    Kind of annoying. I see it in half the posts on this site.
    It's because those people actually yell the names when they say them out loud.

    Example: "I enjoy using my MAC at home!!"

    They also enjoy hyphenating and incorrectly capitalizing particular letters in other names, such as "I-Pod" and "cheese-Cake".

    I find it sort of amusing, considering Palm's logo is in all-lowercase, so, if anything, they should be writing it "palm."

    Or did you actually mean "plam"?

    It's been mentioned here on precentral, but Engadget mentioned this this morning.

    For me it's an old habit. PALM is the ticker symbol for Palm, inc. on the NASDAQ exchange. When using PALM I'm denoting the publicly traded company and not their devices or operating systems. Some people, sometimes, would get everything confused.

    ...so I'm going to keep on doing it, okay?!

    I can understand the urge for people to scream at PALM!!

    But what I can't understand is "the webOS". Hey, did you see that new "the windows" that they released last week? "The Ubuntu" is so much better than "the OS 10".
