I'm thinking about selling it. I just don't have time to do anything with it. I hardly use my laptop, nevermind my Z.

I'm trying to decide if I should sell it fully loaded or what. The thing has 5 or 6 hours of use at best.

-Overlay Brilliant screen protector installed
-Expensive Japanese case (Extreme Limit)
-Wireless card
-Stylus (nice one - Palm one I think - fits perfect)
-1gb SD
-Zaurus remote/headphone

I could easily make the 1gb SD optional. Everything else is really tied to the Z, though. I've only been using it for MP3s - why not just get an IPOD, right? I dunno.

If anyone wants to make an offer, or just suggest what it's all worth, please do.

I just got a transfer in my company. I'm driving a vehicle that does not have a radio. We are allowed to bring out own boombox into the vehicle and use it during the day - we have to secure it via straps. Okay, so I got one. Reception is pretty good, but I get somewhat bored with regular AM/FM radio - though I do listen to a lot of talk shows. Regardless, I bought an industrial type of radio (heavy duty) that has an aux. input. The radio has a little cd case on the side that would be perfect for putting my Z in. There is a small hole in the case where I could run a mini-jack to mini-jack cable. I could even wrap the Z in some sort of protective wrap (the vehicle can ride fairly rough on some of the roads) and still put it in the CD case.

Sounds good, right? I can use my Z and have access to my 1gb SD card. My concern is the extreme heat in the summertime. The front of the vehicle can get upwards of 90-100 degrees, I'm sure. There are sliding doors on each side, both of which are open, so there is good ventilation throughout the day. What I'm saying is, it wouldn't be like it's just left in the back of a parked car to cook. I'm just concerned about the screen and what not. Obviously the screen would be off, but would the heat potentially damage anything in the Z?

Let me know what you guys think. I don't use my Z enough and think would be a nice opportunity to get some use out of it.

Can it be done? Playing music stops after 30 minutes.

What do you think? Have the C860 and would like to take it on jogs to listen to music. Besides the obvious - falling and crushing it, or it falling out of a belt strap - do you think the actual act of jogging and the unit being bounced around could potentially damage it?

I installed the Opie PIM apps directly from the Cacko feed. This problem may be the same for all apps, but I've only confirmed with addressbook. After install, there is a Contacts app in the Applications tab. Starting that starts the Cacko-included address book instead. It seems they both use an executable with the same name: addressbook

I can start opie app from command prompt, but cannot get it to work from a tab. I tried renaming the opie addressbook exec file to oaddressbook - that allows me to launcg from tab, but it comes up in portrait mode and I cannot change it.
