Hey, Todd Bradley!
What kind of a man are you?
I know it was HP’s Humphries who made the statement that the company intended to “double down” on webOS, but let’s all be frank here:
- You once headed Palm and had contacts there
- You planted the webOS bug in HP’s ear
- You convinced HP to make this move, because
- You saw yourself remaking HP, and
- You saw yourself leading a new HP
Was looking at images I have, came across these and decided to run them instead of continuing to scream about all this on Twitter.
Harry Potter is going to further destroy Sony.
As I stated from the beginning, Sony’s sponsorship of the Pottermore site came with the contingency that Sony had an opening exclusive for the Harry Potter books.
Now everyone has had to agree — although Rowling’s representatives claim this is not true.
I’ll call Rowling’s bluff.
Sony didn’t pony up a lot of money just to stand next to her and Harry Potter.
What no one has yet thought about is how this can all be a gigantic disaster with worse PR fallout that the HP TouchPad fiasco.
In a rambling, unstructured post that reads as if it was done quickly in order to capitalize on the news, TNW spouts the ridiculous HP bullshit that webOS lives.
Samsung and HTC are mentioned as lifeline hopefuls for licensing the OS, with claims that HP has no intent to kill the OS or sell it.
