So the catalog is dead. Oh well. Finding random ipks online, whether they be in a shared directory somewhere or from a friend hooking you up can be frustrating. Getting apps for webOS devices is left to the back alley ways of the darkest recesses of private forum messaging and dropbox links. I don’t care how you get them. I won’t judge.
Yes, the Chicago webOS meetup remains a calendar fixture and it’s happening on this coming Sunday, 22nd November, 7pm at Moretti’s Ristorante and Pizzeria, Schamburg.

Munching on the last crust here, but everything tastes good with marmalade. It’s been a while since the last round up, so before I head to the bakery for supplies, lets clean out some crumbs!

- Tomomi Imura, a former developer relations engineer at Palm, now working for Pubnub, showed off a cat facial recognition system on Leo LaPorte’s Screen Savers web show. The segment begins at one hour in, includes some discussion of her time at Palm and lasts about 12 minutes.
- In the previous Newscrumbs, we mentioned that Josh Marinacci, former Developer Advocate for webOS at Palm, was looking for work. Good news! He has joined Ms Imura at Pubnub: The Hubbub About PubNub

That’s it for now. Don’t forget to donate to pivotCE so we can keep the article machine fueled.
You can’t win them all, folks! We won’t have a November stable release of LuneOS because we’ve always been about quality and not forcing made-up timelines to satisfy feelings.
BUT we do have nightlies still coming. The latest of which are available for Grouper (Nexus 7), Maguro (Galaxy Nexus), Mako (Nexus 4), emulator, and Tenderloin (HP TouchPad). Don’t forget the latest uImage for TouchPad.
So what’s new? First off, we have a new supported device! Well, ok so it’s an old supported device that has been brought back to life. The Galaxy Nexus! Also, the RaspBerry Pi 2 port will be most likely an official target shortly. We just need to work out logistics on our build server. More to come there.
