Breakfast briefing: Did Steve Jobs ask Palm to stop stealing Apple employees?

Today's stories from around the web: Apple boss reportedly asked for end to Palm defections | Twitter announces geo-location API | End-run Polaroid films on sale
  
  

• Lots of potential ructions after a Bloomberg report that Steve Jobs asked Palm boss Ed Colligan to stop recruiting Apple employees. The story, which appears to have come directly from Palm (which is engaged in an ongoing war with Apple) has some extra zing since it comes after the US Department of Justice said it was looking into allegations of collusion in Silicon Valley hiring (WSJ).

• Obligatory Twitter news segment: the company has said it is getting ready to launch a location API that will "allow developers to add latitude and longitude to any tweet". Privacy concerns? It'll be opt-in. Jeff Jarvis has a few thoughts.

• If, like me, you mourn the death of Polaroid instant film, you might want to get out to Urban Outfitters on Friday. Jack points me in the direction of this DazedDigital post which says they are selling Polaroid cameras and film from the last Dutch production run. Sweet.
