The webOS Layoffs Begin

HP Cutting 500 Jobs at webOS Division‎ (Updated)

This is happening almost as I stated:

Within a month, I expect the entire webOS team to be pinkslipped. There is no valid reason to continue that expense. It’s worth more as a total Palm patent portfolio.

That was written on August 18th. Here we are on September 20th.

I don’t think Palm had a staggering five hundred people assigned just to hardware. Some software people must be included in that.

More will be let go thirty days from now.

I thought Google+ was a disaster. What HP did to webOS is just about unprecedented.
