"Funny, I seem to remember a time when Apple was moving towards bankruptcy."
Yes, when they were lagging behind MS on the OS fundamentals side. (They did have better UI in some respects, but even there, it had a lot of shortcomings by the end of the OS 9 era, when MS had standardized the right click and scroll wheel and Apple was still figuring those things out.)
So, you just contradicted your whole point there.
Anyway, Palm's WebOS is definitely a strong competitor with Android and iPhone on the technical side, but on the business side, it looks like they'll be out of the market by the end of the year if not sooner. It's a shame, but so it goes.
