Ars Technica reviews LifeDrive

Better late than never, thought Ars Technica, and put theirs hands on Palm's LifeDrive Mobile Manager. Their conclusion:

Really, if you're thinking about getting a LifeDrive, you have to ask yourself how much it would benefit you. If you can afford a supplemental computer like this, would having everything in one place make a difference for you? There are also more practical considerations. It's not something you can stick in your pocket, so how will you carry it around with you? If you're going to carry around a backpack or a briefcase to keep it in, why not just carry around a laptop? At its price, it's getting dangerously close to laptop territory anyway. It's a good piece of hardware, but for me, I can think of more effective ways to spend $500.

Pros: Excellent syncing software, everything works like you expect it to, solidly constructed
Cons: Included software should be full-featured, pushes limits of Palm OS, pricey
