The big news this week is that Bill Gates and Steve Jobs will be sharing a stage and throttling each other talking for an hour or so. Also big news this week, Palm's attempting to re-establish their relevance by announcing a mystery device. Both are happening at Walt Mossberg's exclusive D: All Things Digital Conference. Both are big deals to us here at WMExperts, so we're heading out to San Diego for the conference. Or rather, to haunt the halls outside the conference like serfs at the king's gate, as registration for the event is four grand and press passes have been wait-listed since there were literally "serfs" hanging around kings' gates.
So expect sporadic updates (but also expect some T-Mobile Wing video fun - post questions about the device here) in the next couple of days. With any luck, we'll be able to get some surprises in here too.
Apple, Inc., CEO Steve Jobs and Microsoft Corp. Chairman Bill Gates, the seminal figures in the development of the personal computer, will make a rare joint appearance at The Wall Street Journal's "D: All Things Digital" conference this year. The two men will jointly discuss the history and future of the digital revolution in an unrehearsed, unscripted, onstage conversation on May 30 with D co-producers Walt Mossberg and Kara Swisher
