I went HP's website to get info on their iPaq. I seen this banner saying Pocket PC 2003 upgrade. Click on it just for the fun of it and clicked on another thing to get prices. My jaw hit the floor. I mean come on! HP H54xx Pocket PC 2003 upgrade, 100 uses for $3,633.00????? That's insane! You can only use it 100 times? I'm confused. What do they mean uses? Like everything you power up? For 3600 bucks I'd rather buy another Pocket PC or two!!

It sounds more like 100 uses means 100 licenses, like for retailers or corps buying in bulk.
