Hello everyone! Iím James Hromadka, the Senior Editor at VisorCentral.com, which, in my opinion, is the best website for information on the Handspring Visor and its products.
Iím glad to be here today to have a chance to speak with you, since I know that most of you are just as interested in the new developments in handheld technology as I am. Iíd like to tell you a little bit about our website and my personal involvement in it, and of course tell you about some of the great products that have been released for the Visor.
VisorCentral was created for Peracto, Inc. by Marcus Adolfsson out of Gainesville, Florida. He created the initial site on September 8, 1999; right after ZDNet broke news of the Visorís announcement that would officially be a few days later on the 14th. As I was interested in VisorCentral, I emailed Marcus whatever news items I had found on the web. The site really took off when its Discussion Area (bulletin board) began. There was a lot of buzz about Handspring, and major news sources such as CNN picked up the Visor announcement and linked to VisorCentral, giving us thousands of visitors a day right from the beginning.
At the beginning, the elation over the Visor turned into scorn as many
of our readers had problems getting their Visors. At one time one
of our readers had running statistics on the average length of time that
it took to order and receive a Visor. That time length went from
over 40 days during December to less than a week earlier this year.
Now itís hard to imagine any difficulty getting a Visor, but they were
going for $300-400 on eBay at one point!
