BACKHANDED BY PALM
Because Other Drew doesn’t have a blog of his own… and because I have nothing else to post today… and because this MUST be seen, the following is an actual email that Other Drew received from Palm technical support.
Not that it matters, but the email inquiry Other Drew sent Palm tech support that invited this response was perfectly normal and polite…

I mean, can you believe that? “On-going” does not need to be hyphenated. Nothing bothers me more than a poorly-punctuated email.
Also, Other Drew is not a ratass.
After phoning Palm and requesting an alternative solution to the problem with his Palm than eating it (which most likely wouldn’t have helped), Other Drew received an apology and was told that the matter had been dealt with.
I’m guessing Leah no longer works there.
