As part of Google's 10th anniversary celebration, they are making their oldest saved index from 2001 available again. For grins, I did a search for Pocket PC and number 4 on the list was Pocket PC Thoughts, complete with a link to the web archive - on my birthday coincidentally. So even just a few months after the Pocket PC's April 2001 launch, Pocket PC Thoughts was one of the top ranked sites according to Google. As I look through the names of Editors on the site back then, only Jason Dunn remains.
That's right. Look at that big impressive HP Jornada 540 series device in the logo. Go ahead, admit it, you know you want one. Of course, I am sure today's logo will look just as silly in 2015 when we all have our phones down to the size of a pea embedded in our ears. Other things though will likely remain constant: it will still have Solitaire, won't have a close button and Windows Mobile Device Center for Windows 10 will still be trashing my favorites.
