    You can whack Meg, she easier to find. She was there and agreed with Leo, and could have saved webos if she wanted to. Now she talking about she knows hp need to be in the smartphone game someday

    The ultimate kick in the gonads would be if LG puts a Leo Apotheker wallpaper on the TV. Oh the humanity!

    webos is still my favourite mobile OS.
    I'm still using a Pre3. I have a N7 and would love to have webos on that instead of Android.
    But webos on TV is not a comeback in my book.

    I couldn't care less what variant of Linux is used to present menus and a few addon functions on a TV.
    Much of what I like best of webos won't make it to a TV (not much use for Synergy, great notifications or fluid touch guestures on a TV). To me it seems that webos is utter overkill on a TV (which is why I entertained some doubt whether that's really all that LG wants to do with webos).

    If webos on a TV would be a first stepping stone - sure I'll take that.
    If it's the only place it zombies on - then it's truly and finally dead.

    I'll wait for CES, watch the webos TV presentation and hope that it involves announcemts about further, more mobile, webos devices.

    But having the best of the mobile OS confined on the most boring and static of devices is not a comeback.

    I agree!
    I think LG agrees too!
    So why are they using webOS? I suspect it has more to do with legal ramifications of using the google android code.... But I hope I'm wrong and that LG wants webOS because they think it can bring something really good and new to televisions.

    It could also be an escape route for LG in the unlikely event that Samsung decides to go all in with Tizen. HTC has decent footing on Android with its devices and a solid alternative on Windows Phone. Motorola is obviously in Google's pocket and Nokia in Microsoft's, so that would leave LG twisting in the wind. If Samsung has any kind of success with Tizen, that would be a clear message that the public wants an alternative to Android and iOS.

    All my personal opinion here:

    I think there's plenty of use for Synergy, for Notifications on any kind of a screen. I think that you're entirely right, however, that "gestures" as we know them in classic webOS are pretty useless on a TV, though. You don't want to feel like you're playing Wii Tennis to find something to watch.

    It would seem disingenuous to expect any sort of an announcement regarding anything other than the specific products on display at CES. CES is a place where companies mostly show off what they have just arriving to the market, recently or very near future, from what I've heard, it's not a whole lot of "we're going to do such and such", it's more "here's what we've done". I could also be totally wrong about that, I've never actually been to a CES, and I'm not going to get the opportunity to be at this one, either.

    samsung has already gone with Tizen for its next gen smart tvs.

    I think LG wants to forge its own path. Google tv's efforts haven't panned out and no one wants to rely on google anyway. LG can control open webos's development efforts rather than being an also ran in the android or tizen world.
    The open nature of tizen or open webos does mean they can get outside apps and development if they drum up enough support. But they don't need 1000's of apps either so a small app market isn't a huge liability. only a few weeks left to wait! Hopefully it impresses.

    I've seen nothing to support this. But in my imagination I see a gesture based multitasking remote (similar to Pre-2/3). Maybe the built-in web subscription sites that TV's have had for years could multi-task with each other as well as with cable, web browsing, a DVR, and other inputs. Maybe cards could show on the TV at full resolution and be mirrored on the remote using WebOS swipes on the remote. And maybe this "super remote" would be an add-on option that, after an update at some point down the road could be activated as a smartphone. Maybe it could talk to your other LG appliances. Maybe much of this would have to wait until generation 2 in 2015. Nothing wrong with dreaming.

    In the end, I dont see this being any different from what has gone before it. The reasons are twofold:
    1) LG is in it for the same reason as the others - Google, Samsung, Microsoft, et al - and will go down the same beaten path of profits by any means. In the absence of a new paradigm their innovations and products will be shiny at launch, but the novelty wont last.
    2) The recent bit of controversy around the data mining and privacy/security breaches in their current Smart TVs gave a glimpse of what is to come under webOS. End users will be viewed as useless consumers while being treated as products (data, habits and even images commoditized for added profit). The difference will be that big data will have yet another platform upon which to forge ahead.

    Neither of those are reasons to cheer for webOS this time around, but #2 stands to taint and do further damage to its name. Can you imagine if, like that other platform, webOS becomes synonymous with data mining and surveillance?
