I picked up a used Palm z22 which is nice and light and works well. Except I am having some difficulty porting my GTD setup over to its basic tools.

I have using for a couple of month GTD quite successfully.
Until now I have only used pen and paper and I find it sometimes a bit long to update my lists so I would like to move on a software. I use a PC with Windows. I do not use Outlook. And it would be a plus if I could move data on USB....
Has anyone used the Simple*ology method as presented by Mark Joyner? I listen to the audiobook and I can see some areas fitting in with GTD. It deals with clearing you plate so you can focus on specific targets or projects. The way it deals with tasked is to do it, deliberate, or dump it. It also...

I am looking for recommendations on (preferably free) software to manage checklists for the BlackBerry. I had one on my Palm that worked just fine, but am looking for what people use here.
Any help appreciated. Thanks!
Is there a way for me to add a task to Outlook without necessarily being in Outlook? For example, if there is something that I remember all of a sudden in Firefox, I want to ability to hit a hotkey/shortcut and type in my task. Let me know if you know what I'm talking about and have a solution.
We are currently redeveloping our entire service and, simultaneously, have hundreds of new features that we would like to release.
The redevelopment has, in itself, hundreds of dependancies and so do the new features. So, what i mean to say is, A cannot be completed before B...
How often does the Productivity Principles Newsletter from davidco.com come out? I signed up a few weeks ago but haven't received one yet. I'm not sure if my spam filter is blocking it, or if the newsletters simply come out infrequently.
Thanks in advance,
I am looking to change my GTD implementation, hopefully for the better and for the long term. I know there is a tendency amongst the GTD set to constantly churn thru variations in GTD implementations. I am guilty of this in the past. So I am well aware of the time and effort involved. However, I do...

Click here: One Laptop per Child (OLPC), a low-cost, connected laptop for the world's children's education
While the merits of the project seem unquestionably good, I am wondering if anyone has any thoughts about the device itself?
I am wondering if the tasks from ical sync with the online version. That could be pretty useful if they did.
Has anyone made a conversion from Outlook to Lotus Notes after installing the Outlook Add-In tool? I am concerned about Outlook e-mails that I have acted upon by using the tool bar. For example, can I retrieve the original e-mail from and Outlook calendar item after it is converetd to Lotus Notes...

I am looking for a dedicated GTD PDA.
I know nothing about PDA's and pocket PC's so I thought I'd ask.
My main issues are that it be:
1. Cheap, I can get one used no problem
2. Easy and quick to capture. As little barriers to capture as possible would be good.
3. Able to handle the GTD...

I know there are a lot of Treo users in GTD land. Any one using the Centro?
Any advice on the must have apps for Palm OS?
