    I didn't realize the "personalized content delivery" part of HP delivers 27% of its profit.

    Does this below, an excerpt from Forbes article about HP Printing divison, sound like webOS?

    "...And then VJ paints a picture of a whole back-end, cloud-based system that supports his vision of the coming role imaging and printing will play...
    Both the family at home and the bureau customer can use simple Web-based software that helps them select, edit, arrange, and format their photo output. And this software is getting increasingly sophisticated. Once the user uploads his or her photos to the program, it makes intelligent decisions about how to put together the show or album. For example, software still in the lab but already quite robust figures out where “dead spots” or less interesting zones are in photos and places inset photos in these areas rather than over key details of interest, making a good pass at picture-in-picture combinations. It also knows about candidates for stitchable panoramas and stitches them together automatically. It is aware of proportional color schemes and so groups together pictures likely to make up a sequence. It chooses from among nearly duplicate pictures the one with the sharpest focus and leaves out the others.

    This software, which HP says is coming to market soon, does 80% of the work involved in composing a photo album, but has simple tools that allow the user to tweak an already credible effort, making it more personal or adjusting for subtleties that the program can’t detect (e.g., my mother and father are divorced and would never want to be seen on the same page).

    While managing a photo album might sound a bit trivial, similar technology lives on the industrial side. HP is working with multiple partners and enterprise customers to route workflows (e.g., mortgage applications or insurance claims) “from atoms to bits and back to atoms again,” as VJ describes it; that is, from the physical world of filled out forms to the digital world of quick processing and back again to letters, policy forms, and final documents..."

    Not at all. They're describing image editing software.
