Sprint Palm Pre and Pixi users rejoice: webOS 1.4 has landed

Ladies and germs on the Sprint network, the highly anticipated webOS 1.4 update for the Palm Pre and Pixi is a go! All you have to do is hit the update button, sit back, relax and enjoy a fresh OS moments later. One of the bigger features is the ability to record and edit video as well as webOS being prepped for Adobe Flash.

      ~The Lack of Credibility~W/Palm & Verizon & Sprint~

      By Common Knowledge, as Expressed, By The Global Tech, Community~The Palm Pre Was Launched Prematurely on June 6th, 2009 & The Building Blocks to a Successful Palm Pre Product Line~Would Have Been, Having This New Webos1.4, Coming Out on June 6th, of 2009, & or Another Date, as Opposed To This Current Upgrade, Which By All Preliminary Accounts is Fantastic in a Pragmatic Fashion & @ Multiple Levels~on Feb~26th…
      This is Where, Corporate & Internal Fear & Apprehension & External Pressure & Anxiety~Sway Good Judgement…
      This New Virtual Experience, Would Have Been Awesome For The Initial Consumer & The 1.4~Update~Enables The Customer To “Actually” Feel The Acute Responsiveness of the Machine.

      ~This is The Essence of The 1.4 Update~

      It is Quicker~Faster~&~More on Point With The Assured Commands & The App Launching, Which, Drives Their Internal Content, is More, Inclusive, Within The Context of The Work, They Actually Facilitate & Accomplish & Master~That is in Rapid Fire Succession, For The Customer @ Large…

      It is True & Diligent in its Purpose & Direction, in Developing This Product Line, of The Conceptual Formulation of What Really Counts~”Exceptional Internal Function”~Over, Launching~150 Million Pieces of Ludicrous Apps…Which Can Always Be Leveraged, Once The “Machine” Becomes Operationally, “Stellar” in Nature…..

      This Palm Pre~Cell Phone Now, Has a Certain Competent & Sassy~Snappiness & Executes, with Authority, Which, Brings This “Machine” a Great Deal More, Authenticity, Integrity, in Its Compelling Competency & Maturity & with a Sense of “Internal” Accomplishment & The Integrity of Those Accomplishments, Bleeds Right into The Domain of Positive Self Esteem, in Humanistic, Tech Talk~lol~Regarding The Greater Good, of The Development of This Palm Pre & of Course~For Every~One Associated With This Global Project…

      It Brings all of Us, a Chance To Bear in Mind a Need For a Complete & Thorough Game Plan, From Hard & Soft Ware Development To Pre~Launch, Subsequent Launching & The Immediate Tech Support & Follow Thru..& @ All Levels of The Bureaucracy From Palm & Sprint & Verizon..

      ..As We Can See, The Big Three Are Playing Catchup, To All of The Hazards w/in The Multiple Levels of The Developmental Sequences of Life & Pre~Teen, Latency & Anxiety & The Lack of Adolescent Structure w/in
      “The Management By Objectives” Components, That Are Thoroughly Thought Out With The Contractual Agreements Between Palm & All of Their Carriers…

      This is Very Shoddy Execution..in Terms of Their Goals & Objectives, Regarding,Their Over All Business Plans & Development & The Execution w/in The Internal Phone Structure of R & D & Their, World~Wide Marketing & Business Development..Arena’s….

      Palm, Sprint & Verizon & Possibly AT&T & T~Mobile~Might Want To Take This Composition, into Consideration, Before They Blunder Their Way Through Another Mystifying Set of Individual Launches & The Fragmented Business Development Models & Failed Marketing Efforts, That Needs To Be Synergized For The Greater Good of The Next & Possibly Ground Breaking, Project, With The Launch of the Palm Pre~2~in Mid~June~&~Hopefully The PP2~Will Be Launched Simultaneously @ “All” of Their Carriers~Rather Than The Splintered & The Iconic & Individually, Selfish, Home Boy~&~Contractually Obligated Corporate~Wants & Their Alleged “Me First” Needs~That Could & May, Very Well~Fracture,The Very Core of Ones Corporate Existence….

      Launch This PP2~@ All of Palm’s Carriers & Their Domains, Simultaneously, With a Holistically~Structured & Coordinated Fusion of a Synchronized Launch~That Will Blow Every~Body Away, With The Synergized Commitment of Palm & its World Wide Carriers…

      That Would Be a Colossal, Mind Bending, Coordinated Holistic Effort~That Would Indeed, Change The Face of The World Wide Perceptual Frame of Reference of Palm, Potentially Becoming a Potent & Game Changing Force, Within The Universal Flow~& That~Even Jon Rubinstein & Roger McNamee, Could Appreciate & Resonate With In Vivo…

      Respectfully Submitted~E. Patrick
