Daughters 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 and reviewers 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 you'll be able to discuss the mystery while it happens.  The first five emails can be viewed on PDA247.

The authors have been kind enough to extend a special price of US$2.99 (regular $4.99) for those who wish to take part. If you'd like to participate, you can sign up here any time prior to the start date."

"Deceptively simple yet precise program"

Kevin Agot, editor of Re:Views and associate writer at Palm Addict, recently 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."

New Reviews
Trip Boss

"(A)n indispensable travel program"

May C. has reviewed Trip Boss on her blog, maceyr's palm discovery.  Her entry is more than just a review, it's a mini-tutorial, complete with flash animations to show you how it works.  If you want to see a great overview of what Trip Boss can do, please take a look at her write-up:  "So, at first glance, this program seems like an interesting trip program but when you start to look deeper in it, you realize how feature rich it really is!..And now, with version 2.0, this really makes it an indispensable travel program."

Some of our favorite websites to visit for PDA news, reviews, forums, and opinion:
maceyr's palm discovery
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 palm discovery a look!
