It's Palm again...

After being spun off from the nose diving 3Com, it was called Palm Corp., then a lot of money was spent to change the name to PalmOne.
They even contacted individuals with Palm related sites like me.

Now, according to this Cnet article, the company is dropping $30 Million to change their name back to Palm.
These days, it seems that just about every job function is being outsourced except for Marketing.
Given moves like this, I have to ask why the Hell not? Whatever is being spent on the current marketing team is pretty much being flushed anyway.
