    Move over, HP.

    Or...

    Come on, Derek.
    You're not even protesting.
    Have you been possessed?

    Or...

    Even my TouchPad
    Has room for a link on top.
    Why not put one there?
    Just thought I'd return to my old standby.
    For the record, I posted a haiku about HP not releasing Open WebOS for their existing devices the day before a contest for writing haikus about HP not releasing WebOS for their existing devices was put on the blog. Coincidence? I think not.

    We still love webOS, but in the grand scheme, webOS Nation no longer compares with iMore, Android Central, CrackBerry, or even Windows Phone Central (aye...). It's been two years since the last update to webOS and the last webOS hardware, and while the LG crew is working on a TV, Phoenix is working on their stuff, and WebOS Ports is doing their ports, it's just not enough to justify putting webOS on the same level as widely-used operating systems anymore.'

    And yes, webOS Nation isn't in the header now. Talk Mobile is. Big whoop. It's not like anybody's going to click on that link from one of the other sites and thing, "You know what, I'm going to switch to webOS". Those of us on webOS still are dedicated and here by choice. It's not a matter of whim. The presence of webOS Nation in the header isn't going to change any of that.

    Me, I blame HP.
    I don't. It was Apotheker's fault. HP was just an innocent instrument used to play webOS's final movement

    Hey, look we are part of MobileNations, you just have to go to the main site....waits where is Derek

    capture7.PNG
    So we are not part of a mobile community...?

    Capture8.PNG
    No Contributers or an Editor...hmmmm

    So we don't have a Contributer or an Editor, Not a Community of MobileNations, Clearly not welcome on the the top bar other then the main site (which no one uses) ....... So is there special tax benefits to keeping webOSNations "on the book"? are you pulling an HP on use?

    I imagine that webOS would have a larger market share than BB and WP by now. You know because they were doing poorly recently

    However you're not yet removed from the Passport bar. Which confuses me, given you've been removed from the header and footer.

    Protest what? Giving up a link to the least-trafficked Mobile Nations site for our new big and exciting project? As you can see by your very posting in this forum, the site hasn't been shut down.

    Don't be ridiculous, it's 2013. webOS isn't mentioned in the same breath as Android, iOS, BlackBerry, and Windows Phone anymore.

    Also, that whole "special tax benefits" business with regards to HP and webOS was a bunch of malarkey. I couldn't find a single independent corporate finance professional who could explain that rumor.

    Surely you must be joking. BlackBerry and Windows Phone sell more devices in a quarter than webOS ever did.

    It will remain in the Passport pop-up, since post will still count towards your global count.

    Whoa! How did I even get here...Oh wait, I just clicked on the same bookmark I've been using for 3 or 4 years.

    I just appreciate that I have somewhere to go to ask questions. Thanks for keeping the forum up and running.

    Saying webOS is 'dead' is quite the over-statement. Even if LG shelves it, webOS is now Open Source and will always be alive as long as it has a fan base. Just because it isn't adopted for current phones by companies certainly doesn't mean it is "dead". Why is it that it's always Android users who have an all-or-nothing opinion about other OS's.
