LG has just unveiled its latest Smart InstaView Refrigerator powered by Alexa and webOS featuring transparent touchscreen. Here's everything you need to know about it.
Hewlett-Packard disappointed many with its impromptu decision to ditch webOS, but as many others who got the opportunity to use it will vouch, it's a very useful operating system. It's clean, functions nicely, and as such, it should come as no surprise that some folks are trying to resuscitate it with the Open webOS project. Having already made its way to the Google-branded Samsung Galaxy Nexus, the webOS team has now managed to port it to the Nexus 7 tablet, and although it's not as smooth as one may have hoped, there are a lot of positives - notably the full functionality of the Wi-Fi and browser.
It has been an interesting few weeks and months for webOS, the mobile operating system that technology giant HP picked up as part of its acquisition of Palm.

The last couple of weeks have been of sweeping change for HP, especially its webOS division, as the company announced it would kill of every single webOS hardware product until the end of the year.

If you're a regular reader of this site, you're probably aware that HP has recently decided to put its line of webOS hardware to rest, leaving all of the platforms developers wondering what to do next. In response, Microsoft has been offering extensive help to all of the platform's developers develop apps for Windows Phone 7, which has received a phenomenal response.
As we recover from yesterday's complete demise of webOS, new information is reaching the public on how the company employees actually felt the about its products, more specifically the TouchPad, HP's 9.7-inch webOS tablet. At least judging by this report, employees never felt too confident about the device’s hardware in the first place.
How do you know when a product is about to fail? Its sales are sluggish, the press is reluctant to cover it and the product's price is magically slashed. For any fans of HP's webOS devices, too bad, those three things have just happened and HP has officially announced it plans to discontinue its line of webOS devices.
