Palm’s plan was that owners of its Treo smartphones would leap at the chance to cough up $599 for a Foleo, “Palm’s first smartphone companion product”. They’d want to hook up Foleo to Treo using Bluetooth to access the internet on the move.It would be a “new category of mobile device”, Hawkins had said a couple of years previously when first revealing he was working on something new. At the Foleo’s launch, Hawkins gushed that “Foleo is the most exciting product I have ever worked on.”Hawkins was prophetic in one sense: “Smartphones will be the most prevalent personal computers on the planet, ultimately able to do everything that desktop computers can do,” he said. But he turned out to be very wrong by insisting: “There are times when people need a large screen and full-size keyboard. As smartphones get smaller, this need increases. The Foleo completes the picture, creating a mobile-computing system that sets a new standard in simplicity.”Pundits and punters disagreed. Suffering a very aggresively negative critical reception, Palm bashfully and tacitly canned the product the following September, mere months before Asus shipped the first netbook, the Eee PC 701, and four months before Apple whipped out its first Ultrabook-class laptop, the MacBook Air.

But if you think we and others got it wrong, and you have a Treo kicking around, you may be able to get your mitts on one of the few surviving Foleos thanks to current owner and former WebOS Developer Relations team member Josh Marinacci. Josh is flogging off a Foleo and a host of Palm goodies to help his brother Kevin give up work and fight the cancer he’s suffering.Says Josh of the Foleo: “As far as I know it’s never been turned on. [It] includes one hour of phone support from one of the original hw engineers. He has apps for you!”Bidding for the Foleo currently stands at $325, though the estimated market value is down as “priceless” - a reasonably assessment, perhaps, for a device that never made it to market.Other offerings include a wealth of Palm and WebOS schwag, and a fair few Palm devices, from the early days right through to the HP era. There are even a couple of TouchPad tablets, the WebOS-based slates launched to amazing fanfare... only to be canned a few months later.

Archaeologic It will forever be remembered as the butt of a-thousand-and-one jokes about its poor handwriting recognition, but Apple’s MessagePad was bold in its conception. Its legacy is ARM’s conquest of the mobile microprocessor world.The Newton MessagePad is the first in a family of communications assistants from Apple. By combining Newton Intelligence technology with sophisticated communications capabilities, the Newton MessagePads help you stay in touch with friends and colleagues, organize your life, and keep track of your ideas.You can take notes. Make a quick sketch. Format and print letters. Share and synchronize information with your personal computer. Send a fax. Receive pages and messages. Tap into on-line services or electronic mail. Even exchange business cards with a colleague via built-in infrared technology.And wherever you go, the powerful, under-one-pound personal digital assistant goes too, tucked in your pocket or briefcase.The MessagePad was priced at $699, and the first 5,000 devices sold out within hours of being made available to buy. Some 50,000 went in the first 10 weeks. It’s easy to forget now, but the arrival of the MessagePad, rushed though it may well have been, was a topic of real enthusiasm among not only Mac fans but the broader tech community too.

At the time, notebook computers were chunky, weighty devices priced well beyond the wallets of most users. Palmtops were small and cheap but lacked sophistication and power. Might the much less expensive MessagePad at long last open up the world of mobile computing?Apple began work on what would become the MessagePad back in the late 1980s. In 1987, Steve Sakoman, an Apple engineer, decided it would be a good idea to make a device capable of interpreting its user’s handwriting. Indeed, the user would interact with the gadget entirely with a pen, not a keyboard. The device might share information wirelessly.Sakoman had a well-established interest in mobile computing. He’d been poached by Steve Jobs from HP three years previously on the back of his work developing the HP Portable, though at Apple he’d spent his time overseeing the development of desktop Macs: the Plus, the SE and the II.

With his attention back on a mobile device, Sakoman discussed his writing reader notion with former Lotus CEO Mitch Kapor, who proved very receptive to the idea. His ideas validated, Sakoman fleshed out a development project proposal and went knocking on the door of Apple’s engineering chief Jean-Louis Gassée, who was also Sakoman’s boss. Gassée was also impressed with Sakoman’s thinking.The three men – Kapor’s ex-Lotus colleague Jerry Kaplan made a fourth – met to discuss how they might take the project further. The involvement of Kapor and Kaplan, neither of whom were Apple employees, shows there was a clear belief that the way forward was to develop Sakoman’s device outside of Apple. Gassée seems to have been particularly keen on this approach. But Sakoman was unwilling to make the break.Gassée's solution was to grant Sakoman the opportunity to pursue the project within Apple, but well away from the efforts of the company’s main hardware teams, and without much management oversight. Perhaps his cheeky notion was that if it couldn’t be done, Apple would have covered the cost of the evaluation, but if the project proved to be a runner there might still be a chance to establish a new firm to take it to market.

