    Pst ... let me tell you a secret - but don't tell anybody else ...

    This is just a baseless unconfirmed rumor - there is 0 evidence that Amazon is interested - much less in negotiatons - to buy webos.

    Not happening. Makes no sense.

    rumor? You mean amazon has said nothing about buying it and its just the predictors? That makes me lose hope

    Go into Settings/Text Assist and turn auto-correction off.

    Hopefully it won't be Amazon as they will lock it tighter than a drum like they are doing with the Amazon Fire Tablet. Forked android os, NO android market, Amazon apps only, and everything totally tied to Amazon period. I won't by Apple because of this, and I also wouldn't buy Fire. I only buy tech that can be used with everything, and not totally tied to the MFG.

    If Amazon buys it, it'll be successful, be in users hands, and will get dev support. At its current rate, it'll be the best OS nobody will ever use.

    I'll take B. At least I get to keep its amazing user interface and usability. Amazon is one of the few players who could add value added services and give it something to differentiate itself, something almost nobody else can guarantee.

    Keep amazon as far away from WebOS in my opinion. I'd rather have it die then fall into the hands of Amazon. I say this as an owner of 6 TPs, 2 Pre3s, Pre2, and a Pre-.

    I don't have to worry much because there is really no reason in the world Amazon would ever buy the WebOS assets, Amazon cares about selling e-books and streaming video and selling music, none of which require WebOS. They already support other platforms for many of their services, if someone wants to use an iPad to read kindle books amazon doesn't care, if they want to use their Tivo to stream amazon video amazon doesn't care.

    The kindle was crap at music and video so they introduced their new platforms which can leverage that content more effectively.

    Amazon doesn't care about the user experience as in evident in most of the services they provide(ever used their cloud? what a piece of crap). WebOS is about a premium user experience (whether or not it gets it right is another matter). Out of amazon's league.
