I have a personal emergency.

My LifeDrive screen has gone all streaky and will show none of my data.

On the XP box with Palm Desktop, the last HotSync was February 2014.

That’s because PalmOneSyncEng.dll mysteriously disappeared and syncs would no longer work.

I’m now on a Win 7 notebook and must make Palm Desktop sync to try to retrieve my stranded data.

If I can get it into Palm Desktop, I can start the process of rescuing the data for another device.

Suggestions welcomed!

Update Tuesday October 20 2015: All LifeDrive data successfully synced to Windows 7 notebook. And I have suggestions for migrating it to Android — when I can damn well finally buy something.

I Finally Got To Test The LG G Stylo

Unfortunately, it was the Boost Mobile version, which has just 1GB of RAM and 8GBs of storage.

That shitty 1GB of RAM sure does!

If you had a phone that couldn’t upload a screensnap to Twitter due to out-of-memory issues, wouldn’t that phone be just about absolutely fucking useless?

Welcome to the Boost Mobile version of the LG G Stylo!

It actually did that to me.

And I made sure to clear out all RAM after the first time that message appeared.

But it still couldn’t send the image due to insufficient RAM!

That’s why this post will lack any images as proof.

No MiPad 2: Xiaomi Announces Another Damn TV

I was forced to start the day late due to IRL shit. So glad now. My disappointment is tempered.

See the coverage elsewhere:

GizChina: 60″ Xiaomi Mi TV 3 launched, does 4K for $780

GizmoChina: The Super Thin Xiaomi Mi TV 3 Is official with a stunning 60-inch 4K Panel from LG

Neowin: Xiaomi launches Android-powered Mi TV 3 with 60-inch 4K display for less than $800

Xiaomi also entered the alternate transportation business: Ninebot mini is Xiaomi’s first self-balancing scooter for $315

This company is like the boy who cried wolf. Announce the damn tablet or …

My thinking is that they have to do it soon. Do they want to miss all those 11/11 sales?
