Blackcrow I have had a Palm Z22 for roughly 2 1/2 years, I stopped using it very roughly 1 1/4 years ago.
Because I find that my level of Organising doesnt warrant a need for the ability to plan my day by the hour.
I bought a PDA, because I thought it would help me be organised, but I found it was just overkill, an analogy for me would be "taking a 4x4 with a big engine, just to get to the end of my street" in organisation terms, or "Swatting a fly with a Jackhammer"
Because I dont need to such detailed information for my level of organisation such as Time, Place, "meeting type" and an Alarm.

Thing that annoyed me specifically was the slow latency of the Stylus Tracking on the Palm Z22, compared to lets say a Ball-Point pen wrting on paper.
I found I couldnt write nearly as fast with a Stylus, as I could do with an Ink-Pen.

My Question is this.
Where can I find a PDA/Smartphone that has a Stylus that reacts almost quickly as an Ink-pen or at least perceptibly(In Human terms) as fast as an Ink-Pen.

My dream organisational device is 11x15 cm, uses color E-paper, and can be used with a variety of "Stylus modes" such as:
Ink, Charcoal, Felt-tip, Acrylic, Water-Colour, Oil-paint.
Has a each e-page arranged like a regular diary, which can be changed by pressing a "turn page" buttton.
With all the extra stuff you get in the Digital-domain like:
Syncing.
Erasing whole days(No more angry rants, I sometimes put in mine, for example..."So and So, is a complete Bastard...etc etc")
Copy and Pasting.
Pinch and Zoom.

Unless the digital medium can supply me with all this, in a form thats smaller than 15x9 inches(that means you Ipad) then they will never be as good as a paper diary.

Andy_Influx cool story bro.

my smart phone has a calendar where i can do all that and im faster typing with a touch pad keyboard than i am physically writing with my hand and a pen so....

have fun carrying around a diary.
Triquatra I don't have either!

Both my Phone, and my Palm Z22(Traditional PDA), force me to set a Time & Alarm for all my appointments/reminders/to-do's.
Which I find makes it harder for me to organise, as I am a human, and [sic] organic in my nature of mind. And I found running my life by Alarms made me less organised.

I assume your Smartphone offers you the option of NOT popping up a dialogue box each time you want to set a reminder, to ask you whether you want to be at X at Precisely 10h:20s, and 030ms, and what kind of Appointment it is, what kind of underpants you'll be wearing...etc...etc.

Or maybe I have just been unlucky in finding an electronic means of organisation that doesn't Oblige me into having to set a damm Alarm each time?

It was special delivery.
There are some things I need to write down, shopping lists for example, but mostly stuff gets put in memory.

It makes sense to have a time and alarm for appointments. That's the point. So you don't miss it and you know where it is and have enough time to get there.

"pool 10 am" is not an appointment. If its not important enough to warrant a notification then use your brain.

It offers the option of turning off a notification, you can also set the time for "all day" so it only warns you once. You wont find any sort of electronic device that doesnt open a dialogue box because the whole point is for it to remind you of something.

You know why you find these annoying? Cos it doesn't look like you have anything worth putting into a ****ing calendar. No wonder you're annoyed by being reminded of it.

If i set a reminder to my phone, i choose from 5 different types. Depending on the type it either has an alarm or it doesn't, among other things.

^That diary in the picture isn't mine. :D
Thats just a random picture I pulled of the web.
Blackcrow Don't take this the wrong way guys, but I heard somewhere that people who don't need diaries generally don't really think things about much and don't have much of an imagination, or any great aspirations for themselves.

I would hazard a guess at saying both Albert Einstein, and Steven Hawking, kept a diary
Triquatra I heard somewhere that people who need diarys have small genitalia

How very mature.
Triquatra no less mature than your claim, which is equally founded on anecdotal evidence.
JustIncredible I thought only 12 year old girls kept diaries.

"Don't take this the wrong way guys, but" *baseless insult*

Have fun grabbing a citation for that one, dude.
Blackcrow Alright, I am sorry.
Forgive me.
Hard2Get I've not read any of the rest of the thread (edit: now i have), but just saw what Lawlzy quoted. You're joking right?

A good response. The original comment is one of the most outrageous things i have ever seen anyone say while being serious. If i didn't know better I'd be sure it was an (shockingly poor) attempt at trolling. It literally makes as much as the saying the same thing about people but changing the word diary with cabbage; because of me liking cabbage (just an example).
JustIncredible Can't believe no one noticed this yet:

I assumed he always was. Interesting.
Blackcrow You know you don't need to metaphorically Lynch someone when they blurt out something inappropriate. We all make mistakes its what make us human, and then we learn from them.

Are you telling me you have never blurted out something inappropriate and then later regretted?

No I suppose not, your all freaking perfect socialites like that I suppose aren't you? Its so easy for you.
Its SOOO EASY to be the person who criticizes the other person for something inappropriate isn't it!?
Is SOOO Easy.

wong yeah

I can't tell if you are joking or not with that last bit. Anyway, it's just a sentence that was read on a forum, and a response was posted accordingly. We don't know anything about you personally, all we have to go on is the sentence that you posted. Nobody knows what your real intention is with what you are saying. Which may or may not render the responses meaningless. Either way it's a forum, it's not personal one way or the other. Who cares.

hmm, nah I reckon they were born with the brain thing too. Diaries are for people with full (or no) brains, they need to put their every thought onto paper.

Remember that this is coming for the person that came on here complaining that he wanted to work for free for woolworths but they didn't let him. All he wanted to do was talk to his friend. No I didn't need a diary to remember that.

Yes, but never in the way that you apocalyptically fuck things up.
