    Any idea if these apps are going to be updated to match the features of the Palm (Pimp) Pre? Or are they going to wait for Apple to do that themselves?

    The universal search activates just by typing, and searches through your apps, contacts and email while Quickgold clumsily just does apps, and multitasking through various apps at the same time makes using Backgrounder to keep a single app running in the background without interaction seem silly.

    In short, who would you bet on to start matching/ exceeding the Palm Pre's webOS: the Jailbreaking community or Apple's firmware devs?

    Actually, QuickGold does apps, contacts, web bookmarks, web history, web clips, and text messages. Plus you can call people straight from the app. And it's not clumsy at all.
