WebOS Lives!

For months now there have been rumors that WebOS may be tossed to the way side like it's host tablet the HP Touchpad. However, that rumor has been laid to rest and it appears as if the best possible scenario, given the situation, has happened: HP has decided to open-source WebOS and make it available to developers to invest back in the project. This is good news indeed for the WebOS community.

Here is an excerpt from their blog:
Well, you’ve been waiting for the big webOS announcement, and today we’ve made it. This morning, HP announced that webOS will be going open source with the resources of HP behind it. The Developer Relations team is very excited by this announcement and what it means for the future of webOS, and for you, our developer community.

With this announcement, Meg Whitman has reiterated HP’s commitment to webOS as a cloud-connected, scalable platform, while opening up new possibilities for platform expansion and improvement. She has also committed HP to a course of continued improvement to webOS, which means we’re in it for the long haul. Finally, we are committed to good, transparent and inclusive governance to avoid fragmentation of the platform.

As an aside, I would have never given webOS a chance had it not have been for the firesale that afforded me the opportunity to test out my first tablet. I believe WebOS has many a good qualities, namely multitasking, cards, notifications, the homebrew community... Android and iOS could learn a few things from their neglected sibling.

Riley's Corner

This week's question on Riley's Corner is a doozy. The question is: if the Motion Picture Association of America had to choose one movie to keep in existence, and the other is lost forever, which one will you choose? Dumb and Dumber or Ace Ventura Pet Detective.

A dozen minor children and the responsibility that comes with having children lies elsewhere?

One sad thing about this is that the children love their mother and are now separated from the only person they have known as their mother. Regardless of her state or the way she has raised them, she is still their mother and they will still love her and be hurt by this ongoing process.

I pray that God would give these children hope and a better future regardless of their past and the circus that surrounds them. Perhaps this will give the mother an opportunity to make some changes in her life that will help to reform her mindset on entitlement.
