Wow-o-Wow, Jason. That's some news. Like change much?

I've been a member here since I was researching my first gadget, my iPaq Pocket PC. It was funny reading your post, in that just today I picked up both my iPaq and my Telus HTC windows mobile phones and though "this is when computing became personal for me." I also thought back to all the days of figuring stuff out, reading reviews, getting tips, complaining about Canadian carriers, etc.

Even though I worked in Calgary for a while and sometimes attended the same events as you, we've never met in person. But I feel as if you've been part of my community of IT friends for the whole time.

I think your new job sounds incredibly brilliant, especially for someone like you.

My life has taken a reverse direction; I moved from the west coast of the US to Canada. I can't imagine why you'd want to leave here, my home and non-native land .

I can't wait to find out what sort of communities you might be part of because I can't imagine not having your insight as part of my regular reading/foruming.

Best of luck in everything. Exciting times.

Congratulations is most definitely in order, although it's a little bitter-sweet. I've followed Pocket PC Thoughts from day one and watched it grow in to the larger Thoughts Media Network it is today with great joy. Most of the things I learned about WM came straight from here. It made my WM experience much more enjoyable and allowed me to pass on the same to others and even started my own tech blog. With that I hope you enjoy your new position and from what you wrote it's really tailor-made for you. I look forward to hearing about your next project and wish you much success in your new endeavor Jason.

Default Congrats ... go do good stuff ... change the world!

Like many others I have been following you and your interests for years and have come to respect your comments and perspectives greatly. I too wish you the best in your new digs and role in life.

But mostly, make a difference man! Make HTC even better. Make Microsoft become and remain committed to phone offerings that are rock. With your skills and incites, you can do wonders! Go make things better for all of us. Thanks for in advance!

Default Good luck, Jason

I found your site shortly after purchasing my first Pocket PC, a Toshiba e310, roughly 9 years ago. I quickly became hooked to both your site and the wonderful world of Pocket PC's. I frequented your site multiple times a day for several years and continued following it on a regular basis since. I've had many great memories reading articles you've posted, both reviews and opinions on the industry. I hope you the best in all you do the rest of your life.

Default Htc ftw!

Congratulations.

A great move for you and your family.

And Washington is rather socialistic like some parts of Canada.

Jason...

Strange coincidence... for some reason, the whole "selling the web sites" question popped into my head this morning while I was getting ready for work, and led me to wonder how that and other things were going. Shortly thereafter, I went to Zune Thoughts to check out the comments regarding the Zune announcement and lo and behold, there's the answer to my question.

Congratulations on the new job and all of the other related changes! It's great to see that you're remaining in an area of the tech industry where you've been so influential in the past. We'll miss your presence on the web sites, but the new job sounds like a perfect next step for you.

I enjoyed all of the years of working as your review coordinator and having you as a friend. Best of luck to you in your new endeavor. And please give my best to Ashley as well.

Doug

How strange - after a long time lurking in the shadows and after the iphone announcement today, I thought i would check back in (after a year at least!) and as I was redirected from pocketpcthoughts.com thought to myself, what if jason was to sell and do something different - (wondering if he was still involved) - and what do you know.....So i'm with you Doug - CONGRATS Jason, welcome to the new world. Corporate life sure has changed.....Best of luck moving to you and your family!

Cheers,
James Casio E-10

Default Congrats....and thanks

Hi Jason,

I think I joined your forums when I bought my first HP pocket whatever. (I still have my Dell Axim x51). I've gotten a lot of knowledge and help from your forums...and you've caused me to spend tremendous sums on new technology and software that your Thought Media convinced me I could not live without! :-)

Thanks for the years of effort and customer relations that you have expended on our behalf. As a satisfied HTC customer, I wish you the best in your new role and life change. Blessings to you and your family!

I've been remiss in responding here, perhaps because I'm not sure what to say. Some really nice things have been said and I'm grateful for the support from this community. More from me later, but I wanted to force myself to say at least this much.
