I started out with a Casio in about 1995 but I don’t think I have it anymore because I couldn’t find it. The Mac Newton is around but I don’t know where. I can only find the accessories for it at the moment. Here they are, complete with dust!
I had two different Psions but I could only find one of them. These ran on penlight batteries and the battery cover did not fit all that tightly. Twice I lose all my information when the batteries fell out. The first time I threw myself on my bed and sobbed my eyes out. The second time, I switched to Palm Pilot. But I had sync problems with both my V and my Tungsten where the calendar source file was corrupted and I tried to sync over backup but it corrupted all the data and I had to re-enter everything.
I used a Palm Pilot for years. My students all used to use paper at that stage. I was so good at the Palm Pilot alphabet that when the Palm Life Drive came out I couldn’t use the regular alphabet anymore. At the end of the LifeDrive era the Palm Treo came out which was a bad phone with a good PDA. The other choice was a good phone with a bad PDA.
So it was back to Filofax for me (I have always preferred ring binders over bound planners) and I have never looked back. I won’t go back to digital in a hurry. So, if you used digital before, why did you switch back to paper? And if you use a combination, how do you integrate paper and digital?
If you use a combination organiser + iPad cover, which one do you use and how do you like it?
