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!

Not to mention the fact that JS (compiled or not) will never out perform Objective C / .NET


Android apps are Java based, not JS (javascript) based.

Java apps are compiled, not interpreted. The loss of speed is from JVM - the virtual machine which runs the interpreted code. .NET is also compiled and runs also in a virtual machine.

Speed wise, I saw C and C++ apps running faster than Objective C.
