Ultra Low Budget PDA

When my brother Dave has some information he needs to keep track of he'll add it to his palm. Not his palm pilot, but the actual back of his hand.

My Brother's entire information managment system is based on writing notes on the back of his left hand (never his right, what are you strange?).

He likes the system quite a bit. The main advantages include:

(1) cheap - all you need is a $0.05 ballpoint pen

(2) un-losable - chances are you won't lose your right hand. And if you do, you've got bigger problems than losing your todo list.

(3) excellent battery life - it can run easily for 80+ years

(4) there when you need it - you aren't going to leave it at home.

There are only a few downsides to this system:

(1) ink poisoning?

(2) limited, non-extsensible memory

(3) keeping an item on your list may mean skipping a shower for the day

Thanks Dave for providing yet another PDA idea.

  1. It's not really that strange that he writes only on his left hand if he is right handed.
