Wow, I’ve been so busy that I didn’t even notice this release until my phone reminded me this morning.  If you’ve done anything “hacky” on your phone (including letting me mess with it), it might be worth it for you to read this post from Precentral.net (link to the post below).

webOS 1.3.5 is upon us! It brings with it a new way of handling apps.

For the non-nerds, er, non-homebrewers: the big news here is that Palm is now storing apps in a new place – the USB partition – so you are limited only by the 8 gigs of onboard storage. Install away, friends! While you’re at it, rejoice in the knowledge that the Official App Catalog is no longer tagged “Beta.” Now we’ve hit the big time.

Well written, well referenced post over at PalmAddicts, one of my favorite megablogs for a long time. I think there is a lot of truth in that statement that Apple sees Palm as a serious threat.

Isn’t weird how much free marketing Palm is getting off the iPhone?  Every newspaper article and gadget blog is comparing the iPhone 3GS to the Palm Pre, as if they are worth comparing.  As if this tiny company that was on the brink of bankrupcy has a device that is worth comparing on equal footing with the biggest hit the technological universe has known for… maybe the last decade.  Oh my! the iPhone is 11% faster.  Oh! the iPhone boots 20 seconds faster (who boots their phone?).  Palm really has something good going on right now…

Nope, the answer is much simpler than that. It is because Palm is the very reason itself, it’s because from all of the big companies out there Apple sees Palm as one of them who could actually become a serious threat in the future. Especially when Jon Rubinstein is now appointed as the new CEO, replacing Ed Colligan the longest running leader of Palm.