Sakoman's goal was to create his pen-based communication and information-organising device and evolve it to the point where it could be commercialised. He reckoned this process might take up to three years, and might ship for perhaps $2,500. He codenamed the gadget Newton after the scientist’s appearance in the first Apple logo. As the early work progressed, he pulled in Apple engineering talent to help, among them Glenn Adler and Eric Gruenberg who had both worked with Sakoman at HP and had followed him to Apple. Steve Capps, a member of the team that developed the first Macintosh, came on board too.Together they and others worked on the A5 notepad-sized hardware Sakoman had originally envisaged, and which he was now calling Newton. They also started writing an operating system to manage the hardware, software to interpret the user’s scribbles, and a toolbox to support applications running on top of the OS. Apple had acquired a software company called Arus and got some rudimentary handwriting analysis code. Sakoman’s team took that as their starting point, but were soon gifted with algorithms handed to Apple by a band of Russian programmers working behind the Iron Curtain on handwriting recognition.

If you're a follower of Apple product rumors you know that the slimmest of evidence is enough to get the grapevine a-buzzing – and Monday's report that Apple is planning to hold an event on October 15 to announce new iPads, iMacs, and maybe more is as anorexic a bit of speculation as they come.The French website MacGeneration – L'Essentiel du Mac en français – reports (Google translation) that According to the latest gossip – les derniers bruits de couloir – Apple is planning an event on that date to announce that it is upgrading the iMac line to 4th Generation Haswell Intel Core i5 and Core i7 processors, and that it may also unveil its new iPads at the same soirée.The current iMac line was announced last October, with each model powered by a quad-core 3rd Generation Ivy Bridge Intel Core processors. The 21.5-inch iMac is available with a 2.7GHz Core i5-3330S or 2.9GHz Core i5-3470S, and is upgradable to a 3.1GHz Core i7-3770S. Its 27-inch big brother is available with a 2.9GHz Core i5-3470S or 3.2GHz Core i5-3470, and is upgradeable to a 3.4GHz Core i7-3770. An education-only 21.5-inch iMac powered by a dual-core, 3.3GHz Core i3-3225 was introduced this March.

According to MacGeneration, les stocks d'iMac sont au plus bas dans les boutiques physiques – iMac inventories are at their lowest levels in brick-and-mortar stores – which leads them to believe that Haswell upgrades are at hand. That's reasonable – the chips that would be the logical replacements for their current CPUs are certainly now available in Cupertinian quantities.But iMacs are so last decade. What really gets the rumor mill cranked up – even if MacGeneration does not have a solid track record when accurately reporting les derniers bruits de couloir – is the possible appearance next month of new iPads.As The Reg reported earlier this month, the latest iPad scuttlebutt is that a fully redesigned iPad 5 and a Retina display version of the iPad mini will be available for your holiday shopping pleasure this fall. That rumor set came from KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, whose record on such scuttlebutt is better than most.The iPad 5, Kuo says, will be powered by a Retina display–enabled A7X chip, meaning that it will share the same basic 64-bit architecture as does the A7 chip that he correctly predicted would appear in the iPhone 5s.That chip is presumably built around the ARMv8 architecture, and should have enough oomph to power not only smartphones and tablets, but also laptops that don't demand the top processing power – laptops such as the MacBook Air, for example.

So here's The Reg contribution to the rumor mill – well, not even rumor, just baseless speculation. Remember those rumors in February 2012 about an OS X port for ARM? How about in May 2011 when the chipheads at Semi Accurate reported that Apple was contemplating a shift to ARM for its laptops, and an ARM-based MacBook Air was supposedly spotted in the wild?If Apple does indeed hold a product-announcement event on October 15, and if indeed upgraded iMacs are announced, and if indeed those announcements are followed by the introduction of a new iPad and iPad mini, possibly CEO Tim Cook will, as the event seemingly draws to a close, channel his predecessor Steve Jobs, and say those three magic words: One more thing...Could happen. After all, the chattering classes have been roundly raking Apple for a somewhat tepid iPhone 5c and 5s rollout last week, and a move from Intel to an Apple-designed ARM chip in Cook & Co.'s laptop line just might provide the stock price–boosting frisson lacking from Apple's most recent announcements.
