    Gone already from my Touchpad

    I recently updated Android on my HP Touchpad to v4.4 KitKat via one of the several CM11 builds available for this device. For a 3+ year old device, the Touchpad continues to be remarkably well-supported by the community, if not by HP. KitKat works a treat on the Touchpad, much better than ICS did. However the install process required a total device wipe, and it was easier to install things without WebOS present at all. So I've said goodbye to WebOS completely now, as it seems have most people. Bit sad to see it go - it had a lot to be said for it, especially when it was released - but times move on.

      I'm AMAZED your battery is still functioning in that touchpad. As for shutting down the cloud services well there is only a couple of hundred users, so it is no biggie

    Never mind WebOS, Ive still got a Palm V, and for what it was intended to do I still think it is the best little PDA you can get.
