I always wondered what HP was thinking when it purchased Palm just to get webOS in the first place. Palm had smartphones on the OS that didn’t sell well to begin with and HP thought its name would turn that around apparently. HP tried smartphones of its own and the much-maligned TouchPad all with webOS and failed all around.
HP has also been talking about webOS in printers, which I think is a worse idea than trying to use the OS in tablets. With all those failures against webOS, HP still tried to sell it off for the same $1.2 billion that it coughed up to buy Palm. This explains why HP still has webOS.
To make the insane price for a multiple times failed OS; HP still wanted access to webOS for its printer plans. Sources even say that HP tried to sell webOS to Facebook in a big meeting with the Zuck there and were all but laughed out of the room.

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.
The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
