In kind of bizzaro-world te

In kind of bizzaro-world tech news, Palm has agreed to buy Handspring. For those who aren't up on the history of these two companies, the founders of Handspring are also the founders of Palm. They founded Palm, sold it to US Robotics, made money, got sold to 3Com, left because they didn't like 3Com, founded Handspring, made money, and are now selling the company they founded back to the company they left. Not only that, but Jeff Dawkins (one of the two founders along with Donna Dubinsky) has taken a job with 3Com, the company that he left to found Handspring.

Gah.
