Is this how it ends?

The Globe and Mail ran a story on Palm Inc. looking for a buyer and, some five days later, there are no comments on it.
Not one.

Nobody cares.
That's sad. Palm was once the PDA standard. Sorry. Let me rephrase that - Palm was once the PDA, period. I began my smartphone love affair on a Palm IIIx way back before the bubble burst.
I still use a 680, just not clear which platform should be the one to which I migrate when it finally dies (I've had recommendations for both iPhone and an Android phone from former Palm users).

But, to see this, that even the remotest possibility that some company has interest in Palm should garner nary a notice, is just sad.

It is the end of an era.
