    I just read this on the verge and was just about to post this lol. I still think someone (Derek) should do a Q & A with him. Find out more about what happened at hp and palm and what he thinks about all of it and webOS today. And what phone he uses today.

    Dude... he didn't ruin Palm. Check your history.... Ruby was brought in and moved webOS forward. Leo ruined Palm. Period.

    Though, if we're going to be perfectly honest here, Palm was on the brink of ruin before HP stepped in to save the day.

    Palm effectively had a snowball's chance in Hell after the Treo era. Ruby was in charge of a sinking ship that was then shot with half a dozen torpedoes.

    As an article on ZDnet said "he's experienced what definitively works (Apple); what might have worked (Palm); and what really didn't work at all (HP)."

    His role in Qualcomm might be related with his phenomenal presentation of Megahertz Myth. Although it's been years ago, but who knows someone might want to have the same performance boost in smartphone.

    True, Palm ran out of runway when it came to finances. But HP came in with deep pockets and a promise. They ousted Hurd (his own fault) who loved webOS, and put in Apotheker who hated anything not having to do with Enterprise. It was Leo who killed off everything in a single move.
