Dear Palm: It’s time for an intervention
Here is an open letter to Palm written by Engadget via Digg. After hearing that Steve Jobs is an avid gizmodo reader one hopes that the Palm execs (or their administrative assistants) read the tech news as well as this letter is spreading like wildfire through the tech community.
The gist: Engadget has done, I feel, a wonderful job of summarizing Palm’s victories in bringing useful and innovative products to market only to lose touch with what people want today. The company is still a favorite of many of us but seems like it is dooming itself to a slow and painful death while competitors slowly but steadily take the very market away that Palm invented.
