"Time… is what keeps everything from happening at once" - Ray Cummings

Time is falling down on the job for me. But, later this week I'm going to Sunnyvale for a HP/Palm TouchPad developer session! Very excited to get to try out my apps on the TouchPad and see how it feels.

The webOS team will be there as well and I'll have a chance to ask them questions. So - anything people want me to ask? (please only questions they can answer, i.e. not "Will the Pre3 be on Sprint?")

*sigh* Why the fuck can't they answer that?

Or "When are you going to make it right? Or at least tell us what that means?"

Yeah. I assume when they're ready to answer such questions they'll answer them loud and clear to the whole world...

It's almost like a company founded on the idea of making people wait.

I'm surprised none of my friends have ever said "Love your abuser!" back to me. Then again, it's HPalm, so it gets no attention anyway, so they don't know my troubles.

Well, Apple does the same sort of thing. The difference is that Apple doesn't wait absurdly long between refreshes of their hardware, so I'm hoping going forward HP do a better job of not doing that.

Yeah, but Apple pretty much established their pattern, and there's only one phone (and for the longest time, one carrier). Granted, rumor is this year they're slipping to September, but whatevz.

Remember all the furor over Palm tracking your location? Doesn't all this Apple/Google stuff strike you as funny? I'd mention it on my blog, but nobody remembers the Palm thing from two years ago.

Yeah, it seems that these things occur cyclically :-)
