>>...I'm curious about one other aspect of technology: PDAs, Who uses them?, which one?...<<
I'm getting closer to taking the jump. I'm an early adopter (not a pioneer), so I typicaly wait a generation or so before I jump on new technology. But the price point and capabilities of PDAs are about at my threashold now.
Our company is planing on switching to Microsoft Exchange.Outllook later this year and that might be the straw to break the camel's back. We have GroupWise right now, which doesn't integrate with anything. There's a third-party tool, but that runs up the price and adds another layer of complexity. Palm has a built in exchange with Outlook. Therefore, I could keep one address book/calander.
One applicaiton that cought my eye is to combine the PDA with a GP and mapping software. I saw info from DeLorme (www.delorme.com) on this application. The GPS data is superimposed on the the map, either street or topigraphical, to show your current location. It also will retain data points along your path so you can anotate sites and calculate distance traveled and so on. I don't know if they have many detail foreign maps yet, but it would be a cool way to track collection sites.
