PreCentral: The "Open webOS on my TouchPad" Haiku Contest: Win a non-webOS gadget of your choice!

Recommended Posts


Yesterday's announcement of HP's intentions to not create a build for Open webOS for the TouchPad made us sad. When we're sad, we express ourselves in haiku form. Don't judge us, we know we're weird with our meter-driven ways. Enough with your judging eyes of judgement! Anyway, once we managed to push through our haiku-addled haze of disappointment, we decided it was time to harness that creative energy and put it to good use: we want you to send a message to HP, and we want you to do it in haiku form.

So here's the deal: we're having a contest! In the comments of this post, submit your haiku entry (we'll be sticking to the tradition 5-7-5 syllabic meter) explaining to HP why they should reconsider their decision to not make Open webOS compatible with the venerable HP TouchPad. Or you can just express your woe and angst over the decision, or what it'll make you do. We want your take on the news, but in haiku form.

And just to make things interesting, the winner's going to receive a prize gadget of their choice, as long as it doesn't run webOS. Yeah, it's a little unorthodox, but it's also to spite HP a bit - if they don't want to give us the update, then we'd be stupid to at least not be looking over our other options. We can only handle this sort of neglect for so long before our friends stage an intervention (again).

Get cracking on those haikus, people! We'll take entries through Tuesday, August 7, and after that we'll post up a poll of the top entries so you all can pick the winner. Everybody's a winner when there's haiku involved, right?
