  1. So did you guys see that smartwatch calling that Audi at CES? Turns out it's openwebos! Exclusive: The hottest smartwatch of CES isn't running Android Wear — it's Open webOS LG and Audi's smartwatch collaboration is the most desirable wearable of CES 2015, and while the carmaker says it's just a prototype, the device offers a tantalizing glimpse of future LG wearables. Or at worst an agonizing look at a beautiful watch we'd love to own. We tracked down the Audi/LG watch — still officially nameless, by the way — in Las Vegas today, and we can exclusively reveal that it's not running Android Wear as originally believed. In fact, it's packing completely different software based on LG's Open webOS. Source: http://www.androidcentral.com/lg-audi-watch-android-wear-webos
  2. I guess this never came out...😞
  3. Is anyone still using theirs?
  4. Did you buy a Firesale HP Touchpad? Share the details... Thankfully, I was able to get one myself, but it took a few tries and ordering it on the HP Business site. By the time I checked all the retailer, they were gone! Snagged a 16GB for $99! I hope you grabbed one also...
  5. I haven't done anything with it yet.
  6. Below is a video just posted of an HP Touchpad tablet running the latest version of Android 5.0 Lollipop.
  7. I just took mine out and have to see what its running.
  8. ENGLEWOOD CLIFFS, N.J., March 24, 2017 The next time you play your favorite video game or stream the newest movie on your favorite subscription service, you will feel as if you're right in the action with the new LG TONE Studio. In stores today at Amazon for $229.00, the LG TONE Studio is LG's newest around-the-neck Bluetooth® wearable speaker (compatible with Bluetooth® audio enabled LG Smart TVs running WebOS*), that lets you experience true surround sound anywhere. "A cinema-like experience doesn't only have to happen at the movie theatres," says Bruce Tripido, LG Senior Director, U.S. Accessories. "With the LG TONE Studio's not one, not two, not three, but four speakers, you can immerse yourself in real 3D Surround Sound when watching a movie, playing a video game, streaming music or simply talking on the phone." Designed in collaboration with surround sound experts, the LG TONE Studio allows you to experience the first DTS®-tuned wireless device for wearable "cinema-like" surround sound through four speakers – two upward firing, full range on the top of the headset and two vibration speakers underneath. What's more is that with Wearable Bass™ special vibration speakers, your body will feel the sound of cinema-like quality bass as if you are right there in the action. And if you want to share the action, you can simply turn on the Dual Play feature which lets you connect two LG TONE Studio wearable speakers and share the sounds from a movie, playlist or more. For times where personal surround sound isn't needed, the LG TONE Studio features the legacy TONE tangle free, retractable earbuds featured in LG's line up of Bluetooth® headsets like the LG TONE UTLRA, LG TONE Active, LG TONE INFINIM and LG TONE PLATINUM. With a simple toggle button, you can switch between speaker mode and earbud mode to enjoy up to 35 hours of music listening time while in earbud mode. And, if you have to take a break from your playlist to take a call, the LG TONE Studio features clear phone calls with up to 40 hours' worth of talk time. Available at Amazon today for $229.00, the LG TONE STUDIO comes in silver and will be available next month at T-Mobile and Verizon stores nationwide.

  17. There are numerous articles on the web saying that LG is bringing webOS 3.0 to its 2016 TV lineup, most likely showcasing it at CES in January. This is good news as LG continues development on webOS. The Verge: http://www.theverge.com/2015/12/21/10636280/lg-smart-tvs-webos-3-update-ces-2016 WebOS 3.0 has a few notable features. You'll be able to split your screen into two different channels at the same time, or one channel and another source like a Blu-ray player. You can also run LG's Music Player app through your speaker setup with the TV turned off, as well as control LG smart appliances using LG's IoTV app. The software's new standout functions, however, are a trio of "magic" features — LG's stand-in for "smart" — aimed at taking advantage of webOS 3.0's deeper hardware integration. Magic Zoom will let you magnify any portion of the screen without any loss in picture quality, according to LG. The company is also updating its Magic Remote so it can toggle set-top boxes on and off and control DVR functions as well. Magic Mobile Connection is an Apple AirPlay-like feature that lets users stream apps from their smartphone to LG smart TVs. None of those appear all that "magic," but they do bring some unique capabilities to webOS 3.0. LG is also updating its interface with new Channel Advisor and Channel Plus recommendation features. Similar to TiVo, Channel Advisor will analyze what and how you watch to predict what you'll want to see and suggest upcoming time slots. Channel Plus will mix in broadcast channels with over-the-top streaming into a unified list, to help remove barriers to how viewers consume live and cable TV versus streaming services like Netflix. ZDNet: http://www.zdnet.com/article/lg-smart-tvs-to-get-webos-3-0/ The company released webOS as open source in the hopes companies like LG would adopt it for commercial products. According to LG it has been developing a major version of webOS for use on its 2016 line of smart TVs. New features in webOS 3.0 include watching videos from two different sources at the same time. It also supports streaming from smartphones to the TV. LG is highlighting three features on webOS 3.0 under the "Magic" brand, including Magic Remote, Magic Zoom, and Magic Mobile Connnection. Magic Zoom is intriguing as LG claims TV owners can magnify objects and text without degrading picture quality. The new smart TVs featuring webOS 3.0 will be launched at the CES next month.
  18. LG webOS 3.5 Is First Smart TV Platform To Attain Cybersecurity Assurance Program Certification ENGLEWOOD CLIFFS, N.J., Feb. 21, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- LG Electronics' webOS 3.5 Security Manager is the first smart TV platform certified for its effective cybersecurity capabilities by UL, one of the world's foremost experts in safety, security and sustainability. View photos The webOS 3.5 Security Manager was tested for malware susceptibility and vulnerabilities, software weaknesses and security controls that help protect users' private information using UL's 2900-1 Cybersecurity Assurance Program (CAP). UL assessed the effectiveness of each webOS 3.5 security layer by subjecting the software to a variety of virtual network penetrations and vulnerability attacks – covered under CWE/SANS Top 25 vulnerabilities – on its applications and system configuration center. "Our webOS platform was developed with security in mind, and receiving this certification from UL, a trusted name in testing and certification, further validates those efforts," said Tim Alessi, head of product marketing at LG Electronics USA. "As more and more consumers embrace smart TVs and their capabilities to connect to other devices, information security is becoming increasingly important. LG's webOS is already considered one of the industry's most intuitive smart TV platforms, and with this new certification, it will continue to set the benchmark for others to follow." LG webOS 3.5's UL CAP certification provides the foundation for home IoT networks composed of multiple connected home appliances. In fact, leveraging its expertise in the smart TV category, LG intends to expand this level of capability to its broad ecosystem of smart home, smart home security and home automation products. UL's 2900-1 tests measure application security, information access control via authentication processes, engineer mode hacking protection and software falsification protection. In addition to being the industry's first smart TV platform to receive UL 2900-1 certification, LG webOS 3.5 has also been certified for its effective Digital Rights Management capabilities within smart TV applications.

WebOS 3.5 also jumps aboard the VR bandwagon. If you connect a webOS 3.5 TV to a VR-capable computer or mobile device via USB cable, you can not only watch 360-degree VR content on your TV but also use the Magic Remote to move the scene in any direction and zoom in and out of the image using the handset’s handy scroll wheel.
