    Gave me a chuckle thinking of all the trash talk I hear when playing Gears Of War 2 on my XBOX360. Senseless. I simply say "thanks" or some other appropriate appreciative response to their trash talk and give them no ammunition.

    BINGO! Give that man a cigar! Remember the Treo 600 hype? Palm/Handspring really learned how to get free publicity on that one and IMO they're playing the same card here.

    I will keep in touch with him even more over the next couple of weeks and forward any new info.

Those who've simply "heard" the 2/15 date have usually gone out of their way to detail how they posed their questions, so that others could judge the weight of their claim. No one who's cited 2/15 date has insisted on it with lines like "trust me, I know."

    So if 2/15 comes and goes, and there's no Pre, he hasn't been vindicated anymore than a prediction based on a coin flip.
    I am not blending the terms accuracy and credibilty together at all. What I said is that people can and should judge for themselves the credibility of a poster. It doesn't matter whether he "claims" authority (he didn't, just definitive info) or not. I would rather people be able to post that they know and can't say why and let us draw our own conclusions instead of having people hammer some poor guy because he decided to contribute.

    People are lame... this is silly season and you're jumping down the throats of people over a phone. Talking trash on the internet doesn't give your life validity... it might be fun, but certainly no validity.
    I'm not trash talking. Just asking people to let new people contribute and if you don't like the contribution, skip it.

    Now I do have a problem with folks trolling... Mods will ban those though.

    Which is precisely what people are doing, and precisely what you're taking issue with. You're basically saying that it's fine for people to judge the credibility of the poster as long as they don't express that judgment to others, or as long as you get to decide whose judgements get expressed. Please, get over yourself.
    It doesn't matter whether he "claims" authority (he didn't, just definitive info) or not.
    If you think a phrase like "trust me, I know" isn't claiming authority, your inference skills are questionable, to say the least.
    I would rather people be able to post that they know and can't say why and let us draw our own conclusions instead of having people hammer some poor guy because he decided to contribute.
    Again, he cited something as definitive knowledge without providing context, so the skepticism he elicited was warranted. Even when someone can't say why they know a fact they're asserting, they can always say why they can't say why (e.g. "I'm under NDA,"). There are plenty of ways to leave out traceable details while providing a general context for brash assertions.

    Perhaps you find the sarcasm of some replies distasteful, which is understandable, just as some people find your histrionic characterization of "hammering" the self-appointed authority -- or "the poor guy" -- in question laughable.

    I'll let the irony of that statement speak for itself, without further comment.

    or Roswell, what about that?

    Or Jimmy Hoffa, where can he be found? or is he hiding out in Palm's HQ and he's your deepthroat.
    You know, I'm sorry, but here we have someone with 2 posts, and someone with only 8 posts starting their association with Treocentral by insulting another poster. What's with that? Really guys, try and be a little nicer, at least until you here awhile and know who you're dissing.

He mentioned the sensitivity of the touch screen as one of the possible issues.
    I have to say, the one problem I found when playing with the Pro at Best Buy was the touch screen did not react to the stylus. I told the guy there and he said he had the same problem and had to use his fingers. It worked with my finger, but couldn't get it to work with the stylus. How do it know? (an old joke line)

    All of this speculation reminds me of when I met Bill Murray in 1982.
    I asked him when his next movie was coming out.
    He replied as only Bill Murray could, "When it's finished."
    Guess the Pre will be out then.
    For the record, since my Sprint 2 year $150 discount kicks in March 11, I'm hoping ... March 11.
    Nah, I want to see it Feb 15 just like all of you.

    Just so you know, I invented the question mark, and there will not be one on the Pre, as they didn't pay me royalties for it.

    I can guarantee it wont be released on Feb 21. After that day I will be seen as more credible

    Please, enough with the personal back and forth here, I don't particularly like closing threads.

    Reading this whole thread , and ignoring some of the silly back and firht, the infomration from tprevett was most interesting.

    we've read reports of Plam training on the phone, but tprevett contact, who works in a large store which I;m guessing does phone support, has had no training. A direct condtradiction of past reports.


    BTW - i have 700 posts as i write this, and i'm a terrbile, abosolutly usless source :-)
    da Gimp

    Please note: My spelling sucks and I'm to lazy to check it.

    Thanks for the welcome. I've been lurking for a while but with the daily stream of information that is now coming out I felt it was time to dive in. Hopefully I can make a positive contribution here.

    The sound of prepubescent whining is the highlight of any Live kill/victory.

    Now we are talking. My last job was working for Glenmorangie but back in my Uisge Beatha days it was usually Bunnahabhain all the way. My local had to put in a special 'Teso order' each month. I miss those days but I am now all over Scotland each week at various different clients so I had to cut back.

    EDIT: Talk about perpetuating a stereotype!

    EDIT2: So the 15th Feb...
    From those mythical lands beyond the great USA...

    It is a convergence device not mankind's disc/filmography.
