    I recently watched Pirates of Silicon Valley (awesome movie) and have already seen Social Network (great movie) and I love these style movies with the corporate drama. I really wish they would make one for Palm/webOS. Doesn't Jon Rubinstein have spare cash, He should total produce this movie.

    Well there is no point in waiting for producers, we might as well pick the cast, pick the scenes and start writing.

    Cast:
    Jon Rubinstein -
    Ed Colligan -
    Matias Duarte -
    Paul Mercer -
    Mike Abbott -
    Mitch Allen -
    Sam Greenblatt -
    Leo Apotheker -
    Meg Whitman -

    Good place to look for cast HERE
    I'm not sure what the opening scene should be but was thinking Ed Colligan at Ruby's villa.

    .
    We also need a Mark Hurd and Jodie Fisher, because every movie should have a little "sexy time".

    Let's not forget people like Rod (and other notable Homebrew personalities), and Enda, who's been with Palm for over a decade and followed webOS over to LG..

    But then, it's impossible to tell this story in a satisfactory manner without being sued by Verizon, so I really doubt anyone will want to take on this project...

    this is an interesting idea

    perhaps a fancy documentary around the story of Palm. That's an odd story you don't see everyday. from the splitting into palmSource and palmOne, Windows Mobile Treo, untimely death at the hands of a CEO with a completely different idea for the computing behemoth ...
