CEOh-Snap-Back! Palm Retracts McNamee's iPhone Attacks!

Ouch! According to, Palm has just given uber-investor Roger McNamee the PR equivalent of the Price-is-Right FAIL buzzer. Bum-Bum-Ba-Bum-Bowwwwwwww...

Much of it is numbers and analyst based, but a few gems glare out, especially #5, #8, and #9. Words like "premature" and "withdrawn" are used. Double ouch.

Read the whole post for a great daily dose of schadenfreude.

Of course, it wasn't all bad news for Palm yesterday: Engadget editor-in-chief Josh Topolsky hit Late Night with Jimmy Fallon to show off the Pre, and show techies are comedy gold as well.
