Clie and Plucker Fun

2005-09-21 11:13 ☼ post

Today I’ve been playing with a Sony Clie PEG-SJ20 that was given to me at work and I think I’m going to hang on to it. I was able to get it talking to my Mac without much difficulty (and synching my Entourage calendar even!) and usb hot-synching is so much faster than the original serial based system. I really like the 320x320 screen too. It’s strictly 16 level gray scale, but that makes for a very nice little electronic document reader and that’s one of my primary interests for a pda at this point anyway.

Speaking of electronic documents, there are a variety of readers for the Palm platform, but Plucker seems the nicest to me since it’s open source and highly flexible. Converting html documents into Plucker form is actually pretty easy. There’s even a Voodoo2Palm droplet available for converting Voodoopad documents to Plucker format that I want to play with down the road.

In the meantime here are a few sites with electronic documents in Plucker Format:
