    Re: pda great......

    I've got an Acer N50 premium, had it about 2 years and the best toy I have ever bought, like said by the guys above, it is like losing your right arm when you leave it at home. I too use mine as an IR controller for the Projectors, DVD players and other AV equipment at the college, very very useful for that, as well as the PPC version of VNC as with the wi fi, I can still handle desktop support whilst walking down the corridor via PPC remote terminal services.

    I use mine for the normal stuff to like, email, MSN, contacts, calendar, DVD player with the 7" screen via the 4gb SD card from eBuyer!

    It is some kind of un-written rule, techy's just have to have PDA's.

    Check out eBuyer if you’re after a really good deal, or the following I use and have had no complaints.

    Re: pda great......

    Well update a supplier came through for us in major major way they had pda they used for something for about 4 months and had finished with it. Only thing wrong with it was the CD and manuals where missing (not a big loss) ...

    What they gave us a IPAQ 6915 seriously impressed.

    Now just need a to find place to get cheap tomtom maps

    Re: pda great......

    How about these, they are PC based as appose to PPC based though. It's amazing what you remove from the kids accounts.

    I will update with any other useful URL's.

    Does anyone know if there is a forum already active for utilities etc, i have a few which people may be interested in as well as useful links.

    Re: pda great......

    Thats the first time ive seen a game embedded into an excel file, very good at hiding them now aint they!

    Edit - btw I was realy being honest when I said games only for out of work when im bored for my PDA, not an excuse to start making me look bad for playing games in hidden excel files at work lol

    Re: pda great......

    I use mine to archive emails and to replace the pocket dairy I used to carry around but I feel like I am still under using it. How do you use a PDS to remote control school devices. Which software is best for that?

    it should have a form of remote desktop on there somewhere, if not the vnc further up is cracking.

    You can get VNC viewer to view desktops from a PPC over a wifi connection from the link below:

    http://home.utah.edu/~mcm5849/wince/vnc.html

    Another good one is the IR remote control, this allows you to add other remote controls (multiples) to make one super control. Operates via the touch screen on your PDA.

    I use this one and it is fab:

    We are just looking at buying PDAs for all our Year 6 pupils......
