WebOS UI Update From Abandoned Project Gets Released; Here’s What Could Have Been!

Palm’s webOS was never the hit it was intended to be, although it had some smart ideas, like the card based multitasking system.

WebOS New UI Hits the Web on Something Bigger Than a Tablet

The last time I saw WebOS in action it was running on a HP TouchPad tablet, before it got canned and had Android forcefully installed on it.

Today we’ve found a fresh leaked image from @evleaks, that seems to show the new and improved... 

HP Sells WebOS to LG Electronics, That Uses it on Smart TVs

We’ve heard for a while now that LG was going to use WebOS on its Smart TVs, but we didn’t imagine that HP was going to sell the whole thing to the South Koreans.

LG Preparing Open WebOS Smart TV for CES 2013, as Google TV Seems Forgotten

It’s been a while since we’ve heard about a major hardware company preparing a Google TV, since there aren’t probably any.

Former Palm Now Becomes Gram, New Software Company

Well, a team from Nokia that made MeeGo is now Jolla and the former Palm crew is now Gram. Just like everything in the universe, fragments of former big companies don’t die, they just transform.

WebOS may be apparently dead, but it’s not quite so, as HP evolves towards an open source webOS.
