Oracle and SUN Now that Hewlett-Packard appears to be a little tipsy, not really knowing where it is and what it's doing, Reuters is reporting that the company is working on selling its webOS operating system. HP acquired webOS as part of its purchase of Palm, made a big fuss about the whole thing, and then let it fizzle out. The company rumoured buy webOS? Oracle.

Oracle WebOS

This sounds like a joke xD

I mean, there is nothing what oracle can do with webOS beside taking the Patents.

I mean, they will never create an Tablet with it or invest something in this segment - Entertainment and so on.
And open sourcing it? No way.

Then Intel is a much better candidate for this.

Of course. One more gun to shot Android and who knows what else.

This is the way how the big corporations deal with innovation, in the present days. An arsenal of weapons to protect their dated tech offerings.
