Brighthand is continuing my education (of course, that's why the site is listed in my RSS reader). You see, I haven't actually worked with a Smartphone, so I didn't know until now that they don't come with Microsoft Office Mobile, and therefore cannot edit Office documents, although some Smartphones ship with apps that allow one to view said documents.*
Thanks to Brighthand, I am even more firmly convinced that I never want a Smartphone (unless a plain old phone is my only other choice). Now, if the folks at Brighthand would tell me how to turn off (temporarily) Microsoft Direct Push on a Windows Mobile Treo (without turning off the phone), I could happily close one of the support calls in my queue. On my phone, it seems to be just a matter of hitting the button in the Comm Manager, but I can find nothing like that on the Treo.
*Sounds like one of the reasons I said a reluctant goodbye to Palm years ago.
