It's back, thanks to Access, who acquired the rights to Graffiti following the Palm / Xerox settlement in 2006, but only on Android devices.

Typical of such alternate text entry methods on Android, Graffiti for Android has to be enabled in... Read more...
When Palm demo'd the Pre a year ago in January, the phone was seen as the company's last chance to reverse its fortunes. Despite positive reviews and praise for the company's WebOS and Palm Pixi, the once-dominant cell phone and PDA manufacturer has continued to lose ground (and money). For Q3 2010 Palm reported a loss of $18.5 million. That's significantly better than a year ago, when the company lost $95 million, but the company's quarterly results are ominous for multiple reasons. First off, there's an awful lot of unsold inventory building up in partner stores. Palm may have shipped 960,000... Read more...
Images of Asus' P835 surfaced as early as December of last year, but it has taken a few months for Asus itself to come clean about its new powerhouse cellphone. Or as Asus calls it, "PDA phone."

That's 800 x 480, on a cellphone!Additionally, the new Glide interface promises to be the "most innovative, intuitive and interactive mobile user interface available today," though it's really just a skin over the pre-loaded Windows...

AMD is revealing a new technology brand today to highlight some recent advances made in the company's stream and GPU computing initiatives.  The new brand is aptly named ATI Stream.ATI Stream is essentially a amalgamation of all of ATI's previous initiatives like Close To Metal (CTM), Compute Abstraction Layer (CAL), and Brook+ (AMD’s modified Brook open source compiler), encompassed under a single brand.  The goal, as NVIDIA has done to some degree with CUDA and PhysX, is to not only take ATI Stream mainstream, but to also better serve the enterprise...

Though you might not go there as often yet, you soon will.  It's a random sort of babble that sounds mysteriously entertaining at first and then sucks you in like some cheesy sit-com.  What am I speaking of you say?
