Palm's Pixie flitters into view past Castle


Hacksters at PreCentral have found some shell script that points to future Palm phones called “castle” and “pixie.” We well know that the Pixie will be the EOS and the Castle is the codename for the Pre.

# Start novacomd service
if [[ “$hostName” == “castle” ]];then
modprobe g_composite product=0x8002
elif [[ “$hostName” == “pixie” ]];then
modprobe g_composite product=0x8012
modprobe -q g_composite

Huge deal? Absolutely not. But it’s fun to know bash scripting, ain’t it?
