Talk, Rumors, X Versus Y As it turns out, the relationship between Apple and Palm is even less amicable than we already thought it to be. Bloomberg got their hands on communications between Ed Colligan, then-CEO of Palm, and Steve Jobs in which Jobs made a proposal in which the two companies would promise to refrain from hiring each other's employees. Colligan, however, rejected the proposal, calling it wrong and "likely illegal".

Ya know, here is another example of not knowing when to speak or what to say... Why would Colligan even come out with this? What's the point now?

The author really seems to be trying to shoe-horn what went on between Jobs and Colligan into some sort of illegal activity... which never happened.

It's a leak, but how do you know it's Colligan's leak? Though it is funny timing since he just left Palm and joined Elevation Partners yesterday...

Colligan didn't come out with anything. Bloomberg "found" it. In fact it even says he declined to comment when contacted about this.

I can see that Apple refused comment, but how did Bloomberg "find this?" (Ixnay on good reporting).
