I have decided not to replace my Palm T/X, which has developed severe difficulties (lost databases, infinite soft resets, et cetera) over the last few weeks. My rationale is that the time and effort spent in maintaining a consistent system across 2 computers and 1 palm was requiring too much attention, both technically (syncing it all) and organizationally (the GTD thing). Most local stores have stopped carrying PDA's, and I always pay attention to the realities of the marketplace. I have also rejected the smartphones sold by my current carrier. The best of the lot may be the Palm OS Treo's, but they are aging rapidly, and Palm (the company) may in fact be in the process of flushing itself into history.
Right now I am maintaining my project and next action lists as two computer based documents. I can print them out, or bring them up side by side. This turns out to be an effective way for me to maintain the mental connection between projects and next actions.
But why not have elegance and beauty? I am thinking about an iPhone or maybe one of the new Touch iPods. Leopard (OS X 10.5) comes out soon, and I will probably know more about the real functionality of these devices. I have also been thinking about a Levenger Circa folder, but I am afraid it is another technological trap. In any case, I am looking for relative simple GTD tools that scream simplicity, flexibility, and luxury. Any ideas?
