In an exhibit titled the Interface Experience held at The Bard Graduate Center in New York, you can see a collection of some of the biggest monuments of culture-defining technology from the last 40 years. Among the gadgets are a Commodore 64, Xerox Alto, Macintosh Plus, and my personal favorite the Palm Pilot circa 1997.
You may have noticed that Whatsapp have been messing about lately and webOS is affected. Here is Andre Garzia again: WhatsApp doesn’t understand the web. There seems to be some good news. Although amoralico, the developer of the webOS client will no longer be developing it, he has released the latest code to the community and there is an open-source client on another platform that works. Comparing code and updating MojoWhatsup should be possible. Of course, other messaging services exist and Whatsapp may have damaged themselves with their recent moves.
There is some background on the webOS watch excitement from The Wall Street Journal. It seems the plan is to slowly build the eco-system. After the webOS watch, the software on home appliances (toaster?!) is also a possibility. Sadly LG seems to believe that on phones, “everyone expects Android”, so there may be a long wait for that product.
