Palm Puke

I am a happy new Palm pilot user (the low-end Zire), and I’m particularly impressed with the thoughtfulness they apply to usability issues. But that thoughtfulness does not necessarily extend to their marketing efforts. In today’s inbox was the company’s monthly Palm newsletter, with a distinctly Fourt of July theme:

You can bet your britches that if Palm had a time machine, Thomas
Jefferson would scoop up the Palm? Tungsten? W handheld faster
than you can say “Declaration of Independence”.

What did Moon Unit Zappa so eloquently say? “Gag me with a spoon.”
