Our look is the result of reader comments, our own experimentation, and feedback from distribution channels. Distinctive covers complement our distinctive approach to technical topics, breathing personality and life into potentially dry subjects.

The tools on the cover of Palm and Treo Hacks are a Palm and a Treo. The PalmPilot was invented in 1996 by Jeff Hawkins, Donna Dubinsky, and Ed Colligan, founders of Palm Computing. Hired to develop handwriting recognition software for a handheld device, members of the development team began to see greater possibilities.

Before long, the PalmPilot was born. Hawkins went on to oversee the licensing of the Palm OS.
