It's worth mentioning that the exact same statement could be made of piece
of notepaper, or more on the topic an old 32k sharp organizer. Granted, the
palm has more features than either of those (especially the paper), but the
point is, while many people like to say form and size are ALL important
negating power completely, it's not true. While size might be of more
importance to many people, power and elegance are not to be discounted so

Yes, I admit it. I can carry a Palm Pilot much more easily than I can a
Newton. But, since the Palm pilot can't do what I need it to do, I may as
well carry around that piece of paper.
