RIP Palm?

Well this is sad, but, predictable.

This article tells us that HP is dropping the mobile division, tablet and webOS.  Pretty much dooming Palm.

Palm was once the leader, but, it goes to show you that a company has to be nimble and change when change is in the air (which is like…..all the time!).

I have seen so many promising videoconferencing companies bite the dust for that very same reason.  Remember Zydacron?  They did not see IP coming even though they had great advice (one guess who gave them that advice!).  How about NUTS?  Intel Proshare?  Objective?  Sooo many, that I will have to go back in archives to find them all.

But I won’t.
