Set the Way Back Machine For Way Back

OK this is kind of awesome in a nostalgic sort of way. Access who purchased PalmSource which was the spun off software side of Palm (seriously if you ever want to read a book on the most convoluted company history ever Piloting Palm is a good read) has release an Android input system that uses the old Graffiti system from original Palm PDAs.

I installed it and it’s kind of fun although still slower than the Evo 4G’s built in keyboard. Surprisingly I still remember most of the Graffiti strokes. Now that I think about it that shouldn’t be very surprising since I used it a lot throughout college (I wrote entire speeches for class on my PDAs because I didn’t often lug around a laptop).
