Hardware, Embedded Systems And, of course, just as I decide to leave the live blogging to play a game of Left 4 Dead 2, HP drops the big bombshell right at the end of their press event: webOS is coming to PCs!

HP bought Palm who bought Be. Why not just bring Be back ... it would kick butt on modern hardware.

Unfortunately the remains of BeOS went to PalmSource, not Palm the hardware company. PalmSource supposedly actually used some of the BeOS internals in PalmOS 6, but Palm the hardware company didn't use it and so it died. The current home of the BeOS IP is actually Access:
