Ryan Block, writing this article at in November. I guess it is usually safe to bet on Apple, but this was a great commentary on the goofy statement by Palm CEO Ed Colligan. I’d have loved to be a fly on the wall when Ed saw the news from Steve Job’s keynote. I wonder if he is still smiling?

Here is a photo of the article, preserved for posterity (I love the ad for the iPhone now on the page too… kind of adds something special, dontcha think?):


I love the statement by Ed (Palm CEO): “We’ve learned and struggled for a few years here figuring out how to make a decent phone,” and “PC guys are not going to just figure this out. They’re not going to just walk in.”

Enter Apple… LOL (If you don’t understand what I mean… go to Apple’s web site and watch the part of the keynote on the iPhone.)
