(Lengthy explanation: I currently own 2 Palm pdas. One, the IIIxe, has the same name as the one I lost, and it does not and never will have TealScript. The other has it, but has a new name.)
I can select blocks of text in a semi-sane fashion using the document reader.
Writing with the stylus is still dicey, but I expected that.
My IIIxe is still amazingly useful.
The Sidekick III continues to be useful. It's a little unnerving to see how easy it is to get in the habit of using it.
