i have a dell axim, too. i'm a little bad though because i downloaded trial versions of a buncha stuff. then i got a keygenerator to fully unlock them. so basically it was free. hehe!
i'm rather naughty, eh? it's a bit annyoing that these programs are more expensive than the books, which i also have. i'm not made of money!
i take my pda with me to clinical so i don't have to take all the books. plus mp3s, movies, planner, calander, you name it has it. it's great. i looooooove mine.
yes, it is naughty. however, unlike you, i don't think it's "cute". it is actually highly illegal, and quite possible that allnurses could be subpoena'd to find out who you are. if you think you are safe because you log in with a fake identity, let me assure you that you are not; in order to talk to a website your computer has to have an ip address; your ip address is sent to every website you visit (and so it everyone else's); your ip address can be tracked to your isp (because they are the ones who provide it) and your isp has records which can track it back to you.
it is not a joke. programmers and companies worked to create products that they can sell. if everyone steals them, then the incentive to create new products stops. look at what the downloading of "free" mp3's have done to the music industry; they have basically been decimated. think of it as a patient advocacy issue. patients are benefited by health professionals who have easy access to reliable information. don't make it unprofitable for the providers to not do so.
i hope you will re-think what you have done. be careful, too, because some of the "warez" sites where you can get key generators are run by very clever people, people who can use your visit to their website to install software on to your computer that compromises your privacy.
unfortunately, internet abuse of all types threatens the internet. internet commerce has actually dropped because people are fearful of spyware, viruses, hackers (the correct term is actually "crackers") and loss of privacy, including identity theft.
as they used to say in the 60s: are you a part of the problem or a part of the solution?
