Email Follows You EVERYWHERE!
Let's face it: email has made our lives easier, especially those of us who travel, because we can remain 'in-touch' while on the road. But if you're like most everyone else, establishing a wired connection in some places sometimes can be very difficult.
The introduction of the Palm VII and its wireless connection to the Internet was a step in the right direction ... but that is first-generation in an industry wide open for expansion.
Take, for example, the ability to use other Palm devices to connect to the Internet and retrieve email. A company in San Mateo, CA called Corsoft Corp. is about to unveil a device that can do just that.
Called 'Aileron,' Corsoft has made a beta release available for download from its Web site. Commercial release is expected soon.
Voice of the Editor
Which isn’t completely true. I mean, occasionally I drop by when I manage to sneak out of the nonstop frat party over at Going Concern, but I’m mostly a wallflower over there. I’m happy to say that I’ve been given express permission (or explicit orders, if you like) to wander over here to AccountingWEB more often.
Why is that, you might ask? My job is to replace the irreplaceable Gail Perry as Editor-in-Chief. What does that mean? I don’t really know! I think it’ll be fun getting a feel for things, throwing in my own thoughts here and there, and listening to the discussions you’re having about the accounting profession.
