OK, so this year my Christmas list included a PDA. A what, you may ask? A Personal Digital Assistant. You’ve seen them around. Those handheld things that people are always writing notes in, or playing games on.
Aha, but PDAs are so much more! Having a PDA is just like having all the power of your computer in your hand. Some basic features are:
Datebook—You can input meetings, appointments, etc. in the same format as your Day Planner.
Memo Pad—Imagine getting rid of all those reminder notes you write yourself! You can jot down your favorite book, questions to ask someone the next time you see them, etc..
Calculator—Math, need I say more?.
To Do List—Again, no more notes misplaced on the countertop. Write your shopping list, phone calls to make, reminders for your spouse, etc..
Address Book—To keep track of all those people you need to send thank you cards to for holiday presents..
On-screen Keyboard—Lets you type by touching the screen with your stylus..
Backlight—Priceless in dim lighting. Great for jotting down notes in the dark..
In addition, many PDAs will allow you to listen to music, download photos, email, and play games. .
