ahhh crap, just realized I could probably take the p-boot source that Megous put together as a bootloader gui for the and jettison a fair bit of the code and slot in instead and have a non-functional yet nicely bootstrapped forth-based smartphone to flesh out... if it wasn't trying to run a full operating system this allwinner a64 hardware could scream as a purpose-built "embedded" device...

If anyone is looking to buy Palm stuff, I bought my m500 and accessories from and can highly recommend them. Everything I got was in pristine condition. The m500 came with the battery replaced, and the screen looked brand new (not a single scratch or anything).

Definitely a bit more expensive than most eBay listings, but still pretty cheap, definitely worth it for the guaranteed quality. Looks like everything also comes with a 3 month warranty.

I acquired a second recently.

@djsundog Even funnier: TWC owns what used to be WeatherUnderground, named after The Weather Underground revolutionary movement, which would surely have bombed IBM if they got the chance.

@djsundog yeah, long time now. The notion was that they were feeding the weather data into IBM’s big logistics AIs. planning shipping routes and shit. “Powered by Watson”
