Got my keyboard folio for the nexus 9 today. Nice. I like it. If you just start typing at a home screen it automatically treats it as a search, just like "just type" did. The running programs is a vertical scroll of all the apps, webos was horizontal. Mind you this is not a criticism of android, after all many of the webos folks went to work at android after HP committed suicide live and on-line.

Webos had its faults, but it also quit more than, what, four years ago? Think of where it could have been in 2014 had sane people operated the company. If only .... if only! I still have my touchpad running CM11 (4.4.4) and its still passable sitting around the desk. Not my daily driver, but still useful. Apple is now advertising how you can answer your phone on your tablet, I did that on my touchpad in 2010.

Sigh.

WebOS definitely had its good points, and it's a shame that HP totally messed up the marketing. But at least some of it lives on with this kind of influence!
