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.

Palm was cool (until HP gobbled them up like Compaq).

I for one am happy to see HP spinning off their PC business, wish they could do the same for Palm.

HP should have just stuck to laser printers, not ink jets, not computers, not servers, just great LaserJet printers.
