15.6. Executive Tip Summary

  • Don't let conventional wisdom get you down. The PalmPilot can indeed receive pages, send faxes, make printouts, and transmit information wirelessly.

  • Your paging options are a PageMart card (which replaces the memory card door on a Pilot, PalmPilot, or original WorkPad model), which can receive pages; or a OneTouch cable/software kit that lets your PalmPilot plug into your existing beeper. Need your PalmPilot to vibrate instead of beep? Get a TaleVibes doodad that plugs into your PalmPilot's HotSync jack.

  • You can print from the PalmPilot. You may have better luck, however, by getting into the habit of faxing yourself whenever you need a hardcopy—fax software for the PalmPilot is sure-fire and cable-free (although it requires a modem).

  • If you do much beaming, consider changing the Prefs/Buttons application so that a penstroke up the face of the PalmPilot begins a beam (instead of, for example, summoning the Graffiti cheat sheet).
