Being kept in the dark, with no official statements being made, i personally am starting to wonder whether it would make more sense to make a back up of my Touchpad and start logging (and later reverse-engineering) the Palm Profile sync traffic.
I can't say i'm qualified or have any experience in this particular area, but it's starting to look like a "now or never" situation. HP doesn't inspire confidence, and time obviously keeps ticking.
So my goal is to find out what a "blank" profile looks like, for each OS version (1.4, 2.x, 3.0.5) and be able to recreate the basic communication sequence, with my laptop acting as a proxy.
I'm not trying to be everybody's hero or anything, i'm just feeling a bit pessimistic at this point.
In the past, i've had thoughts about using an existing Palm Profile to host a ported Open webOS device, unofficially and maybe against license (but who would know or care?). Now, what if that it may be the other way around, we may end up having to re-create the cloud services for our original Palm devices to continue using them? Who knows.... but it may be easier to do this now than after the services presumably go dark...
