Not a marrage but more like the hot shot high school kid that tried to go on their own (Handspring) getting beaten up buy the boys downtown and coming home. Those in the former Handspring have a lot of wounds to lick and one big piece of lower back pain called Springboard.

To celebrate, they hired 5 more Vice Presidents, who were then released at a public ceremony.

Sure, Palm can publically announce something like this but total silence about the T3 issues...

I don't see where you getting this Pocket PC slant from. He's just pointing out the current and changing market conditions, and problems both companies will face. Hardly biased, it's called reporting the facts.
