Galaxy Nexus Open webOS port goes hi-resWhile we've been watching with glee

, there was a part of us that cringed when we installed the on our Galaxy Nexus. See, the phone has a delightful 1280×720 pixel 4.65-inch screen with a beautiful 316 pixels-per-inch resolution. The webOS phone user interface images dredged up and implemented by Josh Palmer, however, were made for the 320-pixel-wide screens of , excepting the (itself 480 pixels across).

If you're amazing at math like we are, you've likely already figured that the UI images we're talking about here (the dock background, rounded corners, etc) are less than half the size than would be required for a screen of the Galaxy Nexus's caliber. Thankfully, we've got guys working with like and who are willing to step up and rebuild the graphical interface items in the proper resolution.

The clunky scaled-up resolution of the UI items in question here wasn't too evident in the video we posted last week of the progress made on the Galaxy Nexus port (in truth we really just wanted to check out the keyboard), the pixelation that comes from scaling up an image by 225% was too much for our fastidious eyes and persnickety interface tastes. So the full-resolution interface elements concocted by Goodell and Duncan are visual music to our sight-spheres. There's still a lot of work to be done to make the Galaxy Nexus port truly useful, but that they're sweating the small stuff so that it looks awesome when it is ready makes us happy campers.

      webOS updated, I think to 2023, on my C2 a couple of days ago. Since then the News option on the Sky News app no longer works, instead timing out. The Weather and Climate options still work, though.
      I have deleted and reloaded the Sky News app, but the problem remains.
      Does anybody have any suggestions of what I might try to get this working again, or is this something for LG, or Sky, to fix?

      Hey everyone, I've been using my LG WebOS TV for some time now, and there's a small but impactful change I'd love to see. Currently, when the TV is turned on without an HDMI input, it defaults to displaying a wallpaper. It's not aesthetically pleasing, it's a bit of an inconvenience for users like me who primarily use the TV's smart features.My suggestion is to include an option that allows the TV to boot directly into the Home screen, displaying all the available apps and streaming options right away. This would streamline the user experience, making it faster and easier to access the services we use most.Would love to hear the community's thoughts on this. Cheers!
