Printing: Users can print eBook pages as needed. This is an especially useful feature for business people. To print, click on the menu button in the Acrobat eBook Reader and select the print option.

Lending/Giving We currently have two ways to lend or give a book: you can beam it to a computer if both have infrared ports, or you can send it to a computer on your network. To lend a book to someone else, go to the Library, click a book. Click the Menu button and then click Lend/Give to display the Lend/Give dialog box. Choose a loan period or click Give. To send the book over an infrared connection, click Beam. To send the book to a computer on the network, enter the computer name in the Send To box and click Send. You can either lend the book or give it away. Like a paper book, there is only ever one working copy. Once the lending period expires, you get your rights back and you can re-read the book or lend it again. Of course, if you give it away, it's gone for good (unless the recipient gives it back).

Editorial Reviews

The Barnes & Noble Review
Palm, Handspring, Qualcomm pdQ smartphone, and beyond: How To Do Everything With Your Palm Handheld delivers 600 pages of soup-to-nuts coverage — and it's a blast to read.

If you're just getting started with your Palm handheld, they'll walk you through setup, getting your PC or Mac ready, and getting information in and out, including beaming appointments, contacts, memos, tasks, and whole applications. There are detailed chapters on each Palm mini-app: date book, address book, to do list, memo pad, expense, and so forth.

There's a full chapter on taking your Palm on the road. (It'll set off the metal detector at the airport, and don't forget to turn off appointment alarms that might turn it on at the start or end of your flight, when all electronic devices are supposed to be turned off.) You'll find detailed coverage of the Palm VII and its cool wireless features, a full chapter on the cool new Handspring Visor, and a full section on communications: wireless and landline modems, email, instant messaging, web browsing, faxing, and more.

From Graffiti tips to money management, third-party software to troubleshooting, this book will make using your Palm an even more rewarding experience than it already is.
