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.

[q]... and a Mac Performa 460 from the early 90s that is fully functional. It's the last Mac I'll ever own, sadly.


Why is the last?

After Apple's misuse of European patent law to try to gain an unfair monopoly there, they have joined Sony on my list of companies to boycott. I still love their OSes and hardware but I'm beginning to hate them as a company. I won't give them any more money, even indirectly.
