    Former Palm CIO Devoted To iPhone - Forbes.com

    I wonder when she left Palm. Probably prior to the new Ruby regime took over. Oh well....

    Tech and business reporters have nothing better to do but dig dirt.
    First she is a no name person that they have to say former CIO of PALM rather than her name.
    Second it is expected that folks jump the ship after a merger.
    Third the issue is not with folks jumping the ship, but being able to execute the plan PALM had. People come and go.

    Makes me wonder how much of a transformation effort Ruby did when he brought on all these great minds. Only he could have brought some marketing wizard then PALM would have stayed independent.

    We're losing all of our "pillars".
    I love WebOS, I just hope these changes are met with equally if not better replacements or WP7 is looking a lot like my next platform.

    So what was the point of the news that Forbes reported on? Still trying to figure it out.

    How long ago she left Palm? When she says "she never used Palm Pre" sounds Pre came after she left Palm i could be wrong.

    Just "business as usual" in the high tech world, I mean didn't a lot of people come over from Apple?

    Have you tried the Palm Pre, though?

    I have not tried Palm Pre. I moved on, so now I'm an iPhone devotee.


    This sounds real current, no?

    That exactly what it sounds like to me also, I'm guessing it's been at least a couple years since she left and usually when an employee leaves a company their loyalty goes with it. This appears to be nothing more significant than what I would consider to be Tech Paparazzi just digging up crap trying to make it important. IMO.

    She joined NetApp in 2005 from Palm Inc

    a no name person to the consumer... just like netapp is a no name company to the consumer.

    but if you do know who netapp is and what they do and you see how netapp has exploded with her as CIO and compare how palm has fared in that time...

    well, i guess you wouldnt understand.

    Hey!! You see who posted this?! A MODERATOR that's who.
    You see the first reply??? A MODERATOR that's who.

    If they feel the post is fine then THE POST IS FINE.

    I think complaining about a Moderator's post is given an infraction point right?
    I know I got a point recently for something like that

    Really Yup I wouldn't understand. She is not even in the executive board of NetApp. Why would anyone care about some ex CIO's comments whose job is to run the systems than designing a phone.

    I'm with darkzone. That 'article' or whatever it is, is just the most useless piece of stuff posted on digital print. Don't they have editors over there?

    Now, if they asked Jeff Hawkins what he uses these days I'd be interested.

    Personally, I believe one of the main reasons that webOS is missing so much functionality is that Palm employees are not forced to use it. (Actuality, they should have been forced to use PalmOS devices while creating webOS, too.) I would expect the third or fourth call after hours to an admin to log in and restart something would provide sufficient motivation to provide VPN, remote access VNC/RDP, SSH, FTP, Telnet, etc. Sadly, they probably use their iPhone or Terminal on webOS -- neither of which is an acceptable answer for Palm customers.

    How do Palm employees schedule meetings with their webOS devices???

    That is a terrific point.

    I still don't understand how, as advanced as PalmOS and the app ecosystem was, they launched a phone that didn't even come close to meeting the productivity basics that the current users expected.

    I said this elsewhere but I will say it again: Palm devotees became that way because the PDA, and then the phone, were indispensable for productivity. Calendaring, project management, task/note taking. No one did it better.

    Then they launched this phone that was all about entertainment. Games. Flash (or promises of).

    WTH? A completely different market?

    They went after Apple, and should have been going after RIM.
