Well, this is a public forum. However, I did goof a bit. PalmSource
is older than one year, so the rumor of Sony trying to purchase it from
Palm Inc would have had to have been longer ago than that.
; I am among the sad Palm users that see the damaging effects of this.
Me, too. It was with regret that I switched from my last Clie (T615).
It was a great device. But I wanted to move to a SmartPhone more. So
I got a Kyocera 7135 and sold my Clie to my (older) brother.
