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

Yesterday's announcement of 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?

      When Im playing a movie in an app on my LG OLED TV the screen is turned off after 15 minutter and only showing for the lack of other words its "digital fireworks» and the text "Turn on screen by pressing any button on remote except power button».
      Its really annoying.

      UPDATING YOUR FIRMWARE
       
      The firmware that powers your LG Ultra HD 4K Smart TV with webOS should be updated from time to time to enhance your experience and improve its operation. Thankfully, this can be done easily and quickly, right at home.
      Watch this quick video to learn more. Or follow the easy steps below to get started.
       
       
      HOW OFTEN DO I NEED TO UPDATE MY FIRMWARE?
      Firmware updates don't happen frequently, so you should be fine checking for updates every other month.
      HOW DO I CHECK FOR, AND DOWNLOAD, AVAILABLE FIRMWARE UPDATES?
      Before you do anything, make sure you have an Ethernet cord connected directly from your router to your television. Wireless Internet connections are not reliable enough for firmware updates.
      Use this diagram if you need help getting set up:

      ONCE YOUR TV HAS A WIRED CONNECTION, DO THE FOLLOWING:
      Press the MENU Click SYSTEM SETTINGS Then ABOUT Then SYSTEM UPDATES You'll be advised that your system is currently up to date or requested to select CHECK NOW for the latest update. If a new version is available, it downloads automatically. FIRMWARE UPDATES WILL ALSO UPDATE LG ULTRA HD 4K SMART TV AND LG APPS AT THE SAME TIME.
