What Is Wrong With Windows Mobile Converged Devices

What I don't enjoy is that all of these features don't really play that well with each other. One of my daily rituals is to wake up before everyone else, grab a cup of coffee and read my bible for a while. About three years ago, I stopped doing that with my Pocket PC. To be sure, I still use Laridian PocketBible quite a bit, mostly for research and when traveling, but in the mornings, I can't concentrate for all of the popup toast telling me I have another new message. Many of my co-workers are in time zones that make emails from 4-7am pretty common. I don't want to turn my phone off, I want those emails coming in, and I just don't want to be notified of every one of them at that time of the morning. So I actually went out and purchased a paper bible to match a translation I have been using on my Pocket Bible for several years. I got another one for Christmas this year, and right now, I have to admit that paper feel has something about it lacking in the digital version.  (Source: Ed Hansberry, Pocket PC Thoughts)
