Bloggin' down the highway

Ooh, I'm blogging from my HP Jornada Handheld PC! Now all I have to do is get a wireless card and then there will be no place safe from my blogging!

I have also noticed that the blog looks like ass in the tiny little WinCE version of IE. Oh well.

Andrea, you HAVE to get MultiIE...it "integrates" with Pocket IE and allows you to open multiple windows and do a few other things that make it worthwhile.

FWIW, 3-column MT blogs generally show up very well on my Audiovox Maestro...NO scrolling left/right at all! And you're right, once you get a wireless card, you might as well just resign your position as a functioning member of society...I can surf & blog non-stop, all day & night, in bed, in the garage, in the WC, wherever!

Will it work in the HP Jornada Handheld PC 680? It's not a palmtop I have, but this older model. It's got a whatever WinCE 2.0 comes with.

Can you hack a website from it, though?

[erm---no 720? it's 10x nicer than that 680...or I thought so, anyway]

I'm an 820 fan myself...so much so that I just now received my new "spare" 820 from the snow-covered UPS man. The 820 has a bigger screen and a bigger keyboard than the 720, but it's still dinkier than the smallest laptop, and HP did a great job with the teeny touchpad. I've been getting 12+ hours of use per charge out of it (that's with no PCMCIA accessories running, of course).

Not only that, but you can get them for around $250 on eBay...720s are still up around $400-$500.
