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.

c'mon... Atari had STpad "devices consisting of almost nothing but screen" before anybody else!

1991 of Atari STpad... (which never shipped, and at least most demo units were mock-ups it seems: http://www.old-computers.com/MUSEUM/computer.asp?st=1&c=269 - oh, and certainly developed at best in parallel with the first Thinkpad, which probably was the more visible one http://www.thinkwiki.org/wiki/ThinkPad_History )

...is before 1989? ( http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/GRiDPad http://www.computinghistory.org.uk/det/6565/GRidPad-1910/ actually sold and used)

Well, I suppose that's the expected, from the likes of you (with unquestioning Apple praise and all), standard of historical accuracy...
