Misleading Headlines

When I first saw palmOne amputates handheld wireless services for its Treo 600 phones, I was fairly confused. Why “amputate” handheld wireless services for the hottest-selling Palm product?

Upon further inspection, it turns out that this is just the old news that the Palm.net service for Palm VII and i705 devices is ending. Maybe they should have said “…amputates wiress services and moves users to Treo 600 phones…”, but hey, I'm not a PR guy. At least make it not be so misleading.
