  • Palm M500

    Ok, so I just got myself a Palm m500... Now here's the question to those more advanced in tech than I; "What the heck can I do with it? How will it help me at work?"

    Or should I just throw it to ebay?

      I have a Palm E2. I use mine for the calendar; email; reminders for appointments and meetings; storing pictures; e-books; Scrabble; solitaire; and storing Word documents. It's a very handy tool.

          You... got a M500.

          Well, its Palm OS 4.0, so there's a lot of old programs you can run on it. I have a Sony Clie which runs Palm OS 5.0, and runs by emulation Palm OS 3 and 4 applications.

          The big thing about Palm devices is that you cannot multitask. When they made Palm OS, they skimped on the licensing package for the "microkernel" (Which handles telling the device itself what to do, the programs talk to the OS and the OS talks to the microkernel, sorta like BIOS) and they're only allowed to run one process at a time.

          This means that while you're in the Calendar Application, nothing else can be open or running.

          So, what can you do with it? You can run any Palm OS 1.0 to 4.0 application, you may be able to upgrade it to Palm OS 4.5 (depends on model).

          Did it come with a cradle and cable, or just a cable to connect it to the PC? That's how you get apps on it.

          You'll need a copy of Palm Desktop 4.0 for the M500, as well, if you didn't get a CD. I wouldn't bother ebaying it, though. They're ancient.

            I got the cradle, and power cord, and the USB connector... I guess my brain is on strike, as I can't seem to down load squat-well I got the palm desktop thingy but that seems to be it.
