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.

"Apple did have the Newton long before the world was really ready for it, and before the tech could be packed into a less than awkward form factor.


and palm even predates that by about a year
"

No it doesn't.

The Newton MessagePad came out in 1993.

The first Palm Pilots came out in 1996.
