So! HP just announced they're not making any more webOS devices. Maybe webOS will be licensed, maybe not. Signs from inside indicate webOS isn't dead and might be licensed out to other hardware manufacturers, but clearly no such deal is in place yet.

I am: sad (and not sure what to get for my next phone - had my Sprint Pre for over two years and it's not gonna last too much longer), but hopeful that webOS isn't going away for good. I'll probably take a few days off, try not to read too much news, and come back and decide how much effort to spend developing apps. I still enjoy writing apps, and enjoy using them myself, so I'll keep doing that at least...

I saw that and thought of you! :-( How sad.

Comment from gregstoll:

Thanks! Yeah, I got Facebook'd, google plus'd, and emailed about the news from various people.

Comment from medryn:

Time to learn Android programming? :-) It's a bigger market to sell to!

Comment from gregstoll:

True, but...I dunno. Probably gonna wait a bit and see. Android just isn't that exciting to me. Plus there are a lot of apps already, so I'd have to be more creative about what apps to write...

Comment from andrewhime:

It's just to random and retarded. Completely nonsensical.
