    During the "good" years of Palm OS, licensing 'only' led to Palm being shown up by Sony on every single device.

    During the bad years, licensing led to the biggest mistake in the company's history, spinning off the software end into a separate company so that licensees (who shortly after dropped Palm OS anyway) wouldn't have a disadvantage. This led to Palm having no control over the OS in their devices, and more importantly, huge stumbles such as Cobalt.
    I had never thought of the first point (the second, I had), but you're spot on.
    I went from a Palm III, to a III Plus, and my next three devices were non-Palm branded (TRG/Handera and Sony). As a matter of fact, I was only lured back to Palm because a Treo 270 was given to me (and I did like the phone addition).

    HERE is a link to sign up for notification of availability of Flash 10.1 Beta for Pre. I only went through the first couple of pages of this thread. So excuse me if this link has been offered earlier.

    Come on, man, those weren't even stretches. Let's see if you get your Cappuccino maker prediction right... Personally, I doubt it, but we'll see.

    Mostly unrelated to the thread, but I just noticed the system me.
    For the record, the compound word that combines sand and bag, or in this case, sand bagging, isn't an inappropriate word.

    From Dictonary.com:

    To downplay or misrepresent one's ability in order to deceive someone, especially in gambling.
    sand'bag'ger n.

    I do realize that the last letter of sand, and the first three letters of bagging makes for a common inappropriate word, but it never occurred to me until I saw the post after the fact.

    Oh, and .... sheesh!!!

    OK, I went back and looked... What "Cappuccino maker prediction"? I couldn't find it. I don't even drink coffee... (even though my wife orders so many "decaf mocha misto grande with two squirts and whipped cream" at so many area Starbucks that I've proposed they just rename it to "The Gini" and save us all some time and trouble) (I still don't even know "two scoops of what, but it always seems to work when I order it).

    You didn't _actually_ go back and look, did you?

    And I think you're mixing your measurements. "Two scoops" is the number of raisins in a box of Raisin Bran. You meant you don't know what "two squirts" are of, which I don't know either. Seems like you'd need to specify _something_, or who knows what you'll end up with.

    By the way, is it 11:00am tomorrow morning yet?

    I can't believe Palm still hasn't come up with a useful facebook app. Which market are they aiming for? Not gamers, not social networkers, certainly not business people...it seems as though everything is just a little too half-*** with this company, but we will see tomorrow if they blow the doors off the competition. Let's cross our fingers.

    it's two scoops of "whatever it is don't make loud sounds or annoy her" till she's had it. I know it well.

    Love it. I want one. When will it be available and is it exclusive to Sprint for 6 months?

    But the BB at the end of the name my confuse some into thinking that BB stand for Blackberry.
    Are you trying to hurt me?

    two "squirts" or two "scoops"?

    The squirts usually don't annoy 'em ......

    Here is my prediction posted in another thread

    There will be nothing earth shattering there. It will just be the Verizon / ATT announcement. Some more International carriers will be announced. WebOS 1.5 or 2.0 will be previewed with native SDK, Flash, Open GL, video recording and mostly stuff we know about.

    Palm can not announce any new hardware because of their current carrier situation. You can rest assured that there will be a new device in June even though they can't announce it yet for fear of killing their sales on Verizon and ATT of the Pre and Pixi.

    No matter what they announce, one thing you can take to the bank is that this board will be filled with threads of people complaining and moaning. This just seems to be the type of user that the new Palm attracts. Many people around here would complain if they were hung with new rope.
    Pilot 1000 -> Pilot 5000 ->Palm Pilot Professional -> HP 620LX -> TRG Pro -> Palm V -> Palm Vx -> Palm M505 -> Palm i705 -> Palm Tungsten|T -> Samsung i500 -> Treo 600->Treo 650 -> Treo 600-> Treo 700p ->Centro ->Treo 800w + Redfly C8n -> Palm Pre -> HP Touchpad
    R.I.P Palm 1996-2011
