Guess I need to quickly go spend the $150 in RS gift cards currently sitting on my desk.

The keyboard on this one is mushy. The used one is earlier but has full key travel.

It was about $30 on ebay. There are many more though without the Pan Am branding.

Screenshots from my location-based service app Tower Power / Cellinfo, showing list and map of nearby restaurants.  The date for the screenshots is September 25, 2004.

Just worked VU3WIJ, Shaji in Kerala, India with my KX3 on 14.245 MHz, running 12W SSB! Got it on the first call, first call, very polite pileup no split.

There was QRN the short path so I used long path (153 degrees). Is that really 24880-8861=16019 miles?

Chicken with shallots and tarragon, from the +The New York Times -- it took me a couple of hours but everybody liked it.   http://www.nytimes.com/recipes/1016135/rishia-zimmerns-chicken-with-shallots.html

I released the source code to my Danger Hiptop / T-Mobile Sidekick apps from 2003-2005.  Because of the early date, many of these apps are the first of their kind.

One app, Tower Power, lets you find nearby restaurants and list them on a map.    

Another, Flipper, lets you message your friends directly, send the photos, query their location, and share appointments -- like Avocado, Couple, and iMessage.

Flipsheet is a spreadsheet program and my request to Danger to let me handle CSV attachments in Email messages was one inspiration for the Intent registration system in Hiptop OS, which also appears in Android!

Here's the source code, screenshots, a few links to blog articles back in the day, and other commentary:

Thanks to   Facebook post https://www.facebook.com/s4xton for getting me to do this.

And apologies to +Andy Rubin and +Brian Swetland  and others from Danger if my inclusion of my hacked-up copy of the Hiptop OS scroller widget in Flipsheet is a problem.
