Palm Computing: Self-Destruction By Self-Distraction

The decline and fall of the Palm empire

How many times has Palm distracted, divided and plundered the company with spin-offs, acquisitions and mismanagement?

For fuck’s sake. What Palm needs is a leader like Steve Jobs. Someone with taste and vision. Ed Colligan just doesn’t seem to be that kind of guy. He’d be a great lieutenant to such a person. But he just isn’t the leader Palm requires if it’s to celebrate a 20th year of existence (especially as an independent company).
