Many people already hate celebrities because of their fabulous wealth and good looks, but now you can add another peeve to the list – at least if you’re a Palm buff. Angelina Jolie been spotted with a pre-release Palm Pré. A production assistant reportedly saw the luscious lipped Jolia carrying and using the phone while on the …
Pics or it didn't happen.

Anyone else get wound up, that you no longer have to have the best product, and that if you create hype/image you can sell infinitely more of your crap product than actually making a good product and relying on it's technical merits.
The morons buying Blackberrys/iPhones/Xboxes and now Palm Pre, they really don't know anything about them before they buy them (or in this case given them to walk around with in public to fuel the hype).
What a sad iSheep society we have become...
Sometimes I can see the arguement for banning comments on el reg... I'm assuming you are the one with the *insert spec-heavy-but-barely-unusable phone model* in the pocket?? Moron indeed.
Just criticise the PS3, Nokia N96, Linux and Windows XP / Vista and you'll have a full house for a flame war. There is no such thing as "the best product" - what is the "best" car ?
If I'm a sheep, you're a Lemming.
