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.

Member since:

I don't know the exact specifics, but once I got an old Compaq pc, and once I tried to install Linux on it (when booting the cd/booting for the first time, I don't remember) I got a BIOS error saying I should contact Compaq in order to run UNIX on the system.
