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.

The real issue

I think the real issue here is the rapidly accelerating use of the Breaking: tag. Sure, this is in lowercase, but in 14 years OSnews has only used it three times: once in 2010 and now twice in the last week. Before you know it, every article will be BREAKING.

Maybe I'll look around for a TouchPad and hope someone puts Meego or Android on it...
