If you cannot be #1 #2 or #3 in an industry then you shouldn't be in it unless you have a secure niche (making military grade stuff for example), or a good chance of displacing one of the top guys. IMHO after the dust settles it will be Android, then iOS followed by a Windows OS and no profitable place for a 4th or 5th OS.

Taking a page from Mr. Phil McKinney's playbook, after re-strategizing HP,, one should allow Meg Whitman not to become a prey for the Rule of 18! But I see what @Fidolido is saying -HP could become a worthy competitor to a post-Jobs Apple! MP Divakar

If HP decides to abandon WebOS, opening it up to the OpenSource community may not be a bad idea.

I'm not a CEO and I don't know what the future holds down the line in terms of profits... but I think in the long run, it could be worth the time and effort. a competitor to Apple.

If they can develop WebOS to be more Linux based, it would allow a larger following and more compatibility. The system is fast, and easier to use, and battery life for the current units is great. as a tablet, it could use some refining but as a competitor, it's a tiger. I wouldn't mind a better browser for the current WebOS but for what it's currently worth, it does what I need.... I like the fact that the most popular game out there has been ported to the WebOS platform.... Angry Birds.... lol

Zaphod42 was right, Whitman gave herself until early December to decide what to do with WebOS...So sound off: What do you think she should do?

I checked around and you are right. Whitman gave herself until early December to decide what to do with WebOS. I updated the story.

Likely dead, based on what? Even if that were obvious, it shouldn't be reported as fact. There has been enough misinformation thrown around concerning this issue. hp killed webOS hardware, and the software decision is forthcoming. It could still be sold, licensed, spun (doubtful), or fed to the open source community (double-doubtful). BTW - The 4-week deadline that Meg set is actually 12/6, I believe, so it could be another week.

The writer is correct. WebOS is likely dead. The board and ceo of HP have marginalized webOS to the point that financially it would be very expensive to resorect it and HP's board has already shown that it was unwilling to make the financial or long term commitment to make webOS successful.

LATEST ARCHIVED BROADCAST

What are the engineering and design challenges in creating successful IoT devices? These devices are usually small, resource-constrained electronics designed to sense, collect, send, and/or interpret data. Some of the devices need to be smart enough to act upon data in real time, 24/7. Specifically the guests will discuss sensors, security, and lessons from IoT deployments.
