Tasks and Mobile Computing

Personal information managers (PIMs) have steadily grown in popularity over the past several years. Personal digital assistants (PDAs) are available almost everywhere and can be purchased for less than $100. With this technology explosion, many people every day attempt to use electronic tasks to replace paper planners and sticky notes.

Pocket PC devices use ActiveSync from Microsoft, and Palm devices use products such as PocketMirror and Palm HotSync Manager.
