Retiring the Personal Analog Assistant
by Brian K. Jones
I used the old Franklin planner for quite some time, but I eventually realized that since I have a blackberry, and a way to synchronize in a "round trip" fashion from the blackberry to a task list, to a web-based calendar, and finally back to a local calendar, there would seem to be no gaps left for the dead-tree planner to fill.
If you found other tools useful or you're still hanging on to the Personal Analog Assistant, please share with us your thoughts on the tools you're using or the gaps that you still haven't found a digital solution for.
After reading Limoncelli's TMFSA I followed his advice and got a Palm Z22  + DateBk6 soft . I couldn't be happier with the combination! The Z22 is really lightweight (no gps, no bluethooth, no bloats), its battery lasts for more than 2 weeks and syncs its data perfectly against my Linux laptop.
