Hipster PDA

Hipster PDA

The Hipster PDA is a paper-based personal organizer, popularized by San Francisco writer Merlin Mann. Originally a tongue-in-cheek reaction to the increasing expense and complexity of personal digital assistants, the Hipster PDA (said to stand for 'Parietal Disgorgement Aid') simply comprises a sheaf of index cards held together with a binder clip. Following widespread coverage in the media and blogs, the Hipster PDA (abbreviated 'hPDA') has become a popular personal management tool particularly with followers of David Allen's Getting Things Done methodology and users of the Fisher Space Pen.

Advocates of the hPDA claim that it is a cheap, lightweight, free-form organizer that doesn't need batteries and is unlikely to be stolen. Critics cite the lack of integration with desktop PC productivity software and point out that there is no easy way to back up the often critical information stored in an hPDA.

Although it began as a joke, or perhaps a statement about technology fetishism, the Hipster PDA has rapidly gained a population of serious users, with hundreds posting pictures of their customized hPDAs on photo sharing sites and exchanging tips on Internet mailing lists. Enthusiasts also design and share index card-size printable templates for storing contacts, to-do lists, calendars, notes, project plans, and so on.

A Hipster Nano PDA utilizes business cards (often given superfluously at trade shows) with blank backs and one that has a calendar on the back.

Wrist PDA

The Fossil Wrist PDA is a Personal Digital Assistant designed to take the place of a wristwatch.

The device, manufactured by FOSSIL , features a tiny gray 160x160 pixel screen, the same number of pixels as most palm devices up to Palm III, with 16 shades of gray. It is run on Palm OS 4.1 and has a tiny stylus hidden in the watch clasp. It is able to carry out most PDA functions, and run any normal Palm OS-compatible application. It features 8 Mb of RAM (about 7.7 Mb available to user) and 4 Mb of flash memory. Like other Palm OS devices, it can synchronize or exchange information with PC or Mac, has an infrared port, a virtual keyboard, and a touch screen. The device also has a watch mode, with several "watch faces" to display the time.

The price at debut was $200, but due the releases of newer Palm Operating Systems, and perhaps poor marketing, the price has fallen and as of January 2006 was around $79US.

However, the watch was recently discontinued, and replaced with Fossil's new line of WristNet watches, which do not run PalmOS, but can receive updates from the MSN Direct wireless service. This means the price has been going up, as collectors and enthusiasts race to get this soon to become rare watch. The models Fossil created, which have the same hardware, but a few differences in cosmetic design, were the FX2009 Wrist PDA, FX2008 Wrist PDA,and the Abacus AU5005, Abacus AU5006, and Abacus AU5008. Abacus is a subsidiary of Fossil.

Its major competitor is OnHand PC. OnHand PC has its own OS, but much longer battery life (2-3 months instead of 3-4 days), because it is a much simpler device, with a fraction of the RAM and processor power.
