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.

Comparing iPhone sales to Palm sales, I'd say Apple could give two craps about what Palm does.

I'll bet there are people who used the exact same reasoning back in the early-mid 80s: "Comparing Mac to IBM-PC sales, I'd say Apple could give two craps about what IBM and Microsoft do."

And I'm sure that RIM, Palm, Google, Symbian, Microsoft, ec, are hoping Apple takes exactly that sort of short-sighted approach. Maybe they'll all get together and send Steve Jobs a "thank-you" card when Apple repeats history and squanders their market lead by being neurotic control freaks.
