In a previous post, I discussed my obsessive quest to turn a retro device, the Palm Tungsten E (TE), into something that works for today’s discerning user. During my research, I found that most of the archived Web documents I was stumbling across were from, say, 2003, 2005, or 2007—rarely anything more recent. The Tungsten E2 is far more often discussed, and you can still buy it for $199, whereas the TE is not available for purchase through Palm’s Web site. Many TE applications are no longer available or supported.

I have a Palm Tungsten E (known among Palmanistas as the TE) that I no longer use much. Yesterday and today, inspired by a bad back left over from hauling a slew of electronic equipment hither and yon while traveling, I sat down and attempted to get this old workhorse to do everything to keep me entertained for a whole day of transit. I like to read, listen to music, and watch videos—and the videos are important to me because my portable DVD player is heavy. I have a hard drive full of .avi files that I want to be able to watch while on the road; currently I burn them to CD or DVD.
