Am I expecting too much? I bought a iPAQ h4350 this week to replace my aging Palm Vx. Except I can't replace it yet. My Palm has a cute free application to do memo encryption, a one-time-password generator, a unit converter with every unit you can think of (including knowing that US and UK gallons are different) and even a ssh client. Finding replacements for these is a nightmare. The iPAQ comes with f-secure file crypto, but try to find it on the f-secure site and you get pointed to some new company they sold it to, that doesn't have any upgrades or useful information. The f-secure filecrypto stuff doesn't integrate very well anyway. I bought a drive crypt program from SecureStar. It crashes. Microsoft Money won't sync my foreign currency accounts. People want me to pay USD30 for a silly unit conversion utility, and don't even get me started on ssh or otp/skey programs.

It's been a frustrating week!
