I know the hot apps contest was put out to try and motivate devs to work on webos, which I have nothing against, but I feel like it would have been a better use of a million large to just pay developers to make apps for webos. It would be so simple and straight to the point.

Is this someting they aren't allowed to do because I think it makes quite a bit of sense for them to do this. They coulda plugged up some big holes in the app cat with something like this.
