Proving that it can boost productivity as well
as destroying it, the homebrew scene has churned out a DS organizer suite for us to download and arrange our overly
complicated work schedules with. Cleverly entitled DSOrganize
, the software boasts a calendar, an address book
with vCard support, a day planner, multiple languages, a file browser and rudimentary handwriting recognition. The
latter part is excellent news, what with my handwriting being so very rudimentary indeed.
with this homebrew creation, you may recall a
rumor about Nintendo filing a patent
for something called V-Pocket
, supposedly stemming from them
licensing the Palm
operating system for the DS. However, unless we missed something, it doesn't look like
anything ever came of that. Given its stylus-based interface and Wi-Fi capabilities, the DS seems like it could be an
ideal (and cheap) alternative to other handheld organizers, with an added benefit of playing some stellar games. With
web browsing taken care of, would you be interested in an official organizer package for the DS?
