA's I've held onto and why I keep using technology that the world has largely given up on, especially now that tablet pc's and smartphones are all the rage.
Anyway, those are the three PDA's I still own. They all still work and I still own all the accessories for them. I love each of them in their own way. I don't really use any of them for planning, but I never really used my first Palm for planning either. I didn't use my old Cambridge Planner for planning. I used it for doodling and writing cryptic messages about the girl I liked.
So if you ever wondered what kind of outdated nerdy nerd would still run around with an old PDA, that would be me. I tend to not throw technology out. First of all, I'm always nostalgic for old technology (which explains my vast Atari collection) and secondly, if you choose (as I have) to be the sort of person who isn't driven by market forces and the need to own the latest and greatest thing, you'll find that the things that were the latest and greatest thing 10 years ago are still remarkably nifty. This is why you should have a working Mac Classic in your house and why you should have a utility belt with a working pager and a Palm Pilot. Never give up, never surrender.
