R.I.P. WebOs and goodbye HP PCs

R.I.P. WebOs and goodbye HP PCs || “HP halts WebOS business, spins off PC unit” http://ow.ly/66T8k

I don’t want to say “I told you so” but over the past several weeks I’ve posted a few pieces (here, here, and here) about what a curious decision it was for HP to acquire Palm and their questionable WebOs.  In fact, I was downright flummoxed when HP confidently declared that they would be deploying 100 million new WebOS devices into the marketplace in 2012.  I don’t want to say “I told you so” but I told you so.  At least we got a good fan-made ad out of it (there’s another clever spoof about the demise of WebOS over on Gizmodo but given the offensive nature I won’t post it here).
