    I say this, because I've now received the second tweet from @palm_inc that can _only_ be made JUST before the announcement. The tweet, for those who haven't seen it, is:

    @palm_inc: Best song about waiting (IMHO) since Carly Simon's "Anticipation": Molls + PalmPre = 4 EVA

    Now, Palm _knows_ how their most rabid fan base is desperate for news about the Pre's release, and indeed for the release itself. I'm guessing that this fan base makes up some significant percentage of followers of @palm_inc. Therefore, these references by Palm to waiting for the Pre are increasingly in bad taste.

    Thus, the release date must be imminent, because Palm can't be so stupid as to make such bad jokes about a topic that's so near and dear to their most important fans, unless they have something to back it up with VERY soon.

    Can they?

    This is a very good point. I just saw their tweet a few minutes ago before I read your post...good things being announced in the next few days possibly? I honestly won't get my hopes up.

    Bad taste doesn't necessarily equate to criminal responsibility.

    twitter can be used as a tool of misinformation, misdirection, and obfuscation.

    That's totally inappropriate. It's lewd, vesivius, salacious, outrageous!

    Yeah that's going to be a problem. It's gonna be a problem for them. This a clear violation of your rights as a consumer. It's an infringement on your constitutional rights. It's outrageous, egregious, preposterous!

    Actually, that would go along nicely with the full-page ad featuring the Tweety Bird.

    As near as I can tell, it looks like we are it on that reference. Sadly.
