Author: JT Smith
NewsFactor Network writes "There is a lot of hoopla regarding Palm's recent acquisition of Be, Inc.'s intellectual property. Recent statements by Palm have confirmed what many BeOS users knew all along: US$1 million was a steal. Palm bought an extremely advanced OS for ten cents on the dollar. They have also announced their intentions to put their new DoBe employees to work on the next-generation handheld that is slated to be very nicely multi-threaded and media-oriented, areas in which the Be development team excels."
