We discuss the current state of ALP, as Sean writes in:
Second, is it me, or have you guys not talked about the Access Linux Platform. I got the opportunity to look at a video of it the other day, it it made my mouth water. All I ever hear you guys talk about is Nova (and you're the only guys that call it that. Everyone else is calling it Garnet OS), and unless I'm incorrect, you guys haven't talked about this at all. The Access Linux Platform is WAY further along that the Garnet OS platform. As a matter of fact, at the cell phone show in Barcelona, they put out the SDK for the Access Linux Platform. Is there a particular reason why you all haven't covered this product, or am I totally brainless and you all have been talking about it and I haven't been listening hard enough. Take care.
PalmOS Treo and Centro on 10.5, Jensen writes in:
Palm Desktop with iSync conduits: Palm's official line is that iSync for Palm is broken under Leopard and they provide no support for any Palm/Treo/Central devices using iSync. They recommend purchasing Missing Sync to overcome this deficit.
To reiterate: if you buy a brand-new Centro today, you will not be able to sync it with iCal/iSync without purchasing additional third-party software. In addition, Palm will not give support for iSync issues; only for Palm Desktop itself (with its built-in calendar and contact application).
Through personal experience, Palm Desktop itself has a lot of issues as well that go unacknowledged by Palm. For example, Transport Monitor unexpectedly quits all the time, necessitating a manual launch of that app each time I want to sync. I also have to often throw out preference files for Palm Desktop every time I want to set up a Palm to bluetooth hotsync.
Wendy writes in:
Anyway, I've been searching high and low for a Palm application which would do the following, when it is running: Take a picture and upload it to a web site at a specified frequency.
This seems like it should be a fairly straightforward application, causing the Treo to function like a webcam. Yet I can't seem to find anything that fits the bill. The closest thing I can find is a program that turns the Treo into a webcam, but requires that you hook it up via USB to a PC with internet if you want to do anything with the pictures.

We play their song "Scott Bakula" at the end of the TreoCast, but there's also this sweet video:
Solutions for Wendy: we're not entirely sure there's the exact app out there, haven't found it yet. But:
