PalmSource stock hits record low

Stock in PalmSource closed at a record low price on Wednesday, ending the day at $8.00 per share, after testing the $7.92 mark earlier in the day. The stock has been in decline for some time, among concerns about the company’s lack of profitability and vague long term plans. Even the recent announcement that the company was cutting 50 jobs, or 16% of its workforce, failed to overcome the news that they expected an unprofitable quarter.



Verizon Treo update

Palm has posted an updated ROM for the Verizon version of the Treo 650. From the Palm support site:

  • Latest version of Wireless Sync email application software
  • Internal settings modification to allow correct access to Verizon Wireless roaming partner networks



Turn Windows Smartphone into PC mouse

The perfect thing for Windows Smartphone users who do a lot of presentations. Psiloc Mobile Mouse allows a Bluetooth enabled Windows Smartphone to act as a Bluetooth mouse for a desktop PC. The directional pad is used for cursor movement, and the soft menu keys are used for the left and right mouse buttons. Besides Windows XP SP2, no desktop software is needed.
