Although that would be funny to see, I doubt that their marketing dept would have the balls to use it.

Bono and his buddies lost $185,000,000 on the deal. Hahahahahaha.

That’s a lot of money! Guess nobody has seen this coming back in 2007, although there is another mobile phone manufacturer that, at least here in Europe, is having a hard time keeping up with the big guys: Motorola.

I’m wondering if HPalm will go down in flames, you know, like NaPalm.

I think HP just got a hand job. I wonder if they get the Palm-Pre girl with it.

Can’t place price on a human, but I don’t think she is creepy, but neither was the Borg Queen, then of course, I knew she really was Susannah York, or wash she?:eek:
