An introduction to using the hand-held personal organizer known as the PalmPilot and related software. Presenting images of the screen alongside advice, the author discusses using features such as the date and address books, the Do list, and the memo pad; communicating via emails, the Web, faxes, newsgroups, and telnet; and organizing and managing information.

Author Notes

Jeff Carlson divides his time between Web design--through his Seattle company Never Enough Coffee Creations --and writing and editing, as a freelance author and as Managing Editor of the weekly electronic newsletter TidBITS. Jeff is also the founder of eSCENE, the annual anthology of the best short fiction on the Web. His pioneering use of the Palm organizer is causing an epidemic of PalmPilot purchases at his office, where he rushes around, PalmPilot in hand, asking, "Wanna see something cool?"
