PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless Well, if we had one of those obnoxious "BREAKING!"-tags on OSNews, this would definitely fit the bill. While we were busy discussing whether HTC or Lenovo would snap up Palm, another major worldwide computer company picked up the Sunnyvale-based mobile outfit: Hewlett-Packard has bought Palm. Updates from the conference call inside.

don't do to PALM what you did to Compaq! now that you have PALM it's your responsibility to keep it as good as it is or make it better. do not cannibalize is like you did to compaq... that is all.

Cannibalize? You make it sound like Compaq actually had products worth cannibalizing...

Aplha servers and Tru64 Unix. Sure Compaq didn't create them but rather acquired them from DEC, but Compaq didn't seem to want to kill the line of RISC processor and corresponding OS. As soon as HP came into the picture, plans were thrown out of the window. I recall back in 2000, that we were promised a roadmap that extended through 2007. We were promised the EV7 and likely EV78. These promises offered by HP, were killed.

Carly is not in charge so Palm should be fine.
