PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless It's no secret that the webOS is no speed demon. Sure, it has the most elegant multitasking interface (the fact that it multitasks at all means it bests both Android and iOS), but it's not exactly fast. This is all going to change. Palm held its Developer Day in New York this weekend, and unveiled its new application development framework, set to replace the current Mojo framework. Not only will this new framework, named Enyo, be a lot faster than Mojo, it will also be designed around multiple display resolutions.

As such, they've been working on Enyo, a reference to a Greek goddess of war (Kratos but with boobs, basically)


I'm reasonably sure the reference is to Ares, the Greek god of war (and Enyo's sister) rather than to a video game character.

Yeah... That's what I said... The Kratos bit was a joke, obviously.

The Kratos bit was a joke, obviously.

Kratos was indeed a god and his name means power in ancient Greek (in modern Greek it means state). According to Wikipedia his siblings were Nike ("victory"), Bia ("force") and Zelus ("zeal").

That said, I am Greek and fairly interested in our mythology, yet this is the first time I hear of Enyo.
