Treo 700w: A marriage not made in heaven

Treo 700W

You thought the apocalypse was upon us when Apple Computer switched to processor chips from Intel, which Mac fans had considered the Dark Side for more than 20 years?

Well, try this on for size: Palm's new Treo 700w cell phone-organizer runs on software from Microsoft. Yes, that Microsoft, whose palmtop software was mocked by Palm employees for years as bloated and inefficient.

What's next--a new radio show with Rush Limbaugh and Al Franken as co-hosts?

The first question, in Palm's case, is: why? The answer is: corporate sales.
