GoBinder discontinued

GoBinder2004-2009Got a sad email from Rob today. Actually, the email was pretty straightforward and stoic, but the news was said (and I could tell he was crying when he pasted the link). Anyway, at the end of the year, Agilix is discontinuing their all-encompassing note and scheduling application for Tablet PCs, GoBinder. Per their website:

Beginning January 1, 2010, Agilix will no longer sell nor support the Agilix GoBinder product line, including GoBinder Lite, GoBinder 2005 and GoBinder 2006. Effective immediately we will no longer provide support for GoBinder Lite and GoBinder 2005. However, Agilix will continue to sell and support GoBinder 2006 until December 31, 2009.

GoBinder started with great promise as the second place winner in Microsoft’s “Think in Ink” contest. But as the Tablet PC form factor never provided that tide that raises all ships, GoBinder was left to flounder and is now being allowed to sink. The great irony, of course, is that its happening as the buzz around tablets is reaching a new peak. Just wish that hype was seeping over to the Tablet PCs and their wonderful software that have been available for years.
