    Palm - The 10 Biggest Tech Failures of the Last Decade - TIME

    Ouch, it's up there with Vista, Vonage, Sirius XM, HD DVD...


    Palm's stock trades at $669 in late 2000, now it's around $11.41- and that's even banking off of the Pre.

    The internet.

    Seriously, magazine are for waiting rooms. They are right behind paper newspapers on the slow train to irrelevance.

    Honestly, anyone who doesn't believe Palm had a catastrophic failure after pretty much the Handspring acquisition (maybe give them the benefit of the doubt and say a few years later) is fooling themselves. Hopefully the new engineers won't be as content to sit on their laurels after (if) the Pre is a success, like they did after the Treo 600 was acquired from Handspring and perfected with the 650 (don't get me wrong, I know the 650 wasn't entirely perfect, I mean Palm added the features with the 650 that the 600 should've had in the first place, namely Bluetooth and 320x320.)

    I think in your particular case, the statement would be better written as: "Seriously, does ANYONE under the age of 50 still read?"

    Umm, the article being cited was on Time's web site. Last time I checked, time.com was located on that vast series of tubes known as the internet.

    Not sure if you were dissing Time's content delivery channel (a combination of print and web) or their actual content itself. If it's the latter, remember that the internet itself is of little use if there are no providers dishing up content for us to read!

    True that.

    I firmly believe Palm has a gem on their hand with WebOS.

    I hate to say it but until the Pre launches and they gain success the Time article makes a valid point objectively. The Pre can turn it around, but they aren't there yet. If nothing else this should be good "bulletin board material" at Palm to help motivate the hell out of them to make this work.

    Time Magazine? Is there such a thing?
  16. #16  
    I don't mean to be cynical, but you folks don't think that the timing of this article is a coincidence do you?

    Business objectives are achieved (either directly or as part of a broader strategy) with "news" articles like this...and quid pro quo occurs. What will that be? Who knows, but hey, don't be surprised if you see an exclusive interview with Steve Jobs talking about his health issues in this magazine in a month or two.

    Maintain a reasonable level of suspicion at all times...and remember to question authority. Even paranoids have enemies.

    oh, I thought from 2000 to 2010, because usually they do those things yearly or every 5 years or 10....
