back to article Palm Prē design lead ejects from HP

Demi-disgraced HP chief exec Mark Hurd may have been the most-recent high-level exec to exit that company's Palo Alto headquarters, but he's not alone in his good-bye drive down US Highway 101.

    Increasingly reminding me of...

    Iron Man 2:

    THE iPhone is now being surrounded by myriads of mindless drones. The market desperately needed a sidekick to the iPhone, but with this exit, I don't believe HP will be delivering that sidekick.

    Sniff... PalmOS was good.

    I still have, and regularly use, a five or six year old Tungsten T5. It still manages a full day of Bluetooth geocaching on its original battery. Tethers to my Nokia 6310i for on the move intarwebs too! And, it has NEVER crashed while running a non-hacked app!

    Paris, cause I give a f**k!
