In today’s interview, I get the chance to talk with Brian Hall, developer of “Missing Sync” — a PalmOS desktop syncing software that worked with Sony Clies and other devices. We get the chance to talk about his journey into PalmOS development (starting with the Apple Newton), the end days of PalmOS (including the final operating system projects from Palm), and his current projects emulating retro game consoles and computers.

It was a most excellent (and nerdy) time.
