Truly mobile data
PalmOne 'Life Drive' photos surface
But the pictures, and the rumoured specification of the device in them, point to something more significant that merely the next Tungsten to be released. If the speculation is accurate, the new PalmOne device marks a major step on the path toward personal data that's truly mobile, truly with us at all times.Read the whole thing.
PDAs evolved to hold personal information - address books, calendars, notes and so on. While they're traditionally what's meant by the phrase 'personal information', it's a very narrow definition. These days, we can add photos, music tracks and home videos, but why not all the Word documents and Excel spreadsheets we create for ourselves? All the CD, VHS and DVD covers knocked up on QuarkXPress, Freehand or Photoshop? All the PDFs the replace long-lost hardware and software manuals? Recipes, tax filings, Flash animations showing the expansion of the Western Front during World War I - personal information is a remarkably broad category, and there's no reason why folk won't want to take all this stuff with them wherever they go, even if they can't do so yet.
