On The Net - Palmtop User

Palmtop User's roundup of the Internet from a handheld user's perspective...

Palmtop User was launched in August 2002, seeing the merger between Palmtop and PalmUser magazines - two publications that have been serving the handheld computer market since 1994.

In each issue of Palmtop User magazine, On The Net (written by Pete Sipple), takes a look at what's new on the Internet, what's being said in the newsgroups, and points out some top sites that you may have missed.

For reference, here's a summary of the sites we've visited.
