Hypertext on PalmTops

I still believe PalmTops aren't up to 60% of their potential usefulness given the lack of hypertext. If I schedule a telecon with someone, I'd like to go to my calendar, see the call, click the participant and up comes his contact info. I'm looking forward to playing with two new Pilot Apps.

Linker 1.0
A system extension that allows you to create links to jump from one record to another. Can link between all four of the basic built-in apps, and also works with some 3rd party apps.

LinkDragon 1.0
Linkdragon fills a major gap in Pilot apps. It allows associations to be made between pairs of records.

(I'm also still waiting for a Pilot DB application where I can view/edit on the desktop and have it synch atuomatically without having to go through .csv files.)
