A wireless keyboard...

The best input method for those who write more then a few notes is a nearly full-sized portable keyboard that connects to the PDA wirelessly (IrDA or Bluetooth) and then folds up to fit in your pocket.

Aside from that, other types of input include:
1.) The virtual keyboard that comes with Windows Mobile.
2.) A third-party virtual keyboard, such as Resco Keyboard
3.) Regular handwriting, using Notes (included) or third-party software.
4.) Transcriber, the utility included in Windows Mobile that attempts to convert your handwriting into ptyped text.
5.) Letter/Block Recognizer...similar to $4 and included in Windows Mobile.
6.) Third-party voice recognition software, though I must say I haven't found any decent options for the PDA.
7.) A small snap-on keyboard...think of the keyboard built into a Palm treo, the Motorola Q, etc. This option varies from model to's designed for a specific PDA only.
8.) Through the use of your can access and use your PDA through your computer using a third-party program such as Pocket Controller.

Hope this helps,

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?
