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.

Are the people running this business complete morons?

Apparently so, as I saw this one coming a mile away. I knew the Touchpad was doomed before it ever launched. Same with the Playbook.

So, let this be a lesson, kids... doesn't matter how slick the OS is. You need those high-profile apps to go along with it.
