Life get's easier if you can't make your mind up whether to buy a Palm or Handspring PDA. Palm is to buy Handspring in a $169m paper deal. If you remember, Handspring was formed by two former Palm execs - Jeff Hawkins, the designer, and Donna Dubinsky. Handspring will be renamed in the autumn. Palmspring has a nice ring to it, but I suspect they mean Palm. At the same time Palm announced that they are so spin off Palmsource.

The Guardian speculated a while back about the two Beatles going after Apple Computer as they did in the 1980's. Back then Apple agreed not to venture into the music business (Steve Jobs chose to name his company Apple after the Beatles record label). Fox News think they have more on this, but it's probably idle speculation.
