The point is, back in the days of PalmOS, you didn't even have to set up
entire server infrastructures, even if it were on your *own* machine.
PalmSync worked directly from application to device; no intermediaries,
even if it's local. So just *how* have we advanced if, in order to
semi-replace the functionality we had with PalmOS, we have to set up
entire Apache servers, probably some heavy layers of PHP services, and
tons of other cr(uft), and *still* find yourself nowhere near the
functionality you had back then?
