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.

I feel pretty much the same, however they should still make servers along with laser printers. HP to me is synonymous with pretty good enterprise class hardware and shitty consumer goods. If they drop the consumer arm and focus solely on mid-to-large business they will likely do better than they are right now.
