I’ve had a multitude of Palm Pilots over the years. I’ve always thought they’d help me with organization, but in reality, they’ve never done more than cause frustrations. Maybe I’m doing it wrong — but it seems I end up spending more time syncing, updating, etc, and less time accomplishing anything.
I’m curious how useful handheld computers are for folks. I’ve had Windows Mobile devices, Palm devices, a smartphone, but really, nothing has helped me stay better organized. They’ve provided some entertainment, but really that’s about it.
So I wonder, is it a personality type issue? Am I destined to get little use from handheld computing? Is it a discipline issue? Should I just try harder?
