    I'd love to know what Jeff Hawkins, founder of Palm, thinks of the Palm Pre. He left the company for good after the fatal Foleo flop and I bet he's pretty pissed he left. Haha

    What do you think?

    Wasn't he just a cofounder along with Donna Dubinsky?

    Incidentally, according to Wikipedia they have founded a new company. Numenta - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    Hawkins was actually right that the Foleo would catch on. Unfortunately, we call them netbooks, and I bet the Foleo if tweaked, could catch on now. The instant on functionality would be nice. Unfortunately, we will watch Apple step into this space in the next 6 months or so.

    The Foleo and current netbooks are two very different animals. The popularity of one is pretty much because of capabilities the Foleo didn't have.

    ROFL Too Funny!

    I know that Hawkins has been working on his AI stuff for quite some time. When he returned to Palm he published a book about his theory of how the brain works.

    I'd bet he'd want to make slight tweaks to make certain things need a few less clicks, but who knows, after Palm bought Handspring again, he became more of a part-time player, spending more time at Numenta, and then especially after the Foleo, even more so.
