I rarely go to movies in the movie theater. We rent, using NetFlix. But on the rare occasion we do go to the theater, I am always seeing previews for movies I would like to see. Before I got my PDA, I would try and remember the titles of these movies through the main feature, inevitably forgetting them before I got home.
Now I use my PDA. During the previews I take it out, open up Diddlebug, and start writing titles down. The advantage to Diddlebug over an application that requires Graffiti is that I can write directly on the lit screen and it draws what I am writing, as opposed to writing on the dark Graffiti area. When I get home, I can take these titles and enter them into our NetFlix queue and we’re good to go!
