Homebrew Hello World comes to Palm Pre

At Engadget:
The first application puts a stake in the ground by displaying a simple "hello world" on the screen. Unfortunately, the code overwrote the pre-installed Sprint Nascar application... oh wait, that's probably a good thing.

    Re: “Launch camera application, dick!!”

    Whereas, “Turn on vibration motor [dick]” … that would be a Good Thing, yes?

    Now, “Turn on and leave on flash” is … a flashlight. And that is definitely a Good Thing!

    I especially like that the resolution of the photo makes it look like the phone is calling us names.

    “Launch camera application, dick!!”

    Well, fine, if that’s how you’re going to be!
