    Tech News: Apple to Buy out Palm?

    Personal Computer World reports that 'Speculation that Apple plans to buy handheld maker Palm has been revived by a call from two leading Palm investors for the company to be put up for sale, according to the local paper of both companies.'"

    Maybe there will be an iPalm coming with a pen interface and iTunes.

    I would be seriously surprised. What possible technology are they going to buy? PalmSource already has been sold, so its not that horrid OS, and why would an OS company by it considering most of the best PALM OS engineers are on the iPod team already?
