I thought it would be interesting to hear how people are using their gadgets...in this case, the Touch. Is it a be-all piece of 'work' or a piece of junk? Well, mine's a 'work!!' Here's how I use mine...to start the thread.. I am gaming on it. I have solitaire, and a peg game. I also use my notes by keeping grocery lists and as a stock photographer; new ideas for photo shoots. News: I'm reading the NY Times and AP news on my Touch as well as podcasting some news items as well....NPR and Fresh Air. I keep photos on the photo utility. I change it frequently, so I have the latest stuff there. Haven't shared them much yet, but am looking forward to 'wowing' my family and friends with this little gem! I check weather daily...several times. I have used the clock to set an alarm, but find it minimally useful without a speaker....I got a chime via earphones which I happened to have on when the time ran out. Haven't used maps yet, but look forward to it. Would love to hear more from people who are using other utilities on their Touch. I'm hoping to find more uses for it. I haven't got a calendar to sync. I kept my calendar on Palm prior to Touch, and I don't think they can be synced. I also kept eReader and many books on my shelf via Palm. Have downloaded eReader to my Touch, but find it a less robust version than the Palm one. I can't find bookmarks or notes on this version. Am I overlooking something? Unfortunately, I am not yet giving up my Palm as I can't do everything on the Touch that I used to do on the Palm. Anyone else have experience with this? Oh, I also kept a financial program on the Palm that kept track of all my transactions for my business. Can't seem to find one for the Touch that did everything that I was able to do with Palm's 'Money.' Wish I could find a program that could transfer all my data from Money and keep it updated on Touch!! Anyone? Oh, I failed to mention podcasting and music that I listen to via Touch. Yes, I DO use it this way. Could have done same on Palm, but didn't. Ok, tell us how U are using your Touch.
