Found old Palm wireless universal keyboard, do I have any use for this?

While cleaning out my closet, I found an unopened and unused Palm "Universal" Wireless keyboard that I obtained years ago but never used. I no longer have any Palm products; the only devices I could use it with would be a Droid 2, iMac, or Dell XPS laptop. Is there anyway to use this keyboard with what I have, or do I have no use for it? [more inside]

Uses for an old PDA

I found my old Palm T|X today. It doesn't (AFAIK) do anything my mobile phone doesn't do these days, and it's considerably bulkier, but it seems like a waste to just recycle it. Is there anything interesting I can do with an aging PDA? [more inside]

Centro won't sync

My Palm Centro will not sync with a pc. Originally thought that the cable was bad so I bought a new one. However it still will not sync. I have found several fixes on the web, and tried most, but none have worked. The one solution I have not tried yet is a hard reset of the phone. I am afraid that if I still can not sync after a hard reset I will need a new phone. I took the phone to Sprint and their answer was you it will not sync, we can sell you a new phone. Has anyone else had this problem and been able to fix it?

Why does this trick with my arm work?

Why does this trick work? Turn your palm face up. To turn your palm face down you must twist your wrist, right? But if you do six simple moves you can turn your palm face down without twisting your wrist. The trick appears at the beginning of this talk by Lennart Green but can also be done backwards.

I'm looking for a PDA that can playback lecture recordings that are MP3 format and that can speed them up or slow them down on-the-fly. A bookmarking feature for the MP3's would be nice also.

How to replace my Palm Tungsten E charger today?

I have lost the charger for my Palm Tungsten E. I know I can buy a replacement online, but I need to use my Palm quickly and don't want to wait for something to be shipped if I can avoid it. Most stores don't seem to stock the charger for the E, since it's an older model. My question: will the charger from any other Palm/Treo/Handspring model work with my PDA, and if so, what stores (in the greater Atlanta area) are likely to carry it?
