I have been running GTD on Filofax for a while now. As some others have reported, there is an occasional need to rewrite items when a page starts to get untidy and unattractive looking with many items crossed out.
It is the need for squared off tidiness that is making me think of switching to PDA.
I am an utter, blank, total novice with regard to PDAs. I do not know anyone who uses one, no have I ever been shown how they work or what they do. I dont know if the format is closer to Word or to Excel.
My requirements are very basic: I would like to list about three hundred projects under current or someday, plus three hundred NAs to go with them, under about 15 contexts.
If there is more capacity, I would probably add lists of wines, books, CDs, places to go.
If there is some Word-like facility for storing passages of text, I would store some quotations/affirmations, and maybe some pages with project bullet points.
Another question, what are the basic requirements for synchronising a PDA with a PC? Does the PDA have to be synched with Outlook, or can data be transferred from Word and/or Excel into the PDA? (I run two different releases of Outlook at home and in work).
Can I update my full lists of projects and NAs on PC in their appropriate lists, and then transfer the updated lists straight to PDA?
Can I basically link my PDA to my PC when I get to the office, and keep it on screen all day and update it as I go along? (Is it that cool?)
If I purchase the GTD Outlook add-in, can I install it at home and in woodwork, or do I need to buy two copies?
I would have no foreseeable requirements for graphic or sound features.
Which PDA would cover these basic requirements?
(I Hope someone has the time to answer all these!).
