    Quotes from the venerable Jeff Hawkins and Ed Colligan:


    Q: Can you give me a better idea about what this "child" technology is? A: (Hawkins) Not really. I'll give you a couple clues. I always think of mobile computing as personal computing. This long-term vision has led us through everything -- first the organizers and now through the smart phone space. It's like everything a personal computer is. Continue down that path. What are the implications of a world where everyone has a super high-speed Internet connection in their pocket and many gigabytes of storage, super-fast processors, audio, visual and multimedia? What are the consequences of that? How will that change computing when you have all that stuff available to you all the time? I try to think into the future. That's how we come up with new products. So I'm not going to tell you what it is, but it's following the consequences of mobile computing.


    During Palm's Q3FY07 Investor conference call a question came up about future product releases. In response Ed Colligan stated "Clearly we [Palm] have been working on a major new area that has been speculated about in the press and talked about by Jeff Hawkins."


    In March of this year, when the secret third business came up in an interview Hawkins told PalmAddicts:
    "We’re going to be announcing something…but I won’t tell you what it is…we will be launching this year, not in the distant future. I’ll give you a much bigger hint: I’m going to be speaking at Walt Mossberg’s D Conference in May. It’s a high-end industry conference. Anyway, I’m going to be giving a talk there, and that would be something for the Palm fans to keep a close watch on."

    AND THEY ACCUSE JOBS AND APPLE OF HAVING A REALITY DISTORTION FIELD.
    Remember, the "P" in PDA stands for personal.
    If it works for you, it is "P"erfect.

    See, but Apple's RDF points out towards the consumers, not towards the company.
