    Bill Gates and Chaney are behind this in some way I know it.

    I can't believe how some people freak out over rumors.

    There have been so many rumor sites that don't know their *** from a hole in the ground (Mac users know what I am talking about...) and for some reason as soon as some writer includes even the most impossible situation in their "rumor" a frenzy is lit and everyone believes it.

    I'm sorry... it's May, right? Didn't Brighthand say the Treo 610 with Bluetooth and hi-res was getting released in March? They weren't even close. Maybe Brighthand likes entertaining gullable readers since they are usually full of hot air.

    Seldomright is still lurking about I see. Always the constant, seeking that perverse enrichment from some one elses bad news. The fact is, however, P1 won't be missing any sleep over this non event.

    > ...not lose sleep...

    Indeed.

    The lack of a Sony competitor will allow PalmOne to announce that they have had a dramatic marketshare increase again (...) thus as far as PRPRPR-$points$ $go$ $it$ $is$ $a$ $win$ $for$ $PalmOne$.

    PalmSource, however, would be a real loser due to this one.

    (hey - it's a software forum, right? PalmOne doesn't do software anymore. Remember what the CFO said when directly asked something like "Is it the policy of PalmOne to develop proprietary software changes in-house" she answered "It has been" rather than a perfectly sufficient "Yes" if it was expected to continue...)

    Quick followup on Sony getting out of the Clie business. Here's Yet Another Brighthand Link confirming the rumor:

    And to the loser JTREOB - nyah nyah nya nyah nyah!

    Giggle.

    Only if one uses two notes for that first "nyah" - I tend to encant it with a long "nyaaaah" as the lead-off.

    =====

    Editted to add this aside (I think the post itself was an aside...):

    I've heard this same taunt by kids in Asia (Taiwan) and Europe (Italy, I think, but could have been Belgium (!)) as well as, of course, thoughout the 50+ years I've been around the US somewhere. That the taunt as nrosser posted it above matches the "Ring Around the Rosie" "nursery rhyme" dating from the days of The Plague is probably NOT coincidental.

    Interesting...

    If the story is accurate, this could be due to manufacturing shifts for PSP.

    Thanks for the update seldomright. I knew about the Sony non event 2 days prior to your post. I see the markets are punishing P1 over it. It's up another 3% today.

    As for me being the loser on this, I don't sense that. Could it be because I purchased 976 shares at 10.25 or $10000 worth of P1 on 1 30 04. It's now at $22.09 per share or worth $21555/ up 115% in 5 months. Any more doom and gloom suggestions Seldomright? Please tell me what else is headed south. Please!
