Topic: Tom's Invaluable Bean Ratings on a Pocket PC... and I need permission from Tom: (3 msgs / 89 lines)
1) From: Ed Needham
This sounds like it could be a good marketing tool for
Tom and Sweetmaria's.  Maybe he could offer it as a
download from his web site and cut you a deal for a few
pounds of free green for your effort.

One of the better examples of what a Pocket PC is:http://www.brighthand.com/biz/casestudies/port_part1_page1.htmlThis is a case study of creating a specialized "meter reader" system for the
marina at the Port of Seattle using a Compaq iPAQ Pocket PC.
The article is fairly detailed and will mostly interest my fellow geeks,
however Robert Folie has also included a lot of images as well. Just
skimming and looking at the images gives a good idea of what is going on.
Maybe someone will dream up an interface to automatically control and log
roasting parameters with a Pocket PC connected to a HWP ;-)

The main difference is that the Pocket PC was designed by starting with a 
desktop PC and MS Windows and shrinking it down to fit in your pocket. 
Palm OS devices, such as the Visor, were created by starting with a block 
of wood and developing a new paradigm for handheld computing. (I'm not 
joking about the block of wood.)

I was over at Lowes the other day and noticed that they have a Palm OS 
device controlling their security system. Somebody out there with too 
much time on their hands should get to work on Tom's handheld/roaster 
idea immediately.
Check out these URLs and get some ideas (not competitors of SMs, yet):
