Am I a hipster or a retro solar/cyberpunk?

(Forgot to set a decent poll length last time)

Oh shoot when does ROOPLOCH end? It would be so perfect to use a PDA to write a post for it.

Gonna start a club for people that write Gemini posts on their PDAs.

One of my favorite parts of the fediverse is when a whole group of us egg each other on into some random geeky obsession out of nowhere.

They get very old.
This is dissapointing, to them

A screen flashes "Liberty Mutual"

I have no idea what liberty mutual is

I'm sitting outside to try to stop myself buying $45 of Palm stuff on a whim. I don't even have a 3D printer, how am I supposed to hack the $15 (incl. shipping) Palm Portable Keyboard into a USB keyboard? And I have a Palm TX, sure I might not be able to sync anything with it but why should I go get a whole second PDA?

I'll wait until tomorrow and then probably end up buying it all anyways and regret the extra day I have to wait for them to get here.

Ohh the Palm IIIe Special Edition is pretty. Why didn't they make more Palms like that? Or maybe I'm just too obsessed with clear shells.

And I managed to break my Palm obsession when I misplaced my Palm TX but now I'm at it again

Making the r/edc people on reddit freak out by carrying around a ton of single-purpose stuff 😎

Oh wow this thing has Bluetooth so I could try that to sync and live without a data dock. It's so tempting to just get a Palm m500 for $20 and be able to use my existing dock and everything though.

I have located my Palm TX and charging cable; but no data cable nor cradle :(

I guess I should probably try to buy one but it looks like there's only cables rather than cradles available affordably. I do have a “Palm ‘universal’ connector” cradle but that's not too helpful since the TX uses the “Palm multi-connector”

I feel that there really is something we have lost in the evolution of portable personal electronics between the PDA and the smartphone. Things I miss from PDAs: Reliability, more tactile input method, EXTREME battery life. A smartphone is clearly far more capable but a PDA was just sooo much more efficient at doing what it did and the user experience was better in a lot of ways.

I like the idea of being straight out of 2002 by carrying a Palm PDA and minidisc player around

Ohhh that's a pretty keyboard for $7+shipping. I could even hack it to be USB…

Someone posted this on one of the map subreddits and all the comments are people saying “I live in LA and I’ve never heard of korb torsons” and the OP arguing with them and it’s like the only good thing I’ve seen on there in years
