Crash proof PDA's???

by deftlyd / June 14, 2004 7:28 AM PDT

OK I've had lousy luck with PDA's that are too unstable or have short enough battery life that I can't get them from work to home or vice versa and rely on them not crashing on me or take them for a weekend and not have the battery die.

All I need is an address book and scheduler that's compatible with the Palm OS's Palm Desktop. Has anyone had exceptionally good luck with their handheld and if so what model?

Mmmmm.... My Palm IIIc is now close to 4 years old. About all I ever did were those screen protectors and it sits in the charging cradle when I'm home. It's never been dropped, smashed or cursed at. Even the rain has never hit it.

the rain has hit my Zire 71, albeit gently, its battery life is 7 hours, or about a week with no charging, and I only had crashing problems in the beginnign when I was installing software.

What do you do? PLay games on it? Make sure your palm isn't turning on in your pocket accidentally. Dont play music. No reason it shouldn't work.

www.boxwave.com has a collection of good quality "snyc-chargers" that will charge your PDA from a computer's USB port and attachments that allow you to run off cigarette lighter. I have one for my Palm Tungsten E and it's great!

It will also allow you to "hot sync" with other computers if you have the need for that.

Back it Up!

You need to back it up constantly (with an app and expansion card or a back-up device)and carry around extra power. RAdioshack sells back-up power devices if yours is rechargeable.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
