FYI/SA

A new company now has the rights to the Palm name and logo and has a placeholder web site called mynewpalm.com. They have also taken possession of the palm.com domain and any link with palm.com redirects to mynewpalm.com. The unintended consequence of this (unintended as in, no one was paying attention) is that (I believe) *all* of the Palm downloads on the HPwebos.com Palm archive pages now do nothing more than redirect you to mynewpalm.com. This is because HOP still had those downloads mapped to the palm.com domian, but the masters of the internet have switched the tracks so to speak. So you can still find the Palm archive pages at HP (they were mapped to the hpwebos.com, although for some pages you have grab the page url and change "palm.com" to "hpwebos.com"-- sadly, this latter trick does not work for downloads).

Just though folks would like to know. Hang on to those backed up installation files if you are still using Palm Desktop. Many 3rd party sites that offer them for download used the palm.com links. CNET does have a download of Palm Desktop 6.2.

Might be time to move on. ;)

But that's just it-- your links no longer work either. The information pages may open, but the download links send you to mynewpalm.com. The download archives are broken. I have hosted 4.1.4E and 6.2 at a page I have maintained for the TX: http://www2.hookmt.com:8080/Palm/

Yep, all are broken. Sucks, eh?

We moved Palm 6.2 to Download.com. That one is still working
