Former Palm CEO Jon Rubinstein, the guy who resurrected Palm, is leaving HP's Palm unit (no longer called Palm, to boot). Taking over is Stephen DeWitt, HP's U.S. computer overlord. This isn't good for webOS. In fact, It's terrible.
When webOS was formally unveiled at CES in 2009, Rubinstein, along with Ed Colligan, Matias Duarte, and Sprint's Dan Hesse all took the stage to show off a beautiful smartphone OS basically exploding with promise. But the apps never really came. And I think can count the number of updates my Pre received on a single hand. A year after it came out, I couldn't look at my Pre and not want more.
