Google is a poor app compared to the richness of the Palm apps, let alone
korganizer, etc. I'll do everything I can to delay switching, if I can, if
that's all there is.

John - you might see if Mary is happy with what Google provides in terms

multi-point access. Until you get an Android, that is.
