PalmSource Day 1: A Slight Delay

Things are a bit confused here at the PalmSource conference. There has been a power outage affecting the entire city block the San Jose Convention Center is on. This has thrown PalmSource's schedule a bit awry.

The first keynote address from David Nagel originally scheduled for 10 am Pacific time, has been moved to 1 pm. This has left hundreds of attendees milling around with nothing to do for a couple of hours. Everyone is being patient though, possibly because lunch will still be served on time.

There is a joking rumor being circulated that Microsoft is responsible for sabotaging the power. A more likely culprit is the large construction project going on next door. Palm employees are working to find portable generators in case regular power isn't restored by 1 pm.

David Nagel is the President and CEO of the new Palm OS subsidiary, also called PalmSource. His first keynote will be about the spinoff of PalmSource.

Very clever, and well said. Laughter is becoming the best medicine in this arena.

Damn Microsoft!

There is only one company that can totally destroy any event or software through a single memo: Microsoft. I'm sure that they sabotaged PalmSource to show superiority. Sickening.

Whatever, the poweroutage just remind us the importance of the power on PDA!!!! So you better to get a device that can live long, such as my TRGpro, can up 3 weeks by one pair of battery! :)

Please don't blame MSFT for everything. If Nagel shoots himself in the a$$, are you going to blame MSFT for that too??? LOOK WITHIN.

Hi, there.

It's a funny joke about MS ;-)
BUT: I strongly hope that Palm OS 5 will NO Windows CE Clone. If Mr. Nagel decided to do so... Palm will loose Market Share and soon it will be History.
Let them have done (oh, my english...) a real great improved OS with SMALL new units in this lovely Palmfactor!



ok, I'm the german guy, so don't blame me for my english ;-)

Heh. No, Microsoft wouldn't have sabotaged the power at would give everyone a chance to be grateful for the Palm's longer battery life. :D

Nothing to do? Nothing to do? You are a bunch of bored people with Palms in your pockets likely with at least a few games. Share some IR games and get the Monopoly tournament started (or WorldWar tournament or Extratime tournament).
