I bid $1, but then found out that the process doesn't work the same as on The Price is Right.
What part of "Ph'nglui mglw'nafh Cthulhu R'lyeh wgah'nagl fhtagn" don't you understand?
Hum, i would of liked to see what apple with come out with if they had the webOS, so apple pretty much only wanted the patents and technology? :D
I think you're right, Inspector. It's sad that the people running these company seriously entertain such acquisitions so that they can buy a new summer home when they know it means the ultimate destruction of the company and is harmful to all of the non-executive staff.
Well while WebOS might be dead, Apple might be able to implement most of the patents and technology that the WebOS has into iOS, while the mobile team would help with making new iOS versions. And the mobile phones, well they might sell the mobile phone division to another company and license WebOS to them, at least that's what I think.

Evil, I saw that you had bid $1... so I big $2... sorry bro... this business is cut throat... had to do it lol
Anyway... maybe apple wanted them, just to keep them off the market from other companies... the same way Acer bought out packard bell just to keep them out of the hands of HP or Lenovo lol

"Even with Android, Google was bidding to pick up the pieces of Palm, though it's said that their bids were never nearly large enough to be considered alongside HP and RIM."
O.o What? Google didn't outbid HP and RIM? I'm sure they could have done; what reason would they have for bidding so low? I mean, Palm would have had the best future with Google, IMO, and (at least to me) they have always seemed friendly with open-source.
Yea Nethersprite, I have to agree. Google snatching up Palm would have most likely been the best outcome that could have happened. Apple getting them, I just see way more patent troll lawsuits. HP, well we'll see what they do. But Google would have rolled most of the tech from WebOS into Android and most likely kept Palm selling phones. Think, just like that there would be a "true Google" phone line.
