I’ve written up my Day One impressions of the UK version of the Palm Pre, along with a tongue-in-cheek description of the PR back-story, in my debut column — working title: Gadgets and canapés — for Ewan MacLeod’s Mobile Industry Review (MIR).
Late last night I looked down at my unibody Macbook’s keyboard and, shock-horror, the zero key had melted!

Palm have made a number of announcements after listening to feedback from the community, the biggest of which is that developers will be able to ’self-sign’ their apps and distribute them via the Web, and in doing so, bypass any formal approval process.
The upcoming version of the latest Flash developer tools – Adobe Flash Professional CS5 – will offer Flash developers a way to output their finished creations as a native app for iPhone and iPod touch.

The newly released WD TV Live HD adds an Ethernet port and support for YouTube and Flickr, Internet radio from Live365 and Pandora, along with content stored on a Windows PC or Mac on the same local network.
Like many British acts, UK-based music download service 7digital is hoping to conquer America.

That’s a wrap. Thanks for reading,
