Hardware, Embedded Systems And, of course, just as I decide to leave the live blogging to play a game of Left 4 Dead 2, HP drops the big bombshell right at the end of their press event: webOS is coming to PCs!

I would love to have been a fly on the wall back in the Carly Fiorina days during the HP/Apple negotiations. So much is influx. Windows needs something lightweight (and secure) and the Mac needs something that is better than casual gaming as an iOS hook. - Sony has had some good ideas, and lately so has HP but what to do if you are going to be second to market or have to wait for the Cupertino Juggernaut to make a mistake and *pray* that you can capitalize on this?
I have seen many good things this past 6 weeks, but what if apple's app store actually makes money (more than it does) when one twelfth or one tenth of the users are on on hackintoshes. No that is not 2011 but why not in three or five years. What if I take TCL/Tk app and redo it in GNORM (the NeXTStep environment for Linux)? What is an app other than an executable and the view?
Soon just like we can skin a phone or a laptop or an OS soon we will skin an app in XAML and then who fails? Apple is the good Unix.
