Everyone's happy with HP now!
Whew, after much confusion as to what HP was thinking and what would happen to HP Fansite if they did, and a sprinkle of hope when they swapped out CEO’s, the verdict is in this week. According to HP’s new CEO Meg Whitman, they’ve looked at the idea of spinning PSG (HP’s computer division, essentially) off, but have decided against it, saying it was the right thing to do for just about […]
Everyone's happy with HP now!
Well, we’re decidedly alive and kicking once again, with HP seemingly upbeat about their computer division (PSG) by being the sponsor/partner of several popular TV shows that kicked their new seasons off earlier this month/late September. In particular, I’ve spotted quite a number of HP products (including the now-dead HP TouchPad) being used by various characters in several CWTV shows (anyone care to take a guess?) but more on that later. […]
Well, maybe all is not lost after all… HP has just appointed eBay’s ex-CEO, Meg Whitman, as their new CEO; removing Leo Apotheker from the driver’s seat. Maybe HP will now rethink that move to split off their PC making division and we might still see new Pavilions and EliteBooks in 2012 and beyond. While that’s nice and really makes my day at least, I still don’t think she (HP’s new CEO) will bring back WebOS from the dead… […]
It’s funny (in a sad way) how the future can be so drastically affected by the past. Yesterday’s incident of the demise of webOS and HP’s mobile division did not come as a surprise to me (though the announcement of the potential consideration of breaking off their PC division did) because it almost took the “cause and effects” right out of my mouth in an article I wrote 16 months ago here on HP Fansite.
Back then, HP was pretty […]
Just face the facts everyone: WebOS is pretty much dead. There’s been a lot of chatter on the net in the last 24 hours about the fate and future potential of WebOS. And though you’ll probably hate me for saying it, I hate to break it to you but it’s time for a wake up call to face the facts (and reality): Palm and WebOS are dead. Period. And I’m not saying because I’m trolling, I’m not saying it because […]
There may be plenty of tossing and turning on HP’s part today which may change the computer industry (it already changed the smartphone/mobile field with the loss of one beloved mobile OS today. WebOS rest in peace, you will be missed). In today’s ever changing landscape, one thing frequently leads or affects another, and people are forced to adapt or risk extinction.
It is sad to face the possibility that our love and intense coverage of HP computers and smartphones […]
HP abandons WebOS, feels like moving away from computers to software; HPFansite’s future now at stake
A massive earthquake (figuratively) occurred at HP today and there’s a ton of news and changes that might just change EVERYTHING (in a not so good way). First off, the biggest chunk of news that’s bound to disappoint many WebOS fans: HP will quote “discontinue operations for WebOS devices, specifically the TouchPad and WebOS phones“, which in English means they’re effectively going to kill (or already have?) the Palm legacy and WebOS. No more WebOS smartphones or […]
Upcoming 2011 HP TouchSmart (Photo by Engadget.com)
Well, it’s no TouchSmart tm2 or tm3 convertible tablet, but tech blog Engadget has gotten a picture (a rather pixelated one at that) of HP’s next TouchSmart all-in-one desktop. It appears that the TouchSmart all-in-one design will be finally get an evolution to something with more metal accents (note the stand at the bottom) as well as sleeker in profile. We haven’t gotten any specific details about HP’s next-generation […]
