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.

HP wont re-evaluate anything unless the current CEO loser-Leo is ousted in the next 2 weeks or something. HP wants to drop all their consumer hardware (except printers, I guess) including their entire PSG group (of which WebOS devices are under).
