    If you've ever seen the Palm headquarters complex in Sunnyvale, you will be struck by a statue of an extra slim dude holding a Palm Treo 650. The statue is about 4 stories tall. See below:

    This has been there at least 4 years.

    It's time to replace the Treo with a Pre!

    Interesting! I never knew that. Thanks for the pictures!

    I hope Palm saves its cash until they start turning a profit, though.

    If you really mean it, please hit the "Thanks" button.

    I find I'm in desperate need of affirmation

    Thanks for the "Thanks". If I can't have my Pre now, at least I some Pre Forum "Thanks" to keep me going

    I'm sorry,

    Thanks for the Thanks reminder.

    Are we entering a Thanks loop? A LOT BETTER than the opposite.

    Does anyone else get reminded of the night before Christmas movie when you see the statue?

    Yes, very Tim Burton-esque. That would be Nightmare Before Christmas.

    How does this conform with the "fat middle" target audience?

    Very funny stuff! Glad to see people who still have a sense of humor after all these years of waiting.

    if this Pre doesn't work out, i think they should change the statue to Goatse with a Pre.

    Honest, this actually made me laugh out loud. Thanks for that.

    I should also note that I've almost polished off the last of a bottle of Chimay Grand Reserve, so I'm spreading the thanks liberally. I've resorted to drink to console my thirst for Pre.

    Have you?

    My wife and I are currently on vacation in San Francisco, so we decided to do a "Tech Company Scavenger Hunt" and we went to the HQ of many tech and Internet companies including Palm (the second stop after Google).

    Here is a picture of me and my Pre in front of the Palm statue.

    Living in the Bay Area helps me make such pilgrimage xP next time I go though is to complain about my Pres build quality and then force Palm to let me go through their stock until I find one I want! In my dreams obviously...
