    Those articles, which usually include a history of Palm, always just make me sad. The midway point, around January 2003, is when I climbed on board and it was a glorious ride. Reading the rehash of all the stupid business decisions and the company leadership roster is nauseating.

    Amen to that - for me my first Palm was a gift (Palm III) in May of 1998 from a good friend who bought his out from his company as they were upgrading him to a Palm V as I lived in Sunnyvale just a mile or so from Palm's headquarters.

    Sad. Very sad. I spoke with a friend of mine today about the "Gram" announcement and he was none too happy when I mentioned that future versions of webOS wouldn't run on existing webOS devices. That, taken with all the meandering we've seen in the Palm world over the years is disheartening.

    Palm/WebOS is the "Two And A Half Men" of mobile operating systems. :D

    As a huge original Palm fan (who still has a routinely charged Tungsten|C) I gave up long before even WebOS. Everything that Palm once was is now Android at least x10. Six months from now no one will still know anything about GRAM.

    Edit: Oops. Didn't realize how old this thread was. It actually has almost been six months! ;)

    No oops. :) The post prior to yours was on December 7. This thread will be nostalgic for most of us for some time. Post thoughts as you wish.
