    Default just bitchin...

    Sunday, I went to work as the Olympus promoter...
    as I walked in, my colleagues asked me to handle this Uncle going to church.
    He's here to buy a usb charger cable for his Zire 71.
    He chose the el cheapo no-brand one for m505 (he said it works, ok lor), and insisted we show him how it can work with no Hotsync button. (we also had a Targus full button + LED version, but then he's like I said el cheapo *******. Both were at clearance SAME price but he didn't read the tags LOL)
    Told him without the button Palm got hotsync software what (that says "HOTSYNC" with a HOTSYNC icon under Systems).
    Insisted dun have.
    Asked him to take out the Zire, toggled to System, point out to Hotsync and showed him. I kept quiet liao, no words no expression (maybe some but minimal).
    During this he sneered, "You got use palm before?"
    Saw the icon still insisted dun have. So I patiently clicked the icon with my fingernail and let the Hotsync app run. "This is not..." I *clicked* the nice fat red/blue square, passed him the Zire with the "connecting to cradle" screen. I went into the counter keep my bag etc.
    Uncle Fish left the store, and I put back the cable.

    Note: I was wearing a HP5450 T-shirt, so I must only be a pocketpc idiot savant.
