PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless If you're a Palm fan, you might want to look away - or not. Chris Ziegler has written a fantastic article on the short rise and eventual demise of webOS, and with it, Palm. I'm generally not a fan of companies, but I have my exceptions - and Palm is one of them. Correction - Palm was one of them.

think it was patents specifically that forced Palm to intentionally make input more cumbersome than Graffiti. Some parasite had a "alphabet of letters each drawn in one stroke or so" kind of patent and Palm/Palm's Users got screwed over it.

I've yet to find a stylus input method as fast and accurate as graffiti. Never let user benefit and technological evolution get in the way of profiteering though I huh.
