Hardware, Embedded Systems Major bombshell, and sorry, but this certainly requires a breaking tag as well: HP has announced it is discontinuing operations for webOS devices - effective immediately. Just like that... The TouchPad and Pre 3 are dead. Eh. Raise your hands if this brings back those painful memories of that infamous 'Focus Shift'. In addition, the company also announced its intention to sell its personal computer business.

HP struck out twice this year with the Veer and TP. After dismal responses, they called their launches "soft-launces" after the fact. Over on precentral, threads against HP quickly get consolidated and eventually put out to pasture so you go there and think there are a lot of happy users, but that is not the case. The WebOS loyal were all being stressed out but the lies by HP kept us at bay.
