Considering the level of innovation at Palm for the last, say umm 5+ years (?) this is not a total surpise.  Still a bit sad, as this seems to be yet another nail in the coffin for Palm as a company.  Personally I like the Palm product even though it hasn’t changed much in quite some time.  Between the layoffs, the flopped Foleo, and massive delays in the...

Ebay has already admitted this deal was a mistake with a $900 million write-down against the whopping $2.6 billion price tag.  John Donahue, current head of the auction business, will be the new CEO starting March 31st. ...

No surprise here. Lately Apple is kicking some serious butt. For Q1 2008 Apple posted revenue of $9.6 billion and $1.58 billion in profit. Holy Shamolee!
