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.

Spent two days trying to get a touchpad. Never could get the web page to load and every touchpad was sold out in 500 miles by noon.

Some people think it was well worth the price to do that.

Yup. Me too. Local staples said they sold out within 5 minutes of opening their doors, not to mention a brutal fight trying to get through the HP website only to find out the hard way they were already gone.
