Here are a three tips to consider if your battery is not holding a charge like you think it should... 1. Does your Clie "come on" when you have it in your pocket, your purse, or in its case? Engaging the "Hold" button will prevent it from accidentally coming on. Alarms still sound, but you […]

Tip #17-Some Clie and Palm Resources

This tip isn't so much a tip as a list of resources. Most are probably obvious to you, but for those who are very new to the Clie and Palm world, here are several good sources for information, news, and third-party applications. In no particular order: PALM APPS PalmGear.com This has been the "definitive" source […]

Tip #14-Try an Alternate Picture Viewer

The included Clie Viewer program, while good intentioned, suffers from lethargy.

True one-handed Launcher operation: I don't like the default CLIE Launcher and I can't wait for new OS 5 compliant launchers. I tried to like the new launcher, but it seems to take too many jog dial turns to find and select a program, and I find it hard to navigate from category to category […]
