    Talking All of the things I can do on my PPC 6600

    All of the things I can do on my PPC 6600

    1. Email
    2. Use the internet
    3. Voice Recorder
    4. Digital Camera
    5. Camcorder
    6. Flashlight
    7. Gameboy
    8. Phone
    9. Video Player
    10. PIM (Personal Information Manager)
    11. MP3 Player
    12. Radio (Internet)
    13. Word Processor
    14. E-books
    15. Instant messenger
    16. GPS Mapping
    17. Calculator
    18. ???

    How much would it cost me to buy all of these things? It helps to justify the price of it.
    What else can you use the 6600 for?

    Talking

    I use it as an alarm clock. Very reliable. I just wish that I could just tap anywhere on the screen and it would stop and/or snooze. The button is kind of small to tap to get it to stop. Other than that it works great.

    I use pTravelAlarm from burroak.on.ca. It has a large SNOOZE area on the screen. I love it!

    It's not a chick magnet. Usually quite the opposite.

    Looking for chicks, get a puppy

    Smile I forgot about the alarm clock

    Maybe this thing is a chick magnet, because I carry the phone in my pocket and when my wife sees me, she ask's if I am happy to see her or is that a phone in your pocket!

    Can this thing heal my far sightedness, and make my eyes see as they did 7 years ago? Okay, I'll settle for toast and coffee

    Man, I gotta move to Baltimore. You should've seen the dirty looks I got from the girl I was with at a New Year's ball when I pulled out my xv6600 to send a couple of "Happy New Year" SMS messages, not to mention "You brought your PDA!??!?". Sounds like the chicks down there are a little more tech-savvy.

    Oh, to add to the list:

    quick question - can you use the Camara Flash as a light?

    Were you all just talking about using the screen in general because that is very helpful!

    You can use the flash as a light when you're taking a video...any coders out there want to write a program to turn on the light?

    Podcast are great to listen to, except I need more memory. i just have 512megs on my sd card and I use most of it(mp3, Seinfeld, pictures ect...) so I am waiting on the 2 gig sd cards to come out.
    When will they be out and how much will they be?

    I got tired of waiting and picked up a 1GB card. In a while, I'll grab an additional 2GB card.

    Ditto on just about every thing listed on this thread. I am currently looking at hook up my Satellite TV to my computer to stream it to my 6600.

    I also use my 6600 to gain positive recognition...aka huge browny points....with my Boss and the VPs. Sitting in a hotel lobby, they are all asking what the stats are for the day and I say, hold on....whip out the phone....connect to my computer back at the office...pull up all the stats and drill down to any bit of info they want or need. They all have Blackberries. It is like comparing a plain Hostess mini doughnut to a Crispy Cream Chocolate toped Boston Cream. Which one would you chose if it was setting in the lunch room table? It's all about chosing the best tools for the job.

    As for a chick magnet....it may not have the sexy figure, but it sure demands attention. I am very happily married, but I can only laugh at how many times while travelling my 6600 has attracted the attention of girl, and more often than not...a very attractive girl....while waiting at the airport or in flight and started some long conversations.
