PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless Earlier this week, I detailed a number of things Apple could learn from how Palm handles its phones, operating system, and applications. Today, news broke out of the first application rejection from Palm's App Catalog, and from this and Palm's actions surrounding this rejection Apple can again learn a whole lot.

On the one hand, what Palm has essentially done is say to the developers of the rejected app "we aren't going to endorse/distribute what you've done - but we're not going to try to prevent you from distributing the app or prevent anyone from using it."

On the other hand, the stance that Apple has taken towards Pre/iTunes sync is essentially "we're not going to support what you've done - AND we're going to go out of our way to break it at every opportunity."


IMHO, that is why its slightly ironic. FYI, that quote above compares the two. Thus making them comparable,albeit more of a comparison between an apple and an orange rather than a Macintosh and a Fuji or between a Hammer and a Dolphin.
