Palm and 3Com re-united

So, HP bought Palm... not Apple, as has been rumored over the last couple of weeks.
Palm and 3Com [1] finally re-united.

IMHO (and as a former Palm fanboy) this still does not give Palm/HP a chance in the smart phone market: HP/Compaq never managed the iPaq to smart phone transition - with the help of giant Microsoft - so why should they be able to manage it now without any help, when they are up against Apple and Google (and. yes, Nokia, but they are an easy target).

[1] Sorry, "HP networking" as they are called since last week.

James Gosling to leave Sun/Oracle

Well, this kind of sort of in a way was to be expected. James Gosling left Sun Oracle, as he reported here.
