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.

I always liked the WebOS architecture. We never really built anything for it because there was no market but it's sad to see it go.

I hope they open source it. It would give it a second life.

If not, I think Windows 8 and Metro might be the spiritual successor to WebOS.
