    Just last week, I returned to the Psion fold. Basically to get Agenda, and a decent spreadsheet on my handheld.

    I'm going to spend some time hunting out what's still on line, but I'm a bit dismayed at the level of bitrot.

    I'm especially keen to track down eReader and wintcr.exe, which I used to use a lot.

    a little sad to see one disappear. Today it washttp://www.mbrainsoftware.com that I recall creating some great PDF software that I used to rely on for work on my NetBook many years ago.

    I share the feeling
    As someone else said: the Psion series was the last time someone took the rusk to bring out a device with
    - new hardware
    - new software (incl. OS)
    - new market

    If it had USB instead of serial and Bluetooth / Wifi instead of IRDA, I might still be using it today.

    PS: What's winctr?
