On the second day of webOS-mas,
My true love gave to me,
Two printing methods,
And webOS quick install.

Just recently revealed, John Steffes showed us how to bring parts of the Touchpad system to a phone, while Masterhit installed the CUPS printing system. It takes some work, but now the gift HP never gave, wireless printing from your phone, has been given twice over! Thanks guys!

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year from pivotCE!

2013 is almost over and what a year for webOS it has been!  Ok, so it’s been pretty sleepy around here, but there are many things that webOS users have been “given” over the years that we are certainly still using.  In fact, these things are what make being a webOS user still fun, easy, and relevant today.  So, for the next 12 days…let’s call it the “12 Days of webOS-mas”…we’ll be paying homage to 12 of the most important technologies, apps, utilities, and functions of webOS.  The first one comes tomorrow so after you wake up from your “afternoon-gift-coma-nap” head on over and check it out.

LG will show webOS TVs at CES 2014

Do you remember webOS Nation’s sad video from CES 2013 where they tried to find webOS stuff?  Well, it looks like we won’t be disappointed again this year.

Up til now we’ve only seen screenshots and heard rumors.  But LG researcher Hong Sung-pyo confirmed the presentation of their new webOS TV set at CES 2014 in Las Vegas!

With a purported 2.2 GHz dual-core processor and 1.5 GB of RAM this will be the highest spec hardware webOS has ever officially run on.  We will see how much LG customized the interface.  According to rumors from the beginning of the year they revamped it completely.

A GAMECHANGER.

That’s what LG called webOS together with their Smart TVs.  I’m very exited what this means for webOS, Enyo, and especially for our current devices.  Will the TVs use the current App Catalog?  It would be great if developers (re)start creating new apps.  I can’t wait to see what LG is preparing.  What do you think?
