The traffic sucked all the way there but NDrive on Marc’s Pre3 got us there all the same. It took us through the city instead of around and it was a busy Saturday night so traffic was really bad.
Pi Pizza was delicious as always.
In the picture is Marc, then Gary, then Atif and I took the photo. I took the photo with my Yotaphone 2 mostly to show up the EPD screen and how it winks at you when it takes a picture but also to catalog the attendees.
Gary wanted to know all of our Palm stories. Marc’s was the shortest with only coming over to webOS and the Veer. Gary’s and Atif’s were a bit more storied and mine I think is known at least to our readers.
Marc passed around the Windsornot and a TS2. I passed around my 64GB Go and Palm branded Veer (which I was “driving” that day).
The Windsornot was of course a highlight and a low point. Atif captured the mood well in his forum post.
Marc sells a ton of Veers. He has quite the collection of Veer parts. He brought 4, “seen better days” Veers and gave them away as party gifts. Nice guy.
Gary drove from New Jersey. Atif came from New York. Marc flew to visit me from Chicago and I planned the meetup since he was going to be here. That started the whole idea anyway.
Uh, the toaster needs another clean. Let’s shake it before those crumbs are too stale or burnt!
- webOS developer, Choorp either loves twitter or is frightened of it (actually, both is probably normal). He made this based on the logo of premier webOS twitter app, Project Macaw. We salute developer, Penduin for developing an app that only gets used once a year.
- Slashgear reports that TV’s running LGwebOS 3.0 now have online payment support for shopping & in-app payments. Set those parental controls!
- TechnoBuffalo is the latest Tech blog looking wistfully back. Are we the only one looking to the future of mobile webOS?
- You want webOS merchandise? Improvise!
- Former Palm employee, Lisa Brewster demonstrates what to do if you find yourself in the wild without a toaster.
I don’t know about you, but for me, it’s time for teacakes. See you next time!

We just bought the domain, weboscenter.com and set it up to redirect to this article. webOS Center was a fairly popular blog, but new posts stopped back in 2012 except for a blip in 2014 when the first webOS TVs were released by LG. If you got here via an old bookmark or are just curious, you can see the original site on the internet archive by clicking here.

Washington, District of Columbia houses the seat of government for the United States of America. Here, many meetings take place and many momentous decisions are made. In November of this year, the citizens of these states face a momentous decision: “Will I attend the webOS meetup in Bethesda?” (Hint: Yes)
That’s right, a few short miles from the White House, Capitol and other notable sites is a branch of Pi Pizza. To be precise, it’s at 7137 Wisconsin Avenue Bethesda, MD 20814. Date: November 5th (next Saturday). Time: 6pm.
Here is the discussion thread where you can confirm your attendance.
Bring your webOS and LuneOS devices, discuss developments and the future and exchange tips on keeping your phones and tablets alive and functional.
This meet up is organised by Alan Morford. Among the devices present will be a Windsornot, TouchStone 2 and a 64GB TouchPad Go.
The team at pivotCE remind you that if you are planning a meet up, let us know! We are interested in promoting your events (it might even increase attendance!). We are also interested in reports and pictures from webOS events.
