Great googly—-moogly this week has been one hell of a ride. What with Google announcing plans to buy Motorola Mobility, and now with HP announcing that they’re exiting the PC business and killing off their WebOS hardware. While I can’t say I’ll shed a tear for the PC hardware, I am a bit saddened by the apparent death of WebOS. For one thing, I honestly believe that there should be a decent competitor to iOS in the market. In my mind WebOS was the best suited to take that role. Secondly, I have always had a soft spot for the erstwhile Palm OS. I was an early adopter of Palm handhelds, and I used a Palm device until the day I bought my first iPhone.
I’m going to have to dig out my old Tungsten T3 and have a drink with it.
