Testimonials.
Herbert, Germany:
"…I left my Milestone 312 in the train. The following days until I received my Milestone back were like hell. Amazing, how quickly I got used to that device."

Anna, Belgium:
"Calendar! This feature rocks."

Lynn, USA:
"…What I really appreciate about my Milestone 312 Ace is its open file system. I can manage my folders the way I think it makes sense and the internal memory of 12 GB is now more than big enough. In addition, I love the several wake up melodies. The rooster reminds me of my childhood in Kansas."

My day with Milestone 312 Ace
I wake up with music of my favorite radio station played by Milestone312 Ace. I need some more minutes so I turn the device upside down to put it back to snooze mode. 5 minutes later Milestone starts the next wake up attempt. With the push of a button I deactivate the alarm. There we go, I'll start the day with a cup of coffee and return to bed to play Tic-Tac-Toe on my Milestone. That keeps me mentally fit.
While getting dressed I am not sure if the selected jacket and pants match together. I check if the colors are identical with the color reader Fame for Milestone. Half past seven says Milestone. Time for breakfast. With Milestone's stop watch I manage the perfect breakfast eggs.
On my way to work I listen to the daily newspaper, which I've dowloaded back home. Thanks to its well structured EPUB format I do not have to waste time with articles I'm not interested in. Finally, I got a good idea for my sister's birthday present. A quick voice record to make sure I remember it later. In the office I start managing my appointments - an easy task with Milestones's calendar application.
In the evening I have guests, so I collect all the things I need to cook dinner. Cans, jars, bags - I recognize the ingredients with Woodscan, the barcode reader for Milestone 312 Ace. With its database of 60 million products I cannot only identify the products for today's dinner but almost every article I've ever bought. While cooking I use NineRoast, the meat thermometer for Milestone, to make sure tonight's roast will be a success. It automatically informs me when the core reaches the preset cooking temperature.
While dinner Milestone plays music quietly in the background, directly from my favorite web radio station: Radio Hawaii. After all guests have left I play "catch the thief from Hamburg" on Milestone 312 Ace. Maybe I'll catch him today. Unfortunately, I fall asleep before the game ends and the lucky thief escapes again. Good that the device powers off after 10 minutes of inactivity by himself. And tomorrow morning Milestone will wake my up on time.
