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.

LuneOS May Stable Release: Café mocha

Welcome to May, LuneOS fans! It’s been over 2 months since our last stable release, but don’t worry: We have been working extremely hard in bringing a lot of updates to the underlying system.

These kinds of upgrades on the lower level of our OS have significant impact and usually lead to some regressions as well. This was one of the reasons why we didn’t have a release last month and the release this month is a bit later than usual. We wanted to iron out some critical bugs first.

Check out what we’ve been up to and get to the builds!

webOS 3.0.1 Axed Due to Bizarre ‘Date Bug’

webOS has long since passed from the battleground that is the mobile operating system atmosphere. It’s been four long years since the last official webOS version, 3.0.5 for the HP Touchpad was released. However, reports are now surfacing from former HP employees about an unreleased version of webOS that was axed by then-CEO Leo Apotheker due to a bizarre bug. We’ll tell you more past the jump!
