Apple "With the success of the iPod and Apple's bulging bank balance, the time has never been better for Apple to grow itself through acquisition. The thought that Apple might be interested in purchasing the struggling PDA manufacturer Palm has been floating around for a while. Steve Jobs even tried to purchase the company in the late 90s, according to the San Jose Mercury News. However, the rumor has recently gained some traction with the call by multiple investors for Palm to sell itself. Also, some key Palm employees, such as co-founder and former company president Donna Dubinsky, have previously worked with Apple."

Too bad Palm Inc. doesn't own BeOS, you're thinking of Palm Source, who was bought by Access, who probably won't be selling. What a tangled web these handhelds weave!

Well depends on who you ask...

In I Robot, Will Smith's character says the wink means "Trust me"

At work, apparently it means "sexual harassment"

At the club it means something else...

I don't think it really means "I'm kidding"...but it's up to the interpretation.
