    Editorial: Engadget on the death of HP's webOS devices -- Engadget

    WebOS, where did things go wrong? One moment you're worth a "double-down" investment by HP valued at $1.2 billion, and the OS of choice for future tablets, computers and even printers; the next, you're discarded like yesterday's crusty old oatmeal. Today, HP announced -- among other things -- that it's chosen to discontinue operations for its webOS lineup, and that the company "will continue to explore options to optimize the value of webOS software going forward." So what does this all mean for the future of webOS? Have we seen the last of webOS? Join us past the break for our thoughts.

    I've started to take this tack: folks like me who've owned Palm devices for years have been through this before. What the Palm ethic has been is user-friendly and useful devices. When a company executes this badly, Palm eventually reappears.

    Kinda like seeing this unfold for like the umpteenth time. HP spins of PSG, somebody licenses webOS, we get a new crop of good devices.
