And you can be sure it's missing the feature you want to have because of company politics. I don't care about company politics and I'm not going to be their beta-tester. Sorry, I bought to much techie-stuff to early and it never was worth the money...

Perhaps one day. But I want to control the feature set and how it's done. Do you think these companies will support MP3 files in the future? I don't, they will crippel things with all kind of: you are not allowed to use XYZ this way, because we don't like it. Thank you but I can decide this myself.

Yeah, but unfortunately BeOS is dead and I'm sure Palm will succeed in breaking it down to useless state... Robert
