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.

If the WebOS platform cease to be developed, I hope HP will have the decency to open the bootloaders of their devices and provide open source drivers. I am confident the smartphone dev community will take care of porting Android or whatnot on it to extend the life of the devices.
