    circuit city has voice command for $26.99

    the store had it for $29, so i asked them to check the site, and they charged me $26.99

    it's version 1.01, but the update to 1.5 is a free d/l from:

    i had some trouble with it initially. Here is what I had to do (i think, it was 2am saturday):

    Hard reset to wipe the device clean after a few failed upgrade attempts
    uninstall and reinstall activesync
    install vc 1.0 from cd
    install 1.5 download over top
    synchronize

    Kind of a PITA, but it was also the first thing i had ever installed on a ppc (i'm a new convert from palm, so for those with experience it might go more smoothly.


    it's well worth it in the end, it works great now.

    It's just the way the install is written (expects to find VC installed), and the fact that VC is always resident in memory on the PPC. The trick is to first Uninstall VC via ActiveSync by unchecking the checkbox, leaving it installed on the Desktop (don't do Remove, otherwise the upgrade will say you don't have VC installed). I did a soft reset on the device here to 'clear' any remnant of VC from it as well. Then, when you go to install the upgrade, it finds that you have VC already installed on the PC, updates the PC's install to v1.5, and then installs the newly updated v1.5 onto the PPC.
