Happy Valentine’s Day

Posted by Michael Brown on February 14, 2005

Greetings, and Happy Valentine’s Day. Today’s blog will be a shorter one today, as I’m taking part of today off to fix a surprise dinner for my wife. Romance is good for a healthy relationship, so make sure you do something special for that special someone. To be quite honest, it’s something a relationship needs throughout the year, but you really need to at this time of year.

Wait a minute… Isn’t this supposed to be a technology blog? It is and yes, there are ways you can use a Palm Powered handheld or smartphone to help you in the romance department. Here’s a few tips on how your PDA can help you and your relationship.

  1. Create an appointment in your calendar to do something special for your special someone. You can set a reminder alarm that will sound hours (or even days) before your event to give you time to get organized.
  2. Keep the names and numbers of flower shops, fine restaurants, and babysitters in your address book. If you have a smartphone like the Treo, then it’s that much easier to make your reservation – just tap to dial!
  3. If you’re surfing the web, reading something, or talking with someone and you run across something good (poem, quotes, ideas and recipes) then write or copy it into your memo pad so it will be with you when you need it. You’ll always be able to find it in a split-second using your Palm’s find feature.
  4. Create a task or tasks in your to-do list to get flowers, chocolates, or something that your significant other loves. Set the due date sufficiently far enough ahead that you have time to do it.
  5. If you haven’t done any of the aforementioned things, then you probably want to copy these tips into the note of a new appointment in your Palm’s calendar. Date it for February 7th, and have it repeat every year with an alarm to remind you. At least you’ll have some of the coolest games on your Palm to amuse you while you’re in the doghouse!

My best wishes to you and yours for a wonderfully romantic evening. See you next week!
