Today’s meeting went pretty well I think, though it was short due to the event next door. We discussed the new HPUG website (you’re looking at it) and some good sources for news and updates about PalmOS software. Finally we covered a bit what a “blog” is and how it’s changing where you can get your news and what sort of information you can get online. Here are some of the sites we covered:
- Palm InfoCenter
- Probably the best PalmOS news site but the quality has gone down a bit lately. Usually good comments on the articles
- PDA Buzz
- Currently experiencing technical difficulties, but a really good all-around site. Very active forums and good timeliness with breaking news.
- Used to be the best around but is now seldomly updated.
- The Gadgeteer
- Great and very thorough reviews of gadgets in general but they most always cover the latest PalmOS units.
- Visor Central
- Good, but visors themselves are dead, so there’s not a whole lot happening on the site anymore.
- Treo Central
- The best resource I’ve seen for Treo news and resources.
- Palm Gear
- In my opinon, the best place to browse and buy PalmOS software. At the meeting we couldn’t get this site to pull up, but now it seems to be working just fine again.
After that discussion we went to the Microsoft event next door that talked mainly about Office 2003 Personally I was underwhelmed and disappointed, but I’ll write more about that later.
