Open webOS 1.0 Released

Open webOS 1.0 Edition

But @stroughtonsmith points out that is still running on top of Ubuntu, so it’s not like us mere mortals — those of us who love webOS, who want to use webOS — can use it.

If it took HP using engineers several days to get that running, what hope is there for us regular non-engineer users?

And although the Gram logo now appears in the upper right corner of the Open webOS Blog, the site is still nothing but a logo.

How much longer do we have to wait for a package that we can use?

Meanwhile, Mozilla continues ahead with its web-friendly OS.

Does Gram intend to mishandle Open webOS like Palm mishandled its original Palm OS?

Get the hell real finally. We need a package we can put on an x86 or ARM tablet as soon as possible.

And yes, I see multimedia isn’t ready. But I can do without that for many things.

Get Open webOS into the hands of us users so we can rave about it to others!

Same-day update: There’s now a new Open webOS Project website too.

Forbrydelsen III Sneak Peek And Free Stream!

Wow! Incredibly, the TV network in Denmark allows people outside of Denmark to stream Forbrydelsen III! See it here. There are no English subtitles, so that’s for hardcore people like me who can’t wait and just want to see it, period.

Updates: Forbrydelsen III Now Geo-Restricted and Forbrydelsen III Frustration. I have not found a (free) way around the block. Most people say to pay a fee to use a VPN.

Second update: Forbrydelsen III Not Geo-Blocked

I have some screensnaps and minor spoilers.
