    I dont like the fact that they havent updated the comments but in regards to any new subjects I think they are damned either way.

    Some will bash them for putting out non MR related posts assuming they put any out.

    If they dont put any new topics out they will get bashed for not communicating.

    Theyve dug themselves a nice hole.

    Yes the have gotten into a nice deep hole, but I think silence would be the last thing they should do to stop the hole from getting deeper.

    They should just start being honest... If they are not going to fix things the tell us... if they still feel they can get a fix out then tell us... if they may only be able to fix part of the problems the tell us... if the MR is not out because they dropped the ball and did not start developing a fix until a few months back then tell us...

    I am just sick of the runaround. Palm said the blog was:

    So what exactly will Palm blog about and who will be contributing to it? We're going to be flexible and broad on topics because we have a lot of stuff to talk about. The "who" is just about anyone at Palm, from interns to execs. Some days our posts will be educational about our products and other days thought-provoking about our vision and the ever-changing market dynamics. How about even generating a few laughs and who knows maybe some "spirited" conversations - we're game for that. We might even provide a peek behind the Palm curtain. And finally, what self-serving company blog (thanks, Yahoo) would be complete without some insight into the company's employees and culture? Over time, all of the above will be covered
    .

    So much for following there format... so far the only thing we have gotten are apologies, excuses, and a lackluster "new" product...

    agreed. They do need to say SOMETHING.

    As a 650 Verizon user who was hoping to buy a 700P, fixed with the MR, I'm SOL. We may never see the MR for Verizon... and I am wondering if this fiasco might give Palm more to worry about. What if Vzn dropped plans for the 755P and even the rumored 800W/P? They might just not want to be be bothered.

    I hope that doesn't happen, because I am reluctantly considering the 755P if Vzn ever gets it. I prefer standard SD and still hear of problems with the 755p (including still some lags and sounds when the audio switch is off) but I can't trust that a 700P MR will come for "the Network". Maybe I can nurse my 650 along 'til the 900P is out, unless the 800P looks interesting.

    Meanwhile, I need more memory on my 650 so may have to tweak the use of the SD card, and I'm paying inflated Vzn prices for 1x that are the same as EVDO rates... OUCH!

    I really, really wish they'd fess up what in tarnation is going on, but I guess they will be playing it (and playing us) close to their vest.

    I used to go daily to the Palm blog, no more; I am almost tired of posting. I really hate the lag and I am going to the BB 8830, (and I will try the 800w and the 800p or if I do not like BB, I will be back to my lagging Treo 700p post maint release. I used to tell people to buy Treos (but no more), did so until 3 weeks ago after trying the 755p. Now I tell them to go to the BB 8830 or the Iphone! Try that new browser from Apple. Seems smooth. www.apple.com/safari. If I cause a few people to not buy, what is happening to other posters who steer people from Palm? Is business going to boom. If I were a teenager, I would love the Iphone. Sure the non touch screen Palm may sell a few. But if young persons or whoever buy the phone for that $200 figure that is mention. They are going to hate the lag and toss the phone. Palms reputation goes down again. I like; most feel that Palm should have put the dollars that were siphoned off for the Foleo into producing the best smartphone on the market. Internal GPS, dual CDMA/GSM, AD2P with true voice dialing on a Palm Linux Interface that would preform like the 650 with no lags. Other posters can add the features that they want. Palm come back as a winner. We used to love and support you!

    You should also hold Verizon accountable. If Verizon wants a MR, they'll get one from Palm. Palm is a hired company here, so in fairness, they can only say what they are allowed to say by the carriers.
