Do Palm Pre owners have to look to the past to get apps?

Come on now people, let the Palm OS apps go and move on to the future of mobile technology. I received an email notifying me that MobiHand and MotionApps announced the grand opening of the MobiHand Classic App Store that is dedicated to offering those ancient Palm OS apps to run in the MotionApps Classic Palm OS emulator. It seems a bit sad that there are still so few apps for the WebOS and Palm Pre while the Classic Palm OS emulator has to be promoted as the place to get applications.

Nokia and IBM announce Lotus Notes Traveler for S60 devices

One thing I like about current Nokia devices is that they are quite open to supporting a wide range of individual and enterprise needs with services and applications designed to help you out. I enjoy their support of Exchange ActiveSync on my E71 and other devices so I was pleased to hear the latest news on a conference call yesterday. Nokia and IBM announced today that they are partnering to bring enterprise users Lotus Notes Traveler to the S60 3rd Edition platform. Gartner data shows that IBM has a 40% share of corporate email revenue and now with Nokia's support of Microsoft Exchange, Novell Groupwise, and others Nokia supports almost all corporate email solutions with their devices.

Is there anything teachers or students need that Google Apps can't do?

I'm giving serious thought to switching our school to Google Apps from our current ISP's email system this coming summer.

How do I know what applications are updated in the Android Market?

One of my current activities include checking up on the Android Market offerings a couple of times a day because there is lots of activity going on there as developers roll out applications. However, I have several questions about how things are appearing in the Market (that were just echoed by a reader who sent me an email). I currently have something like 25+ applications loaded on the device (with only a miserable 12MB of memory left). When I visit the Android Market I like to view the By Date tab so I can see what has been added since I last visited. What appears though is not what was last added and I am confused about what is going on here.
