    I was excited about the product moths ago when the kick starter campaign was running but, it seems to have completely evaporated. Was it all just hot air?

    This goes back a looooooooong way. Back past promises to the webOS community. Back to OpenMobileWorldWide's formation in 2010 when they started saying lots and lots and lots about how they are the cat's meow, yet they have never really produced much of anything: demos, mostly, to try and lure in OEM $$,$$$,$$$.$$.

    For the latest installment you won't have to go back that far. Just a couple of weeks. Start here and read forward: PIC Kick Starts the TouchPad with Open Mobile ACL

    Will OMWW solve their latest dillema? Will their first ever public release reemerge? Will they bray loudly at CES 2014 about how they singlehandedly saved webOS by providing ACL for TouchPad?

    Given their track record, the first two are looking doubtful. However, given their track record - even if the first two questions come up "NO," they will indeed accomplish the third and bray as loudly as they can: filling the air with their noxious donkey breath, laced with over-inflated claims and outright fabrications that they will excuse under the guise of marketing hyperbole.

    This is a small company that, IMHO, does not realize the shallowness of their talent pool, yet makes the claims of a huge corporation awash in world class talent. Their can do bravado (often taking the erroneous tense of "have done") has no basis in any reality that the general public can point to.
