[maemo-users] Decent PIM for the N8x0

IMHO, the world doesn't need another PIM.  What it needs is a system to 
sync with a commonly available system (like google docs, email, & 
calendar) and a universal port of that software to whatever platform one 
is using (including tablets).  When one edits on the local, it syncs 
with Google and visa versa -- all in a rather seamless brain dead 
fashion.   Kind of like how FoxMarks in Firefox to sync browser 
bookmarks...    (like when is that option going to come to tablets?)

 So big deal, OpenOffice isn't currently available on the tablets, which 
means OO docs can't be edited on the tablet.  However, there's 
apparently several ways to convert OO docs into pdf files to 'sync' with 
the online docs, in an uneditable fashion.  Deal with it...  Offer the 
option to sync to tablets (or wherever) in pdf if editing options aren't 
available.  Even with systems that have editing options, having a pdf 
(non-editing option) might be preferable.  Don't waste time reinventing 
the wheel...  Just make it so it spins easier, faster, freer and in more 
places than ever...

Always, Fred C
