"There has been some ... interesting news from the tech sector
"Firstly, the Apple vs. Adobe vendetta gets even nastier, with a
public letter from Steve Jobs explaining why Adobe's Flash
multimedia format will not ever be allowed into the garden of pure
ideology that is the iPhone/iPad fork of OSX.
"Secondly, Hewlett-Packard are buying Palm, apparently for
Palm's WebOS â€" with rumours of plans to deploy a
range of WebOS tablets to rival the iPad â€" at the
same time, they're killing their forthcoming Windows 7 slate, just
as Microsoft are killing the Courier tablet project.
"Finally, gizmodo (not, perhaps, an unbiased source in this
regard given current events) have a fun essay discussing Apple's
Worldwide Loyalty Team, the internal unit tasked with hunting down
and stopping leaks."
