Oh your wit is so sharp, I'm going to cry. (maybe I'll save it for later when I have nothing better to do.)

I use the product, and as long as they continue to make and improve the product I will continue to use it. When the PRODUCT dies, then I'll use something else... it's not that hard for most people to understand. Just checked my Pre and it's still working... I'll check it again in July after the sale closes. If it stops working on that day, I'll post and bow to you incredible foresight. (But I don't see that happening)
Nobody has a problem with pointing out Palms failures. if you read my post in the past I've called them out as well. However THIS post was about comments that a developer made in Wired magazine and your first post was questioning the motives of a poster (Noco37) in the forum. Doing that was uncalled for, and basically makes you look like a punk. I'll repeat it here for everyone to see.

By the way, the developer mentioned has stated that the was grossly misquoted and misrepresented in the article. So the whole premise of your insult to the OP was based on a mistake. (Would this qualify your comments as baseless speculation on your part?) Unless you are going to contend that the developer is now lying merely to save face.

By the way, find one example of cheerleading in this entire thread from anybody but you. Nobody in this thread once made any claims that Palm is perfect, or even better than any other platform. There is a good measure of that which takes place in these forums, but it didn't take place in this thread, so most of your comment were pointless. You should "man up" and admit that and stop trying to pick a fight where there is no reason to do so. There are plenty of other places for you to have that battle if that is what turn you on.
Finally... forget it I won't even go there. It's not worth it. And based on your first post in this thread, you are not either. (I take that back, I'm going to assume you were just having a bad day)
