January 4, 2000
One interesting note from the Camvention last week was that I definitely felt like a second-class citizen when I whipped out my Windows CE PDA after dinner. Everyone else was beaming their Palmistry to one another, and I was in my own little digital enclave, feeling like I could use a little e-speranto.
The interesting thing to me is that most people who like the Palm are underdog apologists, definitely of the Mac-using personality type, yet they hold no truck for Windows CE despite its decided disadvantage in the marketplace. Of course, it's obvious why, but I thought it was interesting.
For the record, I have a CE device because it was a gift from my best friend, and one of the finest gifts I've ever recieved. I'm officially platform-agnostic.
