    Thanks for the post Ed. Also wanted to say a big thank you for your articles in the PIC era which I always enjoyed reading. Just recently joined tablet pc review and look forward to reading your articles again.

    Palm Infocenter. Now there's a name I've not heard in a long, long time. A long time.

    Welcome to Tablet PC Review, David!

    Sadly, the sale is now over. "How To Cook Everything" is now $10 again, Infinity Blade II is $7, and all the other titles are back to their regular prices. I hope everyone got the apps they were interested in while they were free.

    On the other hand, at least 60% of Apple Apps are "Zombies" - rarely if ever downloaded. There are a lot of downloads of the most popular names and these seem to be produced by a small handful of companies whereas the majority of Apps (some 579,001 out of a total of 888,856 Source) are languishing.

    There will probably be some cheap alternatives for those willing to search beyond the first few pages of links.
