I recently purchase my first PDA.  (Granted it's second hand but hey, it does what I need it to do  wink )Anyhow, I was wondering if there was anything Futurama related that I could put on my PDA?  ie episode guide, games etc?  Hell, Futurama's on my cell phone and my desktop so I can't really not have it on my PDA if at all possible.

(Incidently, I think I may make a custom pouch for it.  A pic of Bender saying something to the effect of "Don't touch my stuff while I'm gone.  It's booby-traped".  All those commercial cases for PDA's are A) too expensive and B) rather thick in comparison.  Why buy a slim PDA and then put it in a 1" thick case if you don't need to?) 

Peace out ya'll!

If ignorance if bliss, you'd think more people would be happy when you tell them they're an idiot!

What model PDA is it? Palm or... the other one (windows CE?  Pocket PC?) My brother's (Palm Zire 72) lets him put any image as his default background, and he can watch videos on it (provided he has enough room for them on an expansion card).  Mine (an ancient m505) doesn't let me do any of that, though there may be programs that let you do the background thing.

edit: Quick google search gives this semi-useless little thing and this semi-more-useful thing.

I suppose I should have mentioned what kind of PDA I have aquired!     laff  I've got a Handspring Visor Edge running Palm OS 3.5 on it. 

Unfortunately, the Leela Logo, is a bad link to the file and the episode guide, well I uploaded it to the PDA but can't find that damn thing.  It says that it got it when I hot sync'd it but who knows?

I'm still getting used to this thing! (I've only had it like 2 days and I'm already wondering how to program my own software on it!)    laff I have a little program with Homer Simpson on it and gives a bunch of his sayings.  Even something like that with Bender or Fry or something would be cool!

That Handspring looks fairly-ish sorta similar (era-wise) to my first brick of a PDA (a Palm IIIxe) that served me well until the I leaned up against something jutty-outy and the screen popped... last time I used a soft case...

I thought the Leela thing looked kind of old, but I didn't bother to check. I think the episode guide requires a specific program to view it, which cost money. There is a trial version, I think. Or.... you you "buy" it... if you know what I mean. (I mean give the company or individual that makes it money in exchange for goods and/or services).  I've never looked into programming on the Palm, mainly because I'm not really too interested in programming in general... good luck with making your own stuff.
