Palm opens developer program, adds plug-in support

,----[ Quote ]
| The number of applications available for 
| webOS is much smaller than for the iPhone or 
| Google's Android OS. To close this gap, Palm 
| will also open up its application 
| distribution channel to developers and Web 
| sites, giving them access to detailed 
| information about applications and 
| statistics, such as the number of downloads. 
| This will allow them to build their own 
| application directories and application 
| ranking mechanisms, Mitic said.

| It's speedier, thanks to the double RAM
| that's been added, and noticeably easier

,----[ Quote ]
| Since its initial release less than two days
| ago, development has proceeded apace on the
| webOS port of classic FPS DOOM. The latest
| news, however, has implications beyond just
| this particular port itself. For starters, the
| game no longer requires any fooling around in
| the Terminal to get it started: you can now
| load it from an icon in your launcher, just
| like any other app. You can also fire up
| multiple instances of the game in multiple
| cards - possibly useless in of itself, but
| it's great for that geek cool factor.
