If Google told you to jump off a bridge, would you do it? And if you did it, would you seriously try to sue Google for telling you to do it? Oh, America. You're so messed up. In other news today, Google unofficially banned Windows from its campus; anonymous sources say the DOJ is expanding its Apple probe; iPad is totally winning; and nobody quit Facebook on Quit Facebook day. Quelle surprise.

Mike the Developer – MacOS is only dev platform for iPhone
Well, there are quite a few of us who really like our Palm phone, and webOS.
For me I was very specific about what I need, and what I want. And the Palm Pre+ with webOS is the best choice for me.
I hope HP give Palm the muscle to keep fighting, before android or iphone catch up. Seriously, this is an amazing phone. I’d love to explain why if you are curious.

Hey Buzz crew,
Yesterday I stopped into my local Sprint store to check out the Android OS and get some info on the EVO. Sadly, this one experience may have turned me off of Android all together, and definitely to Sprint.
I have three requirements for a smart phone, and the staff there couldn’t answer one of my needs.
Requirement 1: Podcast streaming. I asked if I could stream podcasts instead of downloading them and if there was a simple way to find podcasts. The staff’s response? “”What’s a podcast?”" Seriously, that was their answer.
Requirement 2: Audio books. The emplyee’s response was “”there’s a kindle app that does that.”" I kid you not! I found out it can’t do it, and that’s ok, but they couldn’t tell me that. I’m guessing the clerks there don’t read much of anything, including manuals.
Requirement 3: Easy to use. I handed my 7 yr old my IPhone 3G and she could use all the features, music, maps, apps after a 10 second tutorial. I swear, the staff couldn’t get maps to show up, couldn’t even find the music store, and couldn’t show me how to find apps using the one Android phone they had on site.
After all this, they clerk asked if I wanted to be on the list to guarentee I get an EVO next week. Somehow, I don’t think there will be much of a line.
