Toshiba has a released software upgrade the e740. Being a self-avowed Toy Sucker, I had a strong need to upgrade. Without going into the gory details, I bricked my PDA - I think. I don't know if this is a by-product of getting old or not, but my distaste for technology is getting pretty extreme. I mean, using it is as fun as it ever was, but making it work is getting stale. Whether it be tinke ring with Radio or upgrading my handheld, this just isn't fun anymore. Why aren't human interface designers and software architects jumping all over this? Doesn't ease-of use sell? Microsoft and Apple seem to be getting their collective acts together as it relates to desktop computing, but the second that a user strays from the familiar confines of a desktop PC, that's where all bets are off. Even doing something as simple as setting up a Palm V to hotsync with an XP machine via USB turned out to be a major hassle for me not so long ago. Agh. And now, to top it all off, I've got another brick to lug around. At least they both look cool and one actually works.
