I am Palm
This morning my employer changed its name back to 'Palm', dropping the 'One' from their name after paying 30 million USD to PalmSource, my old employer. The new logo is a big orange dot with a Delorian-like 'palm' in the middle. You can see it at http://www.palm.com.

I'm happy. We're going to do great things.

They also said they can use the name by itself outside the big orange dot... the font also reminds me of early 1980's Apple Computer logos.

*that's* why it looks familiar!!!

Must refresh my geekdom. When you said a Delorian-like 'palm' I skipped the literal quotes and was trying to envision a sleek hand symbol. Obviously, my disappointment was great upon seeing the new logo. Stupid new string []!

Actually, it's more early Apple Computer than the Delorian "DMC". Just be sure that you delete[] all those strings... otherwise, you'll not delete the whole array and memory will be leaked and kittens will cry.

wow. That was so hot!

Me likey the new logo. But considering my lj name, that's no surprise. :-)

You're on the list for when the swag pipeline starts flowing :)

I still store all my stuff in ~/pilot/*

... don't care for your new-fangled fancy-dance name stuff.

(God, I feel old.)

Did they pay that $30Mil in cash, or stock?

Re: I still store all my stuff in ~/pilot/*

It was actually 26.7mil in cash, if I read the reports correctly.
