My favorite quote found reading comments in the negative press:
At one time you could have said Apple was late since Palm already had the Smart Phone market cornered.
Heh - it really is true. Today, seems like the press and most of the noisy people are Apple fan boys / girls but tomorrow it won't be the same and the 'obvious' stupidity of HP buying Palm may or may not be true.
WebOS will probably die at HP but it was a great effort by Palm. Shame.
