Report: Bethesda Meetup

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.

webOS Center: Gone, but not forgotten

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.

HP is to Palm as Lenovo is to Motorola…Not Good

Motorola-SPICE-Android-Phone-looks-just-like-the-Palm-Pre1Remember the confusion about what Palm was meant to be and do for HP? I know you do. I’ll spare you the recap.

The Verge has the story today on the similarities between HP/Palm and Lenovo/Motorola. Feel free to cringe along with me and read their story.

Summary: Lenovo is repeating HP’s mistake with their ownership of Motorola.

To those Motorola die-hard fans out there, I’m so, so sorry. I feel your pain.

RIP Motorola (soon)
