In the past, I have considered Palm to be a company that understands
and employs good design, both the industrial and interaction flavors.
I was disappointed to read this quote by there CEO:
> BARCELONA (MarketWatch) -- Palm, Inc, the maker of the Treo smart > phone, will continue to focus on ease of use and reliability rather > than design, Palm CEO Ed Colligan said in an interview at the 3GSM > telecommunications trade show here.
Focusing on ease of use rather than design? He makes this comment in
regards to the iPhone, of course, so I suppose he means visual design
(or more likely flashy graphics and animation), but that was an
unfortunate turn of phrase.
