I'm beginning to fear that my likage curse is affecting tech. (The more I like something, the better the chance that it will fail/close/be taken off the menu/etc.)

I'm hoping that the larger device will be an improvement, but we'll see. The UI still isn't as nice to use as webOS. HTC also just settled with Microsoft, which will likely result in at least a small increase in price per unit.

Now, this:


I suppose there's a tiny bright side in that we're likely to see a webOS tablet, but I remain exceedingly unhappy with my current options.
