Cross Platform GTD-Friendly PDA needed
I've been using a Palm m505 synced to my office PC for several years now, originally had the ridiculous Franklin/Covey software, got rid of that and went back to Palm software, which is still very unstable and clunky, at least for me. I've managed to shoe-horn GTD methodology onto it, (which yeah, I know would work better for me if I'd do my Weekly Reviews, well... weekly).
I've got a new, absolutely gorgeous iMac at home now, am forced to use windows at work, need a PDA onto which I can migrate all my Palm data, one that works well with GTD on both platforms. I've never used Outlook so am unfamiliar with it or any of the similar Mac applications. I need the PDA for travel and to transfer data between home and office.
Can my iPod be made to suffice? Does this give me an excuse to go get an iPhone? Can I get something that will get a few more years out of my existing antique Palm m505? (I know they'd love to sell me new one as this one does have issues such as switching itself on in my briefcase and letting the battery run down.)
I'm sure these questions have been answered before here on the forum but rather than spend several hours doing my due diligence I thought I'd go the lazy route and just ask the question upfront.
Palm E2 synchs to both Mac and PC
My Palm Tungsten E2 came with both Mac and PC Palm Desktop software. I believe the $99 Zire I tried for a while did as well, though I never ran the Mac software on it. My wife uses Macs and we have an old laptop that I tried it out on, though I use PCs myself. The E2 synched fine to both; I just didn't like that on the Mac Palm software all the categories showed up when assigning a task or memo, not just the task categories on tasks, for instance.
