A month ago we broke the news that HP's webOS Global Business Unit would be spinning off as a new company called Gram. The company was said to focus on cloud and user experience, leveraging webOS and Enyo along the way. Nothing new has come out about how exactly they're going to do that or when that's going to start happening - that's what happens when you're in stealth mode (which one could easily argue is in effect an admission that there's nothing more than grand plans to announce right now anyway).
We wondered for a short time what URL Gram might secure, as sites like gram.com and gram.net registered as available, but thanks to their actual-word nature would have commanded a high price.
