of Freya Group Read
Our friends at PDA247
are hosting a group read
of email- mystery "The
Daughters of Freya." We're
excited to participate in this new mode of storytelling and thought
we'd share it with you. Plus, it lends itself well to PDA reading.
"The story - about a journalist
investigating a cult in California - unfolds
through e-mail messages deposited in your inbox a few times a day over
the course of three weeks. It's a new way to use the Internet
as a storytelling tool, and the mystery has been getting a great
response from readers
alike. (You can read the synopsis here.)"
On Sunday, March 12,
the "Group Read" begins. The idea is to have a group
of people read the mystery at the same time, and discuss it in an
online forum as it unfolds. The Group Read will begin at 9:30 p.m.
(EST) on March 12, when the first installment of the mystery will be
emailed to readers. A forum will be set up on PDA247's website where
be able to discuss the
mystery while it happens. The first five
emails can be viewed on PDA247.

reviewed Date Wheel. You can read the review on Palm
Addict or via his blog.
"Date Wheel can be used for a wide variety of estimable tasks: from
calculating the number of days till your upcoming wedding to the number
of days it will take to complete a certain project at home or work."

Although we had visited May's blog "maceyr's palm discovery"
previously, we didn't have a chance to discover its true value until
recently. Her blog is atypical--her entries are not short
musings, rather, more detailed tutorials. May's blog is a must
read for those who really want in-depth information and analysis on how
to do things with your Palm, including some essential software.
May takes a very thorough look and writes a very detailed viewpoint on
such topics as "Why Palm?", "Getting Started", and "Palm
Problems." Maceyr's Palm Discovery is not just for newbie Palm
users, but also quite valuable for seasoned users as well. If you
want to learn more about fully using your Palm device, complete with
animations, be sure to give maceyr's
discovery a look!
